Happy birthday, Magic the Gathering! That's right, Magic the Gathering is celebrating it's 25th birthday this year and where else would be better than at Gen Con!

Magic made its debut at Gen Con 1993 and has been enchanting gamers ever since. It has had more than 100 booster releases, printings in eleven different languages and more than 20,000 unique cards.

They will be celebrating in a big way at the Best Four Days In Gaming with a fantastic range of events, celebrating the longevity of this fan favourite. Here's the lineup...

  • Magic’s 25th Birthday Championship- Eight qualifier events, open to all attendees, will take place over the weekend that will culminate in a Sunday eight-player event which will feature Beta boosters from Magic’s first year of existence.
  • Magic Panel- Attendees can learn about Magic’s history and glimpse its future at a ticketed, free panel. Celebrate Magic’s 25th birthday with its creators! Come join us and members of Magic’s R&D team as they talk about their personal history with the game and where they see it in the next 25 years. Get a look behind the scenes at Wizards and learn about their journey from being fans of the game to creating it. Stick around for a Q+A session with our guests!
  • Multi-Player Events- The more players, the more fun! Multiplayer events will include Battlebond 2HG, Wizards Tower, Trios, and Grand Melee. These are great for parent & child teams!
  • Constructed Events- Great prizes await at Standard, Modern, Legacy, and Vintage events.
  • On-Demand Programming- Round-the-clock Magic including Core 2019 Drafts, Chaos Drafts, 2HG Drafts, Commander play, and TURBO TOWN events.
  • Weekend-Long Surprises- The Wizards of the Coast team will have some surprises in store all-weekend, and gamers should keep on the lookout for giveaways on social media, around the convention centre, and in Magic’s play areas.

I'm super excited about the celebration and will be on the lookout for the above-mentioned surprises at the show.
