Planeswalkers, get out your decks -- tomorrow is the global "Magic Celebration Day."
At participating local stores on 8 September, Magic Celebration is "a special no-charge event where new and existing players can get together and celebrate all things ," proclaimed Wizards of the Cost. "Magic Celebration is also the perfect way to take your skills from Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 video game and apply them to the real life card game," the added.
Once you've found a local store, here's what to expect:
- Play in a free Mini-Master event with your friends, compliments of Wizards of the Coast
- Start with a complimentary Magic 2013 booster pack and earn up to three more
- Join your local Magic community as you play complimentary Magic and complete your Celebration Achievement Card
- Earn the exclusive Magic Celebration Achievement for your Planeswalker Point account
- Pick up a flyer with a Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 promo code (while they last) and a callout for upcoming Magic release, "Return to Ravnica"
- Ask your event organizer how you can earn one of the foil paper hats featuring the iconic horns of Magic's ultimate evil mastermind, the dragon Planeswalker Nicol Bolas
The play format for the day is Mini-Master. As I'm a noob, "Mini-Master, also known as "Pack Wars," is a great way to have a lot of fun opening boosters. To play, simply grab three of each basic land, open your booster and add the land to it. Then, find another player and battle! Magic Celebration organizers may run additional formats if people are interested, so bring your Standard or Commander deck, and face a greater challenge," said Wizards of the Coast.
