Guilds of Ravnica Bundle Rumble – October 5th

Battleground’s BUNDLE RUMBLE is back for Guilds of Ravnica!!  Join us for our flagship Sealed Deck event and help us celebrate the release of Magic’s latest set
(Formerly the Fat Pack Challenge)

 

Format: **Bundle Sealed**
Date: October 5th, 2018 a FRIDAY
Time: 7:00pm
Entrance Fee: $40.00

 

Please preregister! Space is limited!

 

Please email Chase@battlegroundgames.com with any questions.

 

Guilds of Ravnica will be released on Friday, October 5th and we will have a full line-up of events for you to crack packs, build decks and play Magic at both of our stores! The weekend will kick off with our flagship Sealed Deck style event, the Bundle Rumble.

 

The Battleground Bundle Rumble is taking place on Friday night, 10/5/2018, in Abington and Norton (run in place of Standard FNM). These are the ultimate sealed events – where you open packs, build a deck and play with just the contents of a Guilds of Ravnica Bundle!

 

The concept of the Bundle Rumble is pretty simple. Each player will receive a Guilds of Ravnica Bundle with which to build a 40 card deck. Players may use ONLY what is inside of their Bundle to construct their decks. No additional land will be provided!  This event is essentially a 10 pack sealed deck tournament.

 

Player’s in the event will be competing for glory and a super sweet commemorative plaque. No other prizes will be award for this event.

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.
.

Behind the Shield – Episode 119 – “Lightseekers, Battlebond, Spellbooks and D&D”

We haven’t talked much on the program yet about the newish collectible card game to take the stores by storm so here’s an interview with Riley about Lightseekers and about the new Battlebond set for Magic and the Jace’s Spell Card supplement. Then Amanda and Andrew sit down to talk a little about Dungeons and Dragons and somewhat lose track of time. When you’re talking D&D (or playing it for that matter) time has no meaning.
