Looking for Volunteers

We are very few, the employees, at store A Galaxy Called Dallas. We stay busy stocking, cleaning, taking care of customers, making sure the bills get paid, that we get paid and such. 

One of the things that we’ve always wanted to have happen at the shop is a fun game night. Saturdays are hit and miss and we’d love to make it a hit on a more consistent basis and even concentrate on individual games. We’ve got a small group of Yu-Gi-Oh! players and would like to see a Magic group, a Dice Masters night, Role-playing night, Hero Clix, Munchkin, and maybe a Star Realms. Unfortunately, we don’t have the manpower to step out from behind the register and run these games.


This is where we reach out to you, the gamers. We are looking for game masters, dungeon masters, referees, and others to run the games! We are familiar with the rules, but can’t leave the paying customer at the register. If you are interested in helping put together a game night, we can provide you with the tools that are required to do it. Just email or call us to find out how!

James’ Pick: Ei8ht #1 by Dark Horse

American Vampire’s Rafael Albuquerque brings a tale of his own that catches you at the start and won’t let go! Pilot Joshua wakes up with amnesia and slowly reconstructs what happened as he figures out what is going on.

Co-writing with Mike Johnson (Supergirl), Albuquerque tells the tale of Joshua who has made a deal to find someone. We only find this out as he regains this info from his amnesia. Waking from a crash in the middle of an unknown landscape. He learns a little at a time and we are right there with him. We learn that he has traveled in time (across dimensions, maybe) and has a communicator with a voice that he doesn’t recognize. Told to follow a dinosaur, yes, you heard right, he comes to learn more about his predicament.

With Albuquerque’s art style which I’ve come to love in American Vampire, the color that added to his lines really make this a cool looking read. The story is gripping and I’m ready for the next installment. Dark Horse has added another great title to their stable and this is the reason I don’t read a lot of titles from the two big dogs anymore.


What’s you’re favorite pick of recent publishing? Tell me all about it!

Yu-Gi-Oh! Crossed Souls Advanced Edition

Short notice, but if you are interested in orders for Yu-Gi-Oh! Crossed Souls Advanced Edition, then let us know by 4pm Friday, February 20, 2015.

Yugioh Crossed Souls AdvancedKonami Digital Entertainment is proud to bring you the next core booster release, Crossed Souls.   This new booster unlocks new Deck-building opportunities like never before for the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME.  This 100-card first Edition set introduces the Zefra monsters, a new monster omni-theme that crosses over five different Deck types!

Each Zefra monster is tied in to a popular monster group from recent sets, making them either Zefra/Shaddoll, Zefra/’tellarknight, Zefra/Yang Zing, Zefra/Nekroz, or Zefra/Ritual Beast. Duelists with any of these Decks can add their new Zefra monsters to spice the Deck up, OR build a Deck entirely of Zefra monsters, tying all five together!

While their cross-theme potential and monster effects vary, all Zefra monsters can take advantage of the new, powerful Zefra Spell & Trap Cards in Crossed Souls, magnifying the power boost that Zefra monsters give to any Deck that includes them.  At the same time, a pure Zefra Deck (or a Deck with appropriate Zefra splash) can now gain increased access to Shaddoll, ‘tellarknight, Yang Zing, Nekroz, and Ritual Beast cards!

Zefra monsters open up unprecedented crossover Deck-building avenues, but Crossed Souls also arms Duelists with new non-Zefra cards for their Burning Abyss, Madolche, Infernoid, U.A., Yosenju, and other Decks.

Fans of the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime and TV series will also be treated to a slew of new cards from the newest generation of the series – Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V.

The Crossed Souls booster set includes 100 cards: 48 Common Cards, 20 Rare Cards, 14 Super Rare Cards, 10 Ultra Rare Cards, and 8 Secret Rare Cards

Release: 5/15/2015
