Miniatures & Board Games Night, Tabletop & Board Games Night: Every Mondays from 6pm
Games played: Blood Bowl, Malifaux, Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures, Warmachine and Hordes, Shadow War: Armageddon, Board Games, Miniature Wargames
Wednesday – Non-profit Draft Night (7pm) & Playtesting Night (5pm), and Commander & Final Fantasy TCG Night from 6pm
Wednesday nights we play host to the Brum Magic draft group. This is a community run draft evening. A community spokesperson will be responsible of running the event without charge for their time. What this means is that players can draft for only £11, or use their own packs. We will always have staff at hand for store related queries and transactions.
In a booster draft, each player begins with 3 fresh booster packs. You begin by opening a pack and choosing to keep 1 card from it. Then, you pass the rest of the pack to the next player and take another card from the pack being passed to you. You repeat this process until you have drafted all 3 of your booster packs and theoretically built a deck along the way. We then play 3 rounds against each other and you win more booster packs if you win matches.
Booster Draft is a great way of enjoying Magic: the Gathering on a budget. You don’t need any cards to get you started and every draft begins with a blank canvas. Learning to draft well can be tricky, but our draft nights support the existence of 2 pods of players: casual and competitive. If you’re new to draft and don’t want to be too overwhelmed, you can try out the casual pod. However, if you fancy yourself a challenge, you can try drafting against our veterans in the competitive pod. Entry fee either way is just £11 and we always draft with the latest Magic sets. Just come along and have some fun trying your hand at this awesome format!
Wednesday nights are also our team and general playtesting nights. Although players are welcomed to come and test in the store any time they’d like, Wednesday evenings seem to be the most popular time for testing Magic: the Gathering decks.
Wednesday nights also belong to Commander! Commander is Magic’s premier multiplayer format with a huge following all over the world. In Commander, you build a 99 card deck containing no more than 1 copy of any individual card (excluding basic lands of course). You begin the game with access to a “Commander” which is a Legendary Creature that leads your deck as its 100th card. Your deck must contain only cards that are in the same colour(s) as your Commander (for example, you can not use red or green cards if your commander is a white/blue/black creature).
Commander is one of the most fun and enjoyable formats in Magic: the Gathering. With access to 100 cards in each deck, the possibility for crazy shenanigans is much higher and no two games play out the same way. If you’ve never played before and want to give it a go, just come along! Chances our that one of our regular players will have a deck you can borrow and see what the format has in store for you!
Games played: Magic: the Gathering (Booster Draft, Cube Draft, Playtesting), Final Fantasy TCG, Magic: the Gathering (Commander)
Friday – FNM (Standard, Modern, Commander!) from 7pm, but come as early as possible!
Friday night is of course, Friday Night Magic (or FNM for short). FNMs are the very basic entry-level tournaments for Magic, suitable for players of literally every skill level. Whether you’ve been playing for years or you’re just starting out, FNM has something for everyone. We play 3 formats every night: Standard, Modern and Commander. Just pick the one that suits you the best and jump right in!
Each of our Standard and Modern FNMs are just £6 to enter and you’ll win a booster pack or £3 store credit for every round that you win (with 4 rounds happening each night). Also, the best part about FNM, is that you can also win cool foil promo cards! We will naturally award these promos to anyone who can win all 4 of their matches, but we also try to reward cool plays and interesting decks throughout the night. The promo for FNM changes every month, so keep coming back and you can get even more to add to your collection.
FNM starts at 7pm and ends around 10:30pm-11pm. Commander players can come at any time. Players are encouraged to arrive at the store as early as possible to get cards, collect orders, trade, have some casual games and also avoid the last minute rush. We are open from 10am every day and players start arriving from 3pm week days.
Games played: Magic: the Gathering (Standard, Modern, Commander)
Saturdays – Standard Showdown, Casual Magic League, Commander Club, and open gaming for all games!
