BNW has gone Swiss!

Posted by Eric On February - 18 - 2014

We are happy to announce that Tuesday night Magic booster drafts in our Willow Grove store are now being run Swiss style.  For those unfamiliar with the format this means that every player plays every round.  You the player get more value for your entry fee!   This differs from our previous single elimination format events, but fear not!  If you prefer single elimination events we still have those for our Thursday night “wacky pack events”.

As always, Magic booster drafts begin on both Tuesday and Thursday night @ 7:30 PM with $15 entry fees.  One booster pack per person is contributed towards the prize pool.

Prizes for the Tuesday Swiss event are split: 1 pack to 3rd place, 1 pack to 4th place, 2/3 of the remaining prize pool to 1st place, and 1/3 of the remaining prize pool to 2nd place.

Prizes for the Thursday single elimination event are bigger but only go to 1st place unless 1st and 2nd place agree to split prizes.

If you have any additional questions or concerns please contact our Willow Grove location.

New Serenity Series Ghost Variant

Posted by BRiAN On January - 27 - 2014
Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don’t care, I’m still free
You can’t take the sky from me.Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain’t comin’ back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can’t take the sky from me.Leave the men where they lay
They’ll never see another day
Lost my soul, lost my dream
You can’t take the sky from me.I feel the black reaching out
I hear its song without a doubt
I still hear and I still see
That you can’t take the sky from me.Lost my love, lost my land
Lost the last place I could stand
There’s no place I can be
Since I’ve found SerenityAnd you can’t take the sky from me.
