Additionally there will be door prizes, delicious snacks from our friends at Hearty Hooligan, and more fun.

Prizes: We will add three War of the Spark packs into the prize pool per participant.  Each match (aka best of 3 round) a player wins will earn them a prize pack.  Remaining packs (1 per person) are distributed among undefeated and 3-1 players (3-1 players get +1 pack, undefeated players split the rest, usually that means between 12-16 packs).  We will also randomly distribute a second Hero’s Reward for every 5 participants (including one to any winless players – which means everyone gets something!).

Youth Event: We have recently introduced the Knights of Blackwood Youth Program (to encourage our players ages 6-16 to participate in games), and we will be hosting a fun and casual MTG Prerelease event for our younger players on the same weekend!  Check out the Knights of Blackwood  War of the Spark Prerelease event for more details.

Preorder Special:  Just like with the past number of sets when you preorder you’ll be able to pick up your booster box at the prerelease weekend, as well as a special Tezzeret Buy-a-Box card!  Check out our Preorder Special for all the details!

MTG Youth Prerelease War of the Spark

The Knights of Blackwood is our FREE to join Youth Program.  Our goal is to provide great events for the younger players in the shop to participate in, and to that end we are very excited to bring you a Youth-Focused Prerelease event for Magic: the Gathering!

When: SUN, April 28, 12:00pm – 2:30pm

Entry Fee: $40.00 -or- 9 Hero’s Rewards

Event Details: This is a Prerelease Event, which means that you get cards from the new War of the Spark set a WEEK before they are released!  Participants will get packs, and build a deck at the event.  They will then play games with others and win prizes!  Play is open, but we will help players find opponents.

What You Get: All Participants will get a Prerelease Pack that includes 6 Booster Packs, a Dice, and a Foil Pomo Card (taken from the Rares/Mythic Rares of the set).  Additionally all participants will get an extra Booster Pack, and a Hero’s Reward for participating.  Lastly, all Knights of Blackwood members will get a free Knights of Blackwood Pet!

Adult Mentors: The Knights of Blackwood is a program for kids ages 6-16, however anyone can participate in this event.  If you are older than 16 years old, you will be a ‘mentor’ helping out the younger players with rules and being a good example of a good sport.  Mentors will get all the same rewards as younger players, except the Pets.

Prizes: Everyone that plays a game will earn another Ravnica Allegiance booster pack, and when you win your first match you earn another!  Combine that with the free pack you get for joining in and every player gets 3 packs!  Anyone that plays at least 3 matches will get another Hero’s Reward (and will get that third pack if they didn’t win any).

So join us and all the other cool kids for some Prerelease fun, at our Knights of Blackwood prerelease for Magic!
