Yet More Magic! FNM Afterparty + ‘Monday Night Magic’ + Saturday Draft Clinic!

I promise that I’ll start talking about other things than Magic soon… but lots of cool things happening this weekend in the shop for Magic: the Gathering tonight, Saturday and Monday!

First, we have our usual Friday Night Magic Afterparty tonight at 9:30 p.m. – it’ll be booster draft format as usual, and, yes, we’ll be drafting Zendikar! We’ll have some fun giveaways, such as playmats, deck boxes and a carrying case, as well as the usual prize support of packs (6 to firs t place, 4 to second place, and one each to third and fourth.) Price is $15 (includes sales tax).

Furthermore, tomorrow, we’re holding a special booster draft ‘clinic’ at 5 p.m. hosted by our house M:tG expert, Kevin Grigsby. He’ll introduce the concepts and rules behind the booster draft format, and coach players new to the game and to the format on how to draft effectively. The set used for this draft will be from the Alara set block, and will only be $10! In addition, each participating player will receive at least one extra pack, with three additional going to the first place winner and one additional to second place. So for just $10, you’re getting at least four packs of Magic, normally $16!

This Monday will begin our first Monday night constructed event, tentatively titled ‘Monday Night Magic’. We’ll be using Standard format rules (cards from the Alara block, Magic 2010, and Zendikar are legal), and the entry fee will be $5. The prize for winning? It’ll be the entry fee pool in store credit PLUS 20 percent!

As an additional note… we’re already very, very close to being able to host ‘formal’ Friday Night Magic in the store! Most likely, we’ll be ready to fire it up in November to start giving everyone in town two chances to pick up FNM unique promotional cards every week! I want to thank all the Magic players who have been coming out in force to make this possible – I’m so excited to be able to provide our M:tG gang with the best playing experience possible, and I love giving out free stuff too!
