Be Aware of MTG Counterfeits
January 4, 2015 (Card Games)
Magic: The Gathering has evolved a lot since its humble beginnings. The card game has national tournaments with qualifiers (and pre-qualifiers), sees play all around the world, and its cards hold enough value that people have created a stock watch for it.
Unfortunately because some of these cards have become so valuable, there are people who try to take advantage of this and sell counterfeit cards. Over the last couple of years the quality of these counterfeit cards has improved dramatically, so you’ll want to take extra care when buying highly valued cards. We don’t want our players to be a victim of fakes, so be sure to check out ApathyHouse’s guide on spotting counterfeits.
More MTG Developments!
November 19, 2014 (Card Games)
MTG news of all sorts, including changes to our Players Wanted MTG League!
First, event news. We want to be more inclusive for our season 1 end tournament, so we’ll have an open tournament rather than an invitation-only one. To spice things up though, you’ll all be playing for a chance to get your name on our very own Players Wanted MTG trophy! We haven’t had it made yet, but if you’ve seen our DreadBall trophy you know it’ll be something worth competing for!
For more details on our MTG league season 1 finale, check out our event posting on Facebook.
Does learning to draft seem daunting? We’ve put together a set of cards from the current set (Khans of Tarkir) that will allow you to practice to your hearts content. Just drop by in store with a couple of friends and we can teach you!
Finally, if you’re looking for some additional challenges or just wanting to do something unorthodox during our magic events, we’ve added a couple more MTG achievements. If you don’t know about our achievements system, you can learn more about it here.

Players Wanted MTG League Unveiling
October 30, 2014 (Card Games)
MTG players, are you looking for some organized play with higher stakes and greater fun? Then join our very own Players Wanted MTG League! The best part is you’re automatically a part of the league if you come to our Friday Night Magic (FNM) or Monday Night Magic (MNM) events!
At the end of every season (generally around four months), we’ll have a special FNM event. Using our Player Points Achievement system, we’ll be handing out tokens of appreciation to those who have attended the greatest number of MTG events we’ve held and to the winningest players of the season. For event details, check out our season 1 finale post.
The first season was secretly started when our achievements system was launched (Oct 10, 2014) and will end after FNM on Jan 2, 2015. We hope you’ll take part in our league and have a great time while doing so. Best of luck to all participants!
