Car Wars

 Received the 6th edition of Car Wars today (and people complain about 5 editions of D&D). Nice big box. We have 3 copies of the game at $124.99 and 1 of each of the add ons available as well. The game is supposed to go into distribuiton eventually but the add ons are a one shot. Also, if you buy a copy of the game, leave your contact info as SJG shipped them missing some counters which we are supposed to receive later.

 Just a reminder that we will not do any large trades after 8 p.m. If you bring in a single card or a few RPG books for us to look at, that is fine. however, if you bring in a whole stack of books or boxes full of cards after 8 p.m wanting to trade anything, we will ask you to either leave them until the following day or bring them back before 8 p.m. the next day. By 8 p.m we are getting ready to start cleaning up and closing for the day and would not be able to give your trades an appropriate amount of attention.

Pokemon Play Moving

 Pokemon play is moving from Monday night to Saturday morning starting this Saturday at 1:30 am to 12:30 p.m. With Isaiah moving to a new job, we decided to move it to a more school friendly time slot so that parents did not have to worry about their kids coming here on a school night.

SIUC Homecoming

  SIUC Homecoming parade starts at 10 a.m. tomorrow, although lineup of floats and bands starts at 8 a.m. The line up of floats and bands will fill up S. Washington and East Mill so be sure to avoid that area the morning of the 16. The acual parade Starts at Mill and Illinois, goes up Mill to College, left on College to University then down University to the Univeristy grounds. I heard some talk of the parade going an extra block up to Cherry and then over to University so you may want to avoid that area until noon.
