1 new player you get in for $13, your friend gets in for $13
2 new players you get in for $11 your friends get in for $13
3 new players you get in for $9 your friends get in for $13

This Discount only available at the LaGrange, Indiana Prerelease

Everyone you get to come play must register with you to get the discount. Each new player can only be claimed by one player. If a family of 3 brings one new player, only one of the 3 would get the $2 discount.

This event will be Modified Swiss with a top 8 if there are at least 16 players. If there are less then 16 players, there will be no Top 8.

Pokémon Modified "Mutant" - This is a fun, non-sanctioned event using the current modified format. This format will also let players use the Team Aqua Vs Team Magma cards they get in there packs even if they don't have the cards they would normally need to play them in a deck. In this format, Pokémon can evolve from any Pokémon of their type, as opposed to just their own Evolution chain. (So this would mean that you could evolve, for example, an Ivysaur from a Paras, since they're both of the same type (Grass)). Click here for Mutant rules.

Is there anyone coming to this event? I need to know if anyone would want to play in a draft after the main tournament? The cost would be between $15 and $20 and would be the same format as the prerelease.
