A Wickedly Good New Rewards System

Scry into worlds beyond for a vision of a new and improved Haunted Game Cafe Rewards system that’s better than ever.

HGC_RewardsCard_Ouija_FINALOUT

The Haunted Game Cafe Spirit Card is a simple stamp card that customers can use to track any purchase that earns rewards points. Simply give your card to one of our Ravenous Zombies Helpful Staff during checkout. For every $10 in cash or credit card you spend before tax, you’ll earn one stamp on the Spirit Card. When the card is filled, it can be used as a $5 discount on a future purchase.

Here’s a few of the improvements we’ve made:

  • Easy to see when you’ve earned a $5 Reward Coupon. No more will your rewards points be hidden in the dark corners of a computer.
  • Instant Rewards. Cards can be used for a discount the instant they’re filled. You can even save up completed cards for a combined reward.
  • Look for upcoming special offers that will earn you extra stamps. By checking in with your favorite social media site or by telling your friends about us, you can earn extra stamps towards great rewards.

Have an account in our old system? No problem. All store credit on your account remains as before. Plus, any credit that you earned before the changeover can be added to your balance. Just ask at the shop next time you’re in.

Living Card Games

Living Card Games are a constantly expanding and growing experience without the random buy of a collectible card game. We stock all the current lines like:  Android: Netrunner, Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars The Card Game and Call of Cthulhu. Most packs are $14.95 and you can preorder any upcoming expansions. These links are the starter sets:

Our staff would be happy to tell you more about each set, where it takes place, and more. Here is the main webpage for all the Living Card Games. Here are the descriptions from the Publisher, Fantasy Flight.

LOTR_LCG

The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game is a cooperative card game that puts 1-2 players (or up to four with two Core Sets!) in control of the most powerful characters and artifacts of Middle-earth. The Core Set includes 226 cards that can be used to assemble a wide variety of decks right out of the box. Included are three perilous quests that, along with countless combinations of settings and enemies, offer near-limitless replayability.

In expansions, Dwarrowdelf explores the perils within the Misty Mountains, Against the Shadow tells a grand story of intrigue, tension, and heroics within the realm of Gondor, and Khazad-dûm introduces two Dwarf heroes while facing new scenarios filled with perilous locations and a menacing host of enemies.

Game of Thrones Living Card Game

The A Dire Message Chapter Pack continues the cycle’s major themes, introducing additional Prized cards and giving even more support to the possibility of multi-House decks. Every Great House in Westeros gains mighty cards, including new versions of Robert Baratheon, Ser Balon Swann, and a neutral version of the Iron Throne.

Star Wars: The Card Game, a Living Card Game

Star Wars™: The Card Game is a two-player card game that allows you to control the most powerful and iconic characters, vehicles, starfighters, and droids from the Star Wars universe. Introducing an innovative new model for deck-building, the Core Set includes everything two players need to assemble a wide variety of decks and start battling for the fate of the galaxy!

Edge of Darkness is the first deluxe expansion for Star Wars™: The Card Game. Its twenty-two unique objective sets add 132 total cards that allow players to battle for the fate of the galaxy as either of two new affiliations, the dark side’s Scum and Villainy or the light side’s Smugglers and Spies.

The Hoth Cycle transports players to the desolate ice planet, Hoth. Inspired by the early scenes from The Empire Strikes Back, each Force Pack from The Hoth Cycle expands the Star Wars universe and increases players’ deck-building options with 60 cards.

Call of Cthulhu Living Card Game

The Call of Cthulhu Core Set includes 155 cards split between each of the seven factions. It also includes 6 plastic Cthulhu domain markers, 24 Cthulhu story markers, and a game board. It is the best way to start playing Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game.

Secrets of Arkham Expansion
Do you dare revisit the forsaken landscape and occult Secrets of Arkham? Secrets of Arkham is a revised deluxe expansion for Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game that unleashes terrifying cosmic horrors upon the game with its ten-card story deck and 150 player cards (three copies each of fifty different cards).

From the horrors of Dunwich to the shadow over Innsmouth, Secrets of Arkham explores the terrors of H.P. Lovecraft’s fictional New England, focusing on such classic elements of his mythos as Professor Armitage, the Necronomicon, and Azathoth, the gibbering Ancient One whose name no one dares speak aloud. The deluxe expansion also develops such extraordinary threats as the Mi-Go and the Deep Ones. What new strategies and deck ideas will you discover as you delve into the updated Secrets of Arkham?

Android: Netrunner

What makes Android: Netrunner cool is that Rrnners are involved in  a high-tech heist to steal agendas from evil Corporations – will they get caught? or will they get out with the goods? Corporations must advance their agendas while protecting them with high-tech defenses. The game is unique in its use of asymmetrical card pools: one for the Runner, and one for the Corporation.

Monolithic megacorps and individualistic netrunners collide in a dystopian future. Set in a gritty, cyberpunk future, Android: Netrunner is a two-player game that rewards skill, strategy, and just the right amount of calculated risk.

This asymmetrical card game resurrects the mechanics of the original Netrunner, designed by Richard Garfield, and updates them to increase clarity and promote a more dynamic play environment.
