July 16th-17th – Preregister now!
Come to Games Laboratory for the largest prerelease around!
Meet old friends, and make new ones!
Play with new cards, and win boosters!
Invite your friends on Facebook to join in on the action!
Prereleases are celebrations of the upcoming release of a new Magic set. They are a series of events run over one huge weekend! Each event runs for about 5 hours.
They’re a fun, casual way to try out and get a whole bunch of new cards and meet new people. Prereleases are the only way to get hold of the cards from the new set before the official sale date!
Each player gets a prerelease pack of six boosters worth of stuff to build a deck out of. Everyone’s on an even playing field, building decks from just the cards in your prerelease pack.
The prerelease packs contains:
- 4 Eldritch Moon boosters
- 2 Shadows Over Innistrad boosters
- A stamped promo card, which could be any rare or mythic rare from the set! (inlcuding the planeswalkers)
- Spindown life counter
- Double-sided foil zombie token!
The event runs for four rounds, each round being the best of three games against someone who has won as many rounds as you. Each round you win gets you two boosters as a prize!!
Two Headed-Giant (2HG)
For this prerelease both the Saturday 3:30pm and Sunday 10am events are 2HG!
Online decklist submission now open.
$500+ GPT Sydney, win some cash and some byes, get practice for the WMCQ the Sunday after!
You can edit your decklist up until the start of the event with any last minute changes.
Also, don’t forget to preregister for the WMCQ!
Eternal Masters preorders are open in store!
It’s $400 for a 24 pack box, which is conveniently an 8 player draft worth.
In an effort to give our regulars an opportunity to get their hands on this extremely limited print run product (it seems there will be significantly less than Modern Masters), we’re limiting preorders to in store only, and just for store pickup.
Many people have told us they think this will sell out on preorder alone, so do it now if you want to lock in a box for yourself.
Every pack has a foil, and Force of Will and Wasteland are already confirmed in!
It’s going to be stuffed with a bunch more eternal staples, more preview cards coming soon!
Wizards have said they’re designing it to be a cool and wacky draft format, it’s available June 10th!
Free Comic Book Day – May 7th
With Free Comic Book Day coming up this Saturday we thought we’d once again share a few of our favourite comics with you! If you’re keen for more tips here’s our offering from last year.
In conjunction with the amazing All Star Comics we’re offering a special Friday Night Magic event on the eve of Free Comic Book Day – Saturday May 7th.
Play in any of our three Friday Night Magic events for the chance to win a bunch of awesome comics as door prizes donated by All Star Comics!
Grab a flyer from us with a handy map to All Star Comics, and take it in with you for discounts!
All Star Comics won the Spirit of Comics Retailer Award in 2014, essentially the “Best Comic Store in the World” award, and for good reason. They’re knowledgeably, friendly, and have two floors worth of new and old comics. We all shop there.

Dion – Hellboy: Strange Places
Cristobal – Bone
