Pandemonium: a WPN Premium Location

We're excited to announce Pandemonium Games & Hobbies is among the first wave of Wizards Play Network Premium locations in the world!

We have been working closely with Wizards of the Coast to accomplish this goal. There's a lot of new and exciting things going on behind the scenes that we can't tell you about just yet, but we promise it's all good. Everything we do here is about community. The future of Pandemonium will always be about continuing to grow and support our amazing gaming communities.


So, what is WPN Premium?

WPN Premium is how Wizards of the Coast publicly recognizes the best stores in the world. It's a way for Wizards to support locations in a distinct fashion that equals the store's contribution to the Magic community.


What does this mean for our Magic players?

Well to start it means exclusive events, upgraded promo materials, and more. With the announcement of WPN Premium, Wizards is changing up how they handle promo distribution. Pandemonium is on track to be one of the few locations in the world that will receive the maximum allotment of promotional materials. One such promotional material will be the new Promo Packs which contain four cards per pack. Promo Packs will make their debut in the Core Set 2020 Magic season. One of the other cool things about Promo Packs is they are not tied to any one specific event. So regardless of if you're an Engaged Player or not, players across all of our events will have some sort of opportunity to receive this exciting new promotional material.


What are “Engaged Players?”

An Engaged Player is a term defined by Wizard of the Coast as: “A player who joins six events, in either Standard, Draft, or Sealed, per year.” Engaged Players are one of the new WPN Store metrics tracked by Wizards. They'll use this metric to track how active a store's Standard and Limited communities are.


What about Modern, Commander, and all the other players?

No worries. Wizards is still tracking the success of those communities within each WPN Store in addition to the success of the Standard and Limited communities. Each time you play at Pandemonium you are helping to maintain and grow our communities, and Wizards sees that. Your involvement is part of what makes us one of the best locations in the world.


Magic is a wonderful game that continues to grow year after year. We are proud to be among the first locations in the world to achieve the WPN Premium status. We couldn't have done it without the fantastic support of our players and our staff. We promise to continue working hard to make Magic the biggest and best it can be.
