Magic the Gathering: Dominaria Pre-Release Weekend

About Magic the Gathering: Dominaria Pre-Release Weekend

These events are a favourite with new, casual and competitive players alike as you don't need to bring a deck and you will be playing with cards a week before the full release day.

Two of the PreReleases are a little more unusual than the others: We have our Midnight PreRelease that kicks of a minute past midnight on Saturday morning with registration on Firday at 11:30pm.
...and we have our Pub-Release which takes place on Sunday evening in the Royal Scott pub across the road from the store so you can enjoy a cheeky drink while you play!

Saturday 21st & Sunday 22nd April

Event 1 – Friday MIDNIGHT. Registration is from 11pm for a 12am start

Event 2 – Saturday morning. Registration is from 10am for a 10.30am start

HOW IT WORKS

Pre-releases are casual competition days for all ability levels. Whether seasoned pro looking for get their hands on the new cards before everyone else, or beginner with a basic understanding of the rules, there’s something for everyone at a pre-release event.

All you need to bring is yourself! We even provide free deck sleeves with your entry fee!

From your sealed boxes, in which you receive 6 boosters, you will create a deck of 40 cards minimum deck then play other participating players in a Swiss style tournament.

This event will take place with regular rules enforcement, including the Vancouver Mulligan Rule.
