9-28 Weekly Update: Innistrad Launch Party this Sat, & Friday Draft!!!

Check the moon, because this week the werewolves and vampires are out with the new Innistrad MTG set. D20 Games will be starting off with our Friday Night Drafts using the new set, as well as hosting a huge Innistrad Launch Party on Saturday.  Saturday’s event will be a 6-pack sealed deck tournament ($25 entry fee), with a special promo card for the first 30 registered.  We will be doing two times so everyone can make it, the first at 12 noon (an early opening this week at 11:30), and the second at 6:00 p.m. Lots of rounds and lots of great prizes!!  Remember, every purchase of greater then $20 gets a discounted entry fee, so make sure to let us take care of your Innistrad needs. This is the first time in many, many years that the creator of Magic, Richard Garfield, has been back to work on the game and man is it fun!  One of the particularly cool new additions for the set is Transform, special two sided cards that are in each new pack, that can transform from one creature to it’s counterpart.  We’ve been playing it this week from the prerelease and it’s the most fun set in a while.

At the end of the day out the over 500 players that entered the tournament 2 members from Team D20 made it to the top 48, with Josiah Choy getting 3rd place and his brother Andy Choy getting 18th.   The top 48 have eared invitations to the national competion, and other members of the team are eyeing the remaining qualifiers to win their way to join them.

Weekly Update: New Official hours, Friday, Sat and Sunday events.

Hi Folks,

A few Quick Updates for the week:
  1. Open today for Early dismissal (2:30), and new hours:  Our Hours have been updated for the school year, and pretty much match the schedule for after school (Family run business and I need to get my kids after school too).  We are going to be running a quick tournament on Wednesdays to give the after school kids something to do.  Format will be Modern and we will play around for a little bit with it.  (I am also going to work on setting up a system so you can register your kid and let me know if I need to see completed homework before they can get started.  I won’t be able to do more then a glance to see completed pages, but I’d be willing to give it a try.) Regular hours are on the site, but they are basically 3:30-8 weekdays, closed Tuesday, early weds, and open late on Friday.  Sat will be 12:30
  2. Friday, Date Night Magic continues at 5:30 (5 for food).  PLEASE RSVP if you want your lads or lasses to have Pizza and a drink at 5.  We had no rsvp’s and then a huge last minute rush, so we didn’t have the pizza.  Also, let me know who is interested in Sat. Date night magic?  We’ve had a fair amount of interest, and if I get enough, we’ll start running it.  (I know the store hours say that we close at 7 that night, but that’s just when we stop letting new people come in.  ADULT DRAFT AT 6-6:30…trying to get it going early so the parents who also play can do so at mostly the same time as the kids.
  3. Saturday Magic:  1 p.m.  Legacy Tournament ($5 entry fee)  AND 5:30, Ben’s Special Birthday Draft: All Foil Alara $22 entry fee ($24 with sleeves).  These packs retail for $11.99 each, so getting three plus possible prize packs is a heck of a deal.  I’m playing in this one.
  4. Sunday Yugioh:  Regular tournament at 1, $5 entry.  Top prize: Wave 1 2011 Collectors Tin., Jr. (13 and under) at 2:30, no fee. (buy $20 worth of Yugioh stuff, and the entry fee is on me.)
Oh, and for the Yugioh players, we have a limited number of the 2011 Wave 1 collectors tins.  They are $29.99 each or both for $53.99
