The 15th of April is this Saturday which means its time for the Magic the Gathering Open House. This is a really exciting free event that will help new players and people who are interested in joining the game learn the ropes. Each person will receive a free intro deck and will get a personal demonstration.
So why is this so exciting? Well the more players you have in an area, the easier it is to find a game for starters. However there are other benefits as well. Many professionals will agree that you cannot truly know your craft until you can teach it. This is a great opportunity for people to come in and teach new players, which means they gain experience in basics that they may have forgotten about. It really helps the development of expertise to explain even simple concepts in a way that a beginner can understand.
Everyone has that one friend who they want to play Magic but the friend isn’t even slightly interested. Well here is your chance to draw them in. The event is completely free, so they can’t complain that it’s too expensive. All they have to do is show up, and they receive cards to play with.
So come on down to the Geekery this Saturday and bring some friends!
