March 21st - Brimstone Board Game Night featuring: Pandemic

It's time for Brimstone Board Game Night!

The Windsor Gaming Resource returns to Brimstone Games on Saturday March 21st.

Brimstone Board Game Night hits on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of every month. These events normally run from 5pm to 10pm and are open to all ages. This particular event will run 6-11 though due to a Magic the Gathering event going on at the store.

Reminder:
At Brimstone all board games are 30% off all the time.

You can win a board game! 

Every Board Game Night at 8pm the store will draw 1 ticket and the winner will receive a free board game! Sometimes we get extra generous and give away more than one. Heck one night we gave away 6. No matter what there will be at least 1 game given away every event.

Players earn 1 ticket for playing games, 1 ticket for purchasing a snack or drink, and 1 ticket for bringing 1 or more board games for people to play. Earn 5 more tickets for each game you purchase. First time players will receive 5 additional tickets.

You can find Brimstone at 3298 Walker Rd. Parking is available on the south side of the building and on the street around back. Note that Brimstone used to be located in McGregor. This is no longer the case, they moved into Windsor just over a year ago.

Featured Game: Pandemic

Over the last month it seems like everyone and their brother has been sick. Due to this it seems appropriate that we have a Pandemic themed game night.

Pandemic is a hugely popular co-op board game where the players work together to cure four strains of disease. It's wickedly hard at first but has a scalable difficulty for those who think they have mastered the game.

The game is currently released in it's 2nd edition (which made a few minor updates to the look and play of the game). Along with the base game there are also a growing number of expansion each of which changes the game in a different way.

There's even a Pandemic dice game out now called: Pandemic The Cure. This is a great alternative to the original that's much quicker and has less of an Alpha gamer problem.

As part of this event we will be giving away a copy of the latest Pandemic Expansion: State of Emergency.

Pandemic State of Emergency:

Saving the world just got a little bit harder!
Three new challenges await you in this new expansion for Pandemic:

- The Hinterlands Challenge: the diseases are spreading from animals to humans…

- The Emergency Events Challenge: unpredictable Events have nasty effects on the game…try to use Quarantines to stop the spread of disease across the board…

- The Superbug Challenge: a fifth disease that cannot be treated threatens the world! Produce vaccine doses after finding its cure in order to fight off this threat. You must eradicate the superbug disease to win.

This expansion is NOT for the faint of heart...
