Gaming at Ratha Con

Comic books are awesome, but we know they're not your only hobby, so at Ratha Con we're planning on having some gaming available for the less diehard comic fans.

The Wizard's Guild is going to run two Magic: the Gathering booster drafts during the Con. We'll have sign-up sheets near admission for anyone who wants to participate, and it's first come, first serve, so sign up as soon as soon as you're able! The draft will be with Avacyn Restored, and if you want to learn more about the booster draft format, check out http://www.wizards.com/magic/tcg/resources.aspx?x=mtg/tcg/resources/formats-sanctioned#limited and the "What is Booster Draft?" section. Each draft will be $15 to enter, with all proceeds going to The Wizard's Guild.

There will also be a Dungeons and Dragons 1st edition game run during Ratha Con by John Pare. He will have premade characters set up and ready to go, so interested players can simply sit down and begin the adventure.

A comprehensive schedule of events, including the start time of these games and drafts, will be posted here as the Con gets closer, so stay tuned, and we'll see you all on the 26th!
