Welcome to Grand Prix Krakow Thursday 22 January 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, Targi 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. Registration will run until Thursday, April 16th. Keep in mind that the maximum attendance for this Grand Prix is 1300 players so don't miss the chance to play in Krakow.

 

 

A Play Mat for everybody

 

For the first time in Europe, we will give a play mat to every player who registered to the Main Event. 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!

 

 

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, all Side Events, from the Friday Trials to the 8-player events, will earn you BoM Points that you will be able to accumulate, gather with your friends before turning them into the prizes you like the most from our selection.

 


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

The Sleep-in Special Tuesday 20 January 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.

Grand Prix Strasbourg Artists Tuesday 11 November 2014 News by: Kevin

 

We are proud to announce that Grand Prix Strasbourg will welcome no less than three Magic artists:


Johann Bodin

Magali Villeneuve

Ryan Yee

 

 

 

Johann Bodin

 

At the age of 28, Johann Bodin became a professional illustrator in 2005. He worked on many covers of science fiction and fantasy books for numerous French publishers. Since 2009, he has been illustrating cards for Magic: The Gathering. He also works for video games, press magazines, and he's frequently asked to develop the artwork for album covers and festival posters.

 

http://yozart.blogspot.com

 

He's worked on numerous Magic cards, amongst which Polukranos, World Eater, Manta Rider and Whipflare

 

 

 The complete list of his illustrations can be found here!

 

 

 

 

 

Magali Villeneuve

 

Magali Villeneuve is a fantasy illustrator. She has mainly worked on licences such as Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings or Star Wars, be it about book covers, RPGs or TCGs… She's working for Fantasy Flight Games, Random House, Del Rey, Wizards of the Coast, as well as Bragelonne, Milady, Rageot or Hachette in France.
She's also the creator of the Dark Fantasy Saga "La Dernière Terre", published at l'Homme sans nom.

 

http://www.laderniereterre.com/

 

She's most notably drawn Narset, Enlightened Master and Order of Succession

 

 

The complete list of her illustrations can be found here!

 

 

Ryan Yee

 

Ryan has always expressed interest in drawing and creating pictures. From scouring comic stores, huddling over fantasy art books in dimly lit libraries, there was always a sense of wonder that came from fantasy worlds. It wasn't until high school that he realized people actually made a living doodling these things. In college he studied Media Arts and Animation and since he has worked for clients such as Wizards of the Coast's Magic: The Gathering, Paizo's Pathfinder series, Fantasy Flight's Star Wars and Lord of the Rings board games.

Ryan has illustrated for Wizards of the Coast since Magic 2011. Some of his most popular cards include Ancient Grudge, Endless Ranks of the Dead, promo Judges Familiar, Blood Bairn, Hall of Triumph and Command Tower, as well as Khans of Tarkir's Dig through time!

 

He currently resides in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania as a lead concept artist for Schell Games where he continues to draw and create worlds his inner 15 year old self once dreamed about.

 

 

The complete list of his illustrations can be found here!

 

------------------------------------------

 

The three of them will be available for signing your cards throughout the week-end. To keep that moment enjoyable for both players and artists, we will enforce the following rules:

  • You may not have more than 16 cards signed at a time
  • We will close the queue at a time that allows Artists to finish on the scheduled time
