What Do I Need To Bring?
Aside from your Standard-legal deck, you must submit a filled-out Deck Registration Sheet at the beginning of the tournament. Please have this sheet completed before you arrive to ensure an on-time start and not risk a round one loss.
Will There Be Side Events?
Yes! Once the 3rd round has completed (probably around 2:00), we will open up side event options, including on demand drafts, standard constructed, and commander pods. Players who did not play in the tournament are welcome to join side events! Side events will no longer be started after 6:00pm.
Will There Be Vendors?
Yes! In addition to your own booth, we have invited several local stores to vend, including shops who specialize in buying and selling MtG singles. We have asked that they arrive well-stocked in Standard Block cards.
What Are The Food Options?
As with most hotel venues, outside food and drink is prohibited. The Sheraton will have grab-and-go food and drink options available for sale during the tournament. Stay tuned for a tentative menu.
What If The Event Sells Out?
We do anticipate that this event will sell out. If you go to register and discover that the event has sold out, please join the waitlist. As we are able, we will open up seats and let you know via email that a seat is available for you. If this happens, you will have 24 hours to register for that seat before we cancel the opportunity and move to the next player down the list.
The online waitlist will be voided the day before the tournament. If you are on the online waitlist and do not hear from us by the day before the tournament, you can assume that you will NOT be contacted with an available seat.
Day of the Tournament
We will create a brand new physical waitlist on the morning of the tournament, and you must be at the venue to join that list. Calls ahead will not be considered. We will start taking names at 9am when the doors open. Your placement on the online waitlist will have no bearing on this brand new waitlist. So if you want to take a chance to come in and hope for an open seat, you must arrive at the venue and officially register as a waitlister (we will have staff on hand to take your name). Once the players are seated for announcements, the judge staff will assess the attendees and determine if seats are available, and then call names from that new physical waitlist.
What If I Need To Cancel?
Players who cancel using the Eventbrite system (the same one you use to register) up to one day before the event will receive a full refund. Afterward, cancellations and no-shows to the event can contact I’m Board via email to request a refund, which will be issued within 7 days, less a 15% processing fee (resulting in a $42.50 total refund). Requests for refunds will no longer be accepted 30 days after the event.
What If I Have More Questions?
You can contact I’m Board via email and we will respond as soon as possible.
