Pulp will be holding four prerelease events for the newest set of Magic the Gathering, Gatecrash, over the weekend of January 26th.  All events will cost $25 to enter, which will provide each player six Gatecrash booster packs (and some other cool swag, as well).  Prizes will be awarded in the form of more Gatecrash boosters, playmats, and other Magic related accessories; payout will be determined by the number of entrants.  Players who arrive late or do not wish to participate in the main event, pay purchase Gatecrash Intro Decks and play casually with other participants during the night.  The events are as follows:

Because we enjoy torturing our customers here at Pulp Fiction, allow me to wave some slick Warhammer 40K miniatures in front of your face then inform you they won’t be on sale until tomorrow.

Yeah, sorry about that.

However, if you are swinging by tomorrow you should look into the new Space Wolves and Necron miniatures for 40K. These include a Wolf Lord on Thunderwolf, Fenrisian Wolf Pack, the Thunderwolf Cavalry, and the new Tyranid Tyrannofex/Tervigon.

Showing its Dungeons & Dragons roots, Thunderstone Advance goes on sale today. Some folks out there may find that surprising to hear because the game isn’t officially scheduled for release until later in the month, but Pulp is allowed to sell the game early as a pre-release benefit. This redesign of the game refines many of the previous version’s elements. Mostly, the game works overtime to give players as many options to tailor their experience as they please. A new two-sided board lets players select the level of difficulty they wish to play as do the new monster card levels. If you’ve never gotten into the game before, but are a fan of D&D and/or Dominion, this is the time to start playing.

Triple the Dominion, triple the fun.

Following in the footsteps of Alhambra and CarcassonneDominion now has its own Big Box edition coming packed with three versions of the now classic deck building game. Those three versions, by the way, are AlchemyProsperity, and the original, base Dominion game. If you’ve never gotten into this hit card game, this is a great way to purchase three of excellent versions of the game for a cheaper price.

Today we also received a restock on some Indy RPGs that need a little love and affection. First up is Umlaut: Game of Metal, a storytelling, GM-less game akin to Fiasco where players create their own heavy metal groups then chart their rise to the top of the heap. On the darker side of things are Hot War and Cold City. Hot War is set after an apocalyptic Cold War-era nuclear barrage, giving gamers a setting of horrific violence and power-jockeying survivors to explore. Cold City is a companion volume set in Berlin after the terrors of WWII. Players command the Reserve Police Agency as they round up monstrous creatures risen from the ashes of the war.

**UPDATED**

Save the date right this moment!  Doooo it!  Wait, you need the date, don’t you?

Okay, Pulp will be holding a pre-release event for Mirrodin Besieged (the second set in the new Mirrodin block) on January 29th, 2011.  It will start at 7:00, as per usual get here at 6:30 or earlier to sign up.

Being a pre-release, this event will be a sealed tournament wherein players receive six packs (3 from Scars, 3 from the Mirrodin Faction you choose) for their entry fee of $25.  Players will build a minimum 40 card deck out of the cards they receive from these six packs.  The tournament will be swiss style, which means players will get to play in every round.  The number of rounds will be determined by the number of players.

Booster drafts and other styles of play may be available based on turn out, but the main tournament will only be a sealed event.

Prizes will be booster packs from the new set, once again, dolled out based off of the number of players in the tournament.
