By which, of course, I mean Magic: the Gathering. What? You didn’t think that I was going to start talking about elves and magic snowmen did you? That’d be ridiculous!

We’ve got a ton of special magic events and releases for you this holiday season and beyond, starting with our very own Iconic Masters Draft. Yes, that’s right! For the first time ever, we’re hosting not just one but two drafts to celebrate the latest masters release!

Iconic Masters Draft, Saturday, November 18, Noon & 4pm. $45 at door, $40 if you prepay by Friday, November 17. Preregistration now open!

Then! In December, we’ve got our very first (and last! These things don’t happen often! We’re not kidding when we say, “once in a lifetime,” on this one!) Unstable Draft!

Unstable Draft, Saturday, December 9, Noon & 4pm, $15 or $17.50 with drink special. No preregistration required.

With our classic Saturday Morning Magic Drafts in between. To learn more about these or any of our other numerous events and specials this holiday season, check out our Special Events Page.

And now, friends, I must bring up a tragedy that I hope that you will all join together to help us overcome; deforestation in Ixalan. Yes, that’s right, I’m afraid that the massive popularity of green mana for drafting and constructed play of the current set has radically depleted our supply of draft forests to unsustainable levels. So, in partnership with the non-profit River Heralds, we are setting up a program to Save Ixalan’s Forests.

Between now and whenever we determine that we have enough forests to sustain our drafts again, bring us 20 good quality, black bordered mtg forests and get $1 off entry into any of our magic events, up to 100 forests (for a full $5 off!) per person per event entry.

Thank you. And together, we can reforest Ixalan.

Yes! That’s right! It’s time for everyone’s favorite convention, GeekGirlCon! And, like we do for all of our favorite conventions, we’ve got special events leading right up to it for all of our participants coming into town and looking to get into the spirit early!

Starting with Geek Girl Trivia on Thursday night featuring a range of geek and girl related topics and one of your last chances to actually win GCC passes just for knowing stuff!

Then, on Friday, after you’ve set up your booth and are ready for a late lunch and/or early drinking (Hey, we’ve all been there. The Raygun is a Judgement Free Zone, okay!) our friends from Runic Games are setting up their Hob Happy Hour for you featuring four stations of play and food and drink specials for all GCC pass and ticket holders! Say, did I mention that we have pizza?!

And, on Saturday Morning, well, what we call morning and most civilized folks call “noon,” we’ll be hosting our Ixalan Draft Day featuring great women-officiated play against fun, accepting, local players from a range of genders and ethnicities that, as a thank you for briefly leaving the Convention Center proper, is $5 off for all GCC pass holders!

Plus! Beer, pizza, espresso, pinball and so much more, every day from noon to 11pm (1am on Fridays & Saturdays!), all just a short walk away from the convention in our amazing all ages space in Seattle’s historic Capitol Hill Neighborhood!

The weekend after that on Saturday, 09/30, (boy, this month blew by!) we have our Geek Girl Con Ixalan Release Drafts at noon & 4 for that anyone coming in from GCC (we’re just a short walk away!) gets $5 OFF of our usual $15 buy-in to join.

Then, looking a little further out, the Wizards are releasing both a new Modern Icons and a new Unstable set and we’ll be drafting both; the former in November, the latter in December.sneaky
We’re also developing a Modern Tournament to benefit Gay City which we will announce details about soon and have our regular Wednesday Night Magic Modern Tournaments every week if you want to prepare for it yourself. All of these events and more can always be found on our Events Page if you have any further questions.
