Join us this Saturday, March 1st @ 12 noon to play in our Magic: the Gathering standard constructed event. Your $6 entry will get you an extended art version of Kiora’s Follower (pictured below). The top 8 players will also receive an alternate art foil Pain Seer (also pictured below). 1st place also wins a special playmat that reads “champion” (you guessed it… pictured below!). 1 and 1/2 pack of Born of the Gods booster packs will be contributed towards the prize pool.
If you don’t feel like playing in the event, be sure to stop in and test one of your current decks against the “Battle the Horde” game day deck. This is free of charge! If you enjoy playing against the Horde deck we will have copies available for purchase.
For full details on the Born of the Gods Game Day feel free to visit the official website here.
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.
From the Vault: Twenty is now on sale in both locations for $124.99. For more info and a complete spoiler for From the Vault: Twenty, please go here.
