What Else Can I Do?
In addition to the main Prerelease Tournament event, some locations may offer additional public events. Other product mixes are allowable as long as each player in the event receives the same number and type of packs.
Open Dueling — Open Dueling is a casual format primarily for players not participating in the main Prerelease Tournament. Open Dueling players receive 1 Scars of Mirrodin Intro Pack chosen at random and 1 Wurmcoil Engine promo card (while supplies last). Open Dueling players play against other Open Dueling participants as well as main tournament players who are between matches. After an Open Dueling participant has played five matches, upon confirmation of the results by the event organizer that player will receive one complimentary booster pack provided by the organizer as a prize.
Team Events — Playing with friends as a team is a fun and exciting way to enjoy Magic. For Two-Headed Giant events, the recommended product mix is 8 Scars of Mirrodin booster packs per team.
