Magic the Gathering – Chaos Draft Friday 15th August

Ever played a game of Magic where “Ach! Hans, Run!” from Unhinged was actually used to summon a Tarmagoyf? No? Well now you can make that happen! (if you’re willing to spend loads of money on booster packs and get extremely lucky) Either way, you’ll be happy to hear that we’re putting together a Chaos Draft event to be played at Starbucks!

Chaos Draft is just like any other Magic Draft format: get together with seven of your best drafting buddies and grab three packs of cards for each drafter. The twist is that instead of drafting a normal format—two packs of Oath of the Gatewatch and a pack of Battle for Zendikar, or three packs of Magic Origins, or any of those other carefully crafted formats—you cobble together as many different packs from different sets as you can scrounge up and distribute them randomly among your players.

How to Chaos Draft,

This event will be organized between the gaming club and Tom Kirk at Starbucks. It will be held at Starbucks on Friday the 15th of August, starting at 6pm.

You need to bring three or four booster packs of your choice – anything you like! You’ll be drafting three of them, the fourth is a backup in case you get an amazing booster pack you want to keep. You might also want to bring a pack of sleeves.

There’s no prizes from this event, nor is there any entry fee, though you are expected to buy a drink or snack from Starbucks – it’s just for a bit of fun.

And if you  don’t bring an extra pack, and pull a foil Tarmagoyf and another Tarmagoyf… Just leave the table and never return. No one will blame you.
