Magic the Gathering Prerelease in April
Rogues Gallery will be holding two prerelease events for Magic: The Gathering’s new set, Amonkhet, on Sunday, April 23rd! We recommend that you call or email ahead to preregister, because we have limited space and tend to fill up well before the day of the event itself. We have room for 16 players in the first event, beginning at noon, and 16 players in the second event, beginning at 4:00 PM. If space allows, we are happy to allow players to play in both prerelease tournaments… players will have to buy-in to both tournaments, you cannot carry over cards or decks from the first prerelease into the second. In addition, of late we’ve had folks sign up and not show up, so if you don’t get in on your preferred time, you are welcome to sign up as an alternate or to come in on the day and try to get available spaces.
Registration will begin at noon on April 23rd. We’ll begin the first event at 12:30 with 30 minutes to construct your decks, and the pre-release will run 3 rounds from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM or so. Please note that if you are preregistered, you must arrive by 12:15 to claim your spot or it will be opened up for walk-ins.
The second tournament will begin registration at 4:00, and the tournament will start as close to 4 PM as we can manage, with 30 minutes to construct your decks. Please note for those preregistered, you must arrive by 4:00 to claim your spot or it will be opened up for walk-ins.
Prerelease packs will be $25.99 plus tax. You must buy a pack for each tournament you enter.
We will allow walk-ins for both tournaments if the space is not filled, but we encourage preregistration, as we generally fill up fairly quickly. In addition, because there are two events, and because the second event may run later than our usual closing time, we won’t be able to offer trading or casual place space after the tournaments end.
Prize support will be in the form of Amonkhet boosters. We award boosters for each round you win. The remainder are divided up into first, second and third prizes.
In addition to the main prerelease tournament events, if space allows, we will offer open dueling, allowing any player who wants to play to purchase Amonkhet Planeswalker Decks to play against each other, as well as prerelease tournament players who are between matches.
