The "Gatecrash" Booster Battle Pack has everything you your friend need to play a two-player game of "Magic: the Gathering." Meant to help introduce players to limited, each "Gatecrash" Booster Battle Pack also contains a "learn to play" guide and "Magic: the Gathering" rules insert.
Inside there's two 22 card semi-randomized "decks," each from one of the five "Gatecrash" guilds: Boros, Dimir, Orzhov, Gruul, and Simic - along with their respective Guildgate.
After you and your friend have have chosen a guild, you'll both open one of the two enclosed "Gatecrash" booster packs and then add up to five cards for a 27 card deck to battle against eachother with.
The best part? It's price. An MSRP of $9.99. If you consider that each 15 card "Gatecrash" booster pack will retail for an MSRP of $3.99, then you're receiving an additional 44 cards and a unique limited experience with your friend for just $2.01 more than the price of two packs.
You'll have to wait though. "Gatecrash" prerelease events will take place on January 26-27, 2013 and "Gatecrash" doesn't release until February 1, 2013.
In the meantime, you can enjoy the "Return to Ravnica" Booster Battle Pack or Holiday Gift Box.
