Magic: The Gathering Prerelease events are laid-back, fun events where players get to play a new set a week before the release date. They’re great fun, and they’re only available at Wizards Play Network stores like Nerdvana.
Prerelease weekend is also the only opportunity you have to buy the new set early: We’ll be offering booster boxes for sale during Prerelease weekend. After the weekend is over, you won’t be able to get boosters of the new set until a week later.
Cost: $30 plus tax for each event. You can preregister with payment in person, over the phone with a credit card, or via PayPal checkout at the bottom of this page.
Prerelease #1: Friday, September 27th at 6pm
Prerelease #2: Saturday, September 28th at noon
*** NOTE THE CHANGE IN SCHEDULE FROM PREVIOUS PRERELEASE WEEKENDS ***
These are each three-round events. Budget four to four and a half hours for each.
Every player receives a booster pack for completing at least one round, win or lose. In addition, each round win gets you another pack. These prizes are given out at the end of the event or when the player drops.
Every player will receive the following:
– 6 booster packs. You’ll open these at the start of the event and use the cards to construct your deck!
– 1 promo card – a stamped, foil promo version of a random rare or mythic rare card from the set. You might even get a foil planeswalker!
– 1 spindown life counter with the new set symbol.
– 1 swanky deck box from the new set, with a place to store the spindown!
We have limited seating for this event, so it’s a good idea to pre-register! You can register in person with any accepted form of payment, or sign up via PayPal at the bottom of this page. Sorry, we are no longer accepting preregistrations over the phone.
Prerelease signups are absolutely non-refundable and non-transferable. Players who do not show up during the event will have their product held until release day. We cannot release prerelease packs after the event before Friday, October 4th.
If you’re signing up via PayPal, you MUST give us the name of the player with payment.
