Game Club has done Magic: The Gathering events in the past, but today was the first time we hosted our own official prerelease! 20 kids piled in on a snowy Saturday for nearly 7 hours of geeky goodness! Everyone had a blast pulling fun new cards from the Rivals of Ixalan block and pulling shenanigans for four rounds of head-to-head action. Play of the Day goes to Logan Brewer for attacking with Etali (huge dino) and stealing his opponent's Zacama (biggest dino)... for free! Overall winner was John Trimble, with a black/white tribal vampire deck. Everyone was able to pull off at least one maniacal laughter combo!
A big thanks to Who's Game House of Rapid City for being our supplier, and Justin Cox, local MTG judge who volunteered for the afternoon. The event was such as success that we are looking at hosting a community-wide event for Dominaria in April!
