New Article: Advice on Drafting
In recent times, Jordan Gallant has become one of our top players.  He placed second in the top 8 of the last UAE Nationals, and has been winning or placing highly in most tournaments since.  In this new article, he shares with us some basic drafting advice (for both booster and Rochester drafts) that can help you get started on the same road he's taken.  Read more…

Odyssey Prerelease is September 27, 2001
The next big block in the Magic saga is Odyssey.  350 new cards should spice up game play and shake up the Standard environment.  We'll be kicking off our Odyssey tournaments with a sealed deck prerelease.  Each player will receive one Starter deck and two booster packs from which to build a deck.

May 26, 2001
Apocalypse Prerelease & Street Date is June 7, 2001
The date for the Apocalypse Prerelease is set to Thursday, June 7. This is slightly later than originally planned, but I feel this date will enable the most players to attend without fear of exams or other activities interfering with their plans.

The street date of Apocalypse is set to June 7 for the UAE. Sealed boxes and unopened boosters will be available for purchase at the normal price of Dhs. 400 per box and Dhs. 12 per booster.

Distribution of Nationals Prizes
Prize winners from Nationals will be able to collect their Apocalypse prizes at this tournament. If you received Apocalypse prizes at Nationals and will not be at the tournament, please contact me to arrange an alternate delivery of your prize.

Additionally, a few players from Abu Dhabi still have not received their prizes from Nationals. If this applies to you, you can pick up your prizes at the tournament, or contact me to arrange delivery of your prize.

New look coming for Web site!
We are putting the final touches on a whole new look for our Web site. You may have noticed that the site www.gamesnet.org now redirects you to our new site at www.gamesnet-live.com. This is part of our update plan that will have a much more effective site available for your viewing pleasure in the next few days.

With the new look will come whole new sections for more of your favorite games. First in line will be Dungeons and Dragons, followed soon by WarHammer and Mage Knight: Rebellion. If you have other games that you would like featured on our site, just contact us and we'll see what we can do. We already have several new articles ready to post at the same time as the new site.

Expect the new site to go live on or about June 1.

The Nationals entry fee will be Dhs. 50.  This includes the cost of the six boosters for the two Rochester Drafts (three boosters for each draft).

New Info on Europeans and Worlds!
Wizards has finally posted some new information on Europeans and Worlds.  We've got the essential information summarized for you right here.

BeatDown now in stock!
Despite the fact that Wizards still haven't gotten their stock of BeatDown in yet, we've gone to extraordinatly lengths to get you your fix!  We now have a small quantity of BeatDown boxes in stock.  They will be on sale as of today at a price of Dhs. 125 each.

April 5, 2001
7th Edition and more now in stock!
We've just received our initial shipment of 7th Ed., and it's looking fantastic!  The artwork is gorgeous, and the cards are just what you'd expect.  The packs consist of one rare, 3 uncommons, 10 commons, and one basic land.  They will be priced initially like our other packs.

We've also received Invasion and Planeshift Fat Packs.  A Fat pack consists of either a starter and three boosters (for Invasion) or six boosters (for Planeshift), the novel of the same set, a card encyclopedia for that set, and two premium foil cards.  Until the end of Nationals, they're available at a special price -- 20% below our normal retail price!

Unfortunately, BeatDown boxed sets are back-ordered at Wizards.  (This means that even Wizards are out of stock on these items.)  We're doing our best to obtain a supply of them from alternate sources.  We'll keep you informed.

New Info on UAE Nationals
We've posted some preliminary information on UAE Nationals 2001, including information on the Last-Chance Qualifier, the schedule and formats, and the current list of qualified players.  We're also starting a section on information for Europeans and Worlds; as soon as we get new info, we'll post it for you.

Updated BattleTech Section
We've vastly expanded our BattleTech section by incorporating material from the Adrian Spoint Web site.  Much of the general material (not specific to the Adrian campaign) can be access directly now, and the sections with information specifically about Adrian are now also part of the main site.  The full details can be found in our navigation bar to the left.

New Tournament Policies
We've developed a few new policies that relate to how we run tournaments.  First, we're implementing modified double-elimination instead of single-elimination for all tournaments.  Second, we're running a Rare Selection Process to avoid rare-drafting.  Read the full details here.

Updates Coming...
We're getting ready for some major upgrades and updates to our Web site.  Look for huge expansions to our BattleTech section, and all-new Dungeons and Dragons section, an open bulletin board, and lots more. We're even planning on working a chat room and email server into our site.  If you have any suggestions about changes or special services you'd like us to offer, email us and we'll see what we can do.
