GP Krakow 2015 My first Grand Prix 17 Mar 2015 News by: Kevin

Coming to a Grand Prix for the first time is an awesome experience. We at Bazaar of Moxen would like you to enjoy each and every part of it, and we believe that you'll enjoy it even more if you know what to expect:

  • What time do you need to arrive?
  • What will happen?
  • What should you do?

We felt like we should make all of this crystal clear to all of you.

 

 

 

Registration

 

 

Everybody wants Grand Prix to start and finish on time. To give us the maximum chances to achieve this:

 

There will be NO REGISTRATION on Saturday morning!

 

Therefore, we strongly recommend you register online: This entitles you to additional benefits and guarantees you will play. Indeed, Grand Prix get bigger and bigger and sometimes, the maximum capacity is reached way before the last day!

 

If the maximum attendance is not reached, online registration will remain open until Thursday evening, 23h59. Past this moment, it will still be possible to register at the venue on Friday. The venue will open at 10:00, at the time we start the first Grand Prix Trials that allow you to win byes for the Grand Prix.

 

If you registered online, you do NOT need to come to see us. You will be automatically added in the tournament. This is another benefit of registering online: No queuing on site!

 

 

 

The Seat All Players

 

 

At 08:55 on Saturday, judges will post the Seat All Players. This is a list of all the players and the number of the table they should report at.

This allows us to perform a few administrative actions before we can start playing Magic

 

 

 

Finding your Seat

 

Seat All Players will be posted on "Pairing Boards" spread everywhere in the room and outside as well. You need to report to the board that matches the initial of your Last Name.

 

Good to know:

  • There are two columns on each sheet, so check both!
  • If you can't find your last name, check your first name. Indeed, they may be switched in the global database.

After performing these two checks, if you still can't find yourself, come to see us at the Main Stage.

 

 

Checking your byes

 

If you have byes, check the presence of 1B, 2B or 3B next to your name. This indicates the number of byes you have in the event. If you disagree with it, come to see us at the Main Event Stage.


Good to know:

  1. Wizards of the Coast is providing us the OFFICIAL bye list for the event. The only way we can deviate from this list requires you show us your personal page on the Planeswalker Points website. Make sure you know your password.
  2. If you have won a GP Trial, make sure it has been reported by your local Tournament Organizer. If he didn't perform that simple action, we will not be able to give you the byes. Again, showing us the Planeswalker Points page stating you won the Trial is a sufficient proof.

If you have subscribed to the Sleep-In Special or the VIP Experience, we'd like to remind you that you are ultimately responsible for making sure you have the correct number of byes. We cannot be held responsible for a discrepancy between what you think and the file we're sent by Wizards of the Coast. Again, check the Planeswalker Points website to make sure your Grand Prix will be perfect.

 

Note: Since the website requires a login and pass, we cannot access it for you. You are the only one able to login there.

 

 

For the vast majority, everything will be perfect. So it's time to go to your seat for the Players' Meeting!

 

 

 

The Players' Meeting

 

Several things will happen, in order:

  1. Signing the Media Consent Form
  2. Distribution of the goodies
  3. Collection of your deck list

 

 

Media Consent Forms

 

  • Judges will distribute a "Media Consent Form" to each of you. This is a legal document that we encourage you to read by clicking here.
  • You will need to fill out and sign this document. We want to stress that signing it is mandatory, since it also contains acceptation of the way prizes are distributed at the Grand Prix. If you do not want to sign it, you will not unfortunately not be able to participate in the Grand Prix Main Event.
  • Also, if you are a minor in your country, you will need to have it signed by your parent or a legal guardian. in such a case, we encourage to print it at home and bring it with you.


 

The Goodies

 

Judges will then distribute the goodies, including the FOIL Promo Griselbrand.

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you'd like this Grand Prix to be memorable, choose to Live the VIP Experience!

 

 

Well, that's it! Pairings for Round 1 have been posted.

Oh, have you registered yet?;)

GP Krakow 2015 Welcome to Krakow 3 Mar 2015 News by: Kevin

Krakow reloaded

 

After a 9-year hiatus, Grand Prix are coming back to Krakow!

