Wizards of the Coast is back at Gen Con, and this year we're celebrating 30 years of Magic: The Gathering! While we don’t have a booth in the exhibit hall, there are plenty of ways you can play with us at the convention.

Explore Magic's Past and Its Future

Thirty years in the making and still growing, Magic: The Gathering is thriving with veteran and new players alike. Join us for a panel discussion that looks further into Magic's future than we’ve ever looked before!

Play Magic: The Gathering

Join our friends at Pastimes in Hall B to play the trading card game phenomenon, Magic: The Gathering. There will be lots of ways for you to play. And don't worry—if you've never played Magic but want to see what all the fun is about, just stop by the MagiKids booth outside of Hall B for a quick demo.

It's also Commander Masters release weekend! Is there a better way to celebrate the launch of the latest Magic set than by playing Commander matches at Gen Con all weekend long? We can’t think of one!
