All Fun & Games Moving: 220 W. Chatham

All Fun & Games has finalized plans to move the business to downtown Cary this weekend. As a result, we will be closed for the move on May 18th and May 19th (this coming Saturday & Sunday); the store will be re-opened in the new location on Wednesday, May 22nd, whereupon our regular draft and retail operations will continue.

Our new address will be 220 W. Chatham St., Cary, NC 27511. A map of the location can be found here (Google Maps). The building is located centrally in downtown Cary and is surrounded by some excellent local businesses, including Roma's Italian (pizza / Italian food) within a 1-minute walk, Ashworth's, Maximilian's, Blue Moon Bakery, and Little Caesar's. You can find a map to local restaurants here

Our new location is seen above. We have our own, separate side-entrance that's located on the mural side of the building. Coming from N. Harrison, we're located immediately after the train tracks, past Roma's, and across from the train station. The parking lot is in front of the painted wall.

Other than that, all our events and product offerings are staying largely the same. We'll have a few new Magic products in stock shortly that we're excited to carry, but there'll be more info on that at a later time. We're remaining open at the current location through FNM this Friday, but will be closed on May 18th & 19th (Sat/Sun) to move. Come see our new store on May 22nd and draft!

Return to Ravnica Constructed Deck Events

Are you itching for a chance to take your new Return to Ravnica cards for a spin? This is your perfect opportunity! All Fun and Games is launching a new Magic: The Gathering event series, starting October 13th. We will be hosting a constructed deck tournament every Saturday at 11:00. The only cards that are going to be legal in the event are the soon-to-be-released Return to Ravnica set, and the M13 Core Set. With just a $6 entry fee and a mere 8 player minimum, your chances are pretty good to win...

FABULOUS PRIZES! The first two places each week will be awarded a high-value foil card that will be announced each week. Watch Facebook for more announcements. Further prize support will be determined by the number of participants.

So after you've loaded up on your Return to Ravnica booster boxes (we are now taking pre-orders for October 5 delivery!), put your newly acquired cards together in a new and exciting deck! Will you overload, unleash, detain, populate, or scavenge?

Return to Ravnica Event Details

Return to Ravnica Pre-Release Weekend Events, September 29 and 30

All Fun & Games is now taking pre-registrations for our Return to Ravnica Pre-Release Events. We are hosting $25 sealed-deck events at the following times:

MIDNIGHT RELEASE EVENT: Friday-- 11:59 PM

Saturday: 10AM & 3PM; Two-Headed Giant at 2PM

Sunday: 10AM and 2PM

Registrations begin one hour before the event start time, and space is limited. Please call us at 919-468-6322 or stop in during business hours to reserve your spot today!

Guild Information

We are not currently taking pre-registrations for guild assignments. Assignments will be made by lottery at registration.

Here's how it will work: each participant will place his or her name in two "hats" for first and second choice guilds. This amount will exceed the allotted player amount for the guild. Then names will be drawn out of each hat, one at a time, until that guild has reached its maximum for the event. If your name is not drawn for your first or second choice guild, you will be assigned a guild. It's far from perfect, but it gives everyone an equal chance.

The number of members for each guild will be based on the number of entrants. We will need to have roughly equal numbers of participants in each guild for each event. So, unfortunately, we will not be able to accommodate all guild requests.

Questions? Call or stop by and we will do our best to answer them.
