If you plan on playing in the Magic: the Gathering Dominaria Game Day (or any in-person event for that matter) it’s not always as easy to find out when to play at your local game store (LGS). You could rely on knowing two other players to help you out.
1) Know a Regular
This player spends their Fridays, Saturdays, and sometime Tuesday at the same store, they know everything going on there. Their tournament organizer is their Facebook friend and is a snapchat away. They’ll know when their game day starts. If you have a couple of places to play you’ll have to more than one regular.
2) Know an Explorer
This player navigates every local game store’s web site, Facebook page, Twitter feed, Wizards locator, or dry-erase white board. Knowing this player is great, assuming you like the same style of magic they do – pptq grinder, frontier, legacy, EDH highlander frontier, or the similar. Unfortunately there are not many Game Day explorer’s so this one may be harder to find, except, of course, if you know about arczap.com MTG Events.
ArcZap MTG Events is like a Veteran Explorer – both an explorer and a regular – that you can trust to find you events that meet your schedule and location.
We have two features to walk you through today.
In our article Tap This! Searchable MTG Events we walk you through the basics of using MTG Events search engine. One additional new feature we’ve added to MTG Events is the hot search button, which searches automagically to whatever is the current set of events of interest- as of today, the Dominaria game day events. This will change week to week. You can find it in the menu on the left.
To use it, just go to arczap.com/MTGEvents and click the button and all the Seattle area game day events will be shown to you.
The main MTG Events page shows all the stores and all the events – which you can further narrow down with our handy filters by store, tags, radius, or key words. But our second new feature we are announcing is a dedicated page for each store that we have events. You can bookmark these pages and have at a glance every Magic: the Gathering event for that store without filtering or searching or knowing a regular. For example, here is Shane’s store front page.
It shows the store, it’s address, phone number, map, and calendar. One really nice feature is the ‘open map directions’ button which uses google maps to give you an immediate directions and traffic from your current location to see if you can make it on time.
There are three ways to access the store front page for the store you are looking for.
1) On the main MTG Events page, in the ‘Filter by store’ area click the store name.
2) In event details click the store name
3) Go directly – bookmark it.
Each store has a unique url on ArcZap, they all exist under the /store area. For example, Shane’s direct link is: /store/ShanesBigLeague
Here are direct links for all the Seattle area store front pages holding Dominaria game day events.
