We’re extending our $99 box sale to Saturday. We’ve even got more buy a box promos to give out, so if you missed out on our (somewhat small) initial stock of Mirrodin Besieged, swing by and grab some Monday!
Until then, you can also join our Saturday Release Party in Greenfield. Registration at 11 am, event at noon. Sealed deck, $30 entry, prize support will be in store credit (if we run out of Besieged boosters) or Besieged boosters if we have enough to go ’round.
See you soon!
It’s that time again! Time for $99 Booster Box day at Game Universe!
This Friday only you can grab a box of the new set, Mirrodin Besieged for only $99. In addition, if you’re one of the first 20 customers through the door at either location, we’ll give you a free Buy a Box Promo Mirran Crusader card. Sweet.
But wait! There’s more …

Game Universe Greenfield will host a Grand Prix Trial (GPT) on January 8, 2011. Format is Extended.
At least 1 third-round bye at Grand Prix–Atlanta 2011 is offered at each Trial, based on attendance: 8 – 32 will get 1 third-round bye, 33 – 64 = 2, 65 – 128 = 4. Attendance is capped at 70 participants. Entry fee is $15.
Prize support will be determined by attendance. If 8+ players means we offer a Jace vs Chandra Japanese dual deck to first place, and if we get 16+ players, we’ll offer a From the Vault: Relics as a prize to first place. If we hit 32+ players, we’ll pay out both of those products to first and second, and store credit to the top 8 players. As always, there will be door prizes and other goodies given out to participants throughout the event.
You must register your deck to participate in this event. You should fill out this deck registration sheet before you arrive to save time, but we’ll have some on site if you forget. Remember: most decks that are legal in Standard are legal in Extended, so grab your FNM deck and swing by!
This is a 24K, REL Competitive event, overseen by a DCI Judge, so bring your game face and good luck!
