Stay up to date on all that's happening at Battleground!

Probably the biggest and most exciting news we have to offer with this newsletter is our recent decision to rebrand the store with a new name. Along with that change will come a new logo that we just love and can't wait to implement immediately. One month from today we will be officially changing our name to Blibdoolpoolp's Bargain Bazaar. We feel as though this change is long overdue and will help give us the opportunity to brand our store in a very unique way. As you may or may not know, Blibdoolpoolp is the the deity of the Kuo-toa, a race of evil fish-men in the Dungeons & Dragons multiverse. If you want to check out a sneak peek at the new logo click this link.

This weekend's big event is, of course, the Shadows Over Innistrad Prerelease. The action begins tonight at midnight at both Battleground locations. Each store will be hosting five events over Saturday and Sunday. See below for specific details.

There are also some great new releases this week, including the impressive Star Wars: Rebellion board game. We saw this game being played at the recent GAMA Trade Show and I can tell you that it's definitely worth checking out!
