We hope that you are all healthy and safe. As you probably know by now, Governor Inslee has extended the "stay at home" until May 4th 2020. It is very important to protect those who are at risk in our community and although we are having to adjust our business practices we support this decision.
So how is this going to affect our business going forward? In truth there is no telling what the future holds, but we are going to do our best to move things online as much as we can. We have always been a place to gather as a community, so we hope to continue that online during this time.
Here are a few ways you can support us from home:
1) Join our Discord Server. (Thanks for the help setting it up AJ)
We will be using this for events, but it is also just a great way for our community to stay connected.
We have "channels" for Dungeons & Dragons and other Tabletop RPG's, Magic The Gathering, Game Night (Board Games/Online Games), and Warhammer 40K. Be sure to introduce yourself when you join our server and if you have any questions feel free to ask. Here is the link to our server:
2) Play MTG Arena!
Wizards of the Coast is working on ways that they can help game stores, one of which is that they will be allowing us to organize events on MTG Arena soon. We have a few hoops to jump through first but hope to be running events as soon as next week.
In the meantime, you can support us by playing FNM this Friday through MTG Arena. If you play in their FNM event, all you have to do is post a screenshot to our Facebook Page with a nice message showing your support and we will private message you a promo code to redeem in game. If you do not have Facebook, send it via email to AwesomeSomething2015@gmail.com
Did you play in a previous MTG Arena FNM without knowing about this? Send us a message and we will give you a promo code if there is any left.
4) Pre-Order ALL THE THINGS!!
We will be accepting pre-orders on upcoming products. A blog post is coming tomorrow with more details on what special deals we will be offering.
Some of the products available for pre-order include: Ikoria Pre-release kits for at home play, Bundles, Booster Boxes, and Commander Deck Sets.
We will be accepting payment via phone orders and our online shop. If you have reached out to us already about pre-orders you will be first in line.
We will have items available for sale in our online shop tomorrow. We will mostly be focusing on upcoming pre-orders but there will be a few other items available as well. We will be offering FREE DELIVERY to Anacortes and Mt Vernon/Burlington residents.
5) Watch Us on Twitch
We will be streaming MTG Arena, Pokemon TCG Online, and Art Night on Twitch. We will be posting a more detailed breakdown of our streaming schedule soon, but for now if you'd like to follow us this is our channel:
6) Follow us on ALL THE THINGS!!

7) Try not to worry! We'll always be there in spirit!
I'm known for saying "it's fine" or "this is fine" a lot when responding to stressful situations. It's basically my mantra. Right now is a crazy time. Hopefully everything will turn out fine, but regardless the most important thing right now is to keep your sanity (although hopefully we'll be helping with that)
Thank you so much for all of your continued support! If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to contact us!
