Dear Sac City Rollers: Thanks For A Great 2013



We Heart Roller Derby

This year has been an amazing year. One of the things we loved the most about it was the Sac City Rollers. They even made an appearance at our 2013 Free Comic Book Day Mini-Con and on EmpiresCV.tv, our YouTube channel.

We're really looking forward to another great year with them in 2014 and hope that many of you will be able to join us on a game night. We guarantee you'll have a good time.

Members Appreciation Party and Games

Friday night about 30 members of our savings club program and their guests joined us for pizza, drinks, board games, comic book reading, and video games.

If you're thinking about saving money on your comics, join the club before December 31 in order to get maximum benefits in 2014.

Board games, card games and video games

In the game department, Injustice was a hit, but so were Princess Bride: Storming the Castle, King of Tokyo, and Love Letters.

We has so much fun and made so much noise playing games that we're checking our calendar to see what day each week would be good for a regular game night.


Celebrating 10 years in comics


A special gift, "The Pug People And Their Prized Pug," an original painting by Jared Konopitski, was presented to Ben Schwartz in celebration of the store's 10-year anniversary.
