Eternal Central is proud to partner with Star City Games to announce the Eternal Central Old School 93-94 tournament at SCGCON 2019. This year’s SCGCON Summer is being held in Roanoke, Virginia (USA). This cosponsored Old School 93-94 tournament will be held on Thursday, June 6, 2019, at 11am, and will be a charity event to raise funds for the Angels of Assisi Community Pet Clinic and Adoption Center.
Tournament Entry & Rules
– The Eternal Central Old School 93-94 tournament will be held on Thursday, June 6, 2019, at 11am (we will open at 10am for deck reg and card signing; please plan on showing up sometime between 10:15-10:45am).
– Tournament structure and length will be SWISS PLUS 1. This event will be capped at 64 players, which normally calls for 6 rounds, so this will be 6+1 (a total of 7) total 50 minute rounds of Swiss. There will be no draws allowed, and at the end of 50 minutes if there is a tied match both players will do a sudden death Chaos Orb flipping contest (complete details in our Old School 93-94 rules here). As usual, play a fun deck, imbibe, and have a blast with friends new and old!
– The Old School 93-94 tournament will observe the Banned & Restricted List found in the rules on the EC Old School 93-94 rules page here. This page always has a complete list of deck construction rules, sets allowed, errata, and the most up to date Banned & Restricted List. As usual, appropriate reprints like Collector’s Edition, Revised, 5th Edition (all with same art/original borders) are allowed. This is an unsanctioned event run by EC, and we heartily support CE/IE.
Decklists, Pairings, and Social Media
– Decklists are required for this event, and by decklists we mean a clear photo of your deck + sideboard. Please send all decklist photos to firstname.lastname@example.org BEFORE the event begins.
– The official hashtag on Twitter and Facebook for this event will be #SCGCON, so please use that when snapping pics and updates from the event.
– Prizes will again be awarded by Eternal Central and Star City Games, and will be Old School cards in flavor and nature. As usual, this is a tournament for fun, and not ‘EV,’ and these will not pay off your monthly bills.
– Tournament prizes will be continue to evolve, and we will be awarding fewer prizes for tournament finish, and more prizes for Most Creative Decks and the like. The Most Creative Deck category will focus on players who focus on the fun and creative aspects of deckbuilding.
Tournament Site Logistics & Preregistration (Required)
– This event is an unsanctioned casual event, cosponsored by Eternal Central and Star City Games, and is run off-site of the normal tournament venue(s). Star City Games has done great working finding a suitable venue to host this, so please be respectful of your surroundings at all times, and of all players and staff. The venue for Old School will be in downtown Roanoke:
202 Social House
202 Market St SE
Roanoke, VA 24011
We have the upstairs private area reserved for this event. 202 Social House is located in downtown Roanoke, and features a full sports bar-type food food and drink menu, with draft beer, wine, and cocktails as well. There is also an Italian restaurant (La Tavola) in the same location for more dining options as the day goes on.
– Entry fee will be a non-refundable $25 this year, with all proceeds donated to the Angels of Assisi Community Pet Clinic and Adoption Center. This tournament is open to all participants 21+ years of age, but you must preregister through SCG using this ticket checkout. This year’s event will have a hard cap of 64 players, so if you plan to attend, please get pre-registered ASAP to reserve your space.
– Please be respectful of the venue, the cards, and the people around you, or you will be asked to leave (and unwelcome at future events). Old School is predicated on treating others with respect, and enjoying the people you play with. Don’t take yourself too seriously, or you’re doing it wrong.
– Star City Games will also be hosting a free MTG Team Trivia Contest in the same venue (202 Social House) immediately following the conclusion of the Old School event, at 7pm. So hang out and relax, grab some more food and drink if you’d like, and have a great time!
