We will open at 9AM on Friday November 29th, and our weekend of special events start soon afterwards. Here is the schedule:

Friday 11/29 10AM – $10 Return to Ravnica Block Draft! Thats right, we jump back in time one block and revisit one of Magic’s most popular blocks with a booster draft. Each player will receive 1 pack each of Return to Ravnica, Gatecrash, and Dragon’s Maze. One additional pack will be placed into the prize pool, with prizes going to the top half of the field.

Friday 11/29 2 PM – Backdraft! One of our favorite casual booster draft formats returns for the holidays. Each player will supply 3 Magic booster packs of their choice. Got an Urza’s Saga pack sitting around? Bring it. Enjoyed Invasion? Bring it. Want to see how M13 works in this format? Bring it. Any three 15 card booster packs will work. So buy them from us, or bring your own. But wait, the crazy interaction has just begun. Unlike a normal booster draft, your task in a Backdraft is to attempt to draft the WORST deck possible. Sounds easy? Just what do you do with that 15th pick Griselbrand or Tolarian Academy? And then finally, once you’re done drafting that terrible pile of cards, you will swap decks with another player. NOW its your job to build a winning deck with all that trash! GREAT FUN. Don’t miss it. $5 entry fee. Draft winner and player that drafted the deck will split the prize pool in store credit.

Saturday 11/30 6 PM – Magic “Anything Goes” Tournament! This is the ULTIMATE casual Magic format. You will build a minimum 60 card deck. Sideboard is allowed. ALL cards are legal except the following:

Any Manual Dexterity Cards
Any Ante Cards
Any Gold Border Cards

Yep, Unglued and Unhinged cards are legal and there are no restricted cards. Got 4 Black Lotus? Play’em. Matches are best 2 of 3. Entry fee is $10. First place wins a FTV-20! Additional prizes based on attendance.

All our other usual weekend events will go on as scheduled. Friday Night Magic, Pokemon, YuGiOh, and D & D.

So stop in, get a great deal on some gaming items, and play in one of our fun events. Gobble Gobble from DMIG!
