This weekend we will have part two of the prerelease/release for March of the machines, and I can report that the set is hella fun! (We actually had a near full house on last Friday).
Plus I’m gonna do something on Saturday at 2ish that is spectacularly stupid.*
Aside from pretty epic story-telling, the last couple of Magic sets see to be getting more and more fun to play, and March of the Machines looks to keep that trend going . (If you wanna check out the set in a fun way, do some practices drafts/sealed using Draftsim.) Remember to get tix in advance to save the extra $5…$35 day of event, $30 in advance, so get tix at store or online early)
- 4/21 Friday 7PM Sealed
- 4/22 Saturday
- 4/23 Sunday
*So about being purposefully stupid:
About 4 months ago, Wizards did an epically stupid thing in creating the $1000 30th Anniversary Edition with “reprints” of most of the important cards they promised they would never reprint. About a month ago they sent us the copy they promised each of the local game stores.
What: On Saturday I’m gonna take them and do something on camera that I’ve banned from the store. We’re gonna play Rip it or Flip it.
Why!!!: I’m not actually being that “flip” about this. With each pack we rip, I’m going to publicly call out Wizards for some things they are doing that are as bad to LGS’s as the Open License debacle was for D&D developers. I’m hoping if this gets enough attention, it might spark some changes here as well.
