Hi my names Joe and I'd like to announce that, this Friday May 20th, RIW Hobbies is starting a Countdown to Captain America League. This is an 8 week league, playing every Friday, with prizes given out on the Wednesday of The Captain America sets release. Prizes will consist of Captain America boosters, Fast Forces and possibaly Gravity Feed Boosters. Exact amount is based on number of players.

As you can see I took some pointers from the realms and created a house rule for the silver age (that being, any figure with a character card and feats being allowed). Also please note that I'll be playing too, but any questions about my games will be handled by a different person.
Small turn out for the first game, only 4 players, but that's alright. That allows for new players to be in the hunt. The leader only has 5 points, nothing that can't be made up. Come on and join us this Friday at 6:30pm for 300pt golden age goodness. Any and all are welcome.
I'm totally new to Heroclix, and I live near enough to RIW that I'd like to come check this out. Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it out tonight or next week. Is there any other southeast MI HC action that isn't on Friday nights? I have yet to play a real game against a real person, and I'm chomping at the bit.
Hey, it's Sprow. Lately, my job has had me working weekday evenings, so I haven't been able to make it out. As it turns out, though, this job kind of sucks, so I'm looking for something new. Hopefully I'll be able to get some fridays off in the near future.
