Lock-In! Friday-Saturday June 10th-11th

Come celebrate the release of Eternal Masters and play in draft. Sign ups are necessary. We will run this after our regular FNM and play into the wee hours. The earliest it will start is 11:30pm. You must have a reliable ride home. We will not stick around after 7am. No one under 16 is permitted after midnight.

We will run 3 tables – 24 players total (maybe more if demand warrants it). These drafts will be $30 per person. We will NOT be doing our usual rare & foil drafting after the tournament. What you pull for draft is what you keep. There will be no other prize support for this event.

Don’t play Magic? Come play anything else – bring your friends. All the tables are open for play. The store will be open all night long.

Youth Magic Tournament

Don’t forget our first monthly youth tournament for Magic. These will continue on the last Sunday of each month at 1pm.

Age restriction: You must be under 16 on the day of this event to enter
Cost: $4
Format: 3 rounds Standard (Dragons of Tarkir forward)
Further details on the format can be found here.

Prize support: 1st place 2 packs, all others 1 pack

FNM is early tomorrow if at all

FNM will be an early draft this week due to the blizzard! We will not rare and foil draft after the event so anyone called home by someone smarter than us can leave when they need to. The store will close no later than 3:30pm. It may close much earlier. Once started, there will be no refunds. Everyone will get at least one prize pack of Oath. The draft will start at 10:30am. (This may change if the snow strikes early. Please call ahead if you have any doubt.)
