Have you ever wanted to learn Magic the Gathering, but don’t know where to start or where to go? Has it been years since you picked up your last Magic deck, and you’d like to get back into the game? Then Magic Open House may be worth attending for you and anyone else you know who might love Magic!


First, let’s explain what Magic Open House actually is. Magic Open House is a free, casual event that takes place at local game stores right around when a new set comes out, and is specifically designed to welcome new and returning players to Magic. All Magic Open House events take place on a weekend that’s announced well in advance. For example, the next Magic Open House for Rivals of Ixalan is on January 6th and 7th, 2017. You can check the Wizards of the Coast store and event locator to find a participating local game store near you, and see if they’re holding a Magic Open House. If you’re unsure, it doesn’t hurt to contact them and ask!


Every person who attends is given at least one free, mono-colored 30 card welcome deck. Welcome decks are a great starting tool for beginners, and each one does a great job demonstrating the strengths and weaknesses of each color. They’re also well balanced against one another, and the interactions between cards are kept as clean and uncomplicated as possible. You can even combine two Welcome decks to create a 60 card deck, which can be fun to show beginners how different color combinations influence gameplay.
