Oh Schrute!

December 10th, 2018

During a game of PITTSBURGH 68, a player commented that the Jack of Zombies looks a bit like Dwight Schrute from The Office – that added a bit of fun to that game for sure!

PIC-SH-News-600-FTV-Schrutes

When the cards above appeared on the movie screen during a recent game, I commented, “What’s better than one Schrute…” These twins reminded me of an original playtest rule that allowed the Director to gain bonus attacks for a throng built with matching cards. A throng with a pair of Schrutes got you two attacks for that throng. Three of a kind got you three attacks from that throng.

A long forgotten rule from the vaults!

GameWick’s Fright Night at The Colonial: The Fog

November 12th, 2018

Come join us for some thrills and chills as GameWick Games sponsors our first Fright Night movie at the Colonial Theatre in Phoenixville, PA. The movie is John Carpenter’s The Fog, and this is the digitally restored version of that 1980 creeper. We love it even more because it has a little of its own Innsmouth “accursed seaside town” vibe going on. And… there’s even rumor that the Midnite Shuffler will be making an appearance!

If you are thinking about joining us, please send us an email. We have a limited number of complimentary tickets set aside for our friends and fans!

GameWick’s Fright Night at The Colonial Theatre
November 16 at 9:45 PM
Phoenixville, PA.
Full Info Here

PIC-TheFogMovie

What makes this night even more special is that the Colonial is the “Healthfully Air Conditioned” theatre that was featured in the 1958 horror classic, The Blob! This is the theatre that the blob oozes into from the projection booth, causing that classic “theatre run out” scene that no one can forget!
