Two-Headed Giant Brawl!

We're trying out something new, so join us for our first Two-Headed Giant Brawl tournament!

Choose your partner and work together before the day of the event to create two complementary decks based on a custom banlist. Teammates may not play the same commander, however there are no other restrictions on deckbuilding outside the normal Brawl format requirements.

The full banlist will be listed at the end of the event description, so be sure to check it out!


Magic Store Championship!

Become the reigning Top Tier Magic Champion at our Store Championship! Get your best Standard deck tuned and tested, and get ready to throw down!

Players will receive promos from Guilds of Ravnica, and the winner will receive a Champion playmat and store credit!

Kill Team League!

Warhammer 40k: Kill Team is back with a vengeance, and it's time to start a league to match! This league will run for 12 weeks, with rounds lasting one week, and will follow the rules for a Kill Team Campaign listed in the back of the Core Rules.

Each week, players will be given special tactics cards to be used in their games, and at the end of each month special prizes will be given out!


Fantasy Football Draft!

It's time to put your fantasy skills to the ultimate test! The 2018 NFL season is nearly upon us, and we would like to invite you to join Top Tier's annual store fantasy football league! 

We'll be hosting an in-person draft at Top Tier, complete with big board, player stickers, and free pizza to kick off the season in style. We will be providing prize support for first through third places in this weekly head to head league! Feel free to message the store any questions about the league.

Back to School Board Game Night!

Got the back-to-school blues, or want to celebrate the beginning of your last year? Maybe your school days are behind you, and you just want to relax with a good game. No matter the reason, stop by and join us for our back-to-school board game night!

We'll have a selection of our favorite games set up and ready to play all night. If you've got your eye on one of the other 250+ games in our library, feel free to play your way!


Guilds of Ravnica Prerelease!

Choose your guild and get ready to fight for dominance!

We're running Prereleases for Guilds of Ravnica at midnight, noon, and 6pm on Saturday, September 29th. Think you've got what it takes to be an Ironman? $75 gets you entry into all three, and guarantees your choice of Guild as well! On Sunday, be back with a friend for our Two-Headed Giant Prerelease!

Preregister for $25 to lock down your choice of guild, or $30 on the night of the event, and prepare to return to Ravnica!


X-Wing 1st Ed. Farewell Tournament!

We're holding one last tournament for the old guard before X-Wing 2nd Edition releases, and this is it! Whether you ally with the Empire or side with Scum and Villainy, test the mettle of your ships in our tournament for Star Wars X-Wing Minis!

Entry is $5, and we'll be handing out promo cards to everyone who enters! Top finishers will also receive store credit based on attendance.

Pokemon League Challenge!

Get started in the world of competitive Pokemon at League Challenge tournaments! These small, entry-level events help new and established players earn Championship Points and work toward earning an invitation to the World Championships! 

Pokemon League Challenges are open to all ages and experience levels and are a great introduction to tournament play.


1v1 Commander!

Ditch your Edrics and your Sylvan Libraries and get ready for some one-on-one Commander action! 

We are following the Magic Online 1v1 Commander rules listed here, including the banlist, starting at 30 life, etc. The tournament will be capped at three rounds of Swiss or Round Robin, with 50-minute best-of-one matches.

Magic Open House!

Never played Magic before, need a Magic refresher, or want to introduce a friend to the game? Show up to our Magic Open House to get a crash course! Feel free to drop by any time you like during the day!

New players and their teachers will receive a free fully-playable Welcome Deck featuring cards from Magic's most recent set, as well as a promo just for attending!


Magic Farewell Draft!

Kaladesh and Amonkhet blocks are on their way out with the release of Guilds of Ravnica, and we're bidding them a fond farewell with a special 4-pack draft! 

For the normal Friday Night Magic price of $15, you'll get one pack each of Kaladesh, Aether Revolt, Amonkhet, and Hour of Devastation to draft in that order, then build a 40-card deck and duke it out in Swiss rounds! Top finishers will also receive store credit based on attendance and FNM promos.

Legend of the Five Rings Event Image MC.png

Legend of the Five Rings!

We have a few events already under our belts, and we're going to keep it rolling with another Legend of the Five Rings tournament!

Game of Thrones Melee!

It's time to play the Game of Thrones the way it's truly meant to be played. With all the backdoor politics, vicious backstabbing, and ephemeral alliances that entails. That's right, it's time for a Melee tournament!


Pauper Tournament!

Get ready to dig through your old boxes of long-forgotten cards and dust off those Doom Blades and Elvish Mystics, because it's time for a Pauper tournament! 

Final Fantasy TCG Tournament!

It's time to get another Final Fantasy TCG constructed tournament on the books. Get those decks together and join us for an Opus VI tournament!


Choose Your Own Magic Draft!

Guilds of Ravnica is almost here but before we dive into the midnight prerelease, stop in for Friday Night Magic and choose your own draft! Kaladesh? Khans of Tarkir? Chaos? Masters 25? Choose from among all our available stock and have some fun before Ravnica fever takes over! 

The best part? We're only charging $10 for a regular pack draft, or $25 for a Masters draft! We'll still have the usual payout in store credit to top finishers, as well as FNM promos. The draft format will be chosen by vote.
