    Tonight's Stories


    Been awhile since we had some randomness in the Roundup.

    More Arabic Best Night Ever Song Clips

    We reported on the Arabic version of At the Gala a few nights ago and since then we have received a few more clips in the inbox! Check them out!

    Looks like the MyLittlePonyAraby channel just released the Arabic versions of the other two songs from "The Best Night Ever"

    Word of Warning - Dark Skyes

    According to various sources, the Dark Skyes project we linked in the Roundup a few nights ago may in fact be a scam! Listen to the speculation yourself:

    "EQD had reported on that "Dark Skyes" pony dating sim Kickstarter project in a nightly roundup a few days ago. There's been some evidence that this might be a scam pulled off by an internet prank group, Million Dollar Extreme.

    We have the following two Facebook things - both which have since been taken down from FB but I know the first one existed:

    https://derpicdn.net/img/view/2014/3/10/571577.png (from Sam Hyde's account, the lead of MDE)

    Note that looking for any points, Sam Hyde's name on google hits a bunch of other prank things.

    They've updated the KS here to claim that this isn't a scam: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2110528317/dark-skyes-an-epic-brony-dating-sim/posts/772597 "

    Judge for yourself, but please be wary before donating.

    MLP CCG Meetups

    Greetings Equestria Daily. I am Slipstream and I come to you from New Hampshire to let you know of two locations in this state that are participating in MLP Card Game Events.

    The first is Double Midnight Comics in Manchester, NH. We run Sunday events between 12pm and 4pm and run tournaments as well as teach new players how to play the game. My friend, Sugar Salt, runs that event as Tournament Organizer.

    Double Midnght Comics' address is 245 Maple Street, Manchester, NH. It's in the plaza on the corners of Maple and Valley Street.

    The second is Harrison's Comics in Nashua, NH. Those events are held Wednesday nights between 6pm and 9pm and will most likely extend past those hours after winter is wrapped up. Right now we're trying to get a stable amount of players for the store to get support from Enterplay so we can run tournaments. Once that happens, I will be that store's Tournament Organizer.
