COVID-19 Magic: the Gathering Store events

Zendikar Rising Prerelease, Sept 18-20

Zendikar is a dangerous world of lethal risks and priceless rewards. From the perspective of its inhabitants, it is a hostile place that seems to be actively trying to kill the creatures that have the audacity to live there. Join Just Games for the Zendikar Rising Prerelease on Sept 18-20. Bigger and better than ever, entering a prerelease event either at home or in-store enters you to win a whole booster box in our “Search for Land” giveaway!

The danger is unrelenting: precarious terrain, cunning predators, natural disasters on a massive scale, and the Roil—the unpredictable ripples of change that wash through the land—all present a constant challenge to survival.

Zendikar Rising Prerelease, Sept 18-20

Set Boosters aren’t quite up for preorder yet, since they come out a week later than the prerelease materials. But they will be soon, once our numbers are confirmed by Wizards and Distribution. We’ll send you an email when that preorder goes live – join our newsletter below if you’re not already on it.

Draft Packs are your traditional pack. Set Boosters are a cool new product, designed to have more goodies for those that just want to put them. Read all about them here!Zendikar Rising Prerelease, Sept 18-20



If you would, at the time of purchase, be willing to play in-store in a group of no more than 18, purchase a specific time slot instead of a Play at Home ticket. These purchases will help us track how many of our players are comfortable playing in a public space. That way, should NYS open up high-risk indoor activities, we have a good idea of whether we should immediately offer them (for what it’s worth, we did this exact test on Core 2021, and only around 20% of people who signed up asked to play in store). We’re watching this pretty closely, so please only buy the ticket you intend to play if the event were held today.

In the event we can’t host events yet (very likely) we will convert all time slots into PLAY AT HOME, with a CURBSIDE PICKUP shipping option. Please note that due to COVID, any prerelease product ordered may be picked up from Sept 18-24, including: Draft Booster Boxes, Collector Booster Boxes, Prerelease Kits & Bonus Set Booster packs. Bundles, Commander decks, Set Booster Boxes and individual packs will be available on Sept. 25
