So put away those bombs, and high-value mythics and scrape together a deck of commons this weekend!


Hero’s Rewards Updated

heros-reward-handOur Hero’s Reward program for Magic: the Gathering is one of our most successful promotions ever.  For those that aren’t familiar we give out special Hero’s Reward cards as promotional giveaways, prizes, and rewards at our various Magic: the Gathering events.  You can trade in those hero’s reward for a variety of different prizes, each one requiring a certain number of Hero’s Rewards as payment.

With each block we update the look and style of our Hero’s Rewards, and we are proud to introduce to you our new Kaladesh-Themed Hero’s Reward set!  With our new Kaladesh look we have, in my opinion, our nicest looking Hero’s Reward card yet.  We also have one change to our reward options:

We replaced the ‘Spend 3 Hero’s Rewards to get a discount on a Booster Box’ option (by far our least popular) with a new ‘Spend 1 Hero’s Reward to get a Free Chip, Candy, Pop, or Water –or– Spend 2 Hero’s Rewards to get a Free Energy Drink or Juice.’  We hope that this new option will appeal to the many players that we have, and will provide another easy option while you hang out in the shop.

MTG: Kaladesh Prerelease Weekend

We will be celebrating the release of the amazing new Magic: the Gathering set: Kaladesh – with an entire weekend of prerelease fun!

Entry Fee: $39.00 ($35.00 for Stronghold Members) or hand in 9 Hero’s Reward Cards

You Get: Everyone gets a Prerelease pack. All participants get a FREE Hero’s Reward Card for each event they participate in. Additionally there will be door prizes, snacks, and more fun.

Prizes: We will add two MTG Kaladesh booster packs in to the prize pool per participant. Prizes will be distributed in one of two different ways:

Some tournaments will use an Original Prizing format like we’ve done in the past (prizes based on overall record with those winning the majority of their games getting the entire prize pool).

Other tournaments will use a new Balanced Prizing format, where tournaments will be 4 rounds, and each player wins a pack for every match they win (this will give less prizes to the top players, but will spread the packs out more). So double check which events have which prizing method and be sure to attend the one you prefer!
