Hey guys,.... yep im new and here is my first post on the forums. Hopefully many more to come. I'm into Magic and D&D (pathfinder) and i was recently just introduced to this site from a hardcore warhammer player from Geelong who i work with. Hope to find some Magic players here. But... for now here's just a simple invite to a Magic Booster Draft in Geelong tomorrow night. It's ONLY $15 and theres heaps of prizes, especially if you can beat our special guest for the month of June.
Place: Good Games Geelong
Game: Magic The Gathering, CCG
Format: Booster draft with 3 x Rise of the Eldrazi booster packs (included in entry price)
Prizes: Plenty!! We will be expecting about 15 people to turn up (hopefully more) so the prizes will be something like 2,1,1,1,1,1 so you dont really have to win the whole thing to get a prize.
Bonus prizes: If you beat our special guest for the month then you will recieve 2 extra booster packs for your victory! (you must beat Justin in a best out of 3 match...and not everyone will get ot play him, but at least 4 people will get the opportunity. ALSO, it's friday Night Magic, and OFFICIAL... so this is a FNM sanctioned event and wizards of the coast have provided the store with special FOIL FNM cards which they will give 4 of to some lucky people. Usually the winner gets one and the other 3 are given out randomly as door prizes.
Time: Registration starts at 7pm, the draft should kick off around 7:30pm
Other info: There's no "rare draft" anymore so you keep whatever cards you draft. For information on what a booster draft is, please see the wizards of the coast website. It's very simple, just turn up if you've never done one and we'll teach you on the spot.\
New Players: We are very keen to increase the numbers of Magic Players in Geelong. Magic is a very competitive game rich with strategy and is very versatile. You can play it anywhere and the setup costs are minimal. We will welcome any new players with open arms. Just ask for help in building your "draft" deck if you're a new player and one of the experienced local players will gladly help.
Our special Guest: Is Justin "Bomber" West. Justin is a past Australian Nationals winner. He has played as part of the Australian Magic Team at Magic Worlds, has played in the Masters of Magic series in the United states and competed in numerous other Professional level events around the world. He has kindly agreed to come out of his magic "retirement" to be Good Games Geelongs guest player of the month, after we were lucky enough to have current magic pro Luke "top deck" Mulcahy play last month. We welcome players new and old to come and play against Bomber!
