A couple of particularly interesting events this weekend:
Tonight (Thursday. Aug 21st) we are having our first Star Realms tournament. This is a GREAT deck-building game that we finally got back in stock.
And on Sunday, we are having a Qualifier for the Salt Lake City Magic Grand Prix. Even if you don’t have any way to go, the qualifier is very interesting to try. If you’ve every wanted to see what it is like to play in a competitive tournament, this is a good one. It is an M15 Sealed-deck event, which means that everyone has an equal chance in terms of the cards they get. Competitive means that it includes things like opening and marking the contents of each set of six packs and then passing them around, dosie-do style so it ends up in another players hands. Decks must be made and registered (returned to the same starting state before each match, and the rules are enforced at competitive level (no, take backs, or “I actually meant to…” and playing to slowly can be called against you if the judge thinks that it is too much. This not an appropriate event for new players, but if you know how to play and want to play like the big boys (and girls) do…this is a great event.
Start time is 10 am on Sunday, Aug 24th.
