Registration Is OPEN!

August 9 - 11, 2o24

How it all started

In 2017, Chris Pepin invited a group of local southern California magic players to gather around their mountain house to throw some cards and enjoy the game in honor of Chris's birthday.

This event has grown and keeps growing.

Since that first meet-up of only 7 players, Chris's wife Denni continues to host 70+ players at this annual event of "Clawsome Proportion".


About the Annual Risk

This year marks the 5th anniversary for the Socal Spawners Event. Old school players from all over the US and abroad register and play.

Below are the standard EC rules for the tournament and the Scribble Ante events.

Important: Each player is responsible for the safety and security of their own card collection. We recommend for high value cards, you keep collectible insurance while away from home.

Important: Before Registering

Tournament and beach bash will be held at a Federal Military Base event center. There are no outside alcohol or drugs allowed on base. 

Players must provide a valid US drivers' license to gain access through Camp Pendleton's main gate to attend.

Main Event
Risk Tournament of Homarids

Tournament Rules
  1. Don't be a dick
  2. Legal Sets
    Old School 93-94 decks may consist of cards from these sets printed in 1993-94:
    Alpha | Beta | Unlimited | Collector’s Edition (CE) | International Collector’s Edition (IE) | Arabian Nights | Antiquities | Revised | Legends | The Dark |Fallen Empires
  3. This tournament will also allow all non-foil cards from the sets above, that were reprinted in any language with the original frame and original art. So for example, a Chronicles City of Brass, Fifth Edition Wrath of God, Time Spiral Psionic Blast, and Collector’s Edition Mox Ruby would all be legal (original frame + original art), while an Ice Age Swords to Plowshares or Arena 1996 Counterspell would not be legal (different art). The misprinted Revised Serendib Efreet (with Ifh-Biff Efreet’s art, and green border) is of course allowed, because it was printed in one of the original sets in 1994 (Revised). We always encourage you to seek out the oldest and coolest versions of cards you can find, but these can serve as your de facto substitutes for the cards printed in 93-94.
  4. Absolutely no proxies and fake cards allowed.
  5. Finally, the following promotional cards from 1994 are also legal: Arena, Sewers of Estark, and Nalathni Dragon.
  6. The following cards are banned: Bronze Tablet | Contract from Below | Darkpact | Demonic Attorney | Jeweled Bird | Rebirth | Tempest Efreet
  7. The following cards are restricted (maximum of 1 of each card per deck): Ancestral Recall | Balance | Black Lotus | Braingeyser | Chaos Orb | Channel | Demonic Tutor | Library of Alexandria | Mana Drain | Mind Twist | Mox Emerald | Mox Jet | Mox Pearl | Mox Ruby | Mox Sapphire | Regrowth | Sol Ring | Time Walk | Time Twister | Wheel of Fortune
  8. Mind twist. only black mana may be used to cast mind twist. this includes the "x" portion.
  9. Blocking tapped creatures deal no damage (dust off those icy manipulators).
  10.  4 recall legal. 4 time vault legal. 4 shahazarad legal.
  11.  And the biggest one. Draws DO happen at this event. get your game done or you both suffer. Chaos orb flips will not be deciding games at this event. unless you miss that serra angel in game 3. Do not feel bad for calling the judge on a slow player. practice playing with your deck so the decisions come faster.
