Dungeons and Dodgers to celebrate grand opening

Dungeons and Dodgers game shop will celebrate its grand opening this weekend with a marathon gaming opportunity.

The store at 1214 Central Ave. will be open from Friday noon nonstop to Sunday 6 p.m.

“Fifty-six hours straight of gaming,” store owner Ethan Becker said.

Saturday will feature people in costume as the Predator, and Darth Vader. Spider-man will also be in attendence.

Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. the Korriban squadron of the 501st Legion, an all-volunteer costumed group of Lucasfilm-approved Stormtroopers, will be on hand to take charge of the BB-8 droid bank filled with donations for Bikes for Tykes.

That donation will officially be dropped off at Fort Dodge Fort by a stormtrooper on Monday.

All weekend long there will be games of Dungeons and Dragons, Magic: The Gathering, and all sorts of board games.

“Ever heard of Pandemic?” Becker said. “Or Ticket to Ride?”

Local artist “Kev Dog,” who was once well known at Bill’s Comics, will demo his new game “Orcish Bar Brawl” on Saturday, Becker said. On Sunday he’ll be showing off a podracer game.

The store had a soft opening on July 8, and a ribbon-cutting was held Sept. 12.
