The Month of May 2019 at TGS Colne
Let's get a head start on whats happening in TGS Colne this month. We're gonna be seeing the return of some of your favourite events plus some new ones dedicated to Magic season. So lets get started!!
Magic: the Gathering War of the Spark Season
War of the spark Draft Weekend - Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th
Grab three packs of the latest and greatest set and lets Draft! What better way is there to celebrate the arrival of a new set than with this fun and interactive format?
To draft, you will be provided 3 boosters and your goal is to create a 40 card deck. But here is the twist. You and other players will sit around a table, open one booster each, take a single card out and pass the pack to the next player. You will repeat this for until all of the cards are gone and everyone will then build their decks and battle it out to see who constructed the best deck... or the silliest deck.

Entry fee: £15 or £10 for star players
Start Time: 1:30 both days
War of the Spark Standard Showdown - Starts Sunday 12th May and ends Sunday 9th June
Standard Showdown returns with the newest set, and we Planeswalkers aim to prove ourselves.
Grab your 60 card deck and battle your way to supremacy against every planeswalker the shop has to offer.

Warhammer 40k - Vigilus Defiant Phase 2
The fires of war rage on as our Vigilus Campaign continues through the month.
Join the embattled Imperium of man as they desperately try to cling on to their world, or join the various nefarious Xeno races aiming to claim the planet for their heretical gods, beliefs or simply so they can use it as a massive fighting pit. Despite all this however, in the darker regions of the planet stirs an old nemesis to the Imperium, who are using this convenient distraction to build their forces and lay claim to the world in the name of their traitorous Warmaster. Their aim is simple. Bring low the Imperium of man!
