Thanksgiving Weekend Sale and Activities

Posted by ShowcaseComicsandGames on November 23, 2014 at 10:15 PM Comments comments (0)

We were undecided on when to have our Thanksgiving sale this year.

Friday? But everyone is running crazy Friday and tired.

Wednesday? Early shopping and people aren't tired, but what if you're getting ready for feasting the next day?

Thrursday? Nope, never being that crazy. We'll leave that to Walmart. I'm eating turkey and watching football

Small Business Saturday? 

In the time tested tradition, we have decided to forego any decision making, and just have a sale on all three days. That's right, our Black Friday sale now stretches from Wednesday at 10am to Saturday at 9pm. Think you can find time in that long stretch to run on by for some bargains? Hope so, because these are some great prices on some great Games and Comics. 

Sale Discounts:

Graphic Novels, Books, Trade Paperbacks, Artbooks, and anything else bookish: 25% 

Back issues in the bins: 40% discount

Back issues on display or in Silverage Bins 25% discount

Boardgames, Card Games, CCG singles, and any game not covered elsewhere: 25%

Games Workshop, Warmachine, Flames of War, Alls Quiet on the Martian Front, and Malifaux: 30%

And if you get bored this weekend and need something to do, we have lots going on. Below are the activities for the Swarthmore store. Give Chris a call at the Bryn Mawr store for their list of activities.

Wednesday: Duneons and Dragons  and Magic the Gathering Draft

Thursday: Closed

Friday: Friday night Magic, open wargaming and painting.

Saturday: Game Meetup and anything goes. We'll be moving Boardgames with Amanda to Saturday, plus there will be painting, and wargaming all day. Mike is making Chili Dogs for anyone that shows up to game. 

Board Game Night with Amanda!

Are you ready to team up with your fellow board gamers tomorrow and search for treasure?! Well come join us Thursday at 6:30 for some adventuring fun!


Escape: The Curse of the Temple is a cooperative game in which players must escape (yes...) from a temple (yes...) which is cursed (yes...) before the temple collapses and kills one or more explorers, thereby causing everyone to lose.


Sounds pretty amazing to me and I snakes!

Oct. 30th, 5pm to 9pm. All Quiet on the Martian Front

Martian Invasion is Coming! Showcase needs brave recruits to send the Tripods back to the Red Planet!!!


On October 30th we'll have Ed Spettigue up to the Swarthmore store for an evening of 'All Quiet on the Martian Front'. This is a small scale miniature game with a story taken from War of the Worlds. The martians return to earth in force right around the time of World War 1. It's steam powered tanks and cavalry on Harley Davidsons vs. tripods and heat rays. Pick a side and roll some dice. All models supplied by us and no knowledge of the game needed. We'll be setting up a huge table and playing out a large game. We'll also have hot steak sandwiches, pizza, and cold drinks to keep you going. You can stay for the evening or just roll dice for an hour. All up to you. We'll probably set up and run an early game and a late game. Fun starts at 5pm and runs to 9pm or later.
