Kids 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 Core 2019 Prerelease event for more details.

MTG: Core 2019 Prerelease (Youth)

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, July 8, 12:00pm – 3:00pm

Entry Fee: $35.00 -or- 9 Hero’s Rewards

Event Details: This is a Prerelease Event, which means that you get cards from the new Core 2019 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 Core 2019 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 Core 2019 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!
