Wizards SEA invites all aspiring Planeswalkers this April to explore the world’s greatest trading card game, Magic: The Gathering. From guided learn to play sessions, meet and greet cosplayer activities, and a new 2v2 player format that pairs new and experienced players into formidable allies, there is something for everyone keen on immersing into the fantasy world of Magic over two weekends. 

In conjunction with the upcoming launch of its latest set, March of the Machine, a series of fun carnival-styled activities will be available at two selected Local Game Stores from 8-9 April to introduce players to the popular strategy-based card game. Activities are free and pre-registration is recommended on Magic: The Gathering’s Facebook event.

This will lead up to the Pre-release weekend from 14-16 April, where new and seasoned players alike can be the first to try the new set, ahead of the official set release date, 21 April 2023. 

Kickstart your Planeswalker Journey with a Fun Carnival – 8 & 9 April
