Announcing Players Points Achievements!
October 10, 2014 (PW Updates)
We’re proud to announce the release of the other half of our Player Points program: achievements!
Interact with us by taking part in events and tournaments to complete achievements and earn experience points (XP)! Earn enough XP and you’ll level up and earn yourself a Perk, which can be anything from a simple can of pop, to discounts on our products, or even free entry in tournaments we host! So you’re wondering, how does it work? To get started, all you need is to create an account with your email in store. Once that’s done or if you’re already in our Player Points program, read below!
The first thing you’ll see when you go to our members page is the leaderboard. Here, the 10 highest leveled players will appear. The top three positions get special treatment as you can see!
To access your own achievements though, you’ll want to type the email address you gave us to sign up for the Player Points program then hit the search button. You’ll then see…
…the whole list of achievements you can earn! Achievements that you’ve completed at least once will appear in red. The counter at the bottom right of an achievement tells you how many times you’ve completed an achievement. That’s right, you can complete achievements multiple times to keep earning XP!
Once you level, let one of our staff know and you’ll get to pick out a perk. You’ll randomly select a number of perks equal to your level and then pick one to keep. Keep leveling up and you’ll have a better chance at getting those rare perks!
That’s it! Make sure you come on in and sign up if you haven’t already. Happy achievement hunting!
Players Wanted for Grand Opening
July 19, 2014 (PW Updates)
The sheer mention of Role Playing Games once painted a vivid image of neck-bearded troglodytes tossing dice in their mom’s basement, through cheeto-smeared fingers and a heavy cloud of body odor; luckily the geek stereotype that pervaded the pop culture of the 80s and 90s is seemingly a thing of the past. No longer are the Anthony Michael Hall’s of John Hughes lore, the way that we define “nerdiness”, and we at Players Wanted are here to nurture a new generation of gamers!
While some have developed an elitist attitude towards the growing popularity of tabletop games, trying to weed out those that they claim are not “real nerds”, we couldn’t help but disagree with this mentality. Sure, no one wants to be culturally appropriated, and nerds are no exception, but there are just some things you can’t fake… The time and dedication that we put into our games, our skills, our decks, and our characters, just can’t be co-opted or reproduced inauthentically. Whether you call yourself a nerd, a geek, a gamer, a guy, a girl, a robot, edward, old, young, rich, poor, lonely, popular, outgoing, shy or tired of reading this damn list… come by and play a game with us; We’d love to meet you! Anyone who has time for a game, is alright in our books.
We’re thrilled to be hosting our Grand Opening this Saturday, July 19th, and hope to see both familiar and unknown faces walk through our door. We have a ton of great programs, events and tournaments in the works and can’t wait to get things started.
Thank-you to everyone who has supported us since Players Wanted was a nameless dream, and to all the supporters we haven’t met yet.
It means a lot.
