Pre-registration for all events is absolutely encouraged!
Seriously. Trying to register 70 or 80 people on a Saturday morning is pretty rough, and we can run a much smoother event when you pre-register. You can pre-register in person at the store you want to play at or over the phone with a credit card (learn more about how to pre-register). We’re even bribing you to do it:
- Pre-registration for all sealed events is $32
- Day-of registration is $36.
- Two-Headed Giant is always $32.
Is a box of Amonkhet boosters in your future? Preorder your box at Board Game Barrister and you can pre-register for any Prerelease event for just $10 – plus – you get 6 (six) Aether Revolt boosters free! See all your Amonkhet pre-order options.
Prizes for all events include a booster pack per match win, and many events have additional prizes for those who do well in their event, including From the Vault box sets, Playmats and Additional Boosters. Check out what’s on the line at each event in the “Event Specials” column of the above table, then follow the event link to find out how to win these extras!
Everyone leaves with something! Players who drop out early still receive a pack per completed match they won! Even if you lose all of your matches, you still receive a single booster pack as a prize – so long as you played every match.
Premium Upgrades now available
Once again, you have the option to upgrade your prerelease experience at Board Game Barrister! For $15 more, you’ll receive a playmat and a pack of sleeves on the day of your prerelease event.
2HG == Two-Headed Giant. In Two-Headed Giant, you and a friend play as a team, each opening 1 Prerelease Pack (12 regular boosters and 2 stamped rare/mythic cards total for the team) to create a shared card pool from which you both build separate 40-card decks. Each round, you’ll play against another team in a single 50-minute game.
Super fun, and a proven great way to end Prerelease Saturday. One of our most popular events. Sign up with a friend, or we’ll find a partner for you. 3 rounds, prizes for all. Space is limited to 64 players (32 teams).
