Dragon’s Maze Pre-Release Weekend – April 29 & 30, 2013 – FOLSOM, CA

GamersCircleDragonMazePre

We are going to try something a little different for this prerelease.  Instead of relying on tiebreakers and doing only top 8 prizes.  This prerelease we are going to distribute prizes based on performance.

Four rounds of Swiss

$30.00 for a Dragon Maze Guild Pack [while supplies last]

Saturday, main event, sign ups start at 10 am, tournament starts at 11 am

Sunday, main event, sign ups start at 10 am, tournament starts at 11 am

Prize Payout:

4 wins 0 losses = 10 Packs or $30 Credit
3 wins 0 losses 1 draw = 8 Packs or $24 Credit
3 wins 1 loss = 6 Packs or $18 Credit
2 wins 0 losses 2 draws = 6 Packs or $18 Credit
2 wins 1 loss 1 draw = 4 Packs or $12 Credit
2 wins 2 losses = 2 Packs or $6 Credit
1 win 2 losses 1 draw = 1 Packs or $3 Credit

This is a whole new tournament process that we attempting and ask for your patience and understanding.  [more details in regards to the reporting process will be announced at the tournaments]

A little twist to this prerelease:

All Ten Guilds

When you walk in to a Dragon’s Maze Prerelease, you’ll get to select your favorite guild from among all of the ten guilds of Ravnica! [while supplies last] That guild pack will have a secret allied guild, which will share one color with your chosen guild, and also always be from the opposite set as your chosen guild.

Here is an example: You’re a Dimir player, so that’s the guild you pick. That guild pack might have Return to Ravnica’s Azorius as its secret ally (although it could also be Izzet, Rakdos, or Golgari). That guild pack would have four Dragon’s Maze booster packs, one Gatecrash Dimir guild Prerelease pack, and one Return to Ravnica Azorius guild Prerelease pack. The two guild packs will be the same as they were in their original Prerelease, but will not have that set’s Prerelease promo for those guilds. The guild Prerelease packs will not contain a Spindown life counter, sticker, or guild welcome letter.

Each player will then play against 4 different players over 4 rounds

As long as a player goes 1-2-1(1 wins, 2 losses, and 1 draw) or better, they will receive prize

Please show up early! This event will fill up and we will have to turn people away!

FAQ:

Q: If I cannot make it to the Saturday, but can attend the Sunday, will I be guaranteed a guild pack of my choice?
A: No, we only get so many guild packs and if a certain guild is depleted on Saturday, we will only have what is left over.  It is unfortunate, but that is the truth.

Q: Can I reserve my guild pack ahead of time?
A: Sorry, we do not offer that.
