Magic The Gathering - Guilds of Ravnica Season


Guilds are back and we're inviting you to join us for the Guilds of Ravnica season!

There's plenty of events throughout the season to suit all styles of play - whether you're a veteran player and excited for the new set or you're completely new and looking for a way to start. 

Open House - Saturday 22nd & 23rd September 

This is the place to start your Magic the Gathering journey. Magic Open House is a day especially for new players. Whether you're brand new or a returning player, come along for a demo and meet some of the regulars.

If you already play and are one of our regulars, we invite you to join us and help show the newer players the ropes.

We'll also have giveaways of promotional items throughout the day - think posters, deck boxes and more!

Prerelease - Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th September 

Prerelease is your chance to play with the new set a whole week before its official release!

We have multiple events across the weekend to choose from:

Prerelease with Swiss rounds - You'll be given a Prerelease pack which will contain 6 boosters. Players then build a deck using the cards you've opened and games are played in a Swiss round format - a number of rounds will be played against various opponents. It's a great way to test your deck building & interact with other players.

Prerelease 2HG - This event is great if you want to play with a friend. You'll each be given a Prerelease pack which will contain 6 boosters. You can then use cards from both yours and your partner's packs to build a deck. You'll then play as a team against other teams. Two-Headed Giant sees players partner up and play as one! This event is great if you're new and would like to work with a friend or even a more experienced player.

Check with your local TGS for individual event times - Prerelease

Once a week and/or after 3 consecutive game losses you may choose to purchase another booster to add to your league collection.
