Shimmering Skies Release Weekend Draft at Gnome Games Appleton East – $30

Gnome Games Appleton East Disney Lorcana Shimmering Skies Draft

Shimmering Skies is releasing August 9th at Gnome Games and we’re celebrating with a full weekend of Disney Lorcana fun! On Saturday it is draft!

The draft will start at 2pm promptly!.

Every Card From Disney Lorcana Shimmering Skies Revealed (So Far) - Star City Games

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 brand new set, Shimmering Skies! 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.

Drafting not your thing? On Sunday, August 11th we’re doing a sealed deck challenge; and on Friday August 9th we’re doing a 6 pack sealed event!
