Magic Origins Prerelease – July 11 & 12

Join us on July 11th & 12th, 2015 for our Magic: the Gathering pre-release celebrations, featuring the new Magic: Origins set.

The Saturday events will be held at the Churchill Park United Church, 525 Beresford Avenue (just a block from the store).

The Sunday events will be held at GameKnight Games and Cool Stuff.

On Saturday we will be holding two separate tournaments, one in the morning at 10:00 am, and one in the evening at 6:00 pm. On Sunday we will be holding one tournament at noon. Each will be a sealed deck tournament, with each player receiving a special pre-release pack that includes six boosters worth of cards from which they build their 40+ card deck. They then compete in a multi-round tournament, with loads of prizing handed out at the end.

Each tournament (or “flight”) will also feature an 0-2 Drop tournament, beginning after round 2 of the associated main event. These secondary events will be available to those that lose their first two rounds in the main event, giving them a chance to start fresh with a whole new pre-release pack, building a whole new deck.
