Time is running out on our TWO giveaways going on right now! One is truly a grail game; you should really check it out. I can say that it's been an odd Winter season for us in northern Alabama, but the rainy weather isn't dampening our festive spirit! Bring on the holiday cheer! Why not pop in, grab an eggnog and check everything out?
Welcome to our weekly newsletter! For our new readers I'm Eric, and Wendy and I run Stone Valley Games. This newsletter is our way to share both local and world-wide gaming news of interest that popped up last week. It also provides our subscribers, both local and remote, some information on the going's on around here so everyone feels like part of the action. At the bottom of this newsletter we show you the restocks, new items, and preorders added to the store last week. It's not too difficult to navigate, so let's get to it!
DECEMBER BOARD GAME GIVEAWAY (PART 1 of 2)
This is your last week to sign up for this one as we're drawing the winner's name soon! That's right, we're giving one lucky winner a copy of Aeon's Trespass: Odyssey (the Core Kickstarter edition).
In a nutshell, it’s an epic 1-4 player massive campaign game of adventures, exploration, base building and fierce tactical battles with giant monsters. It’s a fully co-operative, choice-driven boardgame played over multiple sessions, with over 200 hours worth of unique game content (1500+ cards!), a novel’s worth of narrative and a slew of awesome miniatures (some almost 6 inches tall!). It's over 30 pounds of glorious fun!
It truly is a unique experience, merging ideas inspired by video games like XCOM, Dark Souls, Monster Hunter and the jrpg genre with modern tabletop boardgames, like KDM or 7th Continent.
For your chance to win, simply go here to find out more information and enter. There's no cost, this is our way to give back to the community that supports us. We'll be drawing the winner on 17 December, so depending on how far away the winner lives from us there's a slight chance it could make it by Christmas!
DECEMBER BOARD GAME GIVEAWAY (PART 2 of 2)
From Meeple, Myself & I and Stone Valley Games, welcome to the Oniverse Giveaway! All six games in the Oniverse will be given away to one lucky winner, who will be drawn on December 26th, the same day the Top 100 Reviewed Games reaches its ultimate conclusion! Make sure you also tune in to hear what games made Jason's Top 5!
We've been working with Meeple, Myself and I for a long time now, and we appreciate Jason's approach in both his written and podcast reviews.

BORED ONLINE? BOARD OFFLINE BOARD GAME VIDEOS
Baker and the gang over at Bored Online? Board Offline! are continuing to produce wonderful gaming videos. The videos released in November include unboxing, tutorial, and top 3 lists. I've gone ahead and laid them out below.
I've been toying with different ways to present this list to make it more useful. Last month I used links, but I think this is better. It allows you to get to an interesting video right away. So, take a few for a spin, especially if something tickles your fancy! You'll continue to see these monthly rollups for the foreseeable future.
TIME IS ALMOST UP
As we're going to open the storefront on the 19th, and our Year End Sale is the week after that, I'm finding myself woefully behind in getting things ready. You know how it is, one minute you have a few weeks...and then all of the sudden it's upon you.
So, this upcoming week will be quite hectic as we get the shop back in shape and hone down our sales list. We also have several adjustments coming in 2023 and we'll need to get working on those too. Not to mention all the year-end paperwork (sigh). So, no rest for the weary (or for those recovering from hip replacement surgery either) the time has quickly passed us by and now we'll need to knuckle down and get 'er done. Which we will.
THE WRAP UP
Okay, enough news for this week! Below are the Restocks, New Items, and Preorders added to the shop last week. You can click on the item to learn more, and many of the products have review and gameplay videos so you can see the game in action. If you're visiting our page and you'd like to keep up with our giveaways, sales, new products, and articles like this one just create an account here. Once created you will be subscribed to our newsletter and become enrolled in our loyalty system, instantly earning 50 Stones that you can use on your very first order. A Stone? One Stone is equivalent to One Cent. That doesn't sound like much, but you earn 2 Stones for every dollar spent and 5 for each product review, so though it may seem small, those savings add up fast! Redeem your Stones upon checkout, and they can save you up to 10% off your cart total. Loyalty Matters!
