On Saturday the 16th of January we're holding Pre-Release event for the upcoming Oath of the Gatewatch
We are again going to hold two events on the same day! (don't worry we've gotten more fans this time and a large air conditioning unit)
One in the Afternoon - 12:00 till 17:00
And one in the Evening - 18:00 till 23:00
Tickets are £20 until the 11th of January, and £22 after that. Tickets are available in-store, or on our website. There may be tickets available on the day, but please book in advance to avoid disappointment.
Pre-releases are Sealed Deck format events, where players are given Pre-release Packs and time to construct a 40-card minimum deck. The Oath of the Gatewatch pre-release is being run as a 2-Headed Giant format as recomended by Wizards!
Pre-release Packs make deck-building more exciting with the inclusion of specialized, “seeded” booster packs and regular booster packs that let players choose a focus for their deck.
Players who are uncomfortable building a Sealed Deck may participate in Open Dueling instead of the main tournament. Open Dueling players use an Intro Pack to experience the new set a week before it hits shelves.
Prerelease events focus on fun and enjoying the upcoming Magic expansion, allowing players a chance to experience the newest cards in a fun and stress-free environment. That said, as Sealed Deck tournaments, they follow certain rules for deck construction and play.
- Decks must be constructed with a minimum of 40 cards
- Decks may only be built using cards opened in the
Pre-release Packs assigned at the beginning of the
event, and no outside cards may be added.
Players get to keep all of the cards opened in their Pre-release Pack or Intro Pack. In addition Pre-release Packs contain a premium foil Pre-release promo to keep. Players who participate in the tournament also have a chance to win additional booster packs of the newest set—an exclusive opportunity to take home even more of the latest cards before they’re available to purchase in stores!
Additional Prizes will include boosters for all Participants
