Prerelease

Hey,

This coming weekend at Fun Express will be a special time in gaming, as we once again have the distinguished pleasure of bringing our gamers another fantastic Magic: TG Prerelease Event! Alara Reborn in all its multi-color glory has finally arrived as the latest and final expansion of the incredibly sharded Alara Block. With color combinations that would make any 5C player’s head spontaneously burst, you will have the opportunity to join us at Fun Express this Saturday (4/25) at 12pm (noon) for a phenomenal sealed deck experience! Entry is $25, and each participant will receive 3 Shards of Alara, and 3 Alara Reborn booster packs to build a deck with. Beyond the sealed event, drafts utilizing the new ACR format (Alara, Conflux, Reborn) will be running all day. The first draft, beginning at 2pm, will start shortly after the main sealed event. Another draft will start at the usual Saturday time of 7PM. Entry fees for each of the drafts are $12, and as stated above you will receive one of each the Alara Block boosters to draft with.  From what I’ve seen of the set this is not something to miss out on, and anytime there is new Magic you’ve got to be there. I’ll see you Saturday!

Mourn not Yu-Gi-Oh! players, as Saturday’s got love for the duelists as well. The classic and always fun Yu-Gi-Oh! Advanced Constructed $7 Event will be starting at the usual 4:30pm. With such a vast card pool available to duelists in this format, tournaments such as these are great for testing new archetypes and can become invaluable for players looking to cook up something new.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! – Yu-Gi-Oh! Raging Battle Sneak Peek is going off on May 2nd, 2009 at 12:00PM! Entry is only $20 and includes 5 packs for the sealed deck! An exclusive promo limited to the first 36 players will be awarded plus additional packs, promos, deck boxes, and a playmat will go to the top places and random door prizes! You do not want to miss it! There will be additional packs for drafts if there are boosters left after the initial sneak peek!!!

Anyway, other than the above, there’s not much else to say. New MTG boosters will not be available for sale until the actual release on April 30th, so this weekend is an opportunity to get these new cards a full week in advance!

See you all this weekend!

Signing off,
Colin

Evil Tricks!

Hello Folks,
We changed it up this weekend for both our Yu-Gi-Oh! Box Prize and our Magic: The Gathering Booster Draft! 

As for the box prize we are awarding the new cards from the Crimson Crisis Special Edition boxes in addition to the usual boosters to the top places in the Yugi tournament! The two new promo cards is Necroface, and Goblin Zombie, and there will be some random door prizes of the same cards available as well! You don’t want to miss this fantastic opportunity to grab some of the latest promos from the folks at Konami.

Nicol Bolas is up to his old tricks in the Magic department, and over three different planes collide in our Booster Draft for MTG. Lorwyn-Shadowmoor-Shards of Alara will be the draft format for this weekend!!! There will twice the chance to pull a planeswalker from either Shards or Lorwyn, and the format has an astonishing number cards in draft since each one is base set! It will definitely be interesting.

This weekend schedule…

Saturday –
4:30PM Yu-Gi-Oh! Crimson Crisis Spec. Ed. Pack Prize - $15

7:00PM Magic: The Gathering Lorwyn-Shadowmoor-Shards of Alara Booster Draft - $12

Prerelease in just two weeks! Alara Reborn is going to be a multicolored set with all the craziness you have come to expect from the Shards Block! The prerelease main event starts at 12:00PM on April 25th, 2009, and there will be a huge side event 7:00PM in case you miss the first one!!!

Check the website starting Monday when all the information will be available.

That will do it for this week, and remember to stay away from the evil claws!!! See you here this weekend.

Problem with Divine v. Demon Decks

E-mail Print PDF

There was a problem in the actual decks coming here this weekend. Wizards of the Coast only shipped 75% of their orders for the most recent duel deck and it is sold out at the factory. The bad news, there will be no drawing today. The good news is that I managed to snag some of the last decks around, and will be giving the deck away sometime next week.

So, much for trying to promote this drawing today. How did I know something like this is going to happen.

Anyway, I apologize to anyone who logged on today to see the drawing. But it was out of my control.

See you here this weekend or online LIVE next week. I will announce the date on Monday with all the new Prerelease information.
