MAGfest PAPA Circuit Updates

Continuing the discussion from MAGfest PAPA Circuit Event Info 2/18-2/21:

A few updates I want to ensure players attending MAGfest easily find:

  1. Here is the current crazy schedule for the entire MAGfest show: Be sure to play the claw machine tournament, it’s a riot :wink:
  2. If you plan on attending, I recommend you buy the show pass as soon as you can to ensure they don’t sell out at the door. They have never hit capacity but there is a chance they could this year at around 20,000 attendees.
  3. Playoffs will comprise the top 24 players. Format is PAPA style, top 8 players with a bye for first round. Top 8 players that are beginners (IFPA rank TBD) will play a simple double-elimination bracket so it finishes quickly.
  4. Here is the overall schedule for the tournament. Not quite 24 hour qualifying, figure give the machines a rest in between days.
