One week before War of the Spark is officially released, Magic: The Gathering fans can head to the Star City Game Center in Roanoke, Virginia, for a weekend of cracking packs, building decks, and trying out all the exciting new War of the Spark cards!
Join hundreds of fellow fans who love Magic: The Gathering as much as you do and make new friends as you experience War of the Spark for the first time!
Here are a few reasons why you won't want to miss the War of the Spark Prerelease Celebration at the Star City Game Center April 26-28!
To kick off War of the Spark Prerelease Celebration, we'll be hosting several exciting constructed events! Standard and Modern win-a-box eight-player pods will begin at 7pm and continue to fire throughout the evening, with first place receiving one War of the Spark booster box! Win-a-box champions will be able to collect their booster boxes first-thing Saturday morning! Additionally, we'll have FREE-Standard and Modern FNM at 7pm, with all participants receiving a Standard-legal promo card!
The Star City Game Center will host six Prerelease flights that will be firing all day—three Individual flights and three Two-Headed Giant (2HG). Events will begin at 9am and continue until 7pm that evening. As if experiencing the new set early isn't cool enough, an on-site food truck will be available, as well as prize-wheel spins for each flight you enter!
Fans who can't make the main event Saturday or have a Limited itch that hasn't quite been scratched, will be excited for the return of Sunday flights! With the Prerelease of War of the Spark, we've added two more limited events on Sunday, April 28, one Individual flight and one Two-Headed Giant! Both events will fire at 10am, so be sure to sign up early!
Featuring art by Diego Machuca, Coup D'Paw is the latest limited-edition Star City Games Prerelease Exclusive Creature Collection playmat! Fans participating in one or more of our War of the Spark Prerelease flights now have the option to upgrade any of their flight entries to include one Coup D'Paw playmat for just $5 more (or two for just $10 more in the case of 2HG)!
For each War of the Spark Prerelease flight you enter, you will receive one spin of our Prize Wheel! Prizes include playmats, sleeves, deck boxes, Standard-legal booster packs, and more—every spin's a winner!
Chef Claytor's Dream On A Plate food truck will be on-site from 11am-7pm (Saturday only!) serving up delicious food to our War of the Spark Prerelease attendees!
- Individual flight entry includes one Prerelease kit, from which you'll construct your sealed deck.
