Free ‘Thank You Magic Tournament’ Nov. 21Posted by Brad on Oct 19th, 2015 | 2 Comments
Hello players! As a thank you to the London Magic community, Worlds Away will be hosting a free standard tournament on Saturday, Nov. 21 at 11 a.m. The event will be casual and no deck lists are required. The store has been running sanctioned events since 1997, selling Magic since ’94 and I’ve been playing since ’93; the game has provided me with many memories and friendships. The prize pool, which is valued at more than $700, will include real estate (Inkmoth Nexus, Twilight Mire, Creeping Tar Pit, Misty Rainforest, Marsh Flats, Verdant Catacombs, many shock lands) and a host of other cool cards. Cheers!
