Wizards @ PAX East – New Commander and PC Demo

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

According to the schedule posted over at, we may see some spoilers and a new demo for upcoming products at PAX East.

Wizards of the Coast returns to Boston as an official tabletop sponsor for PAX East on March 11-13. Stop by booth 648 for demos of Magic: The Gathering, Archenemy, Duels of the Planeswalkers, and an exciting PC demo of something so new we can’t even talk about it here … yet.

Join us Friday at 5 p.m. in the Merman Theatre for a seminar to learn all about Magic: The Gathering Commander multiplayer format from Brand, R&D, and Magic community members. We hear there might even be a surprise or two … but you’ll have to come and see for yourself.

Usually when they have “seminars” like this they play a few hands of Magic and spoil a few unreleased cards. It’ll be interesting to see if they’ll play the full Commander decks that will be available for release (they did something similar for Gen-Con 09 to spoil Planechase) or if we’ll just see a few of the new cards that are coming in that exciting product.

I’ve been mostly impressed by Magic brand software of late. I hope it is more in line with their game proper than a different take in the same fantasy. So, more like Duels of the Planeswalkers and less like Magic: Tactics.

Still makes me insanely jealous of those who get to go to PAX East.
