And on a more local note: I’ll be over at Game Universe Brookfield near Milwaukee tonight to run their FNM, so feel free to stop by if you’re a Magic player and want to get in some games, talk shop, or just do some trades. See you there!
AEG will be offering pre-release events for the Legend of the Five Rings expansion Embers of War during the month of May. Each of these events will feature the promotional rare, Den of Iniquity. Our retail partners, Game Universe, will be hosting pre-releases at both location, date and time TBD.
These pre-release events will begin on May 4th, 2012, and Embers of War will release in full on May 14th.
There is one thing we would like to take time to clarify. In the matter of fairness, and to ensure there is no confusion – Den of Iniquity currently has a legality date of April 1st; given that it is being sent along with the pre-release for Embers of War, and not all stores are able to run their pre-release events at the same time, Den of Iniquity’s printed legality date is no longer correct; instead, it will become legal when Embers of War releases in full to the public on May 14th, 2012.
AEG’s next offering to Stronghold stores for Legend of the Five Rings will include free memberships to the Imperial Assembly. So if you’re a new player and you’re in Milwaukee, be sure to attend some April Tournaments at Game Universe to win a free subscription to the IA for a year
