I confess, time seems to have lost all meaning over the last few years (thanks Covid!) and as such this ramble is a little later than planned. But anyway, let’s get rambling!
Looking Back at 2022!
2022 was the first full year we’ve had in our new premises. To say we were apprehensive about moving would be the most understated statement that had ever been understated! But after what is now 14 months in our new location we’re looking forward to the future!
As it stands today the move was definitely the right choice! We’ve seen loads of new customers, have a proper street presence, and have much more space! Admittedly at heart I’m still nervous about the move, especially with the looming spectre of recession on the horizon and the cost of living crisis that is having an impact on everyone. However these are things that are outside on my control, and all we can do is focus on the store and what were doing and hope that with continued customer support we’ll keep going from strength to strength!
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.
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!
‘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!
MotM is Langden Games monthly model painting competition, to enter you need to bring in your model by 12 noon on the last Saturday of each month, it’ll then be voted on by visitors to the shop. The winner is whoever gets the most votes. That person will get a Model of the Month certificate and will be in with a chance of winning Model of the Year!
