Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition

Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition

by Rebecca Ali Leave a comment

The nights are long, but never long enough. You are Kindred, cursed to hide from the sun and drink the blood of mortals forever... or until you meet your Final Death at the hands of circumstance, the Second Inquisition, or the fiendish nightly machinations of your kind. Vampire: The Masquerade is a storytelling game of personal and political horror. Take on the role of a vampire, blessed with supernatural strength and cursed with damnation, struggling to maintain your humanity in an endless night. Get caught up in the schemes of the Camarilla, an organization dedicated to maintaining order among the undead, or cast off the chains of the ivory tower and live free as an Anarch. There are things to be gained, and lost, in any choice. We are all stocked up on Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition books!

I'm very sad to have to make yet another post about COVID-19. We've been monitoring local case numbers and we're very worried about the increase in number of cases in St. Mary's county. Given the current situation, we will be doing the following: Innistrad: Midnight Hunt PreRelease scheduled 9/17-9/19 will still take place with reduced capacity and the option to play on outside tables. We'll also be offering "PreRelease at Home" to anyone who doesn't feel comfortable coming in to the store to play. Here's the link to all of those options: Innistrad: Midnight Hunt PreRelease Options The Pop Up Gen Con scheduled for 9/18 at 5PM will still take place with reduced capacity and the option to play on outside tables. Badges can be purchased on the Pop Up Gen Con website or in person. Everyone is encouraged to mask as often as possible while inside the store. We ask that unvaccinated players please use the outside or at home options. We have no way to verify vaccination status, but we sincerely hope everyone complies for their own safety and the health of all of our loved ones who can't yet get a vaccine. More announcements will be made about events further out than these as soon. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Please stay safe everyone! ~Rebecca

What's the most bizarre thing you've ever snagged while fishing? I hope it was less frightening than what the unsuspecting fisherman on this card caught! This is an exclusive Innistrad: Midnight Hunt preview card given to us directly from Wizards of the Coast to share with our community before anyone else gets to see it!

Warhammer 40K Crusade Escalation League

Warhammer 40K Crusade Escalation League

by Rebecca Ali League, Warhammer 40K Leave a comment

Back in 2017 right after 8th Edition was released, I played my first game of Warhammer 40K as part of an Escalation League. I ended up building and painting an entire Ultramarines army in that league. I consider that league the official starting point of my love for minis painting and minis gaming so escalation leagues hold a special place in my heart. It feels like a lifetime ago, but we weren't able to complete our last escalation league that was going strong in March of 2020. There has been a whole new set of rules released since then so we're starting all over! Tomorrow (September 4th, 2021) is the official start date for the next league and it's a Crusade Escalation League using the "Amidst the Ashes" mission pack. I'll be completely honest, I don't know a lot about the 9th Edition rules or the crusade system, but I do know our community and I know they will help me figure things out as I go the same way they helped me learn how to play back in 2017. So come put some models on the table! The details are all here: https://hightidegames.com/collections/events/products/warhammer-40k-crusade-escalation-league-ticket ~Rebecca @ High Tide Games

Solomons Dragon Boat Festival

Greetings gamers! I'm excited to announce that High Tide Games will be participating in an fun-filled community event next month. The Solomons Dragon Boat Festival features a race of epic proportions on actual dragon shaped boats! 16 rowers paddle in time with a drummer at the helm! Team High Tide will be showcasing their skills as they compete against other local businesses. The event is a fundraiser benefitting adults with developmental disabilities in our local community so if rowing like a Viking isn't in your repertoire you can still help! Here's a link to our team's donations page: https://somdcr.org/donations/hightide/ We already have some rowers lined up, but we're looking for more! Let us know if you'd like to be on the boat! Check out this video of the 2019 final race! https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=370336023657110
