Welcome back to the Grand Prix Orlando countdown blog!
Yesterday, I did a brief overview of what to expect at Grand Prix
Orlando, but today is when I’ll really start diving into things. Grand Prix
are massive events with a lot going on at them. From awesome special guests
and super-sweet side events to the chance to win an invite to a Pro Tour, a
Grand Prix really is whatever you want to make out of it. But in order to
make Grand Prix Orlando a special event for yourself, you need to become
more familiar with what your options are!
Main Event Registration
Limited is the main event format at Grand Prix Orlando, so bring your
nicest set of sleeves, because the cards and deckbox will be provided for
you! By signing up for a Grand Prix main event, not only are you signing up
for the largest open-entry Magic: The Gathering tournament offered
worldwide, but you’re also signing up for the opportunity to win an
invitation to the Pro Tour! Throw in a FOIL Progenitus and our Show Up
& Play Experience, and our Main Event Registration is the perfect
option for you!

If you’re more interested in playing as many matches of Magic as possible,
our Three-Day Infinite Challenge option is just what you’re looking for.
We’ll be hosting Challenge events all weekend long across numerous formats
(including Sealed!) for you to pick and choose from, so find what events
work for your schedule and battle until you can battle no more. But don’t
forget that you get these!

One-Day Infinite Challenge
Don’t have three days to spare to play Magic until infinity? Completely
understandable, and we’re more than happy to accommodate you! Our One-Day
Infinite Challenge option lets you play as many challenge events across
numerous formats (including Sealed!) as you can handle.
If playing with 100-card decks is your cup of tea, we’ve got that covered
as well. Many of you are familiar with our Command Zone at previous Grand
Prix, but with a little help from the awesome people over at Ultimate
Guard, we’ve once again transformed the Command Zone into a place where you
can become the Ultimate Commander! Check out all the sweet swag you get for
selecting this option while supplies last!

Show Up & Play Experience
You know what sucks? Long lines. I’ve never met anyone who likes waiting in
a long line and we at StarCityGames.com don’t like long lines either. And
thanks to our Show Up & Play! Experience system, main event
participants won’t have to wait in long lines to check in and receive all
Beginning at 8:00 AM on Saturday, main event participants will be able to
construct their Sealed decks as soon as they arrive. Simply report to the
Show Up & Play! stations next to the main event stage to receive your
preregistered Sealed pool and be seated for deck construction. Once seated,
players will receive five (5) minutes to verify the contents of their
preregistered Sealed pool and then thirty (30) minutes to construct their
deck. If you’d like to learn more about our new and improved Show Up &
Play! Experience, you can do so right here!
What Tomorrow Brings
Now that you know your options and what registration rewards come along
with them, we can dive further into the main event. Tomorrow I’ll be going
over Grand Prix Orlando’s maximum main event seating capacity (that’s a
mouthful!), the main event schedule for Saturday and Sunday, the main event
prizes, and the Pro Points you can earn. See ya then!
