Pre Releases are the most popular MTG events locally and are surely the best way to Celebrate the launching of a new set. At Forbidden Power we organise 3 Pre-Release events in total for every new set as follows:

  • Saturday at Midnight
  • Saturday at 1400h
  • Sunday at 1000am

You can participate in as many of these events as you like. The store offers special offers to anyone who participates in all three events, read more below.


With the Release of every new Magic the Gathering set, players are given the opportunity to test their skills using the new cards, a week prior to their official launch.

The format for a Pre-Release Event is called Sealed Deck, this means that you will get to play with the cards you open from sealed mtg product you purchase on the day! Upon payment of the entry fee, you will be given a pre-release pack containing 6 booster packs of the new edition. You will then have to crack the packs, sort the cards, select the best ones and build a minimum 40 card deck with which to battle your way to victory.

Here is a video which can better explain what a Pre-Release is all About:
