Of course no shops in New Zealand are able to sell new sealed product overseas but I do have a contact over there who lives five minutes from the shop.
I have asked him to pop into the shop and pick me up two sealed boxes if they are available and ask around about the pre release kits to see if they are available too.Some super exciting news we have been keeping secret and now we can share with all of our MTG players!
Wizards of the Coast have something super special planned for us Kiwi's for the upcoming set, Dominaria! They are experimenting with something exciting and hopefully this leads to some exciting new changes for Magic in future sets!
Dominaria booster packs in select products will contain a special redeemable code for MTG Arena and this promotion is exclusively for Dominaria booster packs in New Zealand.
Here's what we know so far:
- We do not know exactly what the codes will redeem at this point, it may be arena packs, online currency, or any other in-game item. (We will soon find out! )
- Pre-release packs will also contain boosters with codes in them (sign up now!!).
- These codes are region locked so they will not be able to be redeemed in other countries (sorry, we can't ship sealed MTG product overseas anyway).
- They will be printed in all Dominaria packs found in booster boxes and prerelease packs available in New Zealand (did you know you can pick up booster box preorders during prerelease weekend?)
- Boosters found in Planeswalker decks and Bundles are not part of this promotion.
We can only sell a limited amount of boxes over the prerelease weekend so get in quick to avoid disappointment!
I will be opening up one box to see if the contents are any different. If so, I will be putting together some sets for booster collectors, so if you want a set just let me know and I will put one aside.No obligation, if you change your mind it is not a big deal.
As to pricing, the boxes are cheaper than individual boosters so that is a bonus but there is still shipping from New Zealand and then shipping on to the final destination. I am happy to do them at cost price because I also get cheaper booster and postage prices if bought in bulk and costs are shared.
I think they will be available for a while so if anyone wants a sealed booster later on I will see if I can ask my friend to pick up some more.
I will also see if he can get the pre release kits, if anyone is interested in those let me know, the friend is not into MtG so doesn't know much about the products so I don't want to over burden him.
