While the weekend of Feb 22nd will include the return of one of our fav’s, the Mystery Box Two-headed giant, where each payer blindly reaches into the big box of goodness and picks a random intro pack and uses the cards from it’s deck plus the two bonus packs to blend with their partners to make two killer decks to be played side by side, the weekend that follows will bring the challenges up to a whole new level. March 1st and 2nd will be Game Day for the Born of the Gods set. For those who don’t know, Game day is a standard tournament ($5) entry that is unique because it is the only day to get one of 3 special prizes. The first 30 people who enter each day will get a special full art version of Kiora’s Follower. The top 8 players for each day will get a special full art foil version of the Pain Seer, and el numero uno each day will get the special Born of the Gods Game Day Champion playmat. This does tend to be a more competitive event, so while kids can participate, they should both know how to play and to be ok with swimming with the big dogs and learning from playing against some really good decks. (There are some of the kids that not only can give the adults a run for their money, but wouldn’t surprise us in the least to see walking out with the playmat.) Oh, and one more thing, since Channel Fireball has opted to run a PTQ on that weekend, some of our best players may not be here for the event, which opens up that top slot even more. If you want to practice your standard skills, come by for our regular Sunday Tournament at 11ish and see what your deck can do. The new cards are sparking the imagination of players for a lot of interesting home brewed decks.
In addition, for that day we will be running the Battle the Hordes Deck as the 6th of 9 challenges in the Theros Hero’s path. Bring in a standard deck to run against this swarming special deck that was built in the mode of the Face the Hydra deck. We will be giving out extra promo cards to those who beat this deck on it’s harder levels and will give extra full art cards to players on Sunday after the final registration for the second Game Day has let us know what is left over.

My uncle Richie was a good guy. Not just because of what he meant to me, but in the big picture, doing major good in the world sort of way. The last thing he did, before needing to retire because of his cancer a month ago, was to be the head of Illinois Department ofContinue Reading
