Khans of Tarkir Pre-Release Events Saturday and Sunday, September 20th-21st

khans-banner

Khans of Tarkir is the latest set for Magic: the Gathering, and the start of Tarkir block. Khans is a “wedge” set, focusing on five clans, each of which is identified by a wedge of 3 colors–a color and its two enemy colors. Khans takes place on the homeworld of the dragon-worshipping planeswalker Sarkhan Vol. Khans of Tarkir also brings reprints of the very popular Onslaught allied-color fetchlands!

Magic Pre-Release events allow you to play with the latest Magic set before it releases to the general public. Pre-Release events are casual tournaments designed for all skill levels, and serve as a great introduction to tournament play for new players.

Format:
This is a sealed deck event and continues the tradition of allowing players to choose from five different pre-release kits, each focused on one of the five clans of Tarkir. Each kit contains 5 packs of Khans of Tarkir, 1 special pack of clan-aligned cards (including the pre-release promo), a spindown die, and more. Each player builds a 40-card minimum deck from the cards in their kit.

For Tarkir block there is a new twist on pre-release promos. Instead of just five promos, one for each clan, there are 8 possible promo cards for each clan, meaning there are a potential total 40 pre-release promos! Your pre-release promos CAN be used in your sealed deck.

Event Times:
Pre-Release events will be run at midnight on Saturday morning (that’s a minute past 11:59 on Friday night), 11AM Saturday, 2-Headed Giant Sealed at 3:30PM on Saturday, and 12PM (Noon) on Sunday. Pre-registration (at the store) is HIGHLY recommended (or you can call in a pre-registration with a credit card). Pre-Release events are very popular and the total number of players in each of the five clans will be limited. The total players for the Saturday Midnight and 11AM events will be capped at 40, while 2-headed Giant and Sunday’s event will be capped at 20 players each. Due to the popularity of the fetchland reprints, events will likely sell out early.

Prizes:
In addition to guaranteeing your spot in the event, pre-registering and pre-paying will give you TWO entries into the door prize giveaway. The ultimate prize for the door prize is a copy of From the Vault: Annihilation! In addition, we will be continuing the “Free Foil Board” that we introduced with the M15 pre-release. For every match win, draw a card from the random foil board! You never know what you may pull…

Cost:
The cost is, as always, $25. There will be 4 total swiss rounds with prize payouts based on your overall record in the event.

Have Fun!
Pre-releases are casual, fun events where you get the opportunity to play with the new set’s cards before they release. If you’ve never attended a tournament before, this is a great way to get involved with no pressure!

Star City Games “Game Night” Every Wednesday Night!

x-wing_play_1

tokenSquirrelBeginning Wednesday September 3rd, we will be hosting Star City Games “Game Night”. Game Night is a casual event for players of all skill levels. As such, we will be hosting Game Night using the Commander (EDH) format. Star City Games provides unique prizes for Game Night. For the month of September, these are foil Squirrel Tokens and Squirrel Pins. Entry is $5 and additional prizes in the form of store credit. The event will begin at 6:30PM.

For those not familiar with the Commander format, Commander is a multi-player format originally called “Elder Dragon Highlander”. In the Commander format, you choose a single legendary creature card to be your ‘general’. You then build a 99-card deck with cards that ONLY match the color(s) of your general. For example, if your commander is White-Blue-Black, you can only include cards whose casting cost includes White, Blue, Black, or Colorless, or combinations thereof (White/Blue, Blue/Black, White/Black, etc.). In addition, aside from basic land, you can only have one copy of each card in your 99-card deck.

X-Wing Demo and Tournament Saturday August 23rd

logo-x-wing

if you haven’t played Fantasy Flight Games’ X-Wing yet, you are missing out on a fantastic experience! There is a very low barrier to entry for this game, as opposed to traditional minis games like Warhammer 40K and Warmachine. And, if you don’t have the time or skills for the hobby side of the game, all X-Wing minis are pre-painted (and beautifully done, unlike a lot of existing pre-painted minis). A standard 100-point/side game takes about 40-50 minutes to complete.

x-wing_play_1

If you are interested in learning X-Wing, we will be hosting a demo event this coming Saturday, followed by an official X-Wing tournament. The demo will begin at Noon on 8/23, followed by a tournament at 1:30. Players who wish to participate in the tournament will be required to bring a legal 100-point force to the event. The demo is FREE for all, while entry to the tournament is $5. Prizes will be provided in the form of acrylic tokens, alternate art pilot cards, and X-Wing card storage boxes.

Magic: M15 Pre-Release Events Saturday July 12th and Sunday July 13th

M15 is the latest Core Set for Magic: the Gathering. M15 continues the trend of previous core sets with new cards, and key reprints. M15 also introduces a slightly redesigned card border, updated font, and anti-counterfeiting holostamp on rare cards.

Magic Pre-Release events allow you to play with the latest Magic set before it releases to the general public. Pre-Release events are fun, casual tournaments designed for all skill levels.

This is a sealed deck event. Similar to previous events of this type, each participant will receive one of five pre-release kits oriented towards one of the five colors of Magic. Each kit contains 5 packs of M15, 1 special “color-seeded” pack, a promo card, a spindown d20 die, and an oversized Garruk Planeswalker card to be used in a fun side-event. Each player builds a 40-card minimum deck from the cards in their kit. You are allowed to use your pre-release promo in your deck!

m15_prereleaseThere will be at least four events during Pre-Release weekend: Saturday July 12th at Midnight (Sealed Deck), Saturday July 12th at 11AM (Sealed Deck), Saturday July 12th at 3:30PM (2-Headed Giant Sealed), and Sunday July 13th at 12:00PM (Sealed Deck). If there is sufficient demand we will run a second sealed or 2-Headed Giant Sealed on Sunday.

Pre-registration (at the store) is strongly recommended. Pre-Release events are very popular and the total number of players in each of the five colors will be limited. In addition, pre-registering and pre-paying will give you TWO entries into the door prize raffle.

There will be a ton of cool giveaways for door prizes, including an all new Relentless Dragon playmat, sleeves, deck boxes, and more. Also, we will be raffling off the 9-foot tall Garruk standee to one lucky winner.

Also, starting with M15 we are introducing a cool new feature–the mystery foil board! For every match win, pick a card from the foil board. You might pull a foil common, maybe a foil rare, or maybe an expensive highly-sought after card!

The cost is, as always, $25.

There will be 4 total swiss rounds with prize payouts based on your overall record in the event. (Payout tables are based on minimum 32-player participation.) WOTC limits total prize pool to two packs per participating player, thus payouts will be lower with less players.

Pre-releases are casual, fun events where you get the opportunity to play with the new set’s cards before they release. If you’ve never attended a tournament before, this is a great way to get involved with no pressure!

In addition, the top 16 players will each receive an exclusive alternate art Bandit Squadron pilot card.
