The new Magic core set is here! And to celebrate, as we always do, we’re hosting a couple of great events this coming weekend. On Friday night, we’re running a MTG 2010 Release Tournament in Sealed Deck format, and on Saturday, we’re devoting the day to a MTG 2010 Launch Party. Details on both events are below.
MTG 2010 Release Tournament – Fri, July 17th @ 6pm
If you’re interested in attending the tournament, you must arrive before 6:00 pm to sign in and purchase your cards package. This package will consist of six MTG 2010 boosters for an entry fee of $30.
There will be multiple 8-person pods which will each last 3 rounds, with the goal of each mini-tournament to be done by 10pm. Prizes will be given in the form of promo cards, playmats, and some other nifty prize support that we have in the store.
We ask that you please sign up for this event in advance, either by e-mail, phone, or drop-in so we can get a rough number of players joining us for the tournament. We regret that we will not be admitting players after 6pm SHARP. Please arrive as early as you can.
MTG 2010 Launch Party – Sat, July 18th @ 12pm
Join us for our MTG 2010 Launch Party on the weekend after its release! All day in the store, 12 noon to 6pm, we’ll be running booster drafts and casual play. No matter what your play-style is, you’ll find some options for a good day spent with the new set.
Launch Party Booster Draft
We’ll be organizing a Booster Draft tournament when people arrive, preferably organized into 8-person pods. Entry will be the cost of three boosters, with rare and foil cards drafted out according to placement and extra foil promo cards and limited-edition playmats added in for prizes!
Launch Party Open Dueling
Magic players also have the option to sign up for Open Dueling. Open Dueling is an informal and flexible format ideal for new or returning Magic players. Entry fee payment ($15) will entitle you to (1) one Intro Pack, (1) one Open Dueling Results Card, and (1) one special foil promo card (while supplies last). After you complete five matches the organizer will reward you with one complementary Magic booster pack.
Special Box Discounts
We’re offering 20% off the retail price on full boxes of new MTG 2010 boosters if you’re in our Customer Rewards system or if you sign up for our program. The points that you accrue on the purchase will also be tallied on your account. Individual boosters will remain at the standard retail price of $3.99. In addition, WotC is offering a special foil promo card of Honor the Pure to anyone who purchases a full box of boosters from us.
