What Is It?

All sanctioned Magic: the Gathering play falls into one of two categories: Casual and Tournament. For a Casual event, you have near total freedom. There is exactly one requirement: they must have two players.

What Formats Can Be Run?

Casual events can be run in any format.

Best Practices

1. Enter start times into the "Event Information" field in WER. This feeds into our store and event locator, which many players rely on.

2. Schedule events early. Maximize exposure in the store and event locator by scheduling events at least a month out.

3. Almost anything can be a Casual event. A small weekly Commander game, a quick tutorial with a sample deck. If it's got two people and they're playing Magic, you can sanction it.
