System, Pokemon, and Yu-Gi-Oh! tournaments at our Staten Island store and fully sanctioned Magic tournaments at the JHU Underground at our Manhattan store! Prizes include booster packs for the top finishers, with wins going towards each player's official national rankings for Magic.

We are happy to announce that Magic tournaments at the JHU Underground are now expanding to two nights a week! Beginning April 16th, we will be expanding to Thursdays in addition to the traditional Friday Night Magic!

Thursdays at the JHU Underground will be Standard Constructed tournaments!
Friday Night Magic at the JHU Underground will feature traditional Draft tournaments!

As usual, Draft tourneys are $15 to enter, and you get 3 booster packs on top of your entry into the hottest Magic tourneys anywhere in Manhattan. Standard Constructed tourneys cost $10 - you bring your own deck, with permitted expansions being 10th Edition, Lorwyn, Morningtide, Shadowmoor, Eventide, and Shards of Alara. (Running low? Don't Worry! JHU Carries a large selection of booster packs and starter decks from all the latest expansions.)

And in case you missed the announcement, Jim Hanley's Universe will be holding pre-release tournaments and release parties for Alara Reborn beginning April 25! Click here for more!

As always, for both days at the JHU Underground, doors open at 5:00pm and the games begin at 6:00pm. So come on down to Jim Hanley's Universe (both locations) for all things gaming in New York City!

P.S. Friday Night Magic for April 17 will be held Saturday, April 18 because of the Kirby Krackle/Tryptophan event Friday.
