Guilds of Ravnica Prerelease – Sept 29th and 30th

 

Come return again with us to the city plane of Ravnica with the Guilds of Ravnica Pre-Release – September 29th and September 30th, 2018.  Get things started in a huge way at our Midnight Prerelease on Friday night / Saturday morning at 12:00am, after FNM.
.
A look at the schedule can be seen in the image above.  Here are a few more details:
.
For the Guilds of Ravnica Prerelease we will be asking players to select a particular “Guild Pack” that they will use during the event.  These Guild Packs are similar to the Prerelease Packs you may be used to, except instead of 6 booster packs they’ll include 5 booster packs + 1 “seeded” pack that corresponds to the two colors that represent your chosen guild.  It is recommended that players preregister to make sure they get the two-color Guild Packs that they’d like.
.
Please talk to someone at the store or email me at Chase@battlegroundgames.com to preregister.
.
Sealed Deck Format: Each player receives one Guilds of Ravnica Prerelease Pack (5 Guilds of Ravnica boosters + 1 seeded guild booster + 1 guild promo + 20 sided spin down life counter) with which to build their deck.
.
Two-Headed Giant (2HG) Sealed Deck Format: Each TEAM will receive 2 Guilds of Ravnica Prerelease Packs with which to build two 40 card decks.
.
OUR CASUAL FRIENDLY PRIZE PAYOUT WILL AWARD PRIZE PACKS TO EVERYONE THAT’S WON TWO OR MORE MATCHES!
.
Please note: Prerelease packs are first-come first-serve. If you desire a specific guild for your Prerelease Pack please tell us when you register so we can put one aside for you!
.
If you have pre-ordered a box of Guilds of Ravnica you may pick it up a WEEK EARLY at one of these events and also receive the Buy-A-Box Promo Impervious Greatwurm.
.

Huge End of Summer Sale – September 22nd

Come down for massive savings on tons of stock at our End of Summer Sale, September 22nd in Abington.

Over our sixteen years in business, three locations in Massachusetts, and multiple annual conventions, Battleground has accumulated quite an impressive amount of inventory. We’ve decided to put together a sale at our Abington location that our customers can really take advantage of.

Leading up to the sale, we’ll be posting pictures throughout the month of September of just a small amount of what you’ll find available for unbelievably low prices. And don’t think that this is just going to be old, dusty games that have been languishing without a home for too long (although those will be available as well at super-low prices)! No, this sale will feature some of the hottest games going that we just happen to be a bit overstocked on.

Furthermore, we’ll be pulling some REALLY old stuff out from the vaults in our storage area. Several of these old games and accessories haven’t seen the light of day for many years. Who knows what sort of treasures you’re likely to discover?

Here’s a list of some of the stuff on sale.  Come check it out this Saturday in Abington.

Behind the Shield – Episode 133 – “Megababble”

After many long years the Warhammer Meggabattle finally returned to our Abington location this past Sunday and Andrew was there to interview a bunch of the participants. Let’s hope it won’t be five more years before the next Meggabattle, because this was astonishing to behold in its scope.
