There is no entry fee, but for sealed events players must either provide their own booster packs or purchase them on site ($11 for three packs, $30 for eight packs). The prizes are provided by Wizards, including both the usual FNM foils as well as other promotional cards. We always play a Standard constructed format tournament, which uses cards from the most recent sets, and there is also always an alternate format tournament, which may be either constructed or limited. The alternate formats for upcoming weeks are listed in the event calendar below.
Winter 2016 Weekly Drafts and Draft League
Mondays- 6pm EV1-350.
We run a booster draft weekly at 6pmon Mondays. There is no entry fee, but players must either provide their own booster packs or purchase them on site ($11 for three packs, $4 for a single pack). For prizes, we do a rare and foil re-draft, which means that all rares and foils are pooled at the end of the tournament, and players pick from then in finish order. Players must use sleeves if they desire to use any rare or foil cards in their decks, to protect the cards during play. The draft format as of Jan 1st is 3* BFZ. Event is limited to three rounds of 45 minutes. These drafts are also part of our Draft League, click here to find out more!
Other premier and non-premier tournaments are run throughout the year. Some tournaments are run by the club itself, and others are run by individual club members. Watch the calendar below and/or subscribe to the mailing list to learn more.
