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. Pre-register in-store through Friday, April 21!

  • Pre-registration for all sealed events is $32
  • Day-of registration is $36.
  • Two-Headed Giant is always $32.

All pre-registration for these events will close at 11:59pm on Thursday, July 6.

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).

Pre-register In-Store or Online through Thursday, July 6!

Note: Prerelease tickets are non-refundable. If you are unable to attend an event for which you have pre-registered, your Prerelease Pack including boosters will be set aside for you, and you may retrieve them on the set’s official release day.
