LOL Chicago Comedy Magic Draft!

February 9, 2014 @ 4:00 pm - 10:00 pm

| $20

Over the past year it’s come to our attention that a lot of folks in the Chicago comedy community enjoy the occasional MtG games, so we thought we’d do something about it – bring everyone together and host an awesome draft tournament!

The top prize here will be a whole booster box. We’re encouraging people to bring their friends and make a run for the box together! This is all about being social and having fun, after all.

TECHNICAL INFO: Play format: Theros standard draft. Every player gets two packs of Theros and one pack of Born of the Gods to draft. In case you haven’t drafted before, each player at his or her table opens a pack, takes one card from it, and then passes the pack to the next person down the line. At the end of the draft, you have 42 cards from which to build a minimum 40-card deck.

Tournament style: Players will be paired off in best 2-out-of-3 matches. The tournament will be single-elimination, meaning if you lose a match you’re out and the last one standing takes the grand prize. However, all the players cut after the first round will have the option to enter a free side game for additional prizes.

Entry fee: $20 covers your draft packs and prize support Prizes: Overall winner receives a box of booster packs. Players with top records in both the main and side tournaments will also receive a number of packs to be determined later.

Registration’s capped at 32 so buy your tickets soon!

Doors open at 3. Walk-ins welcome (if we don’t sell out). Tournament begins at 4.
