This year, a number of our regulars are headed to Genghis Con. Genghis Con is a gaming convention taking place over President's Day Weekend (Thursday, 11-Feb through Sunday, 14-Feb). There are over 50 tables of D&D scheduled including 4 sessions of Fai Chen's Faire, the last chance anyone has to play a season 3 epic, the first chance to play some of the last expeditions of season 3, and a few tables of an author only game where Robbert Adduci will be running special Adventure League content that no one else is allowed to run.
So, Oath of the Gatewatch is coming up quickly. It's only next week. HOW CRAZY! They're also trying to push more Two Headed Giant into the format. Well, we're going to follow up on this due to how our community likes to play. That said, once a month we will be doing Two Headed Giant of some kind instead of a regular draft after Oath releases. With this, I will be hosting 2 of the Two Headed Giant events for the prerelease. The schedule will be as follows:
I bet everyone is freaking out about the return to Zendikar as much as we are. Starting Friday September 25th at Midnight (Technically Saturday the 26th) we will have our first Battle for Zendikar Pre-release Event! It is 30 dollars which will get you a sealed box (that is not color specific this time around) and whatever other goodies there may be. Our prize support tends to be more "shallow" than big. If you win at least 2 of your rounds out of the 3 that will be held, you will get prizes based on how many people attend.
Woo! We've got a long weekend ahead of us. Starting Friday July 10th at Midnight (Technically Saturday the 11th) we will have our first Origins Pre-release! It is 30 dollars which gets your sealed box, opportunities for whatever other goodies Wizards has sent, and the prize support for the event. We will also be having events on Saturday and Sunday in hopes of having multiple times that work for people. That said, our schedule will be as below.
As summer approaches, we have two individuals who are looking to do something to pass the time. The first is our very own Ryan who wants to run a roleplaying group for those who "Wish to try roleplaying, get back into roleplaying, or are just generally new to roleplaying" given a variety of options. He wants to run this group on Mondays at a time that works for most of who are interested and will be running it in tandem with some other projects. Given this, he wants some feedback on what people would like to try.
The Dragons of Tarkir league has gotten underway! It's going to work just like the last one. That means that you start your pool with a Dragons Pre-Release box. After that, you may add two drafts each month to your pool (or open 3 packs in front of Jackson or another league player if you can't/don't draft), there is infinite in-league training (with no external incentives), minimum deck size of 60, as many copies of a card as you want in a deck. We'll still be playing for fun whenever you feel like it (Jackson has a great deck this time around).
This is our first Big Set Pre-Release since moving and we hope you'll attend! We will be doing 5 events over the course of this weekend.
The times for the events will be as follows:
Friday the 20th at Midnight.
Saturday the 21st at 11AM, 3PM, and 8PM.
Sunday the 22nd at 11AM. This will also be a 2-Headed Giant Sealed Event.
Now that things have normalized a bit in the store, we wanted to see what new kinds of events everyone would be interested in. Come vote on our poll so we can see what kinds of events everyone wants us to run!
