[iLike Magic] Birthday and Prizegiving Special Event: Only 3 more sleeps!

Kia Ora Dragon Bill,

Our Birthday Weekend is finally here and we are busy getting ready. We will have our biggest Magic event, 5 Draft Pods!

What is happening?

Each calendar year (1 Jan - 31st Dec) we allocate iLike Cup Points for the Pod Winners at Friday Night Magic, for 1st, 2nd and 3rd on Saturday events and bonus points for special events. We have a separate points system for new players in our M-Series Events.

These Points added up to give us our Cup Winners. As an extra bonus for the top 16 general players and top 8 for M-Series we added special prize drafts.

These drafts and the Prize Giving is this Saturday 7th March.

But there’s more! Because this is also our Store’s Birthday we have added 2 additional Draft Pods so all our players can join in the festivities. These Drafts are at a special price of $10.00.

Saturday Registration is 12:30pm and drafting will begin at 1:00pm.

All the players in the Prize Drafts have now confirmed, but we still have a few $10 Birthday Draft seats left. To join in the fun and support your fellow players please book now!

Prize Giving will be at 5:00pm, friends and family are welcome, so ensure you invite them to come along at 5:00pm, too.

Friday Night Magic is on as usual, 5:30pm Registration for a 6:00pm start.
Sunday M-Series starting at 1:00 pm.

Thank You for your support throughout this year. We hope you have a Magic filled 2015.

News Till 27th Febuary

Friday started with a blast, lots of people come home to Dunedin and Magic, Magic, Magic.

The Friday Night draft was full but we made room for our guest from Wellington, it was a great draft and both pods had fun rounds. When we have oversized drafts and use swiss for the results we are crediting both winners if there is a draw, well done Daniel and Garth. Over in pod 1 our new player from The Magic Flat, Craig to top honours.

Saturday Fate Reforged Gameday was nice and relaxed, we all wanted the play mat. Blue Black control battled, but it was Gene visiting from the North Island who took the prize. We wish him good luck in his PTQ Vancouver this weekend. I’m a little jealous of his travels, but that’s what you can do when you are good at Magic.

Sunday we ran a special Gameday event for our players who couldn’t make it on Saturday. Another fun day, and only 1 blue black control player. Well done Raven for your win.

Monday afternoon we jammed EDH, until Chris had to take me home.

We are currently trying to locate a nice place to hold the iLike Magic Birthday Drafts and the Dragons Prerelease, so please keep an eye out for the updated place/dates and times. Read More...
