Magic: the Gathering New Releases Store events

Guilds of Ravnica pre-release Schedule, Sept 29 & 30

This fall Magic explores one of it’s richest and most rewarding worlds, Ravnica, at the Guilds of Ravnica Pre-release on Sept 29 & 30 at Just Games!

We are changing our event schedule in a couple big ways!  If you loved our in-store events, we’ve got some great new things for those. In addition, Wizards is again releasing an ultra-limited number of booster boxes for sale at Pre-release, and we are proud to offer those for pre-order below, or at the event. We have also added a couple special events and prizes, as well as updating our midnight event. Midnight is now less expensive and has even more boosters of Guilds of Ravnica in the prize pool!

The Guildmasters’ Lockbox – Special Prizes

Over $500 in additional prizes were locked away by the Guildmasters – can YOU unlock the secrets within? Join us as we find out what is inside on Saturday, October 6 at Release Weekend Draft!

The Guildmasters’ of Ravnica have locked their treasures away, stating that “Only the most worthy of each Guild may claim what lies within.” Do you have what it takes to unlock the Guildmasters’ Lockbox? Find out at the Guilds of Ravnica pre-release on Sept 29 & 30.

Each event will contain a challenge for one of the Guilds represented in Guilds of Ravnica. If you are the top placing player using that specific guild pack in that event, you will receive a key to the Guildmasters’ Lockbox! On release day, you’ll earn a free draft when you return the key. Best of all, there is a special prize in the Guildmasters’ Lockbox just for you, and great prizes for the whole community.

For example: if you choose Boros at the “Boros Key” event, and you are the top placing Boros player, you will win the key. Note that you don’t need to be in any special position in the event, you just need to have one more than the other players with the same Guild!

The Guildmaster’s lockbox contains over $500 in additional prizes exclusive to Just Games, and only when all five keys are claimed and the set officially releases can you open The Guildmaster’s Lockbox! Once you get your key, keep it until Saturday October 6 when we will open the box and share the wealth within! Every keyholder will receive special bonus items on release day, and every release weekend draft participant will get a special bonus prize!

Earn a Guild Key and bring it to Release draft on Oct 6. Your Guild Key can be returned for a free draft, AND a special prize from the Lockbox.

You can pre-order in the store, online, or over the phone with a credit card. Prerelease weekend is Saturday and Sunday, Sept 29 & 30.

If you want to attend all of the Guildmasters’ Lockbox events, you can register for all 5 at once using the button below. This will automatically reserve one of each Guild for you AND save you $5. If you want to sign up for all 5 and register a partner for 2-Headed Giant at the same time, choose the second option.

Family Sealed – 1 pm Saturday

Going to a pre-release is fun! Getting paired against mom, dad or the family you always play against isn’t. So for Family Sealed, we’re adding a bonus – when you register you designate 1 other person whom you arrived with by writing their name on our registration sheet. If, at any point, you get paired against that person you both get a bonus pack of Guilds of Ravnica immediately! Everyone wins, and you don’t have to feel bad about winning or losing against your friends and family (and yeah, a friend who is like family still counts!).
