Magic: the Gathering Unstable Draft

  • The Treehouse board game cafe (map)

Mad?! They said I was mad?! I'll show them all! I'll... I'll experiment with impossible Contraptions, overload the board with Squirrels, and combine hosts and augments with reckless abandon! Then we'll see who's "Unstable"! Bwahahahahaha! Ahem.

With over 20 million fans worldwide, Magic is the world's most popular strategy card game. Over the course of a match, players cast devastating spells, summon creatures of legend, and wield powerful artifacts to best their opponents in a battle of the wits.

At a Magic draft event, eight players each open three booster packs, picking cards and passing them around until they can each build a 40 card deck. Then, in a mini tournament of three matches, players battle it out to win more prize packs! 

New players are welcome, of course, but be warned - Unstable is not your typical Magic set! The cards are not legal in tournaments, and often do very silly things. For a couple of examples, see below; don't say we didn't warn you!

Entry to this new-player-friendly event costs £15, which gets you three packs' worth of cards, at least one prize bonus pack*, and a soft drink of your choice at the bar.

*Players who are placed 1st to 4th will receive two additional booster packs each; 5th to 8th place will receive one.
