Leaving the town of Las Cruces
The City of Las Cruces Parks and Recreation Department presents “Magic: The Gathering” Game Night, 5:30-9 p.m. every Thursday at the Frank O’Brien Papen Community Center, 304 W. Bell Ave.
“Magic: The Gathering” is a collectible card game that combines strategy and fantasy. It can be played with two or more players and to win, a player must reduce their opponent’s life points to zero.
The game can be played in different rule formats. Limited formats involve players spontaneously building a deck from a pool of random cards with a minimum deck size of 40 cards; in constructed formats, players create decks from cards they own, usually with a minimum of 60 cards per deck.
“Magic: The Gathering” game nights are free for everyone and open to all formats. Players of all ages, skill levels and experience are welcome.
New players and people interested in seeing what the game is about are always welcome to join or watch. The staff will teach the game to new players. Youth under 13 must have a parent or guardian/adult present to play.
The first “Magic: The Gathering” game night will take place on August 16, 2022. Attendance is free.
Participants must complete a release form upon their first visit and acknowledge and read the program rules upon their first participation. No pre-registration required, drop-in format. Places are limited, first come, first served.
