Jacob has Cystic Fibrosis, which sucks eggs, and he is raising money to fight the disease right over here.

and I’ll match it in Brave New Bucks. FOR REAL.
His team is going to auction off that basket, and all the proceeds are going to go to helping find a cure. We are honored to have been asked to be on the team!! Oh, and if you’re already cutting onions at your desk like I am, feel free to check out this video Jacob’s sister made.
It’s okay, I GUESS. *sniff*

Looks like another great week,
See something you want?
Email me, baby!
Say, wanna hear about all of our super duper keen events first hand? Maybe even have a chance to plan ahead to attend, figure out who else is likely to be here, or just check out the goings on?
Hey! Something you want to play, some event you would love to attend, anything at all you’d like to see us offer? Well, we don’t read minds! TELL US!
FRIDAYS @ 6pm
*FNM @ BNW is a 16 and older event. Thanks!
FatPacks, Intro Decks, and Boosters all in stock, RIGHT NOW!
Free Comic Book Day, YOU,
& Heroclix, Too!
When you come out to the BNW FCBD festivities,
We’ll be displaying our own proclivities.
Plastic Heroes and Villains on maps do fight!
And boys and girls (of all ages!) have fun all right!
Can we pretend that all of this rhymed?
The point is that we’re demo-ing Heroclix outside!
Heroclix has been going for over 12 Years!
Longer than the original line-up of Tears for Fears!
AND we’ll also be holding a raffle, that’s the truth!
Purchase some clix product and show us the proof!
So come get free comics and learn a new game.
Once you try it your free time will never be the same!
Summing up (sans attempts at further rhyming):
Come try out this game that stars your favorite comic & videogame & movie characters.
Buy some stuff from the venerable shop and have a chance to win some crazy fun prizes!
Then come back and join the regular game,
every Saturday @ 2pm!
In related news, and knowing full well that I may get in big trouble for this….please consider contributing to this extremely well intentioned and worthwhile GoFundMe account.
It’s for our dear friend Paul…some of you know him as Roxy from our weekly HeroClix tournaments…who has been dealt one of the worst hands I’ve ever known in recent months.
I’ll make you a deal:
You contribute, prove it to me, and I will match whatever you send him in Brave New Bucks.
Deal? DEAL. Thanks for considering it, you guys. Few people have bigger, kinder, or more generous hearts than the Citizens of the Brave New World.
See? You know him. He’s the silly one who tends to win!
And we absolutely adore him.
Until next time, I’m still…
~Portlyn @ BNW
