Magic The Gathering in Seoul and Innistrad
« on: October 04, 2011, 08:26:58 am »
Any magic geeks out there?  :-X

I'm looking to buy a couple of Innistrad intro packs in Seoul. Can anyone give me directions?

Alternatively, any website other than www.playfirst.co.kr sell magic in Korea? I really would rather order from home since I live near Daegu, 2+ hours away from Seoul.

There's actually a shop in Daegu.  Bluemtg does have packs and stuff.  As far as I know, however, a lot of shops are sold out so you gotta wait a bit til a new shipment comes out.

Have you ever been to that shop? Can you give me some quick directions? I know one near Outback Steakhouse in downtown Daegu, but they only sell boosters and even those they have such a small quantity of. :(

Sorry, I live in Seoul... I only know about it because another poster also lives in Daegu and mentioned it.

Also, Wizards has said (here http://www.wizards.com/magic/magazine/article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/arcana/782) that they will begin printing Magic cards IN KOREAN starting October 14th! This is great news for Koreans, but does anyone know a website (Korean or English) where I can buy Korean cards?

I assume a Toys R Us will have the cards in stock once they come out in Korean? I'd love to bring a deck home that had a bunch of Korean cards in it

I've been looking for more "exact" information about where to buy Magic boosters/boxes in Daegu.
A poster said there is a shop near Outback steakhouse but without more information I haven't been able to find it.

Anyone know of the location for Daegu Magic shops to draft or buy packs etc?

There is a pretty cool MTG/Warhammer shop around Children's Grand Park called Tic Toc.  They sell boosters, boxes, fatpacks whatever.  I am pretty sure they have drafts there pretty often as well.  I am going to ask some friends around the village and try to get some more info.  I would love to draft Innistrad, looks like a really fun set to draft.
where da party-boom-barty?

I wanted to find a group of waygooks to do draft and FNM's with and found it here, if anyone is interested:

As far as Tic Tocs, they have drafts regularly as does Michaels and that shop in Hongdae.

If you can't find anyone to play with in your area, you could just play Pokemon cards with your students after class.  They would enjoy that.

Hey - reposting. I have a friend who's looking to get me to ship some Magic boxes back for him in the states. Does anyone have some current info re: places to buy it in Seoul? Looking for Korean cards specifically.

Theres a face book group which has directions to some shops

I don't use Facebook, unfortunately.

Any suggested locations? I tried searching, but didn't have much luck. Where do you guys buy your cards?

I've been to Michaels, Tic Toc and Dive Dice and of the 3 I like Dive Dice best.

It is a few minutes walk from Hongik University subway station (exit 2) in Seoul. It's next to Jesters Pie shop.

It's beena  while(arround November I think) since I have been there. The Fat Packs have English cards but I'm guessing most of the boosters now are the Korean ones.
If you have a Korean ID (a foreigners ARC number wont work) you can order from Blue MTG. Anyway hopefully someone who has been more recently can chip in.

hey there.. michaels has kind of shifted their cards... a few shops worth going to:
Hyewa Dive and Dice
Hongdae Dive and Dice
Nakseongdae (Near Seoul National University) "Michaels"
Gangbyeon "Michaels"

Even if you don't have facebook, this website also hosts magic events monthly:
