GAMES and EVENTS!

We are currently running organized Magic: The Gathering events , Heroclix, Lorcana and Dungeons & Dragons events.  If there's any organized games that you and your friends would like us to sponsor (Warhammer, Cards Against Humanity, Yu-Gi-Oh, Competitive Twister, whatever....) please get in touch with us and we'll talk about adding it to our gaming schedule. 

MAGIC: DUMPSTER FIRE

Friday, July 12th - 7:00 p.m. ($20 entry fee)

Oh, this is gonna be fun!   For this event – each player will randomly draw three packs of MAGIC from the many different packs sitting in our inventory.   You’ll open each pack, remove the tokens, and then add 25 lands to the deck.  (Five of each color.)  And that, my friend, is what you’ll be playing with for three rounds of combat!   It couldn’t be more random if we tried!  (Players will be allowed to substitute a card from the opening hand of their choice with a basic land card of your choice, so that should help out.)   

 

1st place wins 6 booster packs of Magic!

2nd place wins 4 booster packs

3rd place wins 3 booster packs

4th place wins 2 booster packs

 

All other players will receive one booster pack of MAGIC!
