June Amonkhet Sealed League Winners!

 

Sealed League for June2017 had 16 players.  There was over $140 in store credits in the prize pool.

Our Monthly Sealed League is a really fun event that any one can jump in, even after it starts.  Players build a 30-card deck using 3 boosters from Amhonkhet.  Each week, players are encouraged to play as many games as they'd want where the results of the first 3 are recorded.  Each of the following weeks players can improve their deck by purchasing an additional booster.  At the end of the month, players submit their record sheets and prizes are awarded to top finishers. So turn in your score sheet.

1st place Kyle Taylor with 39 points, 95 store credits. 

2nd place Rey Benavides with 10 points, earning 47 store credits.

Turn in your score sheets for prizes!

 

 

June also included two bonus prizes!

For the player with the most varied opponents, Kyle Taylor played the most different people.

For the most sporting player, Eric Sackett.  He seen engaging with newer players and was here at the store often looking to get sealed games in.  Another action we noticed was that he's gone out of his way to invite players to Sky High that haven't yet checked out our store.

Each of these players have been awarded the Amonkhet Worthy Challenger playmat.

 

As a reminder prizing for this event goes to the top third of total players meaning simply turning in your score sheet can get you a prize!
