Earning a spot at the aptly named Mythic Championship is a dream come true for any competitive player of the massively popular Magic: The Gathering trading card game which touts a $500,000 prize payout for the event held in Barcelona, Spain this summer. In previous years the travel expenses were at least partially handled by Wizards of the Coast and their parent company Hasbro, but that changed this year, forcing players to dish out possibly thousands of dollars for planes tickets, lodging, dining and other expenses. So, when Nick Sobczak, a regular at Pandemonium Games and Hobbies in Garden City, Michigan, earned a place at the prestigious tournament it didn’t take long for the reality of the costs to set in and quickly damper the excitement. The local gaming community, heartbroken to see the hard-working player (a college student already working two jobs) miss out on the opportunity, raised over $800 for Nick and presented it to him at Pandemonium on May 17th during their Friday Night Magic event. Shortly after a touching video of the moment was uploaded to Facebook and Reddit employees at the Ferndale based Fuse Technology Group (a technology company with a strong gaming tradition and longtime patrons of the Pandemonium game store) took notice and were inspired to provide the remaining travel expenses for the talented player. Players also gathered at Pandemonium for a special tournament they called a Modern Win-a-Mox on June 22nd. This event was designed to cover any additional costs Nick would encounter while in Barcelona for the Magic Mythic Championship. This event was only possible due to a generous donation of an Unlimited Mox Pearl made by another local Magic player, Brett Geer. Brett first heard about Nick's lack of financing for this trip through the same video mentioned earlier. Brett quickly reached out to work with Pandemonium on creating a fantastic event designed to bring players together for fun competition while also raising some funding for Nick's trip. Hundreds of players competed for the chance to attend the Mythic Championship at the qualifier event Nick won, with tens of thousands competing at various events across the globe. With only 500 of these competitors qualifying for the event, many will be unable to attend due to the considerable expenses international travel requires. Pandemonium Games and Hobbies and Fuse Technology Group are proud to support passionate individuals like Nick whom have earned an opportunity as remarkable as a chance to win a legendary event such as this.
