Gamers to use ‘Magic’ to aid one of their own

April 1, 2014 by  

In less than two weeks, the Gamer’s Armory in Cary will be hosting an event to raise money to help a local game player.

Founded in 2002, the The Gamer’s Armory is an online store, but a physical location opened in Cary in 2010 and is found at Cary Towne Boulevard. The Armory caters to a large local community of gamers, and the community is rising to the challenge of helping one of their own who fell during an ice storm this January sustaining serious injuries. Proceeds from The Gathering will be used to help pay the player’s medical bills.

The day will feature tournaments for the card game ‘Magic: The Gathering’, raffles of rare Magic items, food, and baked goods, as well as a Chick-Fil-A’s Spin Wheel with various prizes.

‘Magic’ was created in 1993 by Hasbro, Inc. subsidiary Wizards of the Coast. The game uses more than 13,000 unique cards to determine the outcome of a battle with 2 or more wizards (players). The cards represent artifacts, creatures, and spells the players can use during battles. The game is estimated to have 12 million players.

The event starts at 9:00 am and continues until midnight on April 12. This type of event is a perfect example of when flyer printing can be particularly beneficial. Interested parties who might not be “in the loop” can still find out about an event.