Bazaar of Moxen is proud to welcome you to the southern part of Poland, in this beautiful city conveniently located close to the Czech, Slovak and Ukrainian borders and a few hours away from Germany. It's also easy to reach by plane thanks to its two airports: Krakow (KRK) welcomes most airlines while Katowice (KTW) is the low-cost airport.
Our venue, International Exhibition and Convention Centre EXPO Krakow, can comfortably welcome 1300 players and is located a couple minutes away by public transportation from the City Center.
 

 

 

Register Online


We strongly encourage you to register online prior to the event. Many good reasons for this:

  • You save 10€ by doing so.
  • You're guaranteed to play!
    Indeed, more and more Grand Prix reach their maximum attendance way before the event (Kyoto closed 6 weeks ahead!)
  • No need to queue on site on Friday. You're all set and can focus on winning 2 byes  rather than queuing

 

Online registration will be open until Thursday, April 16th or until maximum capacity has been reached, which is 1300 players in Krakow.

 

 

 

A Play Mat for everybody

 

Each player who registered for the Main Event will receive the Grand Prix play mat. The play mats will be distributed during the Saturday morning Seat All Players. We will reveal the art of the play mat on March 13th!

 

 

And another for Side Events

 

We have produced another play mat in a very limited edition that you can get only by playing in our Early Bird Trials and Side Events!

 

 

Enhance your experience

 

We're working hard on making everybody's experience a great one. We know some of you want even more. That's why we're offering two packages with additional benefits:

  • The Sleep-in Special allows you to skip the Seat All Players and to check in individually at our Info Booth to get your gifts. It also comes with 50 BoM points.
  • The VIP Experience is the ultimate way to enjoy the Grand Prix, featuring (amongst other things) access to the Exclusive VIP Lounge, a free 8-player event and 100 BoM points.

 

Choose your prizes!

Following the great success of our Prize Wall in Strasbourg, we will feature it not only in Krakow but at at all of our 2015 events. The concept is easy:


  • Instead of fixed prizes you may not be thrilled about, you will earn BoM points at ALL Side Events.
    Yes, ALL Side Events: This includes Friday Trials and 8-player tournaments.
  • BoM Points can be converted into the boosters, singles or goodies that YOU like
  • Points can be accumulated through the week-end
    You don't need to choose a prize immediately. You can keep them throughout the whole week-end to be eligible to even better prizes.
  • Team with your friends
    You can combine your BoM points to get better prizes.

Check our selection of top singles and exclusive goodies in our Prize Wall section

 


We're looking forward to welcoming you in Krakow for an awesome event!

GP Krakow 2015 The Sleep-in Special 6 Feb 2015 News by: Kevin

Sleep more to win more

 

A great night of sleep is important before a Grand Prix. So why bother with an early alarm and risk making a lethal mistake in that decisive round 8 or 9?

That’s why we’ve designed the Sleep-in Special, which allows you to skip the Seat All Players.

 

Instead, you will be allowed to go directly to a dedicated booth to be taken care of individually: Our staff will make you sign the mandatory Media Consent Form and will give you your gifts:

  • Exclusive Promo FOIL Griselbrand
  • Exclusive GP Krakow Play Mat
  • 50 BoM Points


Check in whenever you feel like! There is only one requirement: You must be ready by the moment the first round you need to play starts!

 

 

A glance on timings

 

Seat All Players will be posted at 8:55 and Players’ Meeting will start at 9:00. We therefore expect Round 1 to start at 09:30, Round 2 approximately at 10:45, Round 3 approximately at 12:00 and Round 4 approximately at 13:15.

  • If you have 1 bye, you can arrive at 10:30 at the latest
  • If you have 2 byes, you can arrive at 11:45 at the latest
  • If you have 3 byes, you can arrive at 13:00 at the latest

 

All the advantages our Sleep-in Special provide cost a mere 20€ extra. So treat yourself and maximize your chances to draft with the cream of the crop on Day 2.
