MTG Aether Revolt Pre-Release Tournaments
Saturday, January 14th @ Noon AND Sunday, January 15th @ 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 Aether Revolt releases on Friday, January 20th. Our Pre-Releases will take place one week before then on Saturday and Sunday, January 14th and 15th at 12:00 noon. We’ll be hosting Sealed Deck Tournaments on both days.
If you’re interested in attending either of the pre-release tournaments, we ask that you please sign-up ahead of time, as we have limited space for the event. 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. There are 66 spaces available each day, so be sure to reserve yours soon! We ask also that you please arrive to the tournaments at least one hour early in order to pay your entry fee of $30.00. Each player will receive a MTG Aether Revolt Pre-Release Pack after paying for entry.
The weekend’s tournaments will each consist of one flight of entrants with the goal of each event to be completed by 6pm. For a great introduction to playing in this format, check out WotC’s MTG Pre-Release Primer. Prizes will be given in the form of MTG Aether Revolt 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 11:30am SHARP. Please arrive as early as you can to ensure that we get playing as soon as possible.
MTG Aether Revolt Release Tournament – Friday, January 20th @ 6pm
If you’re not able to make the Pre-Release, we’ll be holding the Release Tournament on the Friday that MTG Aether Revolt releases for sale. If you’re interested in attending, please arrive before 5:30pm to sign in and hold your spot in the event. We always recommend signing up ahead of time, just in case things fill up quickly. This Sealed Deck Tournament will consist of four rounds of Swiss pairing using MTG Kaladesh and Aether Revolt booster packs, likely to be finished by 10:30pm.
