Seafarers Week 2, Madness, Charity

This week at Merlin’s Beard we’ve got week 2 of our Catan: Seafarers league, a Maddening kick-off to our October give away and some news on the charitable front.

October Madness!

They’re coming to take us away! HA HA! Merlin’s Beard and Gryphon Gaming will be giving away a free copy of Pandemic: Reign of Cthulu on October 27th. There is no purchase necessary to enter the drawing but we are preparing an achievement list and throwing in a free sandwich for anyone that completes all the achievements by Sunday, October 30th!

Here is just a sampling of what we are planning:

  • Mansion of Madness (2e) demo on Thursday, October 13th.
  • Pandemic: Reign of Cthulu demos on Thursdays: October 7th, 21st, and 28th.
  • Merlin’s Maddening Month Achievement List
  • Halloween Party Weekend October 28th through 30th.
  • Hogwarts Party October 14th.

Catan: Seafarers Week 2

It’s a tight race after week 1 between rivals Beth (14 points) and Kevin (0 points)… wait… no its not. First, Mike is killing it, second, Kevin piddled his time away last Tuesday playing not-Catan. Its a strange strategy and we’re not sure how this is going to pan out. Join us on Tuesday, October 4th and find out!


Karmel Strong and GradSEA Fundraising Events

Merlin’s Beard was proud to host our first two fundraisers this weekend. First, on Friday, saw a crowd of graduate students in for an evening of beverages and games. Merlin’s is proud to be writing a check for $50 to that organization. The second, on Sunday, was for a friend and his family as they battle the onset and complications associated with cancer. We were able to raise $200 ourselves and an additional $75 in patron donations. If you have a fundraising idea, please feel free to come in and chat with me.
