GopherDave's picture

Okay, MtG Gophers...

WotC wants us to try something new, so here goes...

For four weeks, we will be running Standard events Saturday evening from 6pm-Close. WotC has lovingly gifted us with forty (40) special prize packs. Details on the prize packs and what they contain can be found here. We are giving away ten (10) of these packs per weekly event.

  • Registration: 5PM
  • Tourney Start: 6PM
  • Event Fee: $5
  • Format: Standard
  • Prizes: 1.5 packs of KLD in the prize pool per player, given out to the top half of the field. 1st Place will be awarded two (2) Saturday Showdown packs as a winner's bonus, while 2nd Place will be awarded one (1) Saturday Showdown packs. The other seven (7) Saturday Showdown packs will be thrown into the Gopher Lottery Door prize pool, which 1st and 2nd place players are eligible to draw from as well

Beyond that, that's it!

peace... GopherDave.
