"In Ogre News..."

Summer is starting to wind down. We’re looking forward to cooler temps and our personal favorite season, Fall! Here’s a summary of what you can look forward to starting in September.

Special Store Hours and Events

Mon 9/2: Labor Day — We’ll be open on Labor Day for regular business hours, 11am – 9pm. Celebrate the last unofficial day of Summer with us! Bring your minis to either paint, or to play a game.

Sat 10/5: Denizen Fall Potluck and Game Day — Our next Denizen social activity and game day is scheduled for Saturday 10/5 at 11am. Bring your favorite Fall snack or dish to share, along with miniatures for a couple of featured games. (As usual, sign-ups are required for the potluck portion.) Look out for announcements on social media.

Big Events

Warhammer 40k “King of the Den” ITC Tourney: Heat 1 takes place on Sat 9/14, and Heat 2 on Sat 9/28, with the Championships scheduled for Sat 10/12. Please visit the links for all player requirements. You may only sign up for one heat.

Bolt Action Operation Market Garden Event: This large-scale WWII event will take place Sat 10/19. Sign-ups will be open in September. Watch for the announcement on social media!

Bolt Action Korea Event: We’ll be venturing into Korean War-era battle on Sat 11/9. Be sure to purchase your minis and have them prepped in time! This will also be the last major Bolt Action event for 2019.

Schedule Changes and New Activities

Minis Paint Day — Our official paint day at the Den is moving to Sundays, beginning 9/1. While Minis Paint Night will no longer be scheduled on Tuesday evenings, please note you can come in ANY day/evening to paint! (But be sure to check the calendar beforehand to make sure paint stations will not be used for a scheduled RPG, class, or other event.) We offer table space and special lighting to help you get your minis projects completed. And Paint Day is an ideal time to get help and tips from fellow hobby gamers, whether you’re building a magnificent army, or prepping minis for a current role-playing adventure.

Friday Night Gaming — We’re injecting a variety of games for EACH of the four Fridays in September and October. Drop in starting at 6pm for the following:

  • 9/6 and 10/4 — A Song of Ice and Fire
  • 9/13 and 10/11 — Key Forge
  • 9/20 and 10/18 — Star Wars Legion
  • 9/27 and 10/25 — Board Game Night

And for our Regular Programming…

Our other weekly and monthly activities will remain on their regularly-scheduled days and times. These include Age of Sigmar/Warcry Open Play (Sundays), Warhammer 40k/Kill Team Open Play (Thursdays), Warlords of Erehwon Open Play (first Saturdays), and Konflikt ’47 (every other 3rd Saturday).
