FNM

Every Magic Player's Favorite Day of the Week

tl:dr - MODERN Tourneys every week, casual events as requested.

Every Friday, BBC will host a regular Modern tournament. We'll run it the same way we always have used to run Standard:

  • $5 to Enter - Starts at 7pm.
  • The format for this event is MODERN. The current ban list for this format is available here.
  • 8 to 16 players, 3 Rounds | 17 to 31 players, 4 rounds | 32+ players, 5 rounds
  • 2 packs per player in the prize pool, and the same record always gets the same amount of prize.
  • Pack prizes will go to players with a BETTER than 50% record, and we will also have random prizes at the end of the tourney as well.
  • Top two finishers minimum will receive a promo card. If we have more than two with first-place records, all players with that record will receive a promo.

We will also offer FNM Casual Side Events. The way these will work is as follows:

  • We'll take sign ups for casual events at the counter. Sign in your name and what type of event you would like to play (examples listed below).
  • If we get close to enough players interested in an event, we'll announce that a game is forming, and sign people up from there.
  • The minimum number of players for any casual event will be 4 players. Sealed events like draft will need 8 players.
  • Once a group has been made, players will need to make a choice on whether they would like to play for promos only, or additional pack prizes as well. If players want to play for a promo ONLY, then there will be no fee. If players want to play for packs, then there will be an appropriate fee (details below).
  • The first place finisher will receive a FNM promo, whether or not there was an entry fee.
  • All casual events need to begin before 10pm*. Any remaining promos not reserved for casual events will be distributed randomly to players in the Modern tournament (limit one promo per player per tournament).
  • * Traditionally, there is a booster draft after FNM for players in the Modern tournament. If there is a draft that will begin after the Modern tournament finishes, a promo will be given to the first place finisher of that draft.

Examples of casual tournaments available are as follows:

  • Booster Drafts (4 packs of product required as entry fee)
  • Cube Drafts ($5 entry for pack prizes: 8 players, 3 rounds, 1 pack per win. Players can only play for packs with a BBC provided or approved cube. Ask Dave for details.)
  • Commander Pods (minimum 4 players, max 6; no entry fee, no pack prizes (this may be reviewed later)
  • 8-Man Constructed (8 players, 3 rounds. $5 for packs, 1 per win. $20 for Win-a-Box format)

Please realize that is a new take on FNM, so things are still pretty fluid on how to handle this. This is a basic guideline for events, and could change based on player feedback.
