From May 7 to 15, you can host Game Day in your store to engage your competitive players with the opportunity for bragging rights and prizes worthy of the golden age.

Game Day Promos: Participation, Top 8, Winners

The Promos coming with Game Day this season feature a returning frame that will be familiar to your long-time fans of the event.

  • Top 8 Promo: Skyclave Apparition

  • First Place Promo: All-Seeing Arbiter

Game Day Formats

You can host Game Day using the following formats:

  • Draft

  • Sealed

  • Standard

  • Two-Player Brawl

Remember, you can only run Booster Draft or Sealed events if you use Streets of New Capenna Draft Boosters for the event. Game Day is run using Swiss rounds that cut to a top 8.

Tips for Hosting Game Day In-Store

In case you missed it, here's a video by Maria Bartholdi that quickly explains all the need-to-knows for hosting Game Day at your store. Be sure to give it a look if you need a refresher.

Whether you're a Game Day veteran or hosting one for the first time, there are two additional tips to keep top-of-mind:

  • Run your players' preferred format. It's easier for you to generate excitement for players if you're able to advertise a format they love to play. Always run what works best for your community.
  • Consider your prize structure in advance. If you want to take the opportunity to entice more casual players to join in the Game Day festivities, you may consider adding additional booster packs as prizes for participation and individual wins.
