MTG Gatecrash Pre-Release Tournament
Saturday, January 26th @ Noon AND Sunday, January 27th @ Noon
Continuing our very fun and successful series of Magic events, Gamescape is pleased to be hosting a double-dip of Magic: The Gathering Pre-Release spectaculars! Gatecrash releases on Friday, February 2nd. Our Pre-Releases will take place one week before then on Saturday and Sunday, January 26th and 27th at 12:00 noon. The format for these events will be Sealed Deck Tournament.
If you’re interested in attending either or both events, we ask that you please sign-up ahead of time, as we have limited space for each. You can do this in a number of ways: either by calling the store, sending an e-mail, or by dropping into the store in-person. Please include your DCI number when you register. There are 66 spaces available on each day, so be sure to reserve yours soon! We ask also that you please arrive to the tournament before 12:00 noon in order to pay your entry fee of $30.00. Included in your entry will be a MTG Gatecrash Guild Pre-Release pack which contains five Gatecrash booster packs, one guild-specific pack, and a Pre-Release foil promo card stylized to each guild that players may use in the event.
Important note: you will need to let us know your preferred choice of Guild when you sign up, as specific tournament Guild Packs will be distributed accordingly in order of your position on the registration list, and only while supplies last. In other words, you’ll have a much better choice of Guild if you sign up early!
Both Sealed Tournaments will consist of one flight of entrants with the goal of the event to be completed by 6pm. Prizes will be given in the form of MTG Gatecrash booster packs, promo cards, and some other nifty prize support that we have in the store. We regret that we will not be admitting players after 12:00pm SHARP, provided that there is space left on the day of the event. Please arrive as early as you can.
MTG Gatecrash Release Tournament – Friday, February 2nd @ 6pm
If you’re not able to make either of the Pre-Release events, we will be holding another big Tournament on the day that MTG Gatecrash releases. If you’re interested in attending, please arrive before 6:00pm to sign in. The entrance fee for the event is $30.00, which guarantees each player six MTG Gatecrash booster packs for deck-building, as well as the potential for additional prize support based on final placement. This Sealed Deck Tournament will consist of four rounds of swiss pairing, with the goal of the tournament to be done by 10:30pm. Please sign up early to ensure a spot in the tournament.
