How Does Prerelease Work?
At a Board Game Barrister Prerelease event, you’ll open six draft booster packs from the new set. Build a deck from their contents and play your new deck against a new opponent every round! See our Prerelease Prep from a Former First-Timer for some more guidance and insights.

Everyone who plays through the entire event will take home booster packs from the new set!

0-1 Wins—1 Set Booster Pack
2 Wins—1 Set Booster Pack + 1 Draft Booster Pack
3rd Win—1 Set Booster Pack + 2 Draft Booster Packs
4th Win—1 Set Booster Pack + 3 Draft Booster Packs
