Open House is now at the end of the play season.

To better support new players' learning path, Open House for Bloomburrow takes place at the end of the season.

You can do this however suits your community best, whether through offering seasonal promo packs or other rewards to incentivize these experienced players to teach newer fans the basics.

Commander Party is now offered twice during the Bloomburrow season!

What better way to immerse your players in the story of the latest Magic set than to have them play with augmented rules, designed specifically around the set's theme?

The two weekends where you can run Commander Party events are near the season's start, from August 16 – 22, and again at the end of the season from September 6 – 12. Each WPN store will receive English-language Commander Party materials; local-language files will be available to download on the marketing materials page closer to the event.
