Magic: the Gathering in the UK

Hi all,

I just wanted to put something out there -

If I organised this event for next year March, would enough people be interested?

Cube Masters Series 2011


1st Place – Full set of Legacy Dual Lands (Revised)
2nd Place – Full set of Ravnica Shock Lands
3rd Place – Full set of foil Ravnica Karoo lands, foil Alara tri-lands and foil Ravnica signets

Entry Fee:
£12
Cube Masters Series Card:
Foil Mystical Teachings (with Cube Masters Series stamp) for each competitor

Using a 360 card fully-powered Cube, competitors will battle it out for a full set of Legacy Dual Lands through a series of sealed and draft tournament Qualifiers and a Main Event!

I could see myself paying in advance, but its not without problems.

What do you do if 8 people pay up front and still only 5 turn up? Run a 5 person qualifier? Same number of slots
or not?
Yes, in this case a 5 man event would be played, and the top 4 would qualify for the main event.

I think if people are paying £12 up front, we won't see alot of 'no shows', as it's literally throwing £12 down the drain.

I guess substitutes will be accepted - so you can send someone in your stead if you can't make it.

I would pay in advance and turn up so no probs here!
Not at all, and definitely prefer cards as prizes over cash.

I agree with this. Special cards > cash-money. And if the winner wants money, they can just sell the cards.

This series is about playing Magic in its purest form, with the most powerful cards ever printed - its about giving people the opportunity to once again play with their favourite cards, and to experience insane combinations they otherwise would never have encountered before.

My only concern is getting people to actually show for the qualifiers. It will be a shame to organise a qualifier for a Saturday, and then only 5 players show up.

I'm thinking about perhaps doing this:

If you sign-up to the tournament, you pay upfront. If you miss your qualifier, tough luck. Regardless of the reasons why you missed it, I still need to pay for prizes!

Would this turn people away?

I agree with Dan, I would actually prefer some special cards to be honest, don't get me wrong I like money but it isn't really what it's about
Collecting money up front seems like a good idea. The last unusual event (Team Rochester) had a lot of interest but not enough actual participants to happen!
i'm up for this : )
paying up front is the only way to do this me thinks, so often these things seem like a good idea and people just can't be bothered

Id be willing to pay upfront (regardless of the horrible failure that is likely to ensure) I'd just need the date as it coinciding with essay deadlines would be bad times
Do you mean failure of the event?

In what ways do you see the event failing if competitors have to pay a deposit upfront?

I will share my Paypal as soon as the event is confirmed.

How do you guys propose is the best way to register players? First come first serve? Text Message to me?

I'm thinking about creating a thread on this forum, and the first 32 people to add a 'REGISTER ME' post are registered and emailed paypal details. They will then have 10 days after a set date to deposit the fee, or their spot will be given to the next inline after the first 32.

What do you guys think?
