Magic The Gathering


Last year the Gathering put on an event that we felt was similar to the much loved Nationals. This year we are running the “Irish Nationals” again on the 23rd of June in Thomond Park, Limerick as part of its annual Conclave. Last year’s event was a great success and we are sure that this year’s event will show improvements! 

The “Irish Nationals” will consist of a two day event, featuring three rounds of standard and three rounds of draft, and then cut to top 16 for day two. Day two consists of three rounds of draft then cut to top eight, which will be standard. This is reminiscent, though not identical, to original Nationals structure though we are sure it will not disappoint! 

The winner of the “Irish Nationals” will gain a flight voucher to a European GP/PTQ, as agreed upon by both the TO and winner. Trophies will be provided for both the winner and the runner up, with booster prizes to be given out as normal to players based on their standings. 

The cost of this event will be €40 and includes the price of entry into Conclave for the weekend, which by itself is €20! If you are not lucky enough to make the second day then fret not, there should be piles of things for you to do including but not limited to- 
Side Events

Booster drafts and Standard events can be run on demand, also on Saturday if there are people for it.
We will be running a GPT on the Sunday for those that did not make day two. The details of which will be decided closer to the event. 

If tired of card games on the Sunday we are in talks with the electronics store CEX who want to bring in up to thirty consoles with them. They will be running events all weekend. 

There will be a fine collection of both board games and people playing them all weekend. Ranging from classics such as Settlers of Catan and Talisman to more contemporary games such as Pandemic and Zombie dice! 

I would hope to continue the tradition that Thomas Ralph ran for many years at Nationals of “The Magic Quiz” on the Saturday night. Here you can expect questions to both delight and infuriate even the most seasoned veteran. Many conventions have pub quizzes but few can be say that theirs will be in a venue as exciting as Thomond park. The bar will be open until late for all those that wish to attend or just hang out after with a few games!

Sunday Evening 
This year Limerick is Ireland’s Capital of Culture while last year a BBQ in Nancy Blakes became the scene of our top 8 this year by cutting three rounds we plan to link in with other Capitol of Culture events to have a great send off to the weekend. We hope to see you there as this year it promises to be a fantastic event!

Team Event


Teams make competitive Magic extremely fun in my opinion, you share in both the elation of winning and the bitter defeat of a loss. This year we are proud to include a team event for our Irish Nationals. This has been included in the price of entry, so why not sign up?!

Players may arrange themselves into groups of three at player registration. Each one of these groups may represent anything they wish, be it their play group, the college society that they play in or the shop from which they come from etc.

The winners of the team event will be the team with the largest collective points after day one, that is three rounds of standard followed by three founds of draft. We were considering basing it on the two day event but this way people who did not make it through two day two can be included.

Prizes for the team event will be customized “Conclave 2014” Polo shirts and a trophy to display in your club for a year. We aim to announce the winners during the quiz on the Saturday night. As always we endeavor to add value for your money and ensure that everyone has an amazing time at the Irish Nationals, so stay tuned for additional updates!

Returning once again to Conclave Yu Gi Oh which has shown some of the largest CCG turnouts is sure to be just as successful this year.
