===== SCHEDULE OF EVENTS =====

Scheduled tournaments have limited seating!
There are 24 seats guaranteed for each scheduled tournament. Tickets are on sale starting Friday, Jan 27. Preregister if you want a guaranteed spot. We will sell additional entries before each tournament starts if there are seats available.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3

On-demand tournament queues between 6:00p and 10:00p (final tournament
must fire by 10:00p) – see below

6:00p-Standard Tournament-$5

Just your standard Standard.

8:00p-Frontier Tournament-$5

Frontier is a non-rotating format including every set from Magic 2015 onward. (Like Modern format, but newer and more accessible.) For more info visit whatsinfrontier.com.

10:00p-Cascade Draft I: Kaladesh block-$15

In a cascading draft, you keep the same deck across all three drafts, and add the newly drafted cards to an ongoing card pool-meaning you’ll end with a large pool to build from if you play in all three.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 4

On-demand tournament queues between 11:00a and 9:00p (final tournament must fire by 9:00p) – see below

11:00a-Eternal Masters Draft-$30

Eternal Masters is a set containing reprints of Legacy-legal cards
spanning the history of Magic, which makes for interesting drafts.

1:00p-Mini-Masters Tournament-$5
Take a pack of Aether Revolt. Shuffle in three of each basic land. That’s your deck. If you win a round, you get a pack to add to your deck. Play three rounds. Keep the cards at the end.

3:00p-Commander Tournament-$5

Commander is a multiplayer constructed format in which you select one Legendary creature to lead your deck, then build a 100-card deck around that creature’s colors, using only one copy of each card, which leads to more card variation and more challenging deckbuilding. More info on building Commander decks can be found online.

5:00p-Cascade Draft II-Shadows Over Innistrad block-$15

See Cascade Draft I on Friday for details.

7:00p-Modern Tournament-$7

Modern is a constructed format including sets from Mirrodin and onward. Because this format has a huge number of cards to choose from, Modern decks can be very powerful.

9:00p-Conspiracy Draft-$15

The Conspiracy sets were designed specifically for drafting. Cards in Conspiracy instruct you to take special actions as you draft and have other draft-specific features and rules.

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 5

On-demand tournament queues between 1:00p and 6:00p (final tournament must fire by 6:00p) – see below

1:00p-Chaos Draft-$15 +

Players choose one pack to buy as part of their entry. The other two packs will be randomly drawn from a bag of packs spanning every set we have in stock (excluding Modern Masters 2).
Cost: $15 + cost of the one pack of the player’s choice.

3:00p-Random Planechase (Brick Sealed)-$15

Build a deck from a semi-random brick of cards and play a three-round tournament. The catch: You’ll be on a different plane every time we flip a random Planechase card at your table. At the end of the tournament, we’re giving away the box of Planechase Anthology used in the tournament in addition to other prizes.
5:00p-Cascade Draft III-Battle for Zendikar block-$15

See Cascade Draft I on Friday for details.

7:00p-Tribal Deck Tournament-$5

All but 4 creatures in your deck must share a creature type. Legacy-legal cards allowed.

===== ON-DEMAND SIT-N-GO TOURNAMENTS ALL WEEKEND =====

Join the queue for whatever you’d like to play: Booster Draft, Standard,
Frontier, Modern, Sealed, or Commander. We’ll run a tournament as soon as
we have 8 players.
On-Demand tournaments are single-elimination.
Booster drafts-$15 entry-1st place: 5 packs; 2nd: 3 packs, 3rd & 4th: 2
packs each
Constructed formats-$15 entry-Winner gets a booster box

===== WHAT THE HECK IS SMAGIC? =====

It’s a casual Smash-Up/Magic mash-up! Choose two of our 30-card mono-color
tribal decks (Green Elves, Red Goblins, Black Zombies, etc), shuffle them
together to form your 60-card deck, then play a multiplayer game with
three other players. Smagic is run like an on-demand tournament with free
entry and the winner getting a free pack.

WIN A BOX OF ETERNAL MASTERS

Every entry into an event* gets you a raffle ticket.
Every $10** spent on Magic products over the weekend*** gets you a raffle ticket.
Each of those tickets is a chance to win a box of Eternal Masters (MSRP $239.76).
Drawing takes place after 6 p.m. on Feb 5. You do not need to be present to win.

*On-demand tournaments and Smagic games are included in the raffle.
**Ten dollars before tax. Tournament entry fees do not count. ***”Over the weekend” means between 10:00 a.m. on Friday, Feb 3 and 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, Feb 5. Must be purchased at the register in the game room.

Shieldmaiden Sunday

We see women all of the time around here, but they don’t always see each other. And so, join us for Shieldmaiden Sundays. We’re open 12-6 on Sundays and during that time, if you’re a lady nerd seeking to hang out with other lady nerds to chat comics and cosplay, play casual magic or table top games, or start an RPG campaign, this is your day.

Other events in the game room will proceed as normal, under our every day, general game room guidelines. Our intent is to provide the common time and space for women who have asked about how to find other female members of the community. In the event of a special, large event that occupies the game room for the day it will be on the store calendar and anyone on our staff will be happy to help you reserve space on another night if you wish.

Thursday Night HeroClix start at 6pm each week

Each week, they feature a local comic book artist’s wit and works, review the new books that hit the stands that day, meet a superhero or two, bring up a few of the country’s best comedians, and create a safe and welcoming space for anyone who likes comic books or is interested in learning about them to come hang, laugh, and enjoy themselves.
It’s TOTALLY FREE and always will be!

Tim
Welcome back to Tim’s corner. 
Hello from Tim’s corner, Happy New Year!!!! As in year’s past my New Years resolution is to read more comic books. There’s so many out there that I want to read. Plus it’s an easier resolution than some others I won’t mention. I have put a bunch of comics in our drawers in the last few weeks including: Action Vol1, Alpha Flight, Avengers vol1, Daredevil Vol1, Flash Vol1, Ren & Stimpy, Uncanny Xmen, Fantastic Four Vol1, Spawn, Star Wars, Switchblade, Astounding Wolfman, Astro City, Crisis on Infinite Earths, Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme (Loved the movie!), Farscape, Superman Vol1, Batman Vol1, Archie Giant Series, Thor Vol1&2, and Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen. Time to read some comics…
