Canterlot Nights Prerelease!

Well, it's finally time to see Canterlot Nights in all its glory! So, we'll be hosting a prerelease event down at the Uncommons on what might be the most action-packed pony Saturday ever!

Join us in the morning to get a peek at the new expansion for the MLP CCG a week before it hits shelves and get a chance to stock your decks with brand new cards!

I'll personally be hosting an early learn-to-play session for any folks who aren't fully familiar with the game, newcomers are always welcome, and will have a chance to play against players of a similar skill level and learn from the veteran players too!

We'll be wrapping up the prerelease early enough to get everyone involved up to Pearl Studios for the big monthly meetup and Season Finale Episode Screening, so you certainly won't miss a thing!

Prizes will be distributed, both from Enterplay and from our local play group - we have plenty of awesome stuff for you guys to win.

Quoting Enterplay:


"Each attendee will get a random Canterlot Nights Theme Deck starring brand new Mane Character cards Princess Celestia or Princess Luna, two Canterlot Nights booster packs, a foil stamped Coco Pommel Pf2 card, and a MLP: CCG Canterlot Nights String Bag. They will also have the chance to win packs, posters, playmats, and more, and a lucky few will even leave with a gold foil stamped In Your Dreams Pf4 card!"

Price per person will be $25 - no additional prize packs of Canterlot Nights will be available until release. To clarify, this means the only packs available from Canterlot Nights will be the two packs included in each pre release kit players will receive.


Event Schedule:

9:00 AM - Learn to Play/Free Play for any attendees. If you're new to the game, come at this time!

10:30 AM - Prerelease packs will be distributed, be here on time if you want to ensure your slot! We will prioritize anyone signed up, but if you're late, you might very well miss out! Once Prerelease packs are distributed, you will NOT be allowed to trade cards until 3 PM!

11:00 AM - Structured events begin - we have two tournaments planned, side-by-side, one for beginners who are still just learning, and another for more skilled players. Prizes will be available for both groups.

3:00 PM - Free Play/Trading Time - Players are now allowed to trade cards and may freely play games until 4 PM, when we head out for the Season Finale episode screening at Pearl Studios: http://www.meetup.com/Bronies-NYC/events/177898402/

    This was great. But I felt like the fans in The Uncommons were sucking the air away rather than bringing it in and when people smoked outside, they usually stood upwind so the smoke came right in. But the event was topnotch. I hope there are future meetups for ponies to just play.

    May 12, 2014

    • RandomRedMage

      I want to apologize, as being one of the smokers at the event, I contributed to this. Even with smoking farther away from the building it just kind of moved that way. :(

    How do I find out if I go from the waitlist to actually going?

    May 9, 2014

    • Urban H.

      Ever herd of Tumblr (and last time I checked Alex) all I've got for now is mobile devices

      May 10, 2014

    • Alyssa ".

      I'm not finding any tumblr directly associated with this meetup in that way.

  • Mathew Dante S.

    Is there any parking by the area?

    May 10, 2014

  • Krysto

    There are two decks included for demonstration - we are using them to include two more people.

    All the princesses are so disappointing.

    May 9, 2014

  • Michelle

    Hey guys, is there room for one more? Something's come up and I need to be in NYC that day after all, so I won't be able to attend our local one.

    May 9, 2014

    • Michelle

      And Ben is still going to ours upstate. :)

      May 9, 2014

  • Krysto

    To clarify, there will be no additional CN packs available for prizes. Each player will receive a starter deck and two CN packs. Other prizes will be available though!

  • Nomein

    So exactly when does this event end? The time is listed from 9-4 but wouldn't it end earlier since people will be going to Pearl for the finale?

    May 8, 2014

    • Krysto

      We'll be leaving by 4 PM to make our way up to Pearl - those who can't take the subway or are walking are advised to leave a little earlier - that meetup starts around 5 PM, but there's room for error.

      May 8, 2014

  • Kriegsmesser

    So what do we call the new UR, restoration Luna, deadeye Luna or conjurer's Luna?

    May 7, 2014

    • Krysto

      She flickers out and phases in you know :P

      May 7, 2014

    WTF UR STATER

    May 7, 2014

  • Kriegsmesser

    If anyone pulls a Yawg... Rarity's will, I would like to trade for that.

    May 6, 2014

  • GeoNine

    Unless I get dragged out of state, I'm finally free enough to do this!

    May 6, 2014

  • Krysto

    Don't know what's included in prerelease packs yet, but I can confirm drawstring bags, playmats, the attendance promo (Coco Pomell) and a randomly distributed promo (that event no one cares about because it's not Coco Pomell :P)

    I know CN Starter decks should be available, but as for packs for distribution, I don't know yet - I'll post what I know when I know it.

    If I can get a fair idea of who's coming to compete and who's coming to learn or would like to play casually, that would be awesome, I will personally see to it that no one is excluded from the possibility of winning promotional material if they choose not to compete in a tournament setting.

    • Krysto

      When I know, you'll know.

      May 3, 2014

    • Nomein

      I hope to come to learn, or at least get some sort of casual practice. I'm reading up on how to play this week but I feel like it would also help to learn from someone who knows how it works. I can keep you in the know if you'd like.

    May 4, 2014

    • Krysto

      Yep, been so absorbed in the prerelease I nearly forgot :P - still plenty of planning to do!

  • Michelle

    Hey guys, couldn't find the Meetup for this week's CCG group yet so decided to post it here where interested parties can see it -- I picked up 3 of the Luna I think Darth wanted one, and I can't remember who else, but I can bring them to Monday's CCG Meetup if we have one this week. :)

    May 3, 2014

    • Michelle

      Luna *tins* that should read -- dunno why it deleted half my comment. They're the Wal Mart exclusives.

      May 3, 2014

  • Kriegsmesser

    Omg new fluttershy is broken. All heil our new queen.

    May 2, 2014

    • Krysto

      I don't think she's broken, but she's definitely different. I'd gladly play a Fluttershy that encourages more Critter decks and less Royal Guidance decks.

      May 2, 2014

  • Michelle

    Alas, can't make it...because our local store is also having a pre-release!!!

    May 2, 2014

    • Krysto

      That's definitely a good thing!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
