Protecting Role Playing Games

Role playing games are super popular now, but games such as Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) have been around since the ’70s. Games similar to D&D such as Pathfinder and Starfinder have huge communities as well. These games involve players acting as characters in some imagination-fueled realm, created or described by the game master (GM). In D&D, the game master is known as the Dungeon Master (DM).

These games also use books, maps, figures, and other items to build the fantasy setting and control the game. If you want to organize these collectibles and keep them in new condition, BCW offers several products to help.

 

Player Folios are perfect for organizing character sheets, cards, and related pages. These folios include eight 1-pocket pages for holding character sheets, plus four 9-pocket pages for holding cards.

If you prefer to organize your adventures in a 3-ring binder with more pages, BCW offers numerous binders and pages with various pocket configurations.

 

Magazine Stor-Folios hold your core gaming books or expansion books, character sheets, documents, and even folded maps.

 

Magazine Boxes will hold a larger collection of books and magazines.

 

Books and magazines can also be protected in BCW Magazine and Book Bags.

Team BCW Weekend Recap after SCG MINN

Ahead of the Star City Games Open in Minneapolis, Team BCW held a BCW Challenge at Lodestone Coffee and Games in Minnetonka on Friday, May 25th. The site was packed with 74 people playing in their Friday Night Magic event. Thank you to the 23 players that challenged Jim Davis and Todd Stevens to games of Modern, Legacy or Standard. We also would like to give a big thanks to Nick Miller who joined us at Lodestone and sat in with the team to take on challengers.

Jim Davis and Nick Miller at Lodestone Gaming

On Saturday, three Team BCW members attended SCG Minneapolis. Todd Stevens played G/W Value Town, Jim Davis played Jeskai Control, and Brennan DeCandio played Grixis Death’s Shadow. Jim finished Saturday with a record of 8-1, and Todd had a 7-2 record. Brennan just missed Day Two with a 6-3 record.

Todd Stevens at SCG Minneapolis

Both Jim and Todd had a solid Day Two. Todd finished the Open in 12th place and Jim made the Top 8. Jim lost in the quarterfinals in a rough match against E Tron. All in all it was a great weekend.

Jim Davis at SCG Minneapolis

Up next for Team BCW is the SCG Con in Virginia. All five Team BCW members will be in attendance taking their shot at the Invitational.

Team BCW’s Louisville Weekend Recap

Team BCW with special guests Caleb Scherer and Paul Muller at Through the Decades

Team BCW members visited Louisville May 18th through 20th for another BCW Challenge and the Star City Games Louisville Open. Friday night’s BCW Challenge was held at Through The Decades Gaming. The team had 53 challengers… a new record for a BCW Challenge. Players competed with Team BCW members Todd Stevens, Ross Merriam, and Tannon Grace, along with special guests Caleb Scherer and Paul Muller. 16 of the 53 challengers defeated one of the pro players. Thanks to Through The Decades and the local TTD players for making this a super BCW Challenge!

Team BCW had a great start to the SCG Louisville Open on Saturday. Todd, Ross, and Tannon were all able to finish with a record that pushed them into Day Two. Todd played G/W Value Town and finished the day with a record of 8-1. Ross, playing Blue Moon, and Tannon, playing Humans, both finished Saturday with a 7-2 record.

On Sunday, the team fought hard, but in the end they fell short of making the Top 8. Todd finished in 10th place, just missing the Top 8. Ross finished in 16th place and Tannon finished in 25thplace. Overall it was a great showing for Team BCW with all three team members making Day Two and all three finished in the Top 32.
