It’s finally here! The new Magic: The Gathering set is right around the corner, and we’ve got a bunch of great events planned for you. Whether you want to run some competition before the boosters hit the street or join your friends in ripping open packs on the release day, we’ve got you covered. Read on for details on all three events and how you can be a part of the fun.
MTG Born of the Gods Pre-Release Tournament
Saturday, February 1st @ Noon AND Sunday, February 2nd @ 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! MTG Born of the Gods releases on Friday, February 7th. Our Pre-Releases will take place one week before then on Saturday and Sunday, February 1st and 2nd at 12:00 noon. The format for these events will be Sealed Deck.
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 Born of the Gods Mana Seeded Pre-Release pack, each of which contains a specific Pre-Release foil promo card.
Important note: you will need to let us know your preferred Mana choice when you sign up, as Mana pre-release 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 chance of acquiring your desired Mana Pack 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 Born of the Gods 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 Born of the Gods Release Tournament – Friday, February 7th @ 6pm
If you’re not able to make the either of Pre-Releases, we’ll be holding another Release Tournament on the day that MTG Born of the Gods comes out. If you’re interested in attending, please arrive before 6:00pm to sign in and purchase your cards package under the same format as above. This Sealed 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.

In addition, WotC is offering a special foil buy-a-box promo card to anyone who purchases a full box of boosters from us – also while supplies last.
