The idea of Friday Night Magic is simple: on any given Friday, players know your weekly FNM event is where they can find friends, fun, and battles. Of all WPN programs, FNM gives you the most freedom to meet your community's preferences. Run as many events as you need, in whichever formats your players prefer.
Scheduling: Weekly events between November 10 – January 26
Format: Anything; pick what your community prefers
Rules Enforcement Level: Casual or Regular
Pairing Method: Player-List Only, Swiss
On March 1, 2024, the snapshot metrics will no longer be in effect; only your live metrics will be used to determine promo and product allocations. That means that we will no longer be using Theros: Beyond Death Prerelease numbers when determining your store's Prerelease allocation.
All WPN members must meet a baseline metric requirement to remain part of the network—currently, the minimum requirements are 250 Tickets and 5 Engaged Players annually. WPN Premium retailers must achieve 1,500 Tickets, 30 Engaged Players, and 10 Activated Players annually.
All Magic: The Gathering events reported through Wizards EventLink, including At-Home Prerelease events, will count towards play metrics: Tickets, Engaged Players, and Activated Players.
