[Sponsored] Supporting Your Local Game Store

Written by Weedmonkey on June 16, 2013

Friday Night Magic. Chances are, most of your early Magic days (or nights, as the case may be) were spent at one. It could've been enormous like Neutral Ground, or as small as a single shop run by a local player. You would've made friends, brewed together and slugged it out at some PTQs. You might've road tripped to some GPs, maybe even to Nationals.

It is the ability to create these kinds of relationships that make local game stores special.

I've been on Magic-League for some ten years now. In that time, I've met a dazzling array of characters - from infamous trolls, to pro players, to all-round nice guys. When I moved away from the city for university and the town didn't have a store, I was still able to play through Magic-League. Even now, despite not really having the time anymore to play all night long I still give back to Magic-League a staff member.

This is why I support Magic-League, and why you should support our sponsors.

MTGMadness is our rough equivalent to a local game store. MTGMadness has given us stability in prize distribution for tournaments, which as a staff member I certainly don't want to see lost. Like any local game store, their continued support for their local community (which is Magic-League) is dependent on people supporting them.

With Magic 2014's release rapidly approaching, now is the perfect time to show your support for MTGMadness by slapping some cash on the cards you'll need for upcoming tournaments. When you're supporting your local game store, why shop anywhere else?

So what are you waiting for? Get shopping!
