ALL GAME EVENTS CANCELLED
Posted: 031920

We've Cancelled all Current and Upcoming In-Store Game Events Due to Covid-19
Alternate Reality has been the south sides stop for gaming for over a quarter century. For over the last decade we have been the Mt.Greenwood place to play Friday Night Magic (FNM), Saturday Showdown and of course Pre-Release tournaments for new Magic the Gathering (MTG) sets. We pride ourselves on being a safe, sane place for gamers of all stripes and levels to come together to play, check out new products and most importantly, socialize with fellow gamers.

Unfortunately, we are now living in the world of Covid-19 and bringing together large group of people to socialize for hours on end in relatively close quarters has become problematical at best and potentially deadly at worst.  You are all family to us and we want our family to remain safe and healthy. In order to insure this, Alternate Reality (in conjunction with our game masters Keith and Brad) have made the decision to cancel all scheduled in-store game events for the month of March and early April. This does not mean the end of gaming at the store, at some point this virus will be beaten and life will return to normal. Unfortunately, for now it does mean the suspension of our in-store gaming.

Alternate Reality remains open to shop, and the placing of pre orders for product; and all product ordering prices and deadlines remain intact. New product is still coming in every week and the upcoming product release of
Ikoria Lair of Bhemoths is still available for pre orders. Because of the Covet-19 disruption, we are canceling the $25.00 "day of" entry fee and making the "early bird"  $19.99 entrance an ANYTIME registration for this event. If for some reason the pre-release of  Ikoria Lair of Bhemoths is cancelled by Wizards of the Coast (WOC), we will of course refund any pre paid entry fee's that have been made.

As gamers we are all familiar with strategy and tactics against an opponent.
For Covid-19 these are your best strategies...

-Social Distancing, maintain a six foot maximum distance between yourself and others. Wave, give the "Vulcan Greeting" or elbow bump others as a greeting.

-Wash, dry, repeat. Wash your hands often. Any surface, any money, any product, keyboard or mouse you handle with you bare hands potentially has the Corvid-19 virus on it. Hand sanitizer is good but a bar of soap and hot water is better. An try to refrain from touching your face. Eyes, mouth ears and nose are all potential entry ways for the virus to get into your body.

-If you are sick, stay home. Please do not exit your front door if you are sick or feeling any symptoms, not just for your own sake but for the safety and protection of everyone.

Stay healthy, stay safe, this too shall pass and of course...we can all beat this together!
