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.
