We are rolling out some changes regarding our Friday Night Magic events, but I would like to stress two things before diving into the patch notes:
1.) These changes go into effect December 26th, so our tournament this Friday will be exactly as it has always been.
2.) If these changes go as intended, you will not notice a difference.
Now, having cleared that up, lets move on to the changes.
1.) FNM is now scheduled to start at 6:30 instead of 6:00. This is designed to help out out 9-5′ers of the world, particularly those who commute from Lynden.
2.) If you pay your FNM entry fee in store credit, it will cost an additional $2.50. I repeat: the price will remain at $6.50 if you pay in cash/debit/credit, but will rise to $9.00 if you pay in store credit.
3.) The Guaranteed prize structure that we’ve all come to know and love is turning into a graduated prize structure based on attendance. The details of which can be found at friday-night-magic page (there is a link on the bar to the left, see it?)
NOTICE: the prize structure remains identical for events with 25 – 36 participants.
We’re pleased to announce that we are teaming up with Lydia Place to put on a toy drive to help bring Christmas to the people and families that use their services. Starting immediately and lasting through December 22nd, for each toy or game donated in good condition, we will also donate one item of the same type.
Stop by and make a donation. If you don’t have anything to donate, then buy something, and donate it. We will not be accepting cash donations.

That leaves only Sunday to come by and get your chance to win. We’ll be open from Noon to Five, and we hope to see you there!
Last Friday (October 17th) we saw an outstanding turnout of 38 participants. This week we’ll clear off another table, and be able to support 42-44 players (which I don’t anticipate, but feel the need to be prepared for.)
Next Friday is Halloween. I anticipate a smaller turnout, and want to do something special. It may just be a night of standard, candy, and maybe costumes, but I’m curious to see if any of you have any wonderful ideas about how we should celebrate the night. Drop a comment, and I’ll be sure to consider it.
Until next time, enjoy this picture of Halli Forsman’s Jack-o-Lantern of sorts ‘Gourdy the Gallant Goblin’
I want to suggest to all comic subscribers and could-be subscribers that they take a look at the following link.
At this site you can find a list of all the comics that are available to be ordered. This does not mean that we’ll have all of these in stock, but if you let us know that you want a copy, we can make sure we get one when they come out. This link will also be available on our ‘links’ page, so feel free to check it out weekly/monthly/whenever to stay current on upcoming issues.
Friday, September 26th marks the release of Khans of Tarkir. Our FNM tonight is standard, meaning the legal sets include Theros, Born of the Gods, Journey into Nyx, Magic 2015, and Khans of Tarkir. The event is $6.50 and begins at 6.
You should anticipate 4-5 rounds of Swiss followed by a cut to the top 8. Players will receive 1 booster pack as a prize for a match win in each of the first three swiss rounds. Top 4 prize payout is as follows.
1st – $100 store credit and a Promo Banishing Light
2nd – $50 store credit and a Promo Banishing Light
3rd/4th – $15 store credit and some booster packs
5th/8th – Some booster packs.
The Khans of Tarkir prerelease has come and gone, with 4 sealed events and 2 drafts all happening in a 48 hour period. This means that we now have a Khans of Tarkir binder along with several chase cards in the case, including a foil Sarkhan!
Friday, September 26th marks the release of Khans, at which point pre orders can be picked up and sealed product can be purchased. We will be celebrating by a midnight draft on Thursday (technically the beginning of Friday). So come on down and get involved.
We had a great time at Barkley theaters celebrating the release of Thor: The Dark World.
“The Wheel of Fun” got a work out and gave away hundreds of comic books, squishy head toys, t-shirts and some pretty awesome Thor action figures.
Later this weekend the theater will be picking the winner of the bigger prizes so make sure to check your E-mails.
We’d also like to send out a special thanks to the Barkley theater along with all its staff for hosting a great event, and how could we ever forget Pete and Martha who are a much appreciated part of Cosmic Comics.
If you were one of the few who didn’t receive a coupon because we ran out,
