NOTE…the event system is $@%@ (causing me a bit of bother at the moment). So I’m going to update here for now.
Adding to below…We are starting to do cheap ($20) 6 pack M14 Magic Sealed events to get in practice for Grand Prix Oakland. We are slotting these in whenever we can. They will be for practice, not for prize, so people can pick up packs before hand and join events in progress if they can’t make it when they start (they will get a game loss for the rounds we play, but will still get the points and practice for what they do play.) People are big time encouraged to help each other out after the games to figure out how to get much better. GO TEAM D20!!!
The week that was and will be…
- So we had 26 for our Grand Prix qualifier on Sunday….since I was the organizer, I had to sit and watch instead of playing (grr)…but got in the action for a Modern Masters Draft after it was all done… Since many of us are getting ready for the Grand Prix in Oakland Aug 23-25th, every event counts these days.
- We also had a bunch of fun with the Magic Two-headed Giant on Saturday. IT DID sell out again, so make sure if you want to join us for the next one to sign up in advance.
- Modern Masters league had their last event on Tuesday before the big transition to our new regular Tuesday Modern Tournaments
- Coming up….
- Magic League starts on weds. We’re going to be doing big changes in the league, including having the Weds events as real tournaments (4pm for kids-or 5:30 for adults–kids can join if they want to). For today, we will be doing it the same as a standard sealed. For the future, players will be able to join late and just take game losses for that round, but get points for what they play(and win) for the league overall. Each event will get a booster pack for the winner and mystery packs for 2nd and third. (Sometimes there will be secret bonus prizes. )
- NEW....$20 Sealed events until Aug 11th…Getting Ready for Oakland Grand Prix we will be doing special $20 M14 sealed events. These will be for practice, so there will not be any prize support (cause they are cheap). We will charge $25 for the event, with a $5 credit toward the next one to make sure people aren’t just doing it for the packs. We will also let people get packs at the end of one event to build overnight so they can do the next event right after work. We will do one on Thursday, Friday at 4 if we get enough, and Sat at 11. Many more times to come
- Sat: Packs before…play at 1 or as soon as we have 8.
- Sun. Packs early, play at 3…We want to do a Clinic with the better players so we can all get better for this one
- MONDAY–Day time (kid friendly as well)…Packs at 10, play at 11:30
- FNM–M14…Sunday Standard and Modern Masters.
- Sat at 3:30 (to 6) Plasma Blast Prerelease!! Limited to 36 players-$30 gets 6 packs to make your best deck and play, and 2 packs when you turn in your energy at the end. In addition, player will get a promo card and a deck box. We will be able to take limited sign-ups in the morning and then will be able to take more around 12. Players will need to be in the store with $ in hand at 3:15 and we will go down the list and enter those who are present.
- We had the prerelease last weekend and will have the new extra deck packs for sale this week. Sunday at 2 for our regular event.
