Fans of the popular card game Magic: The Gathering will be congregating in Manila on June 16th and 17th for a fun-filled grand prix event.

(TRAVPR.COM) UK - May 8th, 2012 - Card collectors will flock to Manila's SMX Convention Center this June in order to take part in the Magic: The Gathering Grand Prix Manila event.

Running from June 16th to 17th, the tournament will see fans of Wizards of the Coast's wildly popular card game congregating for a weekend of gaming, trading, competition and socialising.

Launched in 1993, Magic has become one of the most beloved games of its kind, with players using their cards to become mighty wizards - or 'planeswalkers' - and do battle with others.

Grand Prix attendees will be able to face off against champion players for the chance to win amazing cash prizes and secure exclusive promotional cards, with all guests receiving a special foil Goblin Guide card.

Moreover, artist John Stanko - whose amazing art adorns many Magic cards - will be on hand to meet fans and sign their cards for them.

The event runs from 14:00 to 20:00 local time on the Friday and 07:45 to 20:30 on the Saturday, with registration costing 900 pesos (£13.20).
