DRAGON’S MAZE PRERELEASE
FULL INFO – UPDATED
Preregistration is going on now for all of our Dragon’s Maze events (except the 2HG which will start mid-week when we can get a better picture of the weather situation for the weekend).
No prepayment is required to hold a spot, and you may sign up for multiple flights if you wish. We only ask that you please DO NOT sign up for flights unless you are certain that you will attend.
We do suggest that you do sign up in advance since there are 10 guilds available (more on that in a minute). This is once again going to use the Guild Packs, and it might be the last time for something like this, so do not miss out. Also, there will be a group participation event with prizes for the winning group.
GUNSLINGER – BRIAN KIBLER
On Saturday, from about 10am to 6pm, Brian Kibler, our local pro-player extraordinaire will be at the store gunslinging. He will be defending his packs as usual from any and all challengers, prerelease deck vs prerelease deck. As before, it is free to challenge him, and if you win you will get one of his boosters, as well as bragging rights for a while. If you tried before and did not succeed, now is your chance to even the score. If you happened to win one from him one a prior occasion, then now is the chance to prove that it was more than just dumb luck. Bring it on!
This time around, there will be a guild pack for each one of the 10 guilds. Inside, it will contain 4 Dragon’s Maze boosters, 1 Guild Pack of the guild you have chosen, and then one Secret Ally guild pack that is not known until the pack is opened. The secret ally pack can by any guild that shares one color with your chosen guild. With this you will also receive the alternate art prerelease card, Maze’s End, but you cannot use it during the event.
THE IMPLICIT MAZE – Run during the Midnight event and the noon events on both Saturday and Sunday
If you had not heard, there will also be a challenge event. When you pick your guild pack, you will be representing your guild in a community challenge, The Implicit Maze. Basically, every time your guild wins a match, markers are moved on a community maze (I have this at the store), and whichever guild reaches the finish point first will win a prize for each of its supporting players. All players who want to participate will receive an alternate art foil plains with a prerelease date imprint on them…they’re actually kinda cool. They will also receive a card for points and other things on your Planeswalker accounts, the winning guild receiving different cards that have more stuff on them, obviously. As is stated above, this will be run 3 times, at all flights with a ‘12’ in their time (midnight and noon events)
Please note that once you choose your guild, if we run out of spaces for other guilds you will not be able to switch with us. HOWEVER, we will allow players to trade guilds with each other prior to receiving their pack for deck construction. Once players receive their guild pack and are seated, no trading will be allowed.
All events are Swiss format. Prizes are as always based upon 2 packs per entrant into the prize pool. Times for flights are:
