Wowzers, I guess no sleep for the crew this month either! Maybe we can get some rest in January...
As you can see, almost every Collectible Card Game we play at the store has a pre-release event in November. The exception is One Piece, which has its anniversary event in December. If you play those games, please sign up as early as you can, and make sure you get your pre-orders in for the new sets.
Used Board Game Auction
It's back baby!
We haven't had an auction in 4 years, and we're pretty excited for this to come back to RRG! This is your chance to turn games that sit on the shelf unplayed into games that will get played! We wrote up a seperate website just talking about how to submit games to the auction & how to buy games other people submit! Check it out here!
Disney Lorcana - Rise of the Floodborn
We have enough info to start talking about Rise of the Floodborn, the 2nd set from Disney Lorcana. Here is what we know right now:
Rise of the Floodborn Pre-Release
This is NOT an offical pre-release - this is your RRG crew trying to make something interesting & exciting for Rise of the Floodborn. We are going to run a pre-release event where each player will get 1 of the Rise of the Floodborn Starter Decks & 3 Rise of the Floodborn booster packs. With the booster pack inside the starter, you have a deck plus 4 packs, which is exactly what a Pokemon pre-release gets. You'll then have 40 minutes to open everything, and build your best deck. We'll run a little 3 round tournament, with 1 booster pack per person in the prize pool.
Seating will be limited to 24 people Saturday Nov 18th & 24 on Sunday Nov 19th. You will be able to sign up for a spot starting Sunday Nov 5th at 2pm.
Rise of the Floodborn Pre-Orders
For everyone who has played in a RRG Lorcana event, either a Learn to Play or a Sunday Lorcana League event, you will have first dibs at pre-orders. While we are getting a little bit more than last time, it's still not going to be enough to go around. Everything is going to be while supplies lasts.
First up are the Rise of the Floodborn bundles. The bundle will be 1 random starter deck, 6 packs, either a Disney 100 Gift Set or an Illumineers Trove, 1 pack of sleeves (either Sisu or Mulan) and 1 deckbox (either Sisu or Mulan). We are not taking any requests for what is in these bundles. We're going to randomly pack them, and once they are gone, they are gone. $144.99
If you aren't interested in a bundle, each Lorcana event participant will also be able to buy 1 Starter Deck for $19.99 plus 6 packs for $44.99.
If you have not participated in any of our previous Lorcana events, you will be able to buy 1 Starter Deck for $19.99 plus 3 packs for $21.99.
Our goal is to once again give as many folks as possible the ability to get a starter and some packs to learn how to play Lorcana. We will be running a Learn to Play Lorcana event again. Dates to be announced.
Preorders for Lorcana Rise of the Floodborn will start Sunday Nov. 5th at 4pm.
Theoretically there is a Set 1 Wave 2, a Set 1 Reprint, and a Set 2 Wave 2 as all upcoming. We still don't have any new info other than "before Christmas". It is driving us nuts just like you with the lack of information.
I think those are the big things we want you to know for now. Shoot us a mesage to firstname.lastname@example.org or send a message to our FB page if you have any questions.
Also, did you know we are rocking a Red Raccoon Games Linktree? You can find links to all our social media accounts, plus our Red Raccoon Radio podcast now has over 100 subscribers! You can also get a link to our Discord server, which is where most of our communities are organizing now that Facebook doesn't actually show you everything anymore.
