Meet-Up Sessions downstairs@lab

  • Want to try out a new board game and your mates keep bailing on you?
  • Bored after work and don’t really want to go home yet?
  • Or you simply want to meet new people and just have a good time?

Well, join us every Wednesday from 6pm onwards downstairs@lab. We want to see more people playing games and we know it is hard to approach groups when you really want to join in. So, we’ve reserved a table for anyone to have a sit wait for a few players and start jamming dem games!

If you have any questions asked our friendly staff at the bar and they’ll sort you out 🙂

Quick Drafts join FNM!

We have modified our FNM 7pm Speed Drafts to be BestOfOne also known as Quick Drafts!

Here is the rundown of the event:

  • You will have 30 minutes to draft followed by 10 minutes to deck construct
  • Matches are Best of One, meaning the first one to win a game wins the round
  • Players get a Free Mulligan
  • You will still play 3 Rounds with 40 minutes per round
  • You will get a pack per win and of course, keep everything you draft

Make the leap from Magic Arena to Paper this Friday!

If you have any questions let us know 🙂
