Mikal Peterson,

Core Games

Chaos – $12 | Hour of Devastation +Amonkhet $18

Come join us for a sanctioned Chaos format booster draft.

Booster Draft is a limited format in which players pass booster packs around the table and choose cards to construct a deck. Players each have 3 booster packs.  Players open one booster pack and choose one card from the pack and then pass the remaining cards to the player on their left.  They will continue until all cards have been chosen from the first booster pack.  Repeat this process for the next two boosters, switching the direction in which the boosters are passed around the table.  Once all the packs have been drafted, everyone builds a deck from the cards they have selected.  You may add as many basic lands (Plains, Islands, Swamps, Mountains, and Forests) to your deck as you’d like, but each deck must have at least 40 cards.

8 person drafts will be run as sanctioned swiss drafts.  Less than 8 person drafts will be run as casual, single game Conspiracy style events.

All day there will be an opportunity to draft.
