Dark Matters! By Miss Geek YEG

Dark Matters is one of the biggest Nerdy Events in Edmonton and it was shame to have missed it this time. Thankfully we have friends who did make it and can share stories about what it was like. Specifically we have friends like Miss...

Update! New Category! More!

Patreon

We rocketed past 500 likes for the Facebook page earlier this week and I'm finally starting to believe there's some real interest in what we're doing (and we've been around less than two months!). As a result, I can say we're going to really...

Dungeons & Dragons Week!

Roll a natural 20 and get this going. http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/have-don-iveson-appear-in-yeg-dnd-improv-edition.html Can't say if it's the launch of Avalon Knights new DM on-demand service or their RPG...

Smash Bros.!

Due to not having listed the ESC Smashed Up event coming up at Avalon Knights this weekend when I did my December Events post; I figured I'd do a quick write up of some of the local Smash Bros. options. First up is the Edmonton...

Misc. Stores

Video Games & Services

This has been the hardest list to put together yet. I want to include everything but you can buy new video games almost anywhere these days... I'll run down the chain stores in town that sell them anyway. I'm leaving out the Pawn Shops in...
