Casual Commander

 Cost: 1 Event Voucher

Casual games of Commander, where the goal is for everyone to have a good time.

Prize: Everyone receives the same number of Prize Tix for participating.

 

Competitive Commander

 Cost: 1 Event Voucher 

Competitive games of Commander, where everybody brings their best deck and tightest play.

Prize: The winner receives more Prize Tix.

 

Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur's Gate Draft

 Cost: 2 Event Vouchers 

 Draft the unique experience that is a Commander Legends set. Draft in pods of 8 (typical so far) but with packs of 20 cards and each time you would 'pick' you take two cards. 

Each pack will contain 2 Legendary creatures, so you'll have plenty of opportunity to choose the creature you want for your 60 card Commander deck (also different).

The 8 players will then be split into two pods of 4 for an exciting battle for the ages.

Prize: Participation Tix for everyone plus Tix for the pod winners

 

Mystery Booster Sealed (2019 Convention Edition)

Book in advance to guarantee your place. There are limited spaces

 Cost: 4 Event Vouchers if spaces available on the day.

Runs on Saturday and Sunday

Each player receives 6 Mystery Booster packs from which they build their 40 card deck to take on the competition.

There will be 5 rounds to determine who is the greatest Mystery Booster Sealed competitior!

Prize: Participation Tix for everyone plus Tix for every win

 

Planechase Global

 Cost: 1 Event Voucher 

 This is a unique opportunity to experience Planechase in a Commander game.

The players will be split into random pods but all pods in the room will be fighting on the same plane as each other.

Experience the highs, and lows, of each player's struggle for victory as the whim of fate changes the plane, and the rules of the game periodically.

Not to be missed!

Prize: Everyone receives the same number of Prize Tix for participating

 

Tribal

  Cost: 1 Event Voucher

 Everybody has a tribe they favour in MTG whether it's the popular ones like Elves or Merfolk or the downright obscure such as Cephalids or Crabs!

This is your opportunity to prove that your tribe is the best, or at least the most fun!

EDH Tribal Rules

Prize: Everyone receives the same number of Prize Tix for participating

  

Grand Melee

  Cost: 1 Event Voucher

This is a normal game of Commander, on a much grander scale!

In this format you will experience a massively-multiplayer Commander game with a theoretical limitless number of players.

Each player operates within a 'zone of influence' that limits their interaction to the players either side of them, until someone gets knocked out!

Play continues until just one combatant is left standing: the Grand Melee Champion!

Prize: Everyone receives the same number of Prize Tix for participating plus a little extra something for the last Magician standing

 

Magic Quiz

Cost: 1 Event Voucher Per Person

 Put your knowledge to the test in this wide-ranging, Pub-style quiz. 

Enter as a team and win Tix for your obscure MTG trivia!

Four players per team maximum

Prize: Everyone receives the same number of Prize Tix for participating and members of the most knowledgeable team will receive a little extra something
