MTG War of the Spark Prereleases – Saturday, April 27th and Sunday, April 28th

April 9th, 2019

Alternate Universes is hosting Magic: the Gathering War of the Spark prerelease tournaments on Saturday, April 27th and Sunday, April 28th at all AU stores! For each participating player we are putting four booster packs in the prize pool! And we will once again have free pizza at all midnight prereleases!

****Note that the times of our Blue Bell prereleases have changed! Please check out the new times below!****

These changes are due to a conflicting event scheduled by Konami that is beyond our control.

Format

The format for all prerelease tournaments is Sealed Deck, including 2-Headed Giant tournaments. Each player gets a War of the Spark Prerelease Kit to build their deck!

All tournaments are 3 rounds regardless of the number of players! Prizes will be awarded based on record after the final round (see below for prize structures).

Entry

Entry fee is $30 if you preregister, or $35 at the door.
If you preregister for two events then the total entry fee is $55!
Preregister for three or more events and the entry fee for each event is $25!

All pre-registrations must be made in-store and paid in advance. Preregistration ends Friday, April 27th, at 6:00 PM

Two Headed Giant entry is $60 per team. Each team gets two War of the Spark Prerelease Kits to build their decks (one Prerelease Kit per player).
