Alara Reborn Pre-Release Tournaments at Jim Hanley's Universe

Tuesday, March 31, 2009

Game Day at Jim Hanley's Universe continues to get better! Sanctioned tournaments continue every weekend at both our locations, and the weekly event at the JHU Underground at our Manhattan Location is shaping up to be the go-to event of the week!

Now, beginning April 25th, Jim Hanley's Universe will be holding Pre-Release and Launch Parties for the new Magic: The Gathering expansion Alara: Reborn!

In addition to getting your hands on this hotly anticipated conclusion to the Alara series almost a full week before anyone else, participants will also receive exclusive promo cards and other nifty prizes! The format for the Pre-Release tournament will be sealed and will consist of three Shards of Alara and three Alara Reborn booster packs; players construct a deck from their packs and at the end get to keep all of the cards they opened. Format for launch parties is to be announced.

Below are the dates and times of the Pre-Release and Launch parties, exclusively in New York at Jim Hanley's Universe!

Staten Island

Saturday 4/25 - PRE-RELEASE begins at 1:00pm
Saturday 5/02 - LAUNCH PARTY begins at 1:00pm

The JHU Underground at our Manhattan Location

Friday 5/01 - LAUNCH PARTY from 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm

If you can't make the pre-release event, don't worry! Both stores will have plenty of Alara Reborn boosters on their release date, April 30th!

Jeff

P.S. Don't forget, the scheduled Magic tournament at the JHU Underground fro April 17th will be held SATURDAY, APRIL 18th! See you there!

Jeffrey Lewis at the JHU Underground

We had an incredible turnout for last night's riveting lecture by Jeffrey Lewis on Watchmen. Jeffrey's in-depth analysis and exploration of Dave Gibbons and Alan Moore's masterpiece illuminated many aspects of the work in ways that even some Watchmen fanatics found fresh and surprising (check out photos from the event below). Last night's event was an excellent showcase of what we will be doing in the future at the JHU Underground at our Manhattan location. The JHU Underground will be New York City's premier location for panels, lectures, Q&As, presentations, gaming, and more! Each Friday night we have sanctioned Magic tournaments in the Underground, as well as upcoming tourneys for Universal Fighting System, Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and more! So stay tuned for updates on events going down at the JHU Underground, including the hotly anticipated Craig Yoe Secret Identity event, a Clay Enos art gallery and signing (details coming soon), and something else with a little... Flash.


Photos by Jeffrey O. Gustafson. The EXCLUSIVE photos can be seen individually here.

Update 3/26:

Youtube user clairedelune49 has posted a video with part of Jeffrey's lecture. Check it out below, or view it directly here!
