Happy Mother's Day! Wendy tells me it is the best job in the world, and I guess that puts SVG as the...second best job? 😀 We hope you stop in on Mother's Day; moms will get a little something special from us today. Also, don't forget to check out our May board game giveaway and as usual we had a nice influx of restocks and new games. There's other news to share too, so why not check it all 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 discuss 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. All in all it's not too difficult to navigate, so let's get to it!
BOARD GAME GIVEAWAY
We're into our second and final week for the May board game signup timeline. That's right, time is quickly running out!
We've got a good one for you this month too. We're giving away the Kickstarter version of Ignite, valued at over $120! Ignite is a combination of tactical combat, deck building, and miniatures game. Between the variably built board, unique race abilities, and the multitude of available cards, every game of Ignite is vastly different!
CLICK HERE to go to the sign in page and find out more about it! There's even a review video to check out. Not much time, the winner will be drawn on 14 May 2022. Please share with your gaming groups and friends - and good luck!
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
Wendy, my partner in business and in life, is an amazing mother. Grandmother too. In celebration of all of those amazing mom's doing the remarkable things they do every day, we'll be giving away a few small tokens of appreciation.
For all the mom's that pop into the shop this Sunday on Mother's Day we'll be giving away a 3" circular 'cute big eyes dragon' magnet (or any other 'bling' of the mom's choice) and an instant $5.00 coupon good at checkout on orders of $30 or more. This is an in-store only offer.
It's just a tiny token, but we wanted to say thanks!
We continue to build the lore behind 'Stone Valley Games'. In the continuing fantasy story, the obelisk of power is at the center of an enormous Pangea. Surrounding the Pangea like imperfect slices of pie are several sections of land broken up by natural terrain. While everyone on the planet originated at the site of the obelisk, over 6,000 years have seen them cover the Pangea and become completely different people based on the terrain they originally settled.
In one such section of Pangea the people are quite reminiscent of our own Earth's age of chivalry, with significant fantasy differences of course.
It is here where our weary King has finally claimed the throne, with significant personal loss along the way. With the mysterious Obelisk of Power in the background, and a hint at the world map behind a drooping cloth, this black & white panorama is a sneak peek of the final product. Once colored, this art will adorn the Stone Valley Games account area. That way each SVG account holder can hang out in the castle while they are checking their Stones total. We have other ideas for it too, but those will be revealed later.
Again, this is just the next in a long line of art we have planned to spice up the webstore and physical store along with our own merchandise line. We'll show you the colored version once ready, and the account holders will see it soon. Fantastic!
