The format this year will be 6 Rounds of Constructed and 6 rounds of draft, cutting to Top 8.

Even if you are not attending for the main event there will be many fun and interesting side events for players to play in as well as ongoing booster drafts throughout the day.

Everyone who books at least one night’s accommodation through Gamer’s Events will be receive a free draft coupon!

As well as all the TCG fun, a free buffet will be held on the Saturday evening after Round 6 of the National Championship. This is open to everyone who attends (Nationals players, side event players and spectators) to say thank you for your support!!

This will be followed by the 1st draft of the National Championships and an open casual gaming evening for everyone else, including the infamous Zapped Giants event.
