We are excited to once again offer our incredibly popular Prerelease Playmat Program to our StarCityGames.com In-Store Programs Organizers! These playmats can be offered as participation items, early registration incentives, prizes, or however you wish to bring in more fans and enhance the Prerelease experience in your store!
The In-Store Programs team strives to improve our events based on your feedback and new opportunities, and we have three exciting new announcements for Season Two Invitational Qualifiers!
- Invitational Qualifiers now only require one L1 judge to run. Please staff appropriately and get more judges as needed, but we understand sometimes a solid L1 is all you need.
- Table tents will no longer be included with IQs starting in July. Our table tents are durable enough that many organizers have asked us to stop sending them every time. Between that feedback and the existence of table tents from Wizards of the Coast, we will no longer send them by default with IQ kits.
- You can now have your store’s logo added to your Top 8 IQ playmats if you purchase an IQ Plus kit! Here are the details:
- This will be available for IQ Plus events scheduled for August through December. The event fee for IQ Plus events will be $400.
- IQ Plus events will only be approved within the first 5 days of the scheduling window for a given month.
- To ensure delivery on time, we must schedule, process payment, and receive logos for IQ Plus events no later than 5 days after we open scheduling for that month.
- Upon approval, we will provide you with a link to upload your logo, as well as details on file requirements.

July marks the beginning of Season Two for the SCG Tour with points and qualifications at Invitational Qualifiers going toward the SCG Invitational in December. This will also be your players’ first chance to win our new Invitational Qualifier Top 8 Playmat with art by Andrea Radeck. We appreciate everyone who has worked with us […]
Based on feedback from organizers, we are amending the IQ judge requirement. Effective immediately, you are no longer required to have an L2 or two L1 judges at your IQs. Organizers will again be able to host an IQ with a single L1 judge. Please use your best judgment and staff appropriately.
