Ixalan League!

There’s a new Magic set so that means Magic League will be starting soon. We changed league days to Sunday this block, with league running the 4 weeks between October 1st and October 22nd. As always, you can come in any day we’re open and play games. Sign up starts this week and you can pick up your league kit on Sunday, October 1st.

For $20 you get 3 packs, a special promo card, a storage box and a match card. With your 3 starting packs, you’ll build a 30 card (minimum) deck. Record your cards and start playing! You can join the league at any time by buying packs to catch up.

You can buy a new booster pack each week AND after losing 3 matches. Matches are best out of 1. Record your matches on your match card and at the end of 4 weeks we’ll award prizes for the following:

Highest Win Percentage*: 1st and 2nd place
Most total wins: 1st place
Most total losses: 1st place
Most Games Played: 1st place

All players get a special promo card, while supplies last.

Like last season, we need a minimum of 8 players for prize payout. With more players, we’ll add more prizes. Each week we’ll have an achievement or two posted on our Facebook page so be sure to follow us. On Sundays, we’ll award prizes for that week’s achievement.

See additional rules and info on our Magic: the Gathering page.

*must play at least 10 games to qualify

Magic: the Gathering Ixalan

As you might have heard, a new set for Magic: the Gathering is coming out this month — IXALAN! For pre-release this coming weekend, we’re running regular pre-releases Friday midnight, Saturday morning and evening, and Sunday morning. Sunday afternoon we have Two-Headed Giant scheduled. We’re capping 2HG at 8 teams this time, so if you want to play be sure to get on the list.

Everyone had so much fun with Hour of Devastation League, we’ve signed up to run it for Ixalan. We’ll have the same basic set up (3 packs, buy 1 every week or after 3 losses, prizes based on number of participants) but this time every player will be getting a special League promo card — Unclaimed Territory as well as a League storage box.  M:tG League starts October 1st, with League play days every Sunday through October 22nd.

For Draft Weekend (September 30th and October 1st), we’re holding 2 Sealed events, with entry at $25.

Ixalan Standard Showdown starts October 8th and will run through December 24th in preparation for the Store Championship on December 31st. I can assure you, we will be open on the 24th and the 31st!

September Events and Releases

September is a busy month, with a new D&D book, a Magic release, new Star Wars: Destiny and the start of a new Warmachine league.

We will have Tomb of Annihilation, the new D&D book, available Friday, September 8th. As a Wizards of the Coast retailer, we have the book available 2 weeks early. The new Adventurers League season accompanying the book has an interesting spin: “The death curse”. You can read more about it in the Adventurers League Primer.

We’ll have a limited number of boxes for Star Wars: Destiny Empire at War available September 15th for $99.

Our next build and paint event will be September 17th, from 3pm to 6pm. We’ll be featuring miniatures from Games Workshop, with a range of 40k and Age of Sigmar models available to assemble and paint. Already have something you’re working on? Bring it in and take advantage our our paints and tools!

Ixalan pre-releases have been scheduled for the weekend of September 23rd. We’re hosting our first ever midnight pre-release, as well as events Saturday morning, Saturday evening, Sunday morning and Two-Headed Giant Sunday afternoon. $24 if you pre-register and pay in advance, $28 day of the event.

Adding to our regular Wednesday Warmachine events, we’re starting a Journeyman League for new Warmachine and Hordes players on the 27th. Starting out with a Battlebox, players will gradually add to their army until they have a 75-point army. We’ll have more information available later in the month, so keep an eye on our Facebook page or our event schedule for more info.

Rounding out the month, we will be doing a learn and play for Sea of Clouds on September 30th. Participants will have an opportunity to win a special promo captain and a chance to buy a copy of the game at a discount. It’s a fun, easy to learn game that’s good for mixed age groups.
