Core Set 2019 Prerelease!
July 7th-8th

Give your magic collection a Core!!!
Invite your friends!

Prereleases are a celebration of a new Magic set. They are a series of events run over one huge weekend! Each event runs for about 4 hours.
They’re a fun, casual, low-commitment way to play with a bunch of like-minded Magic players, and get a heap of new cards!

Every player gets a prerelease pack, plus an extra 2 Core Set 2019 Packs for participation!

Each prerelease pack contains:

  • 6 boosters of Core Set 2019
  • A stamped promo card, which could be any rare or mythic rare from the set!
  • Spindown life counter

You’ll build a deck from those cards. You’re on an even playing field with everyone else, making a deck from your prerelease pack instead of using one brought from home.

Build a 40 card minimum deck using about 23 of the cards from the prerelease pack and roughly 17 basic lands, borrowed from the store.

The event runs for three 45 minute rounds, each being a best of three games against someone who has won as many rounds as you.

To support a casual Prerelease environment, every player gets 2 boosters for participation, so you can play stress-free matches, experimenting with new cards without fear of failure.

As a little extra incentive for wins we’re also adding a random pick from our prize wall per match win. There’s lucky-dip rares, snacks, drinks, boosters and a few grand prizes to be won.
These aren’t coming out of any kind of total prize pool, they’re an extra thing we’re adding on top of the participation boosters to give a sense of achievement to well earned victories.

Preregister by 8pm Wednesday 4th July
to guarantee your place!

Plus, there are preregistration discounts on 6-Event tickets, Core Set 2019 Boxes, and Core Set 2019 Bundles!

Two-Headed Giant Events – (What’s that?)

Bring a friend and play together as a team!

In 2HG both players get a prerelease pack, then combine them into one big stack to build two decks from.
All the prizes listed above are per player, so both players get 2 boosters of Core Set 2019 for participation and a pick from the prizes wall for each match win.

To preregister for Two-Headed Giant, BOTH HEADS must preregister! It doesn’t have to be at the same time, but you both need to do it so you’re not left headless.
