Moonshot Invitational

The Moonshot Invitational Series is a group of seventeen $1,000 MTG Tournaments taking place from June - Oct, where the winners of each tournament will earn a spot at the $10,000 Moonshot Invitational Championship Tournament on November 6th!

There will be many chances to qualify, with tournaments being held for Standard, Modern, and Limited play formats. The winner of each individual tournament automatically qualifies for the $10,000 championship in November, but players can also earn their way in through accumulating enough points by playing in our various $1,000 tournaments beginning in June.

Please note that for the safety of all participants we are limiting each of these events to the first 64 players that register. We expect these events to fill up quickly. Tickets to each event will go on sale at MoonshotGameStore.com. Please subscribe to our Hotlist email to be notified when tickets go on sale.
