Prerelease: Strixhaven: School of Mages

We have made several changes to our normal event policies to ensure WPN members do not feel pressured to schedule events and can remain compliant with local health and safety guidelines. Events reported during this period will never impact your play metrics or your product and promotion allocations.

Wizards Event Reporter is being decommissioned on March 23. Connecting your store to Wizards EventLink before the decommission lets us know that your store is still in business and that you’d like to continue receiving Wizards Play Network support.

WPN members who have not signed up for EventLink prior to the decommission will be assumed to be no longer in business or no longer interested in Wizards support and will be removed from the WPN.

Season Length: 12 weeks

Strixhaven: School of Mages season runs from the set’s release on April 23, 2021 to the release of the following set on July 16, 2021. Make sure to ration your Promo Packs to last all 12 weeks.

Traditional Prerelease events (with rounds) and Prerelease Parties (player list only) are now both available to be scheduled from the Prerelease event template on EventLink.

Prerelease at Home

In-store play, including Prerelease, is currently suspended in many regions. We encourage organizers to facilitate virtual tabletop events and other remote play opportunities with community channels like Discord—we've partnered with Discord to help stores create a community hub with a single click.

To help accommodate players' schedules, At-Home Prerelease is available all week from 3PM Friday, April 16.

Those same dates apply to regions where in-store play is available, and organizers can limit the number of people in their store at any given time by scheduling as many events as they need.
