Countdown to the Season Two Invitational!

Get Ready for the 2017 Season Two Invitational Weekend!

While Magic: The Gathering players throughout the world have been competing to qualify for a coveted seat at the 2017 Season Two Invitational, and Big Lick Entertainment - one of Virginia's premier festival and concert organizers – have been hard at work improving the overall Invitational Weekend experience.

Today, I’m excited to peel back the curtain a bit and give everyone a glimpse at some of what you can expect at the 2017 Season Two Invitational!

On Thursday, November 30th from 6-10pm, and Rodeo Grande welcome all fans for a special pre-Invitational gathering featuring Magic: The Gathering team trivia (starting at 7pm), Meet and Greets with some of the game's most entertaining personalities and more! Make plans to join us for a relaxing evening of good food, good friends and good fun before the big weekend begins.

When the 2017 Season Two Invitational venue opens its doors the following morning, attendees will be greeted by a number of familiar faces, including those belonging to some of the Magic: The Gathering’s premier vendors, artists and cosplayers!

However, for the 2017 Season Two Invitational weekend, we’ve expanding these offerings to also include a number of on-site Virtual Reality computer simulators courtesy of our friends at VR Center!

Of course, an SCG Tour event wouldn't be an SCG Tour event without the chance to acquire some sweet swag, and 2017 Season Two Invitational weekend attendees will be amongst the first to be able to get their hands on all-new SCG Tour 2017 Season Two exclusive playmats featuring Hostage Taker, Oblivion Stone, and Doomsday!
