Prerelease this weekend (April 26th and 27th)! Spots are going fast and you should sign up if you plan on being here this weekend. We are having 5 events to accommodate all schedules and will be here ALL WEEKEND! BBQ on Saturday!
Also the Following weekend will have some other great events as well (May 2nd, 3rd, and 4th!). Expect to see a Post-release Prerelease or 2 as well as Free Comic Book day with huge discounts on Comics, games and MAGIC SINGLES!!!
This is the post you have all been waiting for!
So the prerelease is simple and comes in 2 flavors. For the Single Sealed event you will get a prerelease kit, and it’s $25 and will contain everything you need. For $25 you will get 2 packs of Journey, 2 packs of theros, 1 pack of Born and one color-seeded pack that will hopefully reflect the color you pick when you pay for the prerelease (lol). You will also get a spindown die and some other small documentation. You will take the 6 packs you get, open them and build the best 40 card deck out of the cards in your pool. Then you will play a swiss tournament that will last 4 or 5 rounds depending on how many people we have and packs/prizes will be awarded at the end.
Next we have 2 Headed giant where you and a partner do the same thing. 2 kits, $40, 12 packs and build the best 2 (forty card) decks out of your pool. You will then compete against other teams for 3 or 4 rounds with prizes and packs awarded to the winners. More 2HG information (like rules and such) will be presented the day of the event, but if you read up on 2 headed Giant rules beforehand you should be fine.
We have 5 prerelease events going on, but recommend signing up early (at the shop or over the phone) as we have had events in the past that we had to turn away people because we were at shop capacity;
12.01AM Sat 4/26 – Single Sealed $25 (Yes, this is a Midnight Event and will start right after we end FNM Draft)
We will open at 11AM Sharp on Saturday the 26th, and will have had 3-4 hours of sleep after the midnight event so please don’t line up at 9AM and expect to get in early. We are here at 11AM and everyone will have at least 30 minutes to build and sleeve their deck. Rounds will start at noon.
11.00AM Sat 4/26 – Single Sealed $25
5.00PM Sat 4/26 – 2 Headed Giant $40 per pair
11:00AM Sun 4/27 — Single Sealed $25
5:00PM Sun 4/27 — 2 Headed Giant $40 per pair
We have a snack area with drinks, chips, noodle bowls and easy mac so bring extra cash for food. We are also right behind a 7-11 so there are more food options (though we appreciate you looking at our options first as 7-11 doesn’t pay our rent )
We are also having a Barbecue on Sunday and will have grilled hotdog/hamburgers available for purchase.
Last thing, Parking is VERY TIGHT as we have just about 20 spaces and are going to have close to 200 people in and out of here throughout the weekend. You can park in back or in front of the building (We are in the back). You can park on the side area of 7-11 (They have never towed). You can park on the 7-11 Side of Bert’s. You can park just South of our location in the Blue strip mall’s parking lot (it’s pretty big. I guess my biggest help is that you should carpool if at all possible. We can’t afford to have every player drive a car here as we will never get everyone in and out in time for the next events.
Please feel free to call the shop – 425-415-6666 with any other questions or you can e-mail email@example.com – We would rather answer the same question 20 times than have people show up unprepared.
This weekend we have an INCREDIBLE opportunity to draft a set that hs been called “One of the best drafts ever” by more than one person. These boxes are impossible to come by and rather than let it sell pack by pack, we wanted to let you have the chance to draft.
Only 8 spots available. We may never be able to draft this set again! $80 for entry and there will be store credit given out as prizes to the top 4 places. Everyone will get 3 packs to open and this will run as a normal 8 person draft (Please ASK if you are unfamiliar with drafting before you sign up for this). You must play at least 2 rounds, but proxies will be acceptable for anything high dollar that is pulled (Must be checked by the judge)
Also, Journey into Nyx Preorders and Prerelease signups are under way! We will be holding 5 events on the weekend of April 26th and 27th. Watch this space or come in to the shop for more info!
Plus – Modern on Saturday evening! 5-9PM
So much to do, hope to see you here for something!
This Saturday April 5th, we will be celebrating International Tabletop Day! This is Wil Wheaton’s holiday where everyone plays board games. We will have free demos, a chance to play new games and prizes galore! We will also have special Guest RK Post signing autographs and doing Magic Card Type things from Noon until 5PM. The shop will stay open as late as we need (Probably until 8 or 9)
