We first launched FNM at Home in March of 2020 because players around the world weren’t able to keep in touch with their local game store in the usual ways. We wanted to keep the Friday Night Magic fun alive, even when we couldn’t engage in “The Gathering.” Thankfully, in-store play is available again in many locations, with more and more stores again offering in-person FNM.
Zombiw Nation will be Havingits Frist
With this in mind, we want FNM to go back to being a unique in-store experience, but we also want to continue the fun of MTG Arena‘s FNM at Home event.
So, we are updating our FNM at Home event to take place Tuesdays and Wednesdays, lengthening it slightly so it’s easier to play in, and renaming it Midweek Magic. It will keep the same structure, with no entry and two ICRs (individual card rewards) as rewards, and you will still be able to contact your favorite local game store for a code, either online or (where safe) in person. But now, you’ll be able to play in these fun MTG Arena events and free to spend FNM with your friends at your local game store.
The first Midweek Magic will run on July 13
