BTW…GREAT Draft Practice sites

Come on in.  Drafts are a great way for everybody to start out on the same footing and have an equal chance to win and an guaranteed chance to have fun. While we have some great competitive players, we take great pride in remembering that playing games is supposed to be fun and focusing on helping everybody have a great time.

Players should know how to play the game, but players who have never tried drafting, new players, and players who haven’t played for a long time will find us a warm and welcoming group, who will help them to get comfortable so we can add new people to our mix.If you want help in getting more comfortable before hand, come on in and we’ll hook you up with one of our regulars to help out.  Being a comfortable and fun place to play is our specialty.

We also run kid specific drafts on the first Saturday of each month. We also do Two-headed Giants on most other Saturdays that end by 8:30 and are friendly for almost every age and experience group.

What:   Two-headed giant is a two player team event (4 packs per person), where the two players share their cards to make a deck for each of them that they play as a team.  Great for buddies, couples, parent kid combos or anyone who wants to share the fun.  Kinda like tandem skydiving, as long as one person knows how to play, the other can just enjoy the ride.

What: Draft–Each player gets 3 packs, opens and picks a card and passes the rest to the person next to them.  Lather, rinse and repeat until all the cards from the packs have been picked.  Take about 23-26 of the 40+ cards you get and add land to make a 40 card minimum deck. Play 3 rounds, win a round, win a pack with an option of a free draft to those who go undefeated.  Since it’s a new set, and none of us know what we are doing yet, it’s a great time for new players to come and join.

Kaladesh @ D20 Games

 

  kaladesh-prerelease-medium-2About Kaladesh:  A few years ago, Wizards had the foresight to remind everyone that people are more then they are portrayed, by creating a world inspired by some of the historical spectacle and invention of the Middle East.  The result is Kaladesh,  a land of master craftsmen’s creations and invention, where mechanical beasts battle great ships that fill the sky, echos the days when the Islamic Golden Age lead the world in innovations of science, art, mathematics, craftsmanship, and other creations of brilliant and open minds. (Ok…I’ll admit that as a dad, I love when the fun also brings a bit of learning, and more important, a more open perspective.  We have a lot of people painting simplistic pictures of a group that consists of 1/3 of the world.  I try not to bring political options into the store, but if you have to think about people in groups, there is never a time when getting a more rounded view of their heritage is anything but a good thing)

The set also features a set of special treats.  Just like the super rare Expedition lands from Zendikar, that created special foil versions of some of the most popular lands from the history of magic, Kaladesh introduces the Masterpiece: Inventions.  A set of some of the coolest artifacts from all time, from Crucible of Worlds to an amazing version of the Commander staple, Sol Ring.

If you want to take a look at all the cards in the set, click here, or if you want to do a simulated opening of bunches of packs or do test sealed or drafts to get familiar with the set, click here.

Kaladesh prerelease Sept 25-26.  Boxes on preorder for 99.99 till sept 15, $109.99 till 9/21. $119.99 after that.  The set releases Friday, Sept. 30th, and we will be open at midnight on the Thursday before to give folks their boxes if they want.

Kaladesh Prerelease Kits…6 booster Packs, Special foil Promo card and limited edition life counter die

The cards in this set reflect the Inventor’s fair that is taking place, with a special focus on artifacts and those that create them.  There are extra abilities, such as vehicles, that are mere inert artifacts until other creatures lend their power to crew them and bring them to life.  There are creatures who come into play creating (either adding to their own strength, or creating little artifact creatures to help them out. And there is a new kind of energy, not mana, but special counters that can be spent at any time to help power up lots of tricks and abilities.
