Appears that the newest legal dodge going around is checking websites to make sure they are ADA compliant, notifing the owner if they are not and threatening a lawsuit over non-compliance. Although we did not receive any notices about non-compliance, we went ahead and made our website compliant today. Better to be safe and follow the law, then be thousands of dollars sorry.

Yu Gi Oh Dark World Structure Deck
Here are the contents of the Dark World Structure Deck, releasing December 2
BOX BREAK: Each deck contains 5 Ultra Rare cards, 3 Super Rare cards, 37 common cards, 1 Double-sided deluxe game mat and dueling guide
Darkness returns this winter with a brand-new Structure Deck: Dark World*
Grapha, Dragon Lord of Dark World first debuted in the game-shaking Structure Deck: Gates of the Underworld and its return is now nigh! Structure Deck: Dark World brings this notorious theme back to the human world with a slew of new features! Here’s just some of what you can expect:
Reign-Beaux, Overlord of Dark World has received a promotion! This new form of Reign-Beaux Level 8 monster with 3000 ATK can Special Summon itself from the Graveyard (GY) simply by returning a Level 7 or lower “Dark World” monster from your field to your hand. If it is discarded to the GY, you can add a Level 5 or higher “Dark World” monster from your Deck to your hand, and if it was your opponent who forced you to discard, watch out…
Reign-Beaux isn’t the only one who’s been waiting for this day for over a decade! The great dragon lord Grapha has a brand-new form as well! The new Grapha is a Fusion Monster Summoned using Grapha, Dragon Lord of Dark World and any other DARK monster. You can Summon it with a new Spell Card that lets you Fusion Summon by discarding cards, triggering the effects of any “Dark World” monsters used as well as other powerful DARK monsters like the “Danger!” monsters. While this new Fusion Monster is on the field, you can hijack an opponent’s Normal Spell/Trap Card or monster effect, turning it into a discard effect that unleashes your “Dark World” monsters’ true power!
This new Structure Deck is playable right out of the box – the Dark World army awaits you!
Each Structure Deck contains:
5 Ultra Rare Cards
3 Super Rare Cards
37 Common Cards
1 Double-sided Deluxe Game Mat/Dueling Guide
We are not currently taking any used boardgames until the end of the month or we sell down some of our current stock. We have too many for the shelf space and have run out of room to store them.
Once traffic picks up again, we will start accepting them for store credit or cash.

Beadle and Grimm Dice
Mildly bemusing that the Beadle and Grimm dice sets spend a lot of valuable package space describing the character class for each dice instead of actually showing the dice. The number one question we have with these dice is: "Uh, what do they look like?" We finally printed out a picture of one of the sets and posted it behind the dice, jsut to give people some idea as to what they are getting. If you are selling a product and its image is very important, be sure to put a picture of it on the package.

Here is Wizards' first look at Dominaria United. It appears that Jumpstart boosters will replace theme boosters. As with regular Jumpstart boosters, players can take two boosters and shuffle them together to make a playable starter deck. Great as a n introduction for beginners but, as with theme boosters, I do not think there will be much interest in them among more advanced players.
