What’s happening at Grand Prix Lille
We’ve packed as many tournaments into the schedule as we can. There is certainly something for everyone. From the 1000€ Standard Championship on the Sunday to the Commander Arena that takes place across the whole weekend.
If the main event at Grand Prix Lille isn’t enough to quench your thirst for the Standard format make sure you sign up for €1000 Standard Championship. Prizes will be provided by the Card Traders that we have at the event. Also, there are pick up events running all the time. You can enter and, as soon as we have 8 players, you will be enjoying the Standard format.
Innistrad Block Drafts
These will be available all weekend long as a pick up event. And to show that we are listening to our customers we are using a new sign up system for the first time at a Grand Prix. When you enrol for your event you will be given a pager. When your event is ready to start, your pager will flash and beep, alerting you to go to the pick area to start your tournament. You can play with both English and French product.
Half Price Events on Saturday Morning
Obviously we want you all to enjoy the main event at Grand Prix Lille. But for those that want to play in something slightly smaller we have a great offer for you. HALF PRICE PICK UP EVENTS!
Until 3pm on Saturday we will be charging half of the normal price for all the pick up events listed here. As soon as we get 8 players in these events we will call you to the pick up area to start your event.
Legacy and Vintage
Saturday is definitely Eternal day as both the Vintage and Legacy Championships are scheduled then. They are staggered so that, if you aren’t doing so well in the Vintage event, you can drop and enter the Legacy to see if you can improve you luck. Both events are supported with prizes from the Card Traders present at Grand Prix Lille.
But that’s not all. Throughout the Grand Prix, both Legacy and Vintage will be running as pick up events. Just sign up with the public event scorekeepers and, as soon as we have 8 players, we’ll start your tournament.
