November Marks The Fantasy Shop's 35th Birthday! And We'll Be Celebrating With a Moonlight Sale!

Not a lot of comic book or gaming stores make it into their 35th year of business. There are lots of opportunities to fail in any business. So when a business in any industry hits a momentous anniversary it's certainly reason to celebrate.

We'll be doing just that over the next few weeks. 

This Saturday, the 19th of November...

is Local Comic Shop Day and there will be some great offerings on hand at all of our stores. Limited edition items only available in brick & mortar retail locations. It's the second year of this event and there are a lot of cool items that we'll be happy to help you add to your collections!

Next Friday, the 25th of November...

from 11 PM - 1 AM, at all of our stores, we'll be having a Moonlight Sale to help you finish out your Black Friday Shopping and get an early start on your Small Business Saturday shopping! Everything in the stores will be at least 20% off!

For more details about each of the events and for other information including further information regarding the moving of our Florissant store to Creve Coeur make sure to check out the Facebook pages of each of the locations (St. Charles, Florissant/Creve Couer, Maplewood, & South County)!

Magic: Born of the Gods Game Day at Florissant

This was also the first time we've recorded "feature matches" here, which is something we'll be continuing to do for Saturday Afternoon Magic and other Magic events moving forward. After five rounds, here's how the Top 8 shook out: Florissant Fantasy Shop Born of the Gods Gameday, Top8 Decklists

The Fantasy Shop is Proud to Present Theros Prerelease Events

The plane of Theros is ruled by a pantheon of all-powerful gods. Krakens, minotaurs, and other monsters threaten the safety of walled cities. Heroes rise to battle, bolstered by their devotion to the gods. Theros is a very dangerous land outside of the walled cities Meletis, Akris and Setessa. Nyx is the night sky, and home of the gods, it moves around each night. The five Gods are: Heliod, Erebos, Nylea, Thassa, and Purphoros. The gods can take multiple forms and walk among mortals. The planeswalker Elspeth Tirel will fight a Hydra and attracts the attention of Heliod. Elspeth doesn't want to be a hero and does not believe she will be called on to be a leader in a world of gods. Minotaurs are the rampaging savages of Theros.
