Thank you to everyone that came by the shop this weekend to play in the M13 Prerelease. It was fun and there was much silliness to be had. Battle of Wits was played and won some games. Jeff went 4-0. It was like opposite world. We had over 180 entries across the days, and the monkeys are still doing the math to determine how many unique players there were.
The Winner of the M13 Booster Box is: Nathan Stroh. Your achievement card was selected (and not blank, like the first chosen). Congrats! You can pick up your free box of M13 on Friday.
The overall structure for the M13 Prerelease seemed to work well, and we want to use it again for Return to Ravnica. Things went well and the events were all managable without having a crazy flood of players making things miserable for everyone. Return to Ravnica Prerelease should be even more insane, particularly if they reprint the shock duals (Temple Garden, etc.) like expected.
There was unfortunately two players that couldn't remember that it was a prerelease and things were meant to be fun. They are banned from future events at the store. Please, remember to be friendly, don't cheat, and don't steal. Simple life rules, but apparently people need to be reminded from time to time.
Please comment on what you thought worked, didn't work, or would like to see more of.
