Can you defeat a Magic: The Gathering pro-level player? During special Friday Night Magic events, you can answer this question when you “Challenge a Guru”. Members of Team Metagame Gurus may be visiting a game shop near you!

Captained by Jim Davis, Team Metagame Gurus is comprised of highly ranked MTG players. Meat Team MGG. While members of the team compete at GPs and WOTC pro events, they focus on the Star City Tour Open Series. The Challenge a Guru events are normally held in conjunction with Friday Night Magic at a game shop near the respective SCG Open convention center. When Challenge a Guru events are scheduled, they will be announced on Facebook and Twitter by BCW Supplies.

Challenge a Guru events are free for the gamers, but players are encouraged to participate in the store’s FNM. So everyone that wants to Challenge a Guru gets a chance, these are single “gunslinging” games. The challenger can select from Standard, Modern or Legacy format.

Four Methods for Displaying Comics on a Wall

BCW offers several options for displaying your favorite comics on the wall. Which of the four methods below is best for your needs?


BCW Comic Book Toploaders
Current Size: 1-TLCH-COMIC | Silver Size: 1-TLCH-SIL | Golden Size: 1-TLCH-GOL
BCW Toploaders are designed for storing comics on a shelf or in a box, hence they do not have a hanging mechanism. However, with some simple MacGyvering, Comic Book Toploaders make an economical method for displaying comics on the wall. The simplest method is adhering a BCW Hang Tab on the back of the toploader and hanging over a flat tack or nail. Adhesive backed flat magnets or Velcro work great in many instances. You can also look in the hardware aisle at your local home center or craft store to find hanging systems from 3M and others.
