Something For Everyone

Star City Games® Open Trials offer newer storeowners a great way to jump-start in-store Magic: The Gathering Organized Play, and veteran retailers a low-cost way to enhance their existing event offerings!

The Open Trial Advantage

Flexibility

Open Trials were designed to be easily adapted to fit the needs of your local Magic: The Gathering community. Open Trials can be held on any day or night of the week, at any Rules Enforcement Level and as either a stand-alone event or as an enhancement to another Magic: The Gathering tournament.

Each Open Trial kit contains a voucher that can be redeemed for free entry into an upcoming SCG Open or Classic for the winner, plus loads of additional prizes than can be awarded in whichever way you choose to do so.

Marketing

As part of each Open Trial package, both your event and store will be advertised within our Star City Games Event Finder. This popular resource reminds your regular players about each of your upcoming Open Trials and Invitation Qualifiers, while helping new players discover your store for the first time!

If you Tweet about your Open Trial using the hashtag #SCGOpenTrial, we’ll often help boost the signal by re-Tweeting your message to our tens of thousands of Twitter followers!

Sales

When you host an Open Trial, you will likely see many regular and new players show up at your store to participate in your event. This is an ideal opportunity to buy, sell and trade sizeable quantities of Magic: The Gathering singles, and sell lots of sealed product, supplies, snacks and drinks!
