Join us for a 3-round Magic: The Gathering draft in a casual, friendly environment ideal for players of all experience levels, including beginners.

As we offer a pretty casual environment here at Rain City Games, each player will receive one draft booster pack for every round that they win. Additional prizing may include random draws for promo packs, cards or other goodies.
And if you register for the event at least 3 hours before it starts, you'll be eligible to win a special Early Bird prize, which is often a rare promo card or other desirable item!
All Rain City Games staff are fully vaccinated.
For your safety and ours, we request that all event participants be fully vaccinated.
Additionally we request that all participants wear a face mask over their nose and mouth for the duration of their visit.
We start our events as close to the listed start time as possible. A late event start means everyone else - players and staff alike - will be held late too, which isn't fair to anyone. As such, Rain City Games reserves the right to penalize and/or drop players who are late for events without possibility of a refund.
Attendees can cancel (and be refunded for) event registrations up to one hour prior to the listed event start time. If you need to cancel your event reservation, contact the store and we'll sort things out.
Drafts are a fun way to play Magic that can help level the playing field in a group of players with different experience levels.
In a draft, you select cards one at a time from three packs that are passed around the table of 6-8 players, and then build a 40 card deck out of the cards you've chosen. After your deck is complete it's time to play in a three round tournament against the other drafters! Each round consists of a best of three match.
While drafting is a skill you definitely need to learn, we keep it pretty casual and friendly here. If you haven't drafted in person before, here's a helpful video guide to the format. You can learn more about B.R.E.A.D (a mnemonic device many drafters find helpful that serves as a reminder of which cards to prioritize as you draft) here.
We will have Basic Lands for building, but you may want to bring sleeves, a playmat, and some kind of notepad or other device for counting your life total--or you can always pick up those items here in store!
