A Game of Thrones CaliCon III 

Game of Thrones EpicOver the years CaliCon has evolved from a small gathering of friends/AGoT players to a large scale tournament boasting 20+ players from all over the state including world class talent like 2005 World Champion, John Bruno and local KublaCon legend, Kevin Yin. Both previous years the coveted CaliCon Cup, the first place prize, has been claimed by Mr. Bruno, but with his recent withdrawal from the AGoT scene, this years Cup will be graced with a new champion's name.

CaliCon is a wonderful event for all levels of players, from beginner to advanced to Kevin (who quite frankly is in a league of his own). We encourage casual, friendly tournament play while offering that competitive edge every card player desires.

Just bring your imagination, a pencil or pen, and some dice!

Collectors loved the cards for the amazing artwork and special features; gamers loved the strategy and balanced complexity of a game they could play with friends, in local competitions, or at tournaments. The Pokémon Trading Card Game continues to get better and better.

About the Game Center
How does the game center work?
The game center is always open during business hours. You can use the game center to play hobby games, at no charge. Occasionally, there are special events that require an entry fee, but the money is usually used as prize support for the event. The game center is intended as a community center, as opposed to a profit center for the store. By supporting the community, our community supports us back by buying our games.

Where can I find out about center events?
You can view the calendar online here. We also post events on several boards in the store, including a friend finder bulletin board where you can post requests for fellow gamers. You are strongly encouraged to create your own events for in-store play. If you don't see one you're interested in, consider proposing one to a staff member. Most of our events evolve this way. Our only requirement is that your event be open to everyone and be related to products we sell.
