Then on the following day is the Grand Prix Trial Utrecht, a Standard Constructed Swiss Style tournament. The winner gets a 2-Round Bye for Grand Prix Utrecht.
There are lots more prizes on offer, so there is something for everyone.
Entering Magic The Gathering… and What Do I Win???
To enter each tournament, there’s a £30 (+ a small booking fee) charge that you can only pay by using the online service. This ticket allows entry into the Insomnia event that day and the Card Tournament.

The format will be Sealed with the latest set of Dragons of Tarkir, combined with Fate Reforged.
