Leagues run for seasons consisting of 10 to 12 weeks with participants earning points through game play. Points are earned via actions like eliminating opponents or completing an in-game "achievement". The ways to earn points change from season to season, but our friendly organizers are happy to explain them to you.
Players will be randomly placed into pods of 3 to 4 players (subject to change based on participation) and given a league scoresheet that they MUST fill out. The scoresheet is used to track points scored by individual players. Failure to correctly fill out and return a sheet at the end of play will result in players scoring zero points for that match. Forest City Ancients plays two league matches per night. League matches have a 60 minute time limit followed by 4 turns per remaining player. We encourage players to keep game play moving at a reasonable pace.
Participating in the league is free! Just show up on a Thursday night starting at 630pm and enjoy playing Commander with other folks. The champion for each season gets possession a limited-edition play mat as their prize, to be defended from season to season! We value the social aspect of getting together with friends (both new and old) to play Magic in a setting where both casual and competitive players can enjoy themselves.
We have a few rules that participants must follow:
