Ravnica Allegiance Sealed League
Jan 25 – Feb 22 all-day
Ravnica Allegiance Sealed League @ Games laboratory | Melbourne | Victoria | Australia

Ravnica Allegiance Sealed League!
It’s a fun, casual way to play a bunch of Magic, running for 4 weeks (plus an extra Friday in the last week to wrap up).

Entry is $40 and you get a deckbox. Build a 40 card minimum sealed deck from 6 x Ravnica Allegiance Boosters.

Each week after the first you can buy a Ravnica Allegiance booster to add to your pool, you can rebuild your deck as much as you like, It’s never too late to join.

You can leave your deck here so it’s always ready to play! You can play your matches any time, however Wednesday evenings and Friday afternoons will be “League Days“. If you are looking for matches, this is a chance to come along and find people! Also, if you show up in either of those days we will give you a cool FNM promo from previous seasons!

You’re welcome to use the Facebook event to try and arrange matches too!

The first 5 matches you play each week are scored towards your league count, with prizes at the end based on participation.
You can’t play the same person more than twice in a week to add to your score.

For this league you will also be randomly placed in one of the five guilds of Azorius, Rakdos, Gruul, Simic, and Orzhov . This means that for every match you win you will be able to placed a coloured pin on our Guilds Board! If you place your pin on your guilds banner it will count as +1 point for your guild, however if you place it on another guild it will counts a -1 point for them.

You play members of any guild, even you own

Everyone who completes all their matches and has added all their boosters gets 2 packs as a prize!

Plus members of the Guild with the most points will get and extra pack each and some cool promos!!!

Ask for more details in store.

We run Introduction to D&D tables, starting fairly regularly check our Event Booking for details.

These events are an introduction to 5th Edition and are ideal for anyone who has little or no experience of Dungeons & Dragons (or Role Playing Games in general), or for folks who have not played in quite a while and want a refresher before they jump in.

There’s also heaps of other self organised groups playing ongoing adventures!

Check out details on our Dungeons and Dragons page!

Then, if you’ve got questions, ask away in our Games Laboratory Roleplaying Games Facebook group.

Support us in keeping the lights on and rent paid by contributing something to the store when you’re in.
Buy some drinks or snacks here, pick up the last D&D book you’re missing, or buy a few dice to donate to your DM. It all helps 😀
