Upcoming events this week

Monday, April 29

Optimism Brewing Company – 1158 Broadway, Seattle, WA 98122 – 5 p.m.

Casual Play

We have a steady group of players in Capitol Hill! We’re excited to get more folks into our little crew, so come play! Optimism has lots of space and beer, plus you can bring food in. Pretty ideal!

Tuesday, April 30

Math ‘n’ Stuff Events – Activity Annex – 9212 Roosevelt Way NE, Seattle, WA 98115 – 7 p.m.

Allies of Necessity Draft Release Event – 7 p.m. – 11 p.m.

Come try out the new Allies of Necessity draft kit this Tuesday!

Given that Convergence also just released, we will be using that set for draft/sealed, with the potential of adding other recent sets at players’ request. Mikaela will be TO-ing the event. Hope to see you there!

Allies of Necessity features twenty new cards that can be used to supplement your pool of cards and provide a base for your draft or sealed event, while also providing new options in constructed deck building!

Like Rivals before it, players just need a copy of Allies of Necessity and six Star Wars: Destiny booster packs to participate in their very own draft or sealed event! What’s more, the cards in your Allies of Necessity Draft Set are completely reusable—no matter how many drafts you play, you’ll only ever need to buy a single copy of Allies of Necessity to enable your draft games of Star Wars: Destiny!

Hi, Star Wars: Destiny fans!

Starting this April, we will be launching Star Wars: Destiny Store Seasons!

On every Friday in April to June, we will have events that will range from draft to Standard constructed and even Infinite. Depending on the number of wins you get in an event, you will garner points and will have a running tally and season ranking at Geeky Villain. At the end of the season, all points will be tallied and the season winners (and perhaps even a few runner-ups) will get amazing prizes!

There is more to come, but we’re wanting to start out with a bang—the first Season Championship Prize will be a brand new Star Wars Ultimate Vinyl Collection 12P and a Bluetooth turntable!

I hope many of you are as excited as we are!
Please inquire with questions that you may have.

Thank you very much, and as always, please Stay Geeky!

Draft Tournament

The event will have a $15 entry fee. Each player will need their own draft set, which will provide a core set of cards (bring your own or borrow one from us). All players will receive six boosters and will build a deck by choosing cards one at a time.  Players get to take their cards home at the end of the day.  The top finishers will get first pick of the legendary cards.

Draft Details

  • Each player opens three boosters at a time.
  • Players pick cards to keep one at a time, passing the rest of the cards to their neighbor.
  • Decks are built using the 20 cards from the player’s draft set + the 30 cards they drafted.
  • Team character points in a deck must equal 30 points or less.
  • Blue, Red, and Yellow cards can only be used if you have a matching character.  Gray cards can always be used.
  • Hero, villain, and neutral cards can all be used together regardless of character affiliation in the deck.
