Core Set 2020 Prerelease Weekend is right around the corner. This promises to be another great event here at Leisure Time Games, and we will be hosting multiple events beyond just the prereleases throughout the entire weekend. We'll be hosting the usual 6 prerelease events through the extended weekend (more on that below), as well as Core Set 2020 Open Play events where you can use a prerelease pack or a Planeswalker deck to have a good time playing magic. What's more, you can also pick up a box of boosters on prerelease weekend, and get the new buy a box promo, Rienne, Angel Of Rebirth.

Now, For Something Completely Different...


This time through, Wizards is trying something different. They are allowing stores to, if they wish, host a prerelease on Friday, instead of just on Saturday and Sunday. We here at Leisure Time Games are all over that, and have scheduled a Friday event along with the Saturday and Sunday events.

This is how the extended weekend schedule looks:


3:00 PM- Core Set 2020 Open Play Event

6:00 PM- Core Set 2020 Prerelease Sealed Tournament


All Day- Core Set 2020 Open Play Event

10:00 AM- Core Set 2020 Prerelease Sealed Tournament

2:00 PM- Core Set 2020 Prerelease Sealed Tournament

Open Play Event

During the prerelease weekend, if you'd like to play some Magic with the new set, but don't necessarily want to commit to playing in a tournament, you can enter our open play event. You can pick up a Core Set 2020 Prerelease Pack, or a Core Set 2020 Planeswalker Deck, and have a good time playing any other available player at whatever pace you feel comfortable with. You can pick up a prerelease pack for $25.99 plus tax, or a Planeswalker Deck for $12.99 plus tax.

Buy A Box

Anytime during the Core Set 2020 Prerelease Weekend, you can pick up a Core Set 2020 booster box. We give a 25% discount off our pack price when you pick up a full box. Also, when you pick up your box, you will also get a foil Rienne, Angel Of Rebirth while supplies last. This special promotional card is only available when you purchase a box of Core Set 2020 as you will not find it in booster packs, but is still considered a part of the set, and therefore is able to be used in all constructed format tournaments.

Supplies Are Limited

Unless otherwise specified, all listed sales prices do not include CA sales tax. So whatever it says, add 8.75% and there you go.
No returns without a receipt. Can you believe I've actually had people try to return things to me that they didn't buy from me? People, amirite?
Returns are store credit only. Insert pithy follow-up statement here.
All discounts based on multiple purchases will be on the lowest priced item. Because that's how I roll.
Special prices, special offers, discounts, and sale prices are not valid when redeeming store credit. Just because you hoarded it, doesn't mean it's worth more now.
All times, locations, events, hosts, and so forth are subject to change without notice. Stuff happens man.
Contact Leisure Time Games for any last minute changes. Believe me, it happens.
Sale Items, event entries, prize support, etc are all limited to stock on hand. You'd think I wouldn't have to say that, but there it is.
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. Yes, even you.
