What: Two-Headed Giant using the last of our prerelease packs, so 6 packs plus a promo card for EACH of the two player teammates. ($35 at the door, $30 advanced registration.) play three rounds, win a round, win a pack). Two-headed giant is a two player team event, 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.
Who: Who’s it good for? Since everyone is starting from scratch from a new set, this is a great event for all players. We run a very friendly shop, so particularly for the casual events, feel free to ask for and get help in figuring out what to make. Regardless of what happens, you get to keep all your cards and have a day worth of fun.
*Why do we do the prerelease randomly instead of picking them? 3 reasons. Usually the people who are have done enough research to “know” which of the guilds is better then others are the ones who already have an advantage in building decks. 2) All the Guilds have interesting stuff, the prereleases are about having fun exploring the new set. And 3) Lovely Eventbrite decided to take the part of the ticketing site that let people pick their preferences and make it a bonus feature that almost doubles the extra fees they add for the ticketing.
Here’s what you need to get a head/catch up to the game.
