The letter T!wo weeks ago, we announced a contest that related to Underworld Awakening, which will hit movie theatres tomorrow, January 20, 2012. To refresh your memory of the movie, here's the trailer again.

The Grand Prize was a Sony Tablet S (with cradle, screen protector, AC adaptor, and an entertainment bundle), a signed poster from Underworld Awakening, 72 Innistrad boosters, and a free screening of Underworld Awakening for the winner and up to a hundred guests!

The second-place winners will each receive six Innistrad boosters and a pack of Underworld Awakening swag including a T-shirt, a poster, a soundtrack CD, and a ticket to see the movie.

We received so many great entries talking about a lot of great WPN stores it was hard to choose the winners. As a thank you to everyone that send in their essay we will be sending them their own copy of the 2011 Holiday card "Yule Ooze".

The winner is Alex Bastecki, who wrote the following essay about The Adventurer's Guild in Harrisburg, PA.

Why is my local store a great place to go?

This one is easy.
Having a play space to play Magic, D&D and board games
Even when they aren't scheduled.

A place where attendance has almost
Doubled for drafts and FNMs since the new owner took over in the fall, where even he will battle
Vintage with his customers.
Everyone in the store gets along,
Nurturing a community setting where all are welcome to play.
The midnight Magic prereleases allow players their first chance to howl at the moon while playing
Until the sun comes up the next day.
Rolling critical hits make the Dungeon Masters cringe during our D&D Encounters, who play beside
Every level of Magic player, from the casual Commander player to competitive level grinders.
Rarely will you find a time where something is not going on, whether it be
Slinging spells from a Pauper cube or rolling critical hits against a Dungeon Master.

Guiding the transformation of the store is Jason,
Under whom, with his crew of Tournament Organizers, Dungeon Masters, and Magic Judges, are
Improving not only the rich wealth of programs of the WPN system, but the
Look and feel of the store, giving players a place they can proud to be
Doing the things they love.
