Our community is an everchanging group of wonderful people from a wide range of backgrounds. There is a lot of players represented a wide range of formats. We run events most weeks, including Friday night Magic and regular tournament and release events.
Our events are organised and managed by our lovely team of event organisers:
Andrew works at the café as a manager and has been playing Magic since War of the Spark (May, 2019) and is still a relatively new player. He plays Standard and Commander, and his favourite format is Draft. His Guild is GRUUL! Be sure to talk to him if you have any questions about the community.
There are other event organisers, just need to ask their permission before putting them on the website, watch this space!
If you think you would like to help run Magic events, please do not hesitate to get in contact. Talk to Andrew or contact the cafe directly.

Casual – Casual events are what you might expect. There is no prescribed format and no tournament structure. You’ll usually find a mix of formats being played, most commonly Commander. If you want to play a specific format, be sure to communicate with other players ahead of time so they know what to bring. Casual events typically only cost the concession charge for playing games, which you can find out more about here. We might give out promos but there are no prizes given out at casual events.
Commander: Commander is Magic’s most popular multiplayer format. More info here: https://magic.wizards.com/en/content/commander-format
Standard: The simplest way to play with only the newest cards. More info here: https://magic.wizards.com/en/content/standard-formats-magic-gathering
Draft: Create a smaller deck by passing packs and play games. More info here: https://magic.wizards.com/en/game-info/gameplay/formats/booster-draft
