#GPDFW travel info updated!

I recently had the pleasure of spending a day in the Ft Worth area doing site visits for the upcoming GPDFW as well as the Kaijudo Winter Championships I’m running there in just 10 short days.  While there I took some notes about traveling to and from the airport to the GP site for those of you coming in from out of town.  There are a few reasonably priced ways to get from the airport to downtown fort worth and if you’ve got time and don’t mind waiting for a shuttle to train connection, you can get there as cheaply as $2.50 and have a comfortable seat and free wifi and power the whole way down!

Check out my travel page for #GPDFW for a step by step process on how to get to downtown fort worth!



#GPDFW Playmat!

I’ve had the image for a little while, and the mats are in production!  Here is the image!


The card is Gift of Immortality and the art is by Matt Stewart.  It features a pretty sweet legionnaire image and lots of doodly space (yay!)



These playmats will be given out onsite on friday on a first come first served basis to the first 700 players. Paying for VIP service is the ONLY way to guarantee your mat outside of showing up at doors open at 2pm at the Fort Worth Convention center on December 6th.

I’ll be pushing the preregistration page live tomorrow!




GP DFW Side events are posted!

The Side event list has been posted for GP DFW. I’ve tweaked a few things from our regular line up and added a couple “new” things. The Mini Master event we have been running on Friday night is moving to Saturday at 1pm. The event will be free for any main event players who have dropped, $5 for anyone else! Take a little of that rough start out by playing in a free mini master!

I’ve replaced the friday night Mini Master with a Sealed event with a great first place! The winner (and a friend) will be invited to attend our “VIP” Dinner on Saturday night after the main event wraps up. Joining us will be our featured artists RK PostClint Cearley andh Chuck Lukacs PLUS Pro Tour Hall of Famer: Luis Scott-Vargas!

The Popular “happy hour’ is back with discounted pickup events for Saturday morning into early afternoon, and we’ve added a new style of pickup event that’s been picking up some steam at other events… “Sealed Draft”.  Players start with 3 packs the open, draft 3 more packs to add to those and play! only $25 “Stay Tuned” for a DFW travel guide and see you in Fort Worth!
