Play War of the Spark before it’s officially released at this Magic: the Gathering prerelease event!

As a participant, you’ll be among the first to choose a side in the war between Nicol Bolas and the planeswalkers of the multiverse.

Open six booster packs, build a deck and compete for more packs and prizes!

Pre-registration for all events is absolutely encouraged!
Seriously.  Trying to register 40 or 50 people on a Saturday or Sunday morning is pretty rough, and we can run a much smoother event when you pre-register.

 

Pre-Registration Coming Soon!

(All pre-registration for these events will close at 11:59pm on Thursday, April 25.)
Please Note: Event tickets are non-refundable, non-transferable, and non-exchangeable.

Everyone leaves with something! Players who drop out early still receive a pack per completed match they won! Even if you lose all of your matches, you still receive a single booster pack as a prize – so long as you played all your matches.
