Welcome Digimon Tamers!
To celebrate the release of Rising Winds (RB-01), let’s enjoy what the set has to offer with a special draft event! But how do you draft in Digimon?
-Players are divided into groups of 4. Then, each player in a pod will get 6 Booster Packs.
-Boosters are opened 1 at a time. Each player will look at the cards in their booster, pick 1 card from that pack, and then pass the rest of the pack to the player on their left. When there are no more cards to pick from, players will open the next pack, pick a card, and then pass the rest to the player on their right. It’s a good idea to keep your cards face-down, and keep your choices a secret from your opponents!
-Repeat the previous step until there are no more packs to open, or cards to pick. Now you’ll start deck building! In a limited format like Sealed or Draft, the rules for deck building and game play are a little different. for example, your main deck must be 40 cards, instead of 50 (your egg deck can still have anywhere from 0 to 5 cards in it), and color requirements for digivolution are ignored, which can open up a lot of exciting combos you wouldn’t normally see.
4:00pm – In person sign ups begin for anyone that didn’t register through our website. This is also a great time to order some food and drinks, as well as get to know the other participants in the event!
4:30pm – Drafting begins! We’ll start the draft promptly at 4:30, so it’s a good idea to get here with enough time to make sure you’re not late. Once drafting begins, players will have 60 minutes to draft and build their decks, so quick thinking will give you a big advantage during this portion of the event.
5:30pm – Round 1 begins! There will be 3 rounds, during which, players will have 50 minutes to compete in a best-2-out-of-3 match. If you’re game goes past the 50 minute time limit, you and your opponent will have 3 turns collectively to decide a winner, otherwise the game is a draw. If you had any games you still needed to play to complete your match, they are also treated as draws.
Around 8:30pm – Prizes will be awarded! All participants can expect to get at least 1 Booster Pack, and can win additional packs depending on how they performed in the event, as well as a Missing Pawn card to use during our Piecing It Together events on Sundays!
