A longtime member of the Pro Tour and Grand Prix coverage staff, Nate Price now works making beautiful words for all of you lovely people as the community manager for organized play. When not covering events, he lords over the @MagicProTour Twitter account, ruling with an iron fist.

Wondering what your intrepid Community team members were doing when they weren't slinging spells against Wizards of the Coast the last few days? Check it out.

On the first day, the Community team got a chance to go to the Pike Place Market.

The Community team tries to find a way to break the scavenger hunt at the market. Gamers will be gamers.

This giant squid sculpture was created using similar techniques to the ones used to make the Statue of Liberty. Neat!

Can I get a dozen Hedron Crab to go?


Welcome to the Science Fiction Museum of Seattle, also known as heaven.

That’s Sir Locutus of Borg to you!

These aren’t the planeswalkers you’re looking for.

John Connor? Never heard of him.

Urza’s Tower of Guitars.

Callum Milne, Piano Man.

Failing to read the instructions before using a zero gravity toilet does not end well.

Time for lunch! The look on Evan Erwin’s face is absolutely priceless!

The Space Needle was developed by NASA to patch up any holes in the fabric of spacetime.

Brad Nelson, getting his merry-go-round FFfreak on.

We're not sure what Gavin's doing here.

The carousel was one of the highlights of the week. Go watch the video!

Fountain diving with the fellas.

Apparently adding –fest to the end of things is huge in Seattle. Marin Baraba, originally from Croatia, has found one that he really likes!

A good coverage reporter should be heard and not seen.

The Community hits the community for some games at Uncle’s Games in Bellevue.

Forsythe the Archenemy? Who'da thunk it.

Gamers, meet games.

Charles Rapkin prepares his worst as the Archenemy.

Thanks to Uncle's Games for putting up with us for the evening.

Food court gaming. Is there anything sweeter?

Gordon Culp and Worth Wollpert sit down with the Community for a little chat about the state of Magic Online.

Time for the tour!

This is what it’s all about.

Funny, I thought there would be more games at a game company.

Nerf guns and Jones Soda. We’re either at the Wizards offices or a day care center. Some would argue both.

Every cubicle is decorated like this. It’s awesome.

Just another hard day of work in the pit. Playing Magic.

Getting a chance to mill about with the Magic R&D team was unbelievable.

This was the mastermind behind Fallen Empires, something he knows quite a bit about.

Halt! No one enters the bathroom without my permission!

What the heck?! I thought I took the red pill!

Torture Me Elmo wasn’t as big a hit as its jollier cousin.
