Grades: All Ages

Fridays, 4PM - 7PM (Registration 3:30PM - 3:55PM)

Our Friday 4:00pm draft is great for teens or tweens who are getting into the game, as well as adults. The format is 'draft', so players will open 3 booster packs of cards (one pack at a time) and pick a card out of each pack, passing them around the table. After they pick their cards they will build 40 card decks, which they use to play in a 3-round tournament.
The top players at each draft table will win prize packs, depending on their rank. Entry is $18 and things end around 7:30pm.
Homemade pizza, sandwiches, soup, snacks, beverages and sweets available for purchase during play. Registration begins at 3:30pm and closes at 3:55pm. A draft is a timed event that will begin promptly at 4pm. Contact info@thebrooklynstrategist.com to arrange a private draft event; Magic can extend to every day of the week!

Our Early Draft takes place at 4:00pm on Friday

Other drafts take place at 7:00pm on Wednesday and Friday.
