What’s more fun than a White Elephant party? A White Elephant that ends with some great games of Magic: The Gathering of course! Jump Start the holiday season with us in this fun take on the draft format. How does it work? Well…
Booster packs are set in the middle of the table. There are enough packs for each player to get two packs. Players take turns doing 1 of 3 actions: Take a pack from the middle, steal a pack from another player, or open a pack. Players cannot steal packs until all of the packs in the middle have been taken, and once a pack has been opened, it can only be stolen once, and then never again. Once a player has 2 open packs that can’t be stolen, they are no longer able to steal a pack.
