LCG Game Day

FANTASY FLIGHT GAMES LCG Game Day

“A Living Card Game® (LCG®) offers an innovative fixed distribution method that breaks away from the traditional Collectible Card Game model. While LCGs still offer the same dynamic, expanding, and constantly evolving game play that makes CCGs so much fun, they do away with the deterrent of the blind-buy purchase model that has burned out so many players. The end result is an innovative mix that gives you the best of both worlds!

The Core Set is the heart of a LCG. Each LCG’s Core Set is a completely self-contained game experience packed with content, including high-quality game pieces and immersive game aides designed to enhance play. Additionally, each Core Set contains multiple decks that provide an exciting and infinitely replayable game experience right out of the box.” – Fantasy Flight Games

Come on down and play your favorite LCG’s! Each friday we will focus on a specific game but encourage open play for all LCG’s! Open play for Arkham Horror, Game of Thrones, Legend of the Five Rings, and Android: Netrunner and The Lord of The Rings Living Card Games! Our own event organizer will be present to demo those games available each evening.
