  1. February. Or, as it's known in Rokugan, the Month of the Tiger, and the twelfth month of the year. Close out your year (again) in style with Around the Table's monthly Legend of the 5 Rings tournament!Entry will be $10, and the tournament will begin at 2pm. Players are expected to have a 'Deck List' (see below) filled out and turned in to the Store before the first round, but these will also be provided at the shop if someone forgets their copy. The Prizes up for grabs are up in the air at the moment, but we have a backstock of nifty promos and will sub in fun stuff (chocolates TBD) in case the Season 4 Stronghold Kit is not in, plus ice cream and other shenanigans based on attendance.So practice that Bushido and we'll see you in February! _________________________________________Full tournament rules can be found here: https://images-cdn.fantasyflightgames.com/filer_public/d6/75/d675d4f5-f351-4fab-98ff-58cf867b88c2/l5c_tournament_regulations_v23.pdfOfficial Clan roles for deckbuilding: https://goo.gl/MhCVyZBlank Deck lists can be found here: https://images-cdn.fantasyflightgames.com/filer_public/b4/e9/b4e97aba-9b95-4bc9-9818-7d28b8664dee/l5r-deck-list.pdfFor more discussion and updates on our L5R events check out our Living Card Game (LCG) fans at Around the Table group.

  3. We ended with a non-stop march to victory by Crane. Phoenix didn't even make top 3! Around the Table is now run by the delicate Crane clane! It will be interesting to see who takes Geek Fortress in a few weeks.
  4. The Game Shops in and around the North End (Hint: Above Seattle) are banding together to create a fun, challenging tournament series for our Legend of the Five Rings' players this Summer! At its heart, L5R is a game of competitive play. Players in the area need a way for this kind of play to exist, and so we are rewarding participants not only for putting together exceptional decks but also for showing up to different stores' events! It's no fun playing Scorpion if the silly honor obsessed Crane aren't present... We are kicking it off at Around the Table Gamer Pub with a $10 Stronghold Battle at 1pm the Saturday of May 26th. While prizes will probably include ice-cream of some sort, we will also feature promos from the official Stronghold kit which contain some of the finest items FFG has ever put out. Exact details for events will very shop to shop, but we can probably agree that they should be fun and we all encourage L5R players to show up when they can. To that end, each tournament participant will get a Clan Point for each event they attend. Clan Points are tracked and can be spent at each of the host stores for various promos, unique cards or other prizes. Groovy. So get your bushi butt out there and let's create a great L5R scene in the North End! Current list of events and more details overall can be found on the official Event Series page, but just to get you started....: Saturday May 26th -- Around the Table in Lynnwood - Stronghold Tournament #1 (Phoenix Controlled) - $10 - Stronghold kit promos plus Ice Cream Saturday June 9th -- Dreamstrands Comics in North Seattle - Phoenix Clan Pack Release Tournament - $5 - 'Disciples of the Void' Release promos and playmats Saturday June 16th -- Geek Fortress in Snohomish - Battle for the Stronghold - $5 - Battle for the Stronghold kit promos plus Credit Saturday June 30th -- Zulu's Boardgame Cafe in Bothell - Battle for the Stronghold - $5 - Battle for the Stronghold kit plus Full Art Promo
  5. "What a piece of work, this one. Barges into our office, tells us he needs to find a VIP, ASAP. What do we look like, a a bunch of twi’lek servants? Yeah, yeah, it’s true that missing persons cases are kind of me and Detective Tozr’s bread and bepps. But old General Lando Calrissian? If that human wants to be hidden, he is probably going to stay hidden. Ah well, we will do what we can do. My salary doesn’t seem to care either way.” - Detective Gwad Raatu, Coruscant Security ForceThe game is afoot! Welcome to the Case of the Missing Calrissian, a Star Wars Destiny League at Around the Table with a little bit of mystery thrown in for kicks. So sit back, embark on a little dice rolling adventure, and collect clues to help locate the missing Lando Calrissian! How do you participate? Elementary, my dear player. Every Tuesday night while the League is in session, play some matches with other opponents. Great play is important, as league points are earned from your wins, losses as well as attendance. The league points in turn will net you promos at the end of the 6 weeks of games. But don't neglect the mystery! Over time players will collect clues, in the form of puzzle pieces, that will reveal a scene from a Star Wars film. On the last League night, all detectives in attendance will try and put the puzzle together--so to speak--and then submit their best guess as to the exact frame, second, minute and hour into a specific film the scene is from. The sleuth who can best guess where Lando is located will win an extra special prize.

