What are Prize Tix?
Prize Tix are these things:
If you've ever been to an arcade and seen the ticket redemption games, it's the same concept. These are the items you receive for doing well in side events at MagicFest and can be traded in for assorted prizes over at the Prize Wall. Each set are specifically labeled as eligible at their particular MagicFest event and will not be able to be carried over to other events.
How do I get them?
As stated above, you sign up and participate in a side event and then tickets are given out via your final match record. As an example, for out normal scheduled events these are the ticket payouts:
Scheduled Event Common Prizes:
9 Points (3-0) - 400 Prize Tix
7 Points (2-0-1) - 300 Prize Tix
6 Points (2-1) - 200 Prize Tix
4-5 Points (1-1-1 or 1-0-2) - 110 Prize Tix
3 Points (1-2) - 20 Prize Tix
On-Demand Events have their own prize breakdown, all of these are listed on their respective event schedules under the prize column.
OK, what can I use them for?
You can trade in prize tix at the prize wall for items such as booster packs / boxes, playmats, oversized cards, foil sheets, Standard singles and so on. Sometimes we'll have a few other unique items depending on exact inventory.
What are the prices and full inventory?
Latest Standard Boosters are 20tix each.
Due to the fluctuations in our inventory, we unfortunately cannot always guarantee we'll have the same items in stock at each MagicFest so we don't put out a detailed list ahead of time. Specific tix amounts are similar for items that fluctuate in price, especially for things like older booster packs and singles.
Can I sell Prize Tix?
Do Prize Tix carryover?
Sadly no, Prize Tix must be used by the end of the MagicFest weekend. They will not be accepted at other events. We apologize for any inconvience.
Why don't you let us trade these in for store credit?
Unfortunately, offering gifts card or store credit for ChannelFireball.com on the Prize Wall is not currently an option.
I got an item at a MagicFest/CommandFest and it is defective, can I replace it at a future show?
Please, always verify the condition of your items and that you are satisfied with what you are getting.
We are very happy to deal with any item issues at the same show, so please make sure you contact our onsite staff or the Prize Wall if you have an issue.
Once you leave that space, it will become your property and your responsibility. We will not be able to replace or swap items at future shows (Examples: creased playmats, foil sheets, warped promos, scuff marks on cards, etc.) as any sort of marking or damage is typically immediately visible and factored into the price or can be dealt with onsite immediately. Meanwhile we cannot verify when/where damage took place after the fact for any item, so we will not make any exceptions. We apologize for any inconvience.
