Hey, those do not look like Pokemon

Not Pokemon.

If you enjoy tabletop games or video games and are looking to befriend people with similar interests, consider Eudemonia on 2154 University Avenue. Eudemonia is a store dedicated to gaming of all types; they sell trading card games, board games, role-playing games and other merchandise. They also offer PCs installed with a constantly expanding library of games. The PCs are up-to-date with new releases such as “Dead Island,” “Warhammer 40k: Space Marine” and “Deus Ex: Human Revolution.” However, Eudemonia is not simply a retail space but a source of community. The store hosts numerous events such as pre-release and release parties for new TCG products. Every Tuesday is “Type Two Tuesday” where “Magic: the Gathering” players can meet up and play against each other. Every Thursday is “Board Game Night,” where participants play various  strategy games and card games together. There are also occasionally LAN events such as the BATLL (Bay Area TeamLiquid LAN) Starcraft II tournament.
