Crack open the new magic set at midnight at Rochester’s original midnight Pre-Release event!
Magic Pre-releases are the first opportunity for players to get their hands on a new Magic set one week before the set officially releases and goes on sale!
WHAT HAPPENS AT A PRE-RELEASE?
You’ll experience the thrill of opening new cards for the first time, at an event filled with other Magic players who enjoy the game just as much as you. Everything you’ll need to play will be provided as part of your entry fee – you simply show up and play!
You’ll build a 40-card minimum deck using the contents of a Prerelease pack. This play format is called “Sealed Deck.”
After you build your deck, you’ll be randomly paired with another player for a best-two-of-three match. Each round, you’ll report who won and be paired up with a new player. If you do well, you may get additional booster packs as prizes!
Prizes: Finish with a record of 3-0 and get 6 booster packs!
Finish with a record of 2-1 and get 3 booster packs!
Win or lose, you get to keep all of the cards you opened in your prerelease pack, roughly the equivalent of getting 6 packs of the new set!
You’ll also walk away with a special promo card and a set specific spin down life counter.
