MTG WPNQ Final

In order to earn a coveted invite to the Player’s Tour there are a couple of paths one might take, but only one goes through your friendly local game stores: the WPN Qualifier (Or WPNQ), and Black Knight Games is lucky enough to be one of the only shops in Ontario able to host one!

This time we will be hosting ours as an Invitational event, with four Preliminaries leading up to it – each one seeding us with 8 seats, let’s look at those dates:

SAT, February 1: Preliminary #1 (Modern)
SAT, February 1: Preliminary #2 (Modern) – yes, back to back
SAT, February 15: Preliminary #3 (Standard)
SAT, February 22: Preliminary #4 (Pioneer)

SAT, March 7: Final Invitational (Standard)

At the Final the eight players from each Preliminary who have qualified will meet up for our 32 player event for the big prize!
