Magic Open House: Core Set 2019

Event Dates: June 30–July 1, 2018

Magic Open House is the best time to give potential players their first match. Use this learn-to-play flipbook to run a consistent, streamlined demo.

Of course, a player's first match is only a success if they want to play a second. Watch our guide to the perfect demo here.

Hand out a foil, full-art Guttersnipe to each new player participant. Veteran players can earn one by bringing a friend, teaching a new player, or playing with a new player.

Prerelease: Core Set 2019

Event Dates: July 7–8, 2018

Core Set 2019 is the best entry point for new players, and its kit comes with another new tool to boost your efforts.


(Get a video walkthrough of the kit here.)

This display makes it even easier for potential players to jump into Magic by providing space for a short, no-pressure introduction to the game. Set up your display at the front of your store in highly visible area to encourage customer engagement.

This Welcome Deck display helps lower the barrier to entry for potential new players and encourages them to take a deck and explore the game. Position this display on your front counter or demo area.

Set up a short introductory scenario that highlights the game's strengths on your new Intro Table. The Welcome Deck display can be attached to the end of the table. This table is quick to assemble and dissemble, and it's portable so you can bring it to offsite events.

Even if an employee isn't available to run the scenario, the Intro Table comes with an info holder that can hold flyers for things like your event schedule.

Position this poster in a highly visible space such as your point-of-sale area or on your front door so both current players and potential new players can easily find your Core Set 2019 event schedule.
