USMC-EmblemThe Little Shop of Magic is happy to renew its partnership with the United States Marine Corps in the annual Toys for Tots toy drive.

We will donate a new toy to the Toys for Tots Foundation for each $100 transaction (or more) that our customers complete between 12/12 and 12/20, 2013.

Don’t have $100 to spend on your toys this year but you still want to help?

Not a problem: we understand how tight things can be around the holidays, especially under current economic conditions. Between those same dates, we will also accept donations of new, unwrapped toys at our brick-and-mortar location:

As in the original game, players in Dungeon Twister: The Card Game build a team from the characters and objects available to them, then head into the maze to try to navigate the hazards by using their action points each turn to move, rotate rooms, collect items, and combat opponents, making their way to the opposite side of the maze while avoiding – or taking out – the opponent's characters along the way.

SpyriumSpyrium: Based in an imaginary world where England has been transformed into a Steampunk atmosphere. Your goal? Build factories, using workers who produce a substance known as Spyrium. Producing Spyrium in one factory, then processing it in the next results in victory Points.

Deep Wars

Deep Wars: Campaign based skirmish game. Mordheim style. Vertical and horizontal movement because its all underwater. Game designer is or had a marine biologist on staff when he wrote it so the environment has true aspects. Terrain is interactive in that some of it will attack you and grab you or hinder you. The models are fantastic. The best part? There is an easy way to create and build your own models or faction! Someone has apparently sat down and made a Merfolk army with all the reaper Merfolk!

Timeline

Timeline - Historical Events: JFK’s assassination, the 1st step on the moon, the last crusade ... Can you put all these events correctly on the timeline? The first player to get rid of their cards wins.

Impact City

Catan: Explorers & Pirates

Catan - Explorers & Pirates: The newest addition to the Catan game. You can play with the basic set, you do not need to have the seafarers portion of the franchise. The play concepts of seafarers are introduced as part of the core rules and it comes with five scenarios. In closing I think its a good buy if you are not sure you want to get the seafarers expansion, since it introduces the concepts.

Cosmic Encounters: Cosmic Storm

Cosmic Encounters - Cosmic Storm: The newest expansion for cosmic encounters, cosmic storm. It introduces 25 new alien races and space stations which give you a unique power as long as you control it. New and interesting races as well as Space Stations, how can you say no?
