Events & Social

Eclectic Games will be running short-staffed for the next two weeks as several of our staff are isolating having tested positive for Covid. We will be opening the shop to the public at 11 am on weekdays, rather than the regular 10am so that we will be able to run all of our evening events. We thank you for your patience while we operate a more limited service, and look forward to welcoming you back as soon as possible.

Magic: The Gathering

Magic: The Gathering was first released in 1993 and remains one of the most popular and widely played CCGs (Collectable Card Games) on the market today. Taking the role of a Planeswalker trying to gain supremacy over others of your kind you draw power from your land, cast spells and summon creatures to battle on your behalf. We pride ourselves on taking care of our local community for this game, supporting multiple play formats in store with an active local community.

Pokemon TCG

Pokemon TCG has been around since 1996 and coming from what is probably one of the best known pan-platform franchises in modern times its enduring popularity in the card games market is hardly surprising. Pokemon supports three age categories in its tournaments: Junior (10 years old and younger), Senior (11 to 14 years old), and Master (15 years old and older), and given the long lifespan the game has endured we now see whole multiple generations of the same family playing this game.

Yu-Gi-Oh!

Available in english since 2002 Yu-Gi-Oh! Is another long standing game with a solid community and a world wide pool of players. Locally we have a very active community for this game and we run regular events supporting them. Each player starts with 8,000 "Life Points", with the main aim of the game to use monster attacks and spells to reduce the opponent's Life Points, players draw cards from their respective decks and take turns playing cards onto "the field". While Yu-Gi-Oh! has become one of the more complex card games on the market there are plenty of resources to learn and understand how it all works, including a strong and enthusiastic local player base.

Digimon Card Game

Digimon has been around for over 20 years but the current edition of the card game was released in 2020, giving new players an opportunity to really move into this game at the beginning of its journey. Evolve and power up your companion Digimon to attack your opponent and reduce their Security to 0 to win. We have a community starting to form around this game and will be looking to support in store play and tournaments to help it grow as a community in our region over the next few years.

Keyforge

Keyforge is a unique game in that it does not involved deck building elements but instead each deck is a sealed and unique deck, and not to be changed. Where Keyforge is different is in the types of game format available. Deck swapping and auctioning which of the available decks to use for a game are common mechanics, alternatively there is the reversal format where you bring the deck you think is most challenging to play with and hand it to your opponent to use. It is this diversity of formats that brings a lot of the fun and balance to the Keyforge play dynamic. To join our local Keyforge players group on Facebook click on the banner above.

Blood Bowl

Blood Bowl, the game of fantasy football. A high impact game of wits and brute force played out on pitches all over the old world by every race and faction imaginable. Blood Bowl is a turn based board game using miniatures, stat lines and dice to resolve blocks or hits between players. It has evolved over many versions to the modern edition now available and has been a mainstay of the smaller boxed games range for Games Workshop for over 20 years. Move the ball into your opponent's endzone by carrying it, passing it, evading your opponents players or simply crushing them underfoot. We support both league and tournament play in store on a regular basis. To join our local Blood Bowl players group on Facebook click on the banner above.

Warhammer Underworlds

Across the realms warbands venture into dangerous places in search of treasure, fame or for their own dark purposes. Warhammer Underworlds is a tactical board game played over hex based boards using a combination of board tactics and card use from custom decks of upgrade and objective cards unique to each warband and customisable with general cards. This is Games Workshop's best version so far of a truly balanced and competitive tournament system game not based on a wargame or skirmish game format. We have a strong local community who enjoy not only being highly successful when visiting larger national tournaments but supporting local players and learners to getinto the game.

Star Wars X-Wing

In X-Wing you assemble a squadron of iconic starfighters from across the Star Wars saga and engage in fast-paced space combat with iconic pilots from the Star Wars universe. Intuitive mechanics create the tense atmosphere of a firefight while beautifully pre-painted miniatures draw you deeper into the action. With factions from across the eras of the Star Wars universe there is no shortage of choice of what to play. We support both regular and tournament play in store as this game plays out over 3’x3’ play areas, about the limit of space for a single game in our environment.

Star Wars Legion

Warfare is an inescapable part of the Star Wars universe, from the blow dealt to the Rebel Alliance in the Battle of Hoth to a few Rebel strike teams taking on a legion of stormtroopers stationed on Endor. With innovative mechanics to simulate the fog of war and the chaos of battle, the unpainted, easily assembled miniatures give you a canvas to create the Star Wars army you’ve always wanted to lead into battle. With base sets and expansion packs for both the clone wars and imperial rebellion eras there are plenty of options to choose from when building your army. There is now a 3’x3’ small skirmish format published for Legion which we will be supporting in store alongside X-Wing.
