Magic: the Gathering in the UK
As part of a series of 'Win a Box' tournaments organised by AXION, except this time it's 'win 3 boxes' because it's a team trio! And booster prizes for all the teams with a winning record on the day.
The format is Sealed Return to Ravnica block - each team of 3 receives 12 boosters (4 x R2R, 4 x GTC and 4 x DMZ) which which to built 3 decks (40 cards minimum). Each player is allocated a letter A, B or C and each round between two teams will see players with the same letter face each other. If 2 players from the same team win their individual (best of 3) match then their team wins the match. Teams can draw of course: if one of the 3 matches ends up in a draw and the other two matches are won by players from opposite teams, or indeed if all 3 matches end up as draws.
If less than 32 teams compete, the final results will be based on straight Swiss: the team with most points at the end walks away with the glory...and the 3 boxes.
If 32 teams or more, there will be a cut to Top 4 draft. There will be 2 semi-finals (each doing their own team draft) and the winners will proceed to another draft for the final. So 2 free drafts for the finalists!
The location is Chesham Town Hall (where we normally host our PTQs) with ample free parking on Sunday. Less than 5 minutes walking distance from the station (Metropolitan Line)
Registration opens at 10:15, seating for deck building is 11:00.
REL will be competitive
Entry is £20 per player (or £60 per team obviously)
In addition to the booster prizes, we will have a 'Gather the Townsfolk' trophy for the best town (best overall score of the Town's top 3 teams at the end of the swiss) and a special award for the best Junior team (combined age of 40)
