GottaCon 2012 Ticket Packages On Sale October 24, 2011
GottaCon tickets will be available for purchase from our website as well as at numerous retail locations (see list below) starting Monday October 24, 2011. There are different prices for each day as well as a full weekend pass price, family package prices, special packages which include entry into some of the major events as well as the option to add on a premium video game pass and/or a GottaCon 2012 t-shirt and dice set (more on this later). Also there is a special promotion on the purchase of Magic: the Gathering weekend packages (more on this later). There are a number of reasons why you should get your tickets in advance of the big show.
If you purchase your ticket in advance you receive $10 off on your full weekend pass (you pay $35 instead of $45).
Once you have purchased a ticket and our warhorn site goes live in late November you will be able to sign up to our Warhorn site where, once we approve your account, you can start to preregister for events in advance. You will also be able to change your events at anytime up until preregistration is closed. Preregistration helps to ensure your seat at the events you want as seating at most events is limited. It also avoids you having to stand in the event registration lines the days of the convention to sign up for the events you want.
Pre-paying for your ticket also gets you past the lines at the door as we will have an advance tickets line especially for you. Once you arrive just look for this line to get your convention pass, swag bag, program and get directly into the action of the vendors and events.

Similar to what MTG fans experienced on Magic Celebration day, this format is a fast fun way to play Magic! Each participant will received two boosters of Magic 2012 and have 15 minutes to construct a 30 card minimum deck. Participants will then be paired in a single elimination format with 50 minute rounds. The winner of each round will receive an additional booster of either Magic 2012 or Innistrad and will have 10 minutes to modify their decks with these new cards to a 40 card deck. Participants will then be paired for the next round. This pattern will continue until there in one overall winner.
