Pastimes Competitive Event Information for the Magic Masters Series


The City of Cowboys and Culture - Fort Worth is an amazing place to visit and will be a fantastic host city for Grand Prix Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW)! A favorite visitor's spot, Ft. Worth is a short distance from the airport with one of the most fun downtown areas anywhere.

Speaking of FUN, Grand Prix DFW is going to be one of the most fun GPs ever. Besides the always grand Grand Prix, there is a great roster of events running all weekend long - starting at Noon on Friday, July 24th and continuing all the way through to Sunday the 26th.  We have something for everyone, from quick, casual games to the Super Sunday Series where you can win a very exclusive invitation to a $20,000 event at Wizards of the Coast HQ - all expenses paid!! AND, have you checked out the Prize Wall! Customize Your Prize is our new motto as we fill the prize area with everything from boosters to uncut sheets, Grand Prix t-shirts to Foil Sets, jumbo Magic Cards to a great selection of single cards - the Prize Wall lets you pick your prize!

Register early as there are specials and incentives to do so. And check out our VIP offerings for exclusive GP goodies! We look forward to rustling up great times in DFW - and we hope you will join us!


Grand Prix tournaments are worldwide open events that allow all Magic: the Gathering players to participate and experience the thrill of a large-scale competition. Cash prizes, a high Planeswalker Points multiplier, and exclusive foil promo cards for participants make up the main event.
