Grab a friend and have an amazing time!
Gamers are really hard to buy for, aren't they?! But fear not, local artist Kamakru has come through with lovely PLAYMATS! $35 gets you a classy present they don't already own--and isn't just another handful of booster packs! She's presently an in-store artist only, but let us know if you need something out of town!
We also have some original work, lovely prints and zipper pouches here in-store!

"Shout out to the Nerd Out friends and family in the Seattle area. Are you familiar with a very special pocket dimension disguised as a retail store? That Steampunk paradise is the one and only Otherworlds. Located in Edmonds, WA, Otherworlds is a book store/tea party/gaming and music haven. Craving some Victorian Steampunk, futuristic science, or magical fantasy? Then you need to visit Otherworlds." Read on for me nervously but excitedly answering questions!
June 30th-July 1st
This June 30th, we'll have been here five years! Come buy a thing any time this weekend, and draw to win coupons and gift certificates up to $100! Thanks so much for supporting us all this time! Impress us with your costume and draw TWICE! If you arrive when there is cake, yay cake! If not...the CAKE IS A LIE...(It is carrot, and in the form of mini cupcakes from PCC. MMM)
Come by at 12:30 for a meet and greet with author Paul Keyes, and stay for the Edmonds Art Festival! Loads of food carts!
Some offerings for pride month! We're working on more--looking for geeky ideas! I'm thinking a variant on the IDIC from Star Trek--"Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations". Thoughts?

David Tennant, Christopher Eccelston, Matt Smith, or Peter Capaldi? =D
In 1698, Russia's Peter the Great enacted a controversial beard tax after touring Europe and finding most men to be clean shaven. To avoid being forcibly shaved in public, the wearer must present a beard token like this one to prove that he'd paid the required tax.
Friends don't let friends get caught by the dreaded BEARD TAX!
Saturday, June 17th, come meet local author Paul Keyes as he introduces you to his series, The Arcadian Complex! A beautiful blend of fantasy and sci/fi, this series can appeal to lovers of both genres.
From 12:30 until about 1:30, Paul will be on hand to talk about and read from his books, as well as to sign copies!
Established in June 2012, Otherworlds is co-owned and operated by the hapless Brynn and Ahren, encouraged and enabled by Braden, Angela, Taryn, Megan, and Nora (You know who you are)(We love you guys).
