Each venue hosting a Galactic Qualifier will offer two or more “Galactic Qualifier" tournaments and may also offer a number of Escape Pod side events.
Galactic Qualifier tournaments may be run in any of four formats—Standard, Trilogy, Infinite, and Sealed. Escape Pods may be run as Standard, Trilogy, Infinite, or Draft. Contact the tournament organizer for specific event and format details.
You don't need to be a grizzled veteran to compete… You simply need to register a legal deck, including a completed deck list. Every competitor will receive an exclusive promo card, and can obtain an exclusive game mat while supplies last!
