This episode is all about helping casual players manage their first tournament of each type. Starting with Prereleases then moving into FNM, PPTQ, and finally a Grand Prix or SCG Open, we’ll give you some general tips for how to prepare and what to expect at each level. Whether you’ve never been to a tournament in your life or you’re a regular FNM player that wants to attend your first GP, we’ve got you covered!
This may sound like a lot of information, but don’t worry! We’re sharing all this with you because it’s all stuff that we, in our many years of attending various flavors of tournaments, have screwed up or run into in the past and we really just want to save you the hassle. Most of it is relatively simple and seems pretty obvious…until the one time you don’t think about it. “Know where you’re going.” “Make sure you know the format you’ll be playing.” “Find out how to not starve to death.” Just try to keep these seemingly obvious things in the back of your mind!
Come join us in the future! The show will be live on Thursdays around 8pm(ish) Eastern time on twitch.tv/themanapool
