Organizers have the option of choosing the format that best suits their
playgroup. Some suggestions are:
The 40/40 rule:
Since Nights of Reckoning is not a standalone set, the format will
require players to bring their own "base" decks to add to the Nights of
Reckoning cards they receive at the event. These base decks should
have 40 library and 8 vampire cards (average capacity 5 or more). So 40
library cards and 40 capacity of vampires: the 40/40 rule.
Each attendee purchases from the sponsoring retailer 4 packs of Nights
of Reckoning. These are then booster drafted at the tables.
Players must use at least 20 library and 4 crypt cards from their
drafted Nights of Reckoning cards. (Obviously you can use more if you
want; you can even replace some of your 40/40 premade deck with
additional Nights of Reckoning cards if you like. You must have at
least 60 cards in your library and 12 cards in your crypt when you're
Participants are encouraged to bring multiple base decks and then
choose one after drafting their Nights of Reckoning cards.
Booster draft Nights of Reckoning with whatever combination of sets you
like or have access to.

Anything you want!

free to do as you like. This is not a sanctioned format so be creative!
Try and take down Nergal in the final, if you want!
AFTER THE EVENT:

story on the Pre-release events. We want Pictures, Tell us how many

us in the loop.
