It’s time to mix things up!
Starting today, and continuing through October and beyond, we’re changing up how we deliver our Friday Night Magic experience to you! We’re moving away from our two-box-minimum prize structure towards a more streamlined payout. Along with our Standard and Modern tournaments, we’ll be adding Commander and Casual Magic to the full lineup of available events on Friday Night!
With the release of Ixalan and the loss of Battle for Zendikar, Oath of the Gatewatch, Shadows over Innistrad, and Eldritch Moon from Standard rotation, our tournament structure will be shifting slightly for our Standard event.
Here’s what you can expect, with the changes highlighted in italics!
Start Time: 7:30 PM
Entry Fee: $7
Prize Support: 3 Booster Packs per Player
Maximum Rounds: Five, with a Top Cut. Number of rounds may change based on weekend scheduling of events. The number of rounds will be announced at the beginning of the event, and during registration.
Six Boxes? Really?
So, you may have heard we’re looking to give away six boxes worth of sealed product away for prize support each week. With the prize restructuring detailed above, you the players can make that happen!
At the bare minimum of players needed to fire a sanctioned event, eight, you can expect twenty four packs in the prize pool. At just 12 players the prize pool reaches 36 packs, or One Booster Box. Let’s double that to twenty-four players and we reach our previous amount of prize support, two boxes! Another twelve players brings us to thirty six players and three booster boxes! And it continues to scale beyond there, with no limit set except how many seats we can fit!
Of course, this still includes the two slices of pizza from locally owned Mega’s Pizza, any dollar drink, and a chance to win some sweet promotional items!
The cards will be missed, yes, but just wait until you get a chance to get your hands on the upcoming double sided foil tokens! They are quite something to look at.
Modern will be maintaining its tried and true value-town self. Beginning at 7:45 PM sharp, you can expect a maximum of five swiss rounds before top cut. All $10 Entry Fees will be collected into one massive prize pool to be paid out in store credit at the end of the event. Ten players will play for $100, twenty-four players will play for $240, and so on.
Commander / EDH
Commander officially joins our Friday Night Magic lineup beginning today!
We would highlight all of the new parts in italics, but then the whole section would be italic! Check it out:
Entry Fee: $5
All entrants will receive one booster pack of their choice from any currently standard set, two slices of pizza, and a drink!
Play all night as much as you like, buy yourself some dinner and a booster pack, and have a chance to win some Friday Night Magic promotional cards all for $5! If you and your friends would like to up the ante, for another $5 and Four Players, we’ll throw some additional prize support and a promo on the line for every four man pod you’d like to fire!
Want to just sling some spells with some friends and have a good time without surviving in the competitive environment of the tournament scene? We’ve got you covered there, as well!
A $5 Entry Fee will get you a standard legal booster pack of your choice, two slices of Mega’s Pizza, and a cool drink, and all the Magic you can play on a Friday Night. We have a super cool “play as you go” Casual structure in the works that will encourage playing others and making new friends all while winning more packs with the same price and atmosphere! It isn’t quite ready to roll out yet, but stay tuned to our Facebook page and our website here and you’ll know when it’s ready!
Hopefully that cleared everything up!
But if you have any questions, always feel free to contact us! We can be reached by our Contact Us form on the About page, directly through our Facebook page, by phone, email, and more!
We look forward to seeing you in store!
