The Stu Parnes Family Fundraiser in Memory of Quinn Parnes
I've known Stu as a well rounded Magic player for a few years. Every interaction with him has been positive. It was heartbreaking to hear about the recent loss of his wife Quinn. On top of the pain Stu and his stepson Indie are going through are tremendous medical bills.

Upon hearing about the family's loss, members of the Magic community immediately reached out to me offering their support in exchange for an organized event to aid the grieving family.

I've been working behind the scenes with several players and stores to put something together. I have vouched our Wednesday Night Modern on August 28th to raise funds for the Parnes family.

We will be collecting donations on behalf of the Parnes family leading up to the event. You do not have to be a Magic player to donate. If you cannot donate, instead please share this event and message. All aid is welcome and appreciated.

Thank you,
Judge Chris

Magic Judge Mock Tournament
Pandemonium is recruiting Magic players interested in helping out at our Magic Judge Mock Tournament.

Q: What is a Magic Judge Mock Tournament (MJMT)?
A: It is a judge conference designed to provide a zero fault training ground for judges looking to improve upon their skills.

Q: What happens at a MJMT?
A: Traditionally these are smaller events where skilled judges pretend to be players. These actors will generate errors in their "games" which will then lead to a judge being called to correct the error. Basically, actors will generate situations to develop and tests the skills of the other judges at the event.

Q: What's the point?
A: Well it's training. Judging is a skill intensive job that requires extensive training. This is one of the many ways judges come together to train.

Q: So why are you recruiting Magic players for a Judge conference?
A: We want to make this traditionally smaller event into a larger event. One of the goals of the MJMT is to help develop tournament management skills. These are things like using tournament software, conducting round turnovers, posting pairings, etc.

Q: What will players need to do at this event?
A: Play Magic. If you generate a Judge Call, then call a judge.

Q: What will it cost players to participate?
A: Nothing. Pandemonium will sponsor your participation in the event.

Q: What do we need to bring?
A: At least one constructed deck. Preferably Standard or Modern, but you can bring decks for both. You can even bring multiple decks.

Q: How long will the event be?
A: About 5 hours. We'll play 4 rounds each round lasting 45 minutes. After each round there will be a short debriefing slot for the judges.

Q: What do I get out of this?
A: Each player will receive 3 packs of Core Set 2020 to build a backup 30 card deck with. Each player that completes each round of the event will also receive a pack of Modern Horizons. On top of that you get to aid the judge community. Judges are often the unsung heroes that make the events we love to play in happen. Without them Magic would be a lot less fun. This is a great opportunity to give back to the judges by participating in an event that helps them develop and keep their skills sharp.

Q: I want to help. How do I apply?
A: Fill out this Google Form. https://forms.gle/vicfVNZVzQgsKpPZ9
If you are selected you will receive an email from Judge Chris with further instructions.

Commander 2019 Extravaganza
Join us for a fantastically fun Commander event!

4-man Commander pods fire on demand (every fourth person fires a new pod).

Entry: $45.00

Players will randomly select one of the new 2019 Commander decks from a box, and then play a game together.

BONUS: Everyone that enters automatically gets bumped up to Tier 1 of the Fall Commander League! (Details to come later)

First place wins a $30.00 Pando Gift Card!
Complete your achievement card and earn a Promo Pack. (While supplies last.)
It might even be a ALL FOIL Premium Promo Pack!!

UNIQUE RULES: Each player starts the game with 3 Legendary creatures in their Command Zone. Each is treated as a separate Commander.

I know what you're thinking, "What if I don't get the one I want?" These are all awesome decks. Chances are even if you didn't get the deck you wanted, you still got a bunch of Commander staples that will slot into another one of your Commander decks.
Aaaaaand, before the beginning of the game players will have the option to swap decks around as long as the trading parties all agree on the trade.

Players get to experience all of the new Commander decks interacting together. These are extremely fun and dynamic games. Often you'll walk away interested in a deck you didn't think you'd ever be interested in.

But wait there's more! I know what you're thinking again, "This sounds pretty fun, but what if I want to play in more than one pod? I don't want two of the same deck." Well, you can't get the same deck twice. When you pick your deck at random, you will be unable to select a deck you received in an earlier pod.

Note: The number of pods available during this event will be very limited.

M20 Sealed Deck League #2
This four week league begins on Monday, August 12th, will SKIP Sept 2nd (for LABOR DAY), and will end on September 9th.

A one Time Entry of $35 guarantees you the following:
4 weeks of League play.
A combine total of 9 Core Set 2020 packs.
An Event Playable Prerelease Promo.
A 500ct card storage box.
An Ultra Pro deck box of your color choice.
A 50ct set of Ultra Pro sleeves of your color choice.
A leader board with prize at the end of the league.
And weekly chances at fabulous prizes like packs of War of the Spark and promo cards!!

Sealed Deck Leagues are a relaxing casual atmosphere that bring the fun of Prereleases to your weekly play.

Arrive anytime each Monday between 5pm & 7pm for deck building & registration. Best to arrive early, so as to give yourself plenty of time to build and play test.
Round 1 begins at 7:00pm.
We play 3 rounds each week, and usually wrap up around 10pm.


How it works:

Your first week joining the league you will receive a Core Set 2020 Prerelease Kit. After registering your booster packs into your League Pool, you'll build a minimum 40 card deck from the cards in your League Pool. Then we'll have some fun! Each Monday we play three rounds of Magic. Win one of your three matches and you'll win a random Promo Card. Win two of your three matches and you'll win a pack of your choice from Standard (Ixalan through Core Set 2020). Win all three of your matches and you'll win two packs of your choice from Standard. These prizes are not entered into your League Pool. Instead, they go right into your personal collection. At the end of each Monday, Judge Rob will record your Points on the leader board.

Each Monday you will receive another War of the Spark booster pack to register and add to your League Pool.

Just like Prerelease, the Sealed Deck League uses the Continuous Construction Rule. This means that at any point between games or matches you may rebuild your minimum 40 card deck to be anything from slightly different to completely different. Any of the cards you have registered for your League Pool are available to you when rebuilding. There are plenty of friendly regulars at Pandemonium that are more than happy to help you build your decks. Each week you may open some cool stuff that makes you want to rebuild your deck.

Missed the first week? No problem at all. You can join in on any Monday League Night. You'll still receive all the League Packs.

Missed one of the other weeks? Still no problem. You're guaranteed all of your League packs. So, you'll received your pack the next week you arrive. You'll want to be here on the fourth week though. You cannot collect leader board prizes if you're not here at the time of prizing on the fourth week.


Again, entry is only $35 and guarantees you all this awesome stuff!

Bring a friend! Sealed Deck League is a very welcoming environment and a great way to get new players into Magic in a low stress, fun atmosphere!
