Commander Legends – Matt’s Commander Musings…

Wizard’s year of commander hasn’t gone as we’d all hoped and expected (Thanks Covid! – Matt). However, that doesn’t mean there’s not reasons to still get excited about the format. Commander groups online are still a hive of activity from people discussing new cards to offering to host games on webcams.

With Commander Legends spoiler season now in full swing people are busy brewing new lists, updating their old favourites and falling in love with the new cards being shown off. I’m firmly on the hype train for this set so I thought I’d take a look at 5 of the legendary creatures spoiled so far which have got my attention to sleeve up for when we eventually return from our hibernation.

Lockdown 2 – Electric Boogaloo: The Langden Games Update!

It’s November 3rd and barring a massive revolt in the Commons, we’ll be back in lockdown again from Thursday! Fun!!

The one (and only) positive about Lockdown 2 – Back in the Habit, is that it’s the second one! Strange as it sounds, we’ve been through this before, so we have experience of how to operate. As a result the shop may be closed but we can still meet your hobby needs.

Set Boosters – My Thoughts….

Now that I’ve actually opened some Zendikar Rising product, I wanted to give my thoughts on the newest type of Booster, the Set Booster!

What is a Set Booster?

In short it’s a new type of product that lets WOTC have a bit more freedom, in a draft booster there is a need for there to be set amounts of Commons and Uncommons and a good colour spread, the same is not true of a set booster!

They have 12 cards (14 with the token and art card included) in a booster and come in boxes of 30 rather than 36, they are also slightly more expensive than draft boosters, all seeming like negatives so far, but don’t worry there are positives!

Langden Games September 2020 Painting Competition

Here are the results of our September 2020 painting competition. We had hoped to run monthly events however Covid-19 has really got in the way of that, however we did manage to get an event successfully run in September!

Standards in this single model competition have been very high and judging was made incredibly difficult by these fabulous models.

Any of these models could have easily been crowned the winner as each was beautifully done.

Matt’s Annual Ramble – A Birthday in Interesting Times…

‘May you live in interesting times…’, I now fully understand why this is seen as a curse! I know that I, for one, would like the much simpler times where global pandemics were movie plots and social distancing was an unused phrase, but as you all know 2020 had other ideas!

The Road to Reopening

The government recently announced that non-essential retail can reopen from 15th June 2020 (yay!), so that raises the question “when will the store reopen?”.

The answer is not the 15th, our plan is to reopen with reduced hours from Saturday 20th June.

Below is a list of questions about our plans around reopening:

What will the store hours be?

We plan to initially open on Saturdays and Sundays only from 10am to 4pm starting from 20th June, we’ll review this on a regular basis starting from July.

Recently a few members of the community were talking about doing a ‘Tale of Gamers’, and we loved the idea so decided to get involved (it also means I may end up with a full painted army! – Matt).

For those that don’t know a Tale of Gamers is where a group get together and all build and paint a new army over a few months – that’s exactly what we plan to do!

Our Tale of Gamers will commence on October 1st 2018 and will run for 6 months. Continue reading Join us for ‘A Tale of Gamers’
