Players participating in tournaments at Magci: The Gathering: Innstrad Pre-Release Events, which will be all over the world this weekend on September 24th and 25th, will receive (while supplies last) an exclusive double-faced promo card, “Mayor of Avabruck/Howlpack Alpha, as well as an “Achievement Card.”
Those who attend the pre-release events will have a choice of playing with the newest cards in three different tournament formats.  In the “Sealed Deck” format each player receives six Innistrad booster packs to use for building a deck. In the “Booster Draft” event players will receive three Innistrad booster packs to draft with.  In the “Two-Headed Giant Sealed” events, each two-player team gets eight Innistrad booster packs to use in building a deck.
In addition some locations may offer “Open Dueling” events for new players.  "Open Dueling" players each receive 1 Innistrad Intro Pack and the promo card (while supplies last).  "Open Dueling" participants can use their Intro Pack cards to play against each other, as well as pre-release tournament players who are between matches, and who should be encouraged to help teach the "Open Dueling" participants the finer points of playing Magic.
The highly anticipated Innistrad set of 264 cards introduces “double faced” cards to Magic: The Gathering, as well as a number of new characters and monsters such as vampires and werewolves (which is where the “Mayor of Avabruck” promo card comes in handy).  For details on the Magic: The Gathering: Innistrad release see “Innistrad.”
