This page is what we like to call your Info Packet. We would've sent one out but this is cooler, easier, and you'll have it on your phone before and during the event.


Deck Registration

All players must register their decks before the event. Please make sure your registration includes your GEM ID. We recommend doing this before Thursday, May 26th, so we can make sure you'll be ready when gameplay begins. 

Players must sign in at the Check In table before entering the Arena. 

If registering your deck at the Check In table cuts into round one (meaning, you are not ready to play), then you will be disqualified. We want to make sure that doesn't happen, so please register your deck ahead of time!

How to register: 
  • If you are doing this on a desktop, then the form is editable. Fill it in and email back to us:
  • If you are doing this on a mobile device, the form is not editable. Print, fill it out, scan, and email back to us at To make scanning easier, use a mobile app like Scannable (or similar) to easily scan with your phone, and email back to us.

We will also have MMG gamer mats, with the standard FAB layout, for those that want or need one. Gamer mats will be $20 each.
