Commander Night is Wednesday Night at JustPlay!

Ritchie McAlley

Commander is a hugely popular format nearly everyone we speak to has a deck and wants to play, I get asked more and more when do we hold Commander nights the last set release Commander 2017 was a huge success (and back in stock soon!), 

So we will be adding Commander to our Weekly Schedule every Wednesday night.



Multiplayer will be the format of choice with us making pods of 3 or 4 players Ideally.

  • 2-3 games a night
  • 4 points 1st place, 3 points 2nd place, 3rd place 2 points, 4th place 1 point
  • 1 st round random pods, 2nd round onward highest point players paired together
  • 3 of our Commander Ploy's randomly selected each round
  • 1 point for each ploy you achieve listed below
  • All points recorded in a league with prizes for the 4 Quarter Champions
