The Russian capital Moscow has become a modern metropolis and one of the world’s business and scientific centers. It is home to more than 10 million people, of which millions emigrated from the former Soviet republics. The city covers more than 1,000 square kilometers, and receives more than 4 million tourists a year. It hosts offices of the world’s biggest companies and banks in a financial center and has an industrial center with aerospace factories and high-tech business.

Combine your trip to Grand Prix Moscow with a visit to Red Square, a tour of The Kremlin, or any of the many other attractions in this fantastic city.

The Magic: The Gathering Grand Prix tournament series is a great reason to get out into the Magic tournament community, catch up with old friends, meet some new ones, and play some great Magic. Grand Prix tournaments are world-wide open events that allow all Magic players to participate and experience the thrill of a large-scale competition. In addition to cash prizes, a high Planeswalker Points multiplier, and exclusive foil promo cards for participants, Grand Prix feature a host of other activities, including public events and artist signings (prizes subject to change).

Minors must have a parent or guardian’s signature on this form. Publicity releases will be collected during registration.

Tournament Format

  • Day 1: Sealed Deck (6 packs of Magic 2013 in Russian. English product will be provided for those who wish to play in English.)
  • Day 2 and Top 8: Booster Draft (3 packs of Magic 2013, in English)
  • Deck lists are required.
  • If product is not stamped or preregistered, deck registration and deck swap will be performed for the Swiss Sealed Deck.

Tournament Structure

  • Modified Swiss-style (50-minute rounds).
  • If 799 or fewer players register for the event, all players with an X-2-0 or better record OR the top 64 players—whichever number is greater—will advance to the second day of the event.
  • If 800 or more players register for the event, all players with an X-2-0 or better record OR the top 128 players—whichever number is greater—will advance to the second day of the event.
  • The Top 8 players after the final Swiss round on Day 2 will advance to the Top 8 single-elimination finals.
  • The Top 8 players will be seated randomly at the draft table immediately prior to drafting. The Top 8 bracket will be determined using this random seating.
  • Top 8 playoff matches will be best 2 of 3, and have no time limit. (Players are still expected to play at a normal pace and complete playoff matches in a reasonable amount of time.)
  • Where necessary, the standings after the Swiss rounds will still be used to determine final order in the standings.
  • For the first game of each match in the Top 8, the player that finished higher in the Swiss rounds chooses either to play first or to play second. For subsequent games in each Top 8 match, the usual Play/Draw rule applies (loser of the previous game decides whether to play first in the next game).

Judges
The Head Judges for this event will be Riccardo Tessitori and Scott Marshall. The regional coordinator is Eugene Bazhenov.
