We have, as you can see, stacks of Shadows Over Innistrad in the stockroom, ready for release at Midnight the morning of April 8th. That means we will remain open from 10 a.m. on April 7 until 1 a.m. on April 8th for your SOI needs. We will not be selling any SOI Fat Packs until after the Fat Pack Tournament taking place at 6:30 pm. on April 8th.
No idea what a Fat Pack Tournament is? Long time Magic players will remember the Sealed Deck tournaments of yore. This is similar. Purchase and open a SOI Fat Pack and build a 40 card play deck from the contents. All other cards are your sideboard. You will receive 1 pack of SOI for each round you win and the lovely trophy above if you have the best standing after play is complete. Hope to see you Friday!
