September Magic Events

Hello Magic Players!

Pre-selling Theros Booster boxes for $110 + tax. The release date is September 27. Boxes are also available in Chinese, and Korean (same great price!)

Saturday, September 7 – Magic Celebration!

We have our regular standard event at 1pm for only $5.
But we are also hosting Magic Celebration with Mini-Masters events running all day. Mini-Masters are great fun! First you get a free booster pack of Magic 2014! Remove the basic land and token and add 3 of each basic land. Then battle in best-of-3 games! Oh yeah – you can’t look at the contents of your first booster pack. Winner gets a booster pack to add to his deck. Single elimination tournaments will run all day while supplies last. Once you add your 2nd pack, your deck-construction rules revert to normal rules for Limited decks, which means you can modify your deck contents and add more lands as desired, so long as your deck is at least 40 cards.
Modern Constructed, September 16 at 7pm, $10 
Due to several requests, Battlegrounds Gaming will now host monthly Modern Constructed Magic tournaments on a Monday night. We allow each deck and sideboard to contain up to 8 proxy cards.
