Friday Night Magic
We play Friday Night Magic (FNM) every Friday evening at 6 PM.
FNM Room Bookings are normally MC 2035
There is no entry fee, but for sealed events players must either provide their own booster packs or purchase them on site ($12 for three packs, $23 for six packs, $30 for 8 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.
Spring 2016 Weekly Drafts and Draft League
Wednesdays- 6pm MC 2034.
We run a booster draft weekly at 6pm on Mondays. There is no entry fee, but players must either provide their own booster packs or purchase them on site ($12 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 May 1st is 3* SOI. Event is limited to three rounds of 45 minutes. These drafts are also part of our Draft League, click here to find out more!
Spring 2016 Standard Pauper
**NEW**! Wednesdays- 6pm MC 2034
Starting this term we will be running Standard Pauper at the same day and time as the drafts. Tournament is $4 per person with one pack in the prize pool per player. Pauper means only commons are allowed in decks. (NOTE: Rolling Thunder, while printed at common in a previous set, is not common in the current standard rotation and thus not legal in standard pauper) The last pauper event of every month will be Legacy pauper!
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.
