Magic: the Gathering in the UK
The 2010 season culminates at the World Championships in Chiba, Japan on December 9-12. Chiba is located on Yokohama Bay, approximately an hour and a half outside downtown Tokyo, and the event will take place at Makuhari Messe. The last time Worlds came to Japan was 2005 in Yokohama, which featured victories by the host country in both the individual and team portions of the event. Will one of Magic's powerhouse nations repeat the feat? Along with crowning the world champion and team world champions, Worlds serves as the backdrop for the Hall of Fame class induction ceremony where the legends of the game are immortalized alongside the likes of Jon Finkel and Kai Budde.
