Prereleases are your first chance to crack open packs and play with the newest cards in Magic. The fun takes place at your local game store, emphasizing social gameplay over competition.
You'll experience the thrill of opening new cards for the first time, at an event filled with other Magic players who enjoy the game just as much as you. Everything you'll need to play should be provided as part of your entry fee - you simply show up and play!
You'll build a 40-card minimum deck using the contents of a themed Prerelease pack. This play format is called "Sealed Deck."
After you build your deck, you'll be randomly paired with another player for a best-two-of-three match. Each round, you'll report who won and be paired up with a new player. If you do well, you may get additional booster packs as prizes!
