Disney Lorcana Draft Saturdays Gnome Games Green Bay East – $30

Disney Lorcana Draft GBE

Disney LorcanaDisney Lorcana Drafts are now weekly at Gnome Games Green Bay East! Every Saturday at 11 a.m we’ll be drafting Disney Lorcana!

We’re playing 3 rounds of draft, and every round that you win your match, you win a pack! Matches are best 2 of 3 games within the 50 minute time limit.

All the packs drafted will be the newest set, Ursula’s Return! Drafting Disney Lorcana uses 4 booster packs for each player and requires at least 6 players. For the first pack, each player opens the pack, selects one card to add to their card pool, then passes the remaining cards to their left. Then they collect the pack from their right, select a card, and pass the remaining cards to their left. Card selection continues in this manner until all cards from the pack have been drafted. The direction of passing reverses for each pack: the second pack is passed to the right, the third pack is passed to the left, and so on. Once all packs have been drafted, each player’s picks become their completed card pool for deck construction.

There are no restrictions on ink types or the number of a specific card that can be in the 40 card minimum deck.

For information on drafting Disney Lorcana check the tournament guide here: https://www.disneylorcana.com/en-US/resources
