War of the Spark pre-release, April 27 & 28

This spring, Magic: the Gathering brings the War of the Spark to Just Games! Pre-release are April 27 & 28, with the full release on the following Friday.

We have added three new events to our schedule, so if you haven’t been in a while, or still haven’t checked out our new space, now’s your chance!

As a special offer for those who love Magic sets dripping with theme, if you pre-register between now and April 15 for at least 2 pre-release events, you’ll receive a free set of Chandra goggles (while supplies last) for signing up early!

Pre-register today

Advance tickets are sold out. Seats may be available at the door.

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 War of the Spark 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!).


Breakfast – 9 am Sunday

Sunday 9 am join us for food and battle, as we host our first every Breakfast pre-release; french toast, eggs, coffee and juice. Shake off the party from Nox the night before with a breakfast spread, followed by War of the Spark pre-release.



Below is the summary of our  War of the Spark pre-release events, prizes and time-slots.
