Disney Lorcana TCG: Chapter 1 – DRAFT – January ’23
January 21 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm£25
Disney Lorcana is an Immersive Trading Card Game! Wield magic inks and the power of Lorcana to assemble your team of Disney characters. Some characters will be familiar friends. Others will be fantastically reimagined… One of the most exciting and popular TCG formats is Booster Draft, which combines the discovery of pulling cards from booster packs with the strategy and fun of crafting a deck before you do battle against your opponents. Planet JJs is very excited to host Lorcana Draft Events!
Not Sure What Draft Is?
When playing Disney Lorcana in its Draft format, each player will get four booster packs. Each player then opens a booster pack, they then choose one card from their pack they had just opened. Once they have chosen a card, they pass the remaining cards to their neighbouring player before repeating with the cards they have been handed by their from their own neighbour. The process is then repeated -choose a card and pass the rest on.
Once the current cards have all been drafted, players repeat the process by opening another booster pack each, drafting cards one at a time and passing the rest to their neighbour. With each new booster pack, alternate which direction you pass your cards for that round of drafting: first to the player to your left so the cards travel clockwise, then the player to your right so they go anti-clockwise, and so on. Once all packs have been opened, chards chosen and passed around each player should end up with 48 cards in total. In Lorcana’s Booster Draft format, each player will then build a 40-card deck, which is a change from the standard 60-card deck when you build a Lorcana deck for use in its Core Constructed format.
As each player should end up with 48 cards from the cards they have draft they will essentially be looking to decide which eight cards they want to discard and not include in your deck!
In another major change from Lorcana’s standard deck-building rules for its Core Constructed format, which limits your deck to a maximum of two different ink colours, you can include cards of all six inks in your deck when playing Lorcana’s Booster Draft format.
One final change from the standard Lorcana deck-building rules is that you can include more than four copies of a card with the same name. This includes both the name of the character – for example, Captain Hook – and their title, which is printed underneath, such as Forceful Duelist.
The Disney Lorcana TCG Draft Events will run from 11:00 till around 15:00 (ish) – this includes time for: Drafting – Deck Building and then a Swiss Style Tournament between all players (best of 3 games per round, number of rounds dependent on number of attendees generally 3 or 4 rounds. Rounds are limited to 50 minutes). There is a charge of £25 per person and each player gets to keep the cards they draft!
