This month’s Trial is a Sealed Gatecrash tournament, Saturday, February 16! $35 entry for 6 packs, top 8 draft, cash prizes, and first place gets a bye to the March GT!
Registration is 10am to Noon. The tournament begins at 12:30. Each player receives six Gatecrash booster packs. When the judge calls to open packs, each player will open their packs and write out their list of cards (the sealed pool). Once all sealed pools are recorded, the pools will be passed several times to a new player, and a time will be given for deck-building.
Any player has the option to drop from the tournament before passing their sealed pool.
The tournament will be played in Swiss rounds to determine a top 8. The top 8 players will then play an elimination draft tournament with three Gatecrash boosters each.
- 1st Place wins $250 cash and a bye at the March GT (see below)
- 2nd Place wins $150 cash
- 3rd & 4th Places win a booster box of choice
