Magic: the Gathering in the UK
Bazaar Games are relaunching our Monday night events, we've already had our first week back where Mr James Mills built one of the sickest Cube Tinker decks i've seen!
General Details for our weekly events are directly below , specifics for the upcoming events follow after.
* Times *
The club is run every Monday.
Doors open 6:10 with the intention of starting 7:30-7:45 allowing for casual games, EDH and other table top games to be played before the event starts
* Venue *
The Irish Centre in Watford. It's a Big venue with cheap drinks, bar snacks and the potential for food very soon.(Food details are still to be confirmed)
Watford Irish Centre
Oxhey Park, Wiggenhall Road
* Event Details *
We run alternating weeks of constructed and limited.
Generally speaking the entrance fees will be:
These can change depending on the specific format I.e. if we draft an older format.
Entrance fees for both formats can be purchased through our site al... Feel free to trade all your jank rares stuck in your binder for 20% store credit and earn drafts from cards stuck in your binder!
Entrance fees for “current set” booster drafts can also be reduced on the night by £2 for each booster brought along to the event up to a maximum of £6 per event. I.e. Drafts can be entered for 3 boosters and £6
Prizes for the most part are awarded as such:
9 Points receives 3 Boosters
6 Points receives 2 boosters
This avoids odd prize distributions where people finishing on the same points in non 8 man pods receive different amounts of boosters
* Possible Formats *
This is a long list of format's available, we're happy to schedule the formats people demand.
We usually run the current draft format on limited weeks except the week before the pre-releases as it as this point people are unlikely to want to draft the old format.This week is usually decided by a group choice of from the formats below.
Constructed weeks alternate between the current PTQ season format (Currently Standard) and one week of something else. Currently "Common and Uncommon only" Standard.
Possible formats include:
-Draft (Current Draft Format)
-Draft (Older formats when available)
-Chaos Draft (Drafting with a range of boosters from lots of sets all at once....chaos!)
-Sealed - All variants listed above
-Intro Pack Sealed
-Deckbuilders Tool kit tournament (Start with a deck builders tool kit, each week for a month you may pay for one booster to be added to your pool and use it to change your deck)
Cube (Someone builds a cube by selecting cards from all of magic's history(approx 500 cards divided evenly among colours). "Packs" are created randomly from this pool of cards and drafted like any other format but obviously the twist being you may have a pack that includes a black lotus, a mox, a umezawa's jitte and even a vizzerdrix! This event is "Phantom" i.e. you don't keep the cards you draft)
-Pauper (Just commons. Available with one of the above set legalities)
-Peasant (Just commons and Uncommons. Available with one of the above set legalities)
