Jared Gimbel ’11, president of Pentagon, Wesleyan’s society of Magic: The Gathering players, writes:
We’ve had a number of successful events recently, most notably one to celebrate the release of the new expansion Shards of Alara. We still have 24 spare boosters, so if you missed the original release events, contact me at jgimbel@wes to participate in the post-release—or, if you just want to know more about events or become a member.
It will be lots of fun! Remember those wonderful sets of “Invasion” and “Ravnica: City of Guilds”? “Shards of Alara” is going to be like that! It’s free, and you don’t need any cards to participate.
Also from the Pentagon corner is our Homecoming Game! At 12:00 noon this Sunday in the Butt C lounge! Bring whatever decks you like (or speak to me to get one, if you don’t have one), bring your friends, siblings, and rabid badgers and enjoy as we have a magical experience of mythic proportions!
Date: Sunday, Oct. 19
Time: 12:00 PM
Place: Butt C lounge
As a followup to this post, the first meeting of Pentagon will be Sunday, August 31st, in Exley. Come with your own deck at 1:30 or arrive at 12:30 and build your own with cards provided by members.

Hey everybody! Jared Gimbel ’11 and others are starting a Magic: The Gathering Pentagon league at Wes. Pentagon is semi-casual, semi-competitive, and open to anyone who wants to join. The first meeting will be held on the first weekend of school (times to be determined), with events running throughout the semester. Interested? Email jgimbel at wes for more information.
As a sidenote, any prospective students who used to play Magic should bring any cards they have. It’s a great way to bond with your hallmates, who more than likely used to play too, and are probably just as embarrassed as you are about the fact that you still known how to play.
