For those unfamiliar with the game, Magic: The Gathering is a trading card game first published in 1993 by Wizards of the Coast, a subsidiary of Hasbro, Inc. The game, played by two or more players each using a deck of trading cards, represents a battle between wizards who employ spells, artifacts, and creatures depicted on individual Magic cards to defeat their opponents. With more than 13,000 unique cards and 12 million active players globally, Magic represents the biggest brand in Hasbro’s $1.2 billion games portfolio with an organized tournament system and a community of professional Magic players.
The Gamer’s Armory has developed an extensive local community of Magic players and regularly hosts drafts and constructed tournaments as well as a Junior Magic League for Players 16 and under every Saturday Night. It is this community that the store is turning to in order to help one of their regular players who recently suffered serious injuries in a fall during the January ice storm that hit the Triangle area and is facing mounting medical bills.
“We feel an integral part of actually calling yourself a ‘community’
“Since the beginning, our benefit recipient has volunteered countless hours to help us grow and foster our Magic Community,” said Crystal Blanton, Co-Owner of The Gamer’s Armory. “Now that he has found himself in need of our help, we are delighted to host the Icefall Championship to raise funds as a small token of how much we appreciate all that he has done to help us be successful.”
Local sponsors of the Icefall Championship include Spiral Graphics, Alliance Distribution, Chick-Fil-A Crossroads Plaza, Dairy Queen, Jersey Mike’s, McDonald’s, CEI, Adam Skelding Designs and Baking Better. Donations for raffle items are currently being accepted.
