Ravnica Allegiance Events are the Open House on January 12th, the Prerelease events on January 19th and 20th, and the Draft Weekend on the 26th and 27th. You're not going to want to miss the second installment of one of the best series of Magic: The Gathering sets in YEARS!
Ravnica Allegiance Open House
January 12th from 12 to 4PM
Come in, meet some of our community members, and play some magic! At 1PM we'll order in some pizzas as a special thank you for participating.
For brand new players:
We'll have welcome decks to teach new players! Get a free deck to start your MTG collection, as well as the cool Rakdos Firewheeler full art promo!
For our existing players:
Come in and jam some games in your favorite format. Commander, Modern, Standard, whatever strikes your fancy. If you help a new player to learn we'll give you a Rakdos Firewheeler promo. If there are enough promos to go around, we'll give you a promo just for showing up!
Ravnica Allegiance Prerelease Events
January 19th and 20th
There are three ways to participate in our Ravnica Allegiance Prerelease events. You can join one of our scheduled events, build a deck and play in a swiss-rounds tournament, you can participate in one of our drop in and play events, or you can simply buy a box of Ravnica Allegiance while the event is going on (while supplies last of course).
All of our Scheduled Events on Saturday are Sealed events, which means you get a Prerelease Pack themed with a specific guild to build a 40 card deck. We will provide basic lands, but everything else MUST come from inside this pack. Each time slot will have an equal number of each guild pack available, and they will be distributed based on the order players have registered, so it pays to register early!
All of our Scheduled Events on Sunday are Two-Headed Giant events. In Two-Headed Giant, both players on a team will build a 40 card minimum deck using their prerelease box and then participate in a swiss tournament as a team with a shared life total and plot out their moves together. Players on the same team can use cards from each other’s prerelease box. Don’t have a partner? No problem! Just show up and we’ll match you with someone.
Each Prerelease pack comes with 5 packs of Ravnica Allegiance, a special pack seeded with cards from the guild, a themed insert, and a spindown die to use as a life tracker.
Every participant who completes the scheduled event will get two boosters of Ravnica Allegiance as part of their prize pool. $7.50 of each player's entry fee will be added to a Store Credit Prize Pool. Store Credit will be awarded to 50% of the players (Top players plus one random player in the bottom). At 40 players, 1st prize is more than $100 in store credit, at 30 its close to $80, at 20 it's over $50 for first prize.
If you're a Magic: The Gathering die-hard player and you think you're up for the challenge, we have a special event for you: The IRONMAN program.
If you register for the IRONMAN program, you are automatically enrolled in all of our Saturday and Sunday scheduled events. If you can participate in all six events, and come out with a better record than any of the other IRONMAN participants, then we'll award you with a FREE BOOSTER BOX of Ravnica Allegiance!
If you fail to reach this goal, then as a thank you for dedicating your whole weekend to our store we'll sell you one booster box of Ravnica Allegiance for the deeply discounted prices of $86.99.
SIDE EVENTS AND OTHER WAYS TO PARTICIPATE
If you don't have time to dedicate to a 6-hour time slot for one of our main events, we have several other ways you can get your hands on Ravnica Allegiance products during our Prerelease events.
During our prerelease events, you’ll be able to buy a booster box of Ravnica Allegiance and take it home with you a week before the official release date (while supplies last!).
Our Prerelease Party event is where you pick up a Prerelease Pack for $30 and build a 40 card minimum deck, just like you would during one of our normal Prerelease events. Then you can play with others who are participating in the Prerelease party event or even other players who are between rounds in the main Prerelease events! Limit one per DCI number.
Like the idea of the Prerelease Party event, but don’t want to build a deck yourself? Register for Open Dueling and get a Planeswalker deck from the new set for $14.99 + tax, open it up, and play with other players who are here during the prerelease weekend! There’s even a couple of booster packs from the new set included in each planeswalker deck so you can open some booster packs and tailor the deck to your own individual playing style. Limit one per DCI number.
Don’t forget that we’ll also be having our breakfast potluck event at 11AM on Sunday before our first Prerelease event of the day! Bring your favorite breakfast dish to share with everyone. This event is very casual and we have a tradition of showing up in our PJs for this one.
