Now it is the March time, when the weather is kinda sorta maybe not so cold, and the big holiday is all about pretending to be Irish in the most offensive way possible! For us here at The Portal it means lots of things, but the biggest of them would be the release of the new Magic set, Dragons of Tarkir. The Prerelease sealed deck events for it will be really awesome for several reasons:
1. More product, more events! Attendance for our Prereleases has been so big that we now have enough product to support a THIRD tournament! So we will be having our usual 12AM midnight event on the 21st, followed by another later that day at 2PM, and we’ll finish it all off with our usual 1PM on the 22nd! There IS a limit to how many people we can have at each, so as always we encourage you to stop by and preregister as early as you can. As incentive, we’ll knock off a few bucks if you pay in advance, AND we’ll knock off even more if you pay in advance for multiple events! Here’s the breakdown:
Each event is $30 at the door.
If you pay in advance and preregister, one event is $25
If you pay in advance and preregister, two events will be $45
If you pay in advance and preregister for all three events, it’s only $65
Prerelease pack colors will be chosen in the order that everyone signs up, so the earlier you register the better your chance of getting the clan you want most!
2. Tarkir Dragonfury. Prerelease packs always come with neat goodies, and activities you can do between rounds. But there has never been anything quite like this. There will be d20 bowling for promos. Yes, you read that right. DRAGON. D20. BOWLING. FOR PROMOS.
3. The Super De-luxe Portal Treatment. There will be snacks. There will be drinks. There will be door prizes. Oh yes.
Now you might be saying, “Portal Guy, I do not care for the Magic. What merriment do you have for the rest of us?” I have not forgotten you, for I too enjoy the board gaming and the tabletop wars and the playing of different roles…
Just take a goosey gander over at the Events Calendar, gentle reader. We have days for D&D, Pathfinder, Malifaux, Warhammer 40K, Heroclix, Dice Masters, Dragonball Z, and MORE! Want suggestions for new hotness to introduce to your gaming group? We’ve got that covered as well:
Be all classy and grow some grapes that will later be made into wine, which will later be sold for points, which you need to win. Because losing is for people who drink lesser beverages, like Fresca.
Go forth and build things out of precious wooden resource tokens, to spread like a bipedal blight across the land and sea. While you’re at it, ask the gods for some favors, if they are not too busy shapeshifting and seducing mortals and whatnot.
Change the faces of your dice to score as many points as you can in this race to find the elusive Rattlebones, a wacky clown person thing. Wait, maybe we shouldn’t find him. But this game DOES have monkeys and mice and really neat dice. Heh. That rhymed.
And what does the future hold? Oh, just things like Tabletop Day and Free Comic Book Day and Magic Grand Prix Trials and PPTQs and our Star Wars May the Fourth Celebration. So yeah…
