Magic: Dark Ascension Release Schedule

With Dark Ascension coming up at the end of January I just wanted to take a minute and let everyone know what we will be doing for this exciting release!

We will be running an unprecedented four pre-release events! How can we possibly fit this in? Well in addition to the two Saturday events, and the Sunday event, we will be running a Midnight Pre-Release event on the Friday Night, crossing over into Saturday! All four events are Sealed Deck tournaments where participants will get six booster packs, as well as land and a free limited edition promo-card.  They are $30 to enter, or $25 for Stronghold Members.  Here are the Pre-Release Event times:

Pre-Release #1: Fri, January 27th, 9:00pm-2:00am
Pre-Release #2: Saturday, January 28th, 10:00am-4:00pm
Pre-Release #3: Saturday, January 28th, 4:00pm-10:00pm
Pre-Release #4: Sunday, January 29th, 12:00pm-5:00pm

Also note that during the Friday Night Magic immediately before the 1st Pre-Release event, a Standard event running from 5:30pm-9:00pm, we will be giving away a free entry to any pre-release event of your choice to one RANDOM participant!

Launch Party
We will once again be running a Launch Party on the following week (we would love to run more, but as of right now Wizards only allows one, if you want them to change this as we do feel free to email them!).  Like the Pre-Releases the Launch Party will be a Sealed Deck tournament, with a different limited edition promo-card.  It too will be $30 to enter, or $25 for Stronghold Members.

Launch Party: Saturday, February 4th, 12:00pm-5:00pm

Like the Pre-Release we will be giving away a free pass to the Launch Party for one RANDOM participant in the preceding Friday Night Magic event, a Booster Draft on Friday, February 3rd at 5:30pm.

Game Day
We will have our Dark Ascension Game Day event at the end of February. The Game Day is the first major Standard event utilizing Dark Ascension. Players bring a legal standard deck and duke it out. Everyone gets one special edition promo card, and the top eight get a second foil promo card. The entry fee is $15, or $12 for Stronghold Members.

Dark Ascension Game Day: Saturday, February 25th, 12:00pm-5:00pm

As with the other release events we will give away one pass to the Game Day to a lucky Random participant of February 24th FNM event, a Standard format event at 5:30pm.

Knights of the Realm
We will be beginning a great new event type for Magic, called the Knights of the Realm, with these Dark Ascension release events. Knights of the Realm is a season of gaming, that rewards players for their participation and achievement in Black Knight Games Magic events, and it’s free! Check it out here.