We are looking at a 3 to 4 round swiss tournament.Entry is $10 and goes completely towards prize support. Of course the new Summer Prize kit promos will make an appearance, but depending on attendance there could be much more at stake!It all begins at 7pm. See you there!

  7. Well would you look at that! Our Armada Tournament kit finally arrived. In its honor we are hosting a $10 entry, 3-round Armada Tournament, maxing at 8 players. We'll have the Summer kit for prizes, in addition to ships and other stuff depending on the number of players. Sign up early by calling the store or talking to us in person. The tournament begins at 11:30am, and we will shoot for 400pts per player, with a 15 minute set-up time and 150 minute rounds. With the impending release of Wave 3, it should be fun!

  8. Around the Table's new Summer League is up! Drop by on Thursdays between 6 and 10pm for a load of X-Wing action, this time with fun rules for flying 'Canon' squadrons. Not not canon like "this canon will send an Ewok squealing through the air at approximately 20 kubas per second", but more like "IG-88B never took over the Death Star II in the redacted Canon!? WHAT!?" For more information, including a complete list of the included 'Canon' squadron rules we came up with, check out our FFG forum post here - https://community.fantasyflightgames.com/topic/224952-lynnwood-wa-x-wing-summer-league-canon-theme/
  9. Take a look! It's in a book!RTT's new Summer League! New to X-Wing? Have a buttload of minis but no one to play against? Join us every Thursday from 6pm on for a fun romp that is fully loaded with ways to earn League points towards fun promo prizes! Plenty of table space (usually) and lots of ways to play. Most players will participate in 1-on-1 100pt dogfights, but this League we are also giving bonus points to folks flying Squadrons that would legitimately fly together in the Canon/Expanded Universe. Need to know what those are? We have a huge selection of squadrons that you can fly for each faction and be within the 'Canon' rules. We have it on our Facebook Event Page as well, but you can find our League Sheet including the Canon rules at the bottom. Don't have 5 A-Wings for Green Squadron? Don't sweat it! Remember, building a Canon squadron is optional and only earns you bonus points. Keep in mind we would love to get feedback and corrections, as it took a lot of cross-referencing Wikis to complete, and mistakes were most definitely made. We also do not speak to the balance of these builds. But it's just so fun! The League ends August 18th. See you soon. Around the Table is an all-ages boardgame store and family pub sandwiched between Lynnwood and Edmonds, just a 15 minute jaunt north of Seattle via I-5.

  14. We have enough for 4 more teams--we are not allowing an odd-number happen, as round byes in a two round tournament are...yeah, no thanks. So hurry and let us know if you are still interested!
  15. We all love killing off those who we hold dear. Right? Especially after Thanksgiving... If that's the case for you and you also happen to play the new excellent Game of Thrones Living Card Game (2nd Edition), we'd love to have you come by on the Sunday of the 29th at 1:30pm and test out your latest decks in a tournament of skill! Entry is $5 and includes a free non-alcoholic drink, because killing can make you awfully thirsty. We are looking at doing 3 or 4 rounds Swiss based on participation, with prizes including a Game of Thrones Playmat and promos from the latest tournament kit--assuming it is available. Otherwise we will have to get creative. Very creative. Around the Table is all ages and located between Lynnwood and Edmonds, just 10 minutes north of Seattle on I-5.
