To kick things off we’ll be running 24 hours of Magic events, starting just after midnight Friday night. Then we’ll give you 12 hours to get some rest and recover, and then we’ll have two more events on Sunday.
- 12:00 AM
- 6:00 AM
- 12:00 PM (Noon)
- 6:00 PM
Format: Sealed Deck. Each participant will receive a Born of the Gods Pre-Release Pack to use for building a deck.
Each player will pick a pre-release pack themed on one of the five types of mana. Player preference will be recorded at the time they register for the event, and packs will be handed out according to registered preference on a first-come, first served basis. It pays to register early for these events!
Prize Pool: Every participant who completes their event will receive two Born of the Gods booster packs as part of their prize pool. In addition, $5 from each entry fee will be added to a gift certificate prize pool that will be given to the top placing players, plus to one random participant.
The Wandering Havoc Games Ironman Challenge: Do you want to get the best price possible on a box of the Born of the Gods boosters when they release? How about a free box of Born of the Gods boosters? Here’s your chance!
We’re challenging YOU, and the rules are simple: Participate in all six of our scheduled Pre-Release events. Participation means you are there throughout all six of the events, from start to finish. At our midnight pre-release, we’ll register you as one of our Ironmen for the weekend. As you complete each event, we’ll record your overall standing.
The Ironman with the best overall standing at the end of the last pre-release will get a free box of Born of the Gods boosters on February 7th when the set releases. Everyone else who completes all six events will be eligible to purchase a box of Born of the Gods boosters for $25 off our normal box price of $109.99, which means it’ll cost you $84.99 plus tax. Are you crazy enough to do it?
Pre-Orders: We’re also starting to take pre-orders of Born of the Gods Booster Boxes, Fat Packs, and Intro Decks:
- Booster Boxes: $109.99, or $98.99 for Store Members/Millitary
- Fat Packs: $39.99, 0r $35.99 for Store Members/Millitary
- Intro Deck: $14.99, or $13.49 for Store Members/Millitary
Quantities are limited for release day, and of course tax will have to be added to all purchases.

2014 promises to be a great year for us at Wandering Havoc Games. We’d like to kick off the new year by thanking everyone who has supported our store this last year, and since we opened up in April of 2008. In 2013 we moved to a new location on State Street, leaving behind our old location across from the Comford Park facing 6th. It was a big move for us, and so far it’s been fantastic.
The best part of it for us is that our community has grown tremendously since the new location is easier to find and much more comfortable. Our Friday Night Magic events are always well attended, and new events like our 13th Age Organized Play, Pathfinder Society, and X-Wing casual play have been very successful. We’re looking to add more special events on Saturdays, so that there’s always something going on during the weekends.
Speaking of special events, we will be running a Magic The Gathering: Born of the Gods PreRelease on the 1st and 2nd of February. Last PreRelease we noticed several of our players were crazy enough to come to all of the events. This time we’ll be rewarding those of you who do, by adding a special Ironman player category. To be an Ironman player, all you have to do is register as an Ironman during our midnight PreRelease event and participate in all six of our events. If you do, then you’ll be eligible for a box of Born of the Gods boosters on release day for the cut-rate price of $84.99. The Ironman player who has the best record over all six events will be awarded with a free box of Born of the Gods boosters on release day! For those of you who can’t be there all weekend long, we’ll still be doing our standard PreRelease prize pool ($5/player go into the pool and 50% of the players get a gift certificate with values tiered by standing, and all players who complete the event get two Born of the Gods booster packs). We’re working on some more special features for our PreRelease that we can’t talk about yet because they’re not final. We can tell you the entry fee will not change from last time ($25). The final details of the events that weekend should be out soon.
The only reason we can do all of this is because of our fantastic community. The volunteers who help us run and organize events, the players who support our store by coming in and bringing their friends to our events, and the customers who purchase the games they love from us. Thank you so much for making our store a success.
If you can safely make it into the store for some gaming or last minute Christmas shopping we’re open!
