Good Morning Magic: WPN Special Featuring Nelson Brown

Gavin Verhey and Nelson Brown sit down to talk game stores and WPN Premium in this edition of Good Morning Magic.

In this week’s episode of Good Morning Magic!, Gavin Verhey sits down with Nelson Brown to discuss why game stores will always be at the core of Magic's community, and why we're passionate about supporting local game stores through the Wizards Play Network. Plus, they discuss what players can expect when visiting a WPN Premium store.

Next week we'll be sharing upcoming WPN Premium Benefits for aspiring stores through the rest of 2022 and early 2023, so keep an eye on this space for more details.


Already Premium? Submit Your Photos to Be Featured!

We've showcased several existing stores in the WPN Premium Showcase Gallery, and we are always seeking more photos to feature—maybe your store is next! Here's how to submit your photos:

  • Head to our online form.

  • On the form, share your store's name and location.

  • Attach around 10 photos of your store (at least one interior and one exterior) using a link to a shared Google Drive folder.

When sharing your Google Drive folder, please be sure the settings are set so anyone with the link can view. Otherwise, we will be unable to view your submission. The end of the form has a few short questions about your experience achieving a WPN Premium designation. From your answers, we'll share a quote when your photos are posted to the gallery to inspire stores hoping to start the Path to WPN Premium themselves.

We've previously shared some best practices for taking your store's interior and exterior photos, though you may consider hiring a professional photographer to help you take stunning images that make your storefront shine. We are looking forward to seeing more WPN Premium stores show off their spaces—if you have photos to share, use our form and get your photos submitted today.
