A Commander Party is a WPN-organized event introduced in 2022 for Innistrad: Double Feature. It is a one-day event where players are immersed in a story affected by their in-game choices, offering an opportunity for newer players to participate in a casual in-store event and get absorbed in the world of Magic.
The setup is based on a narrative tale. Players, who are split into pods, experience the story from beginning to end during the event. Players only need a Commander deck to participate.
Each player receives a card, assigning them to a faction. Throughout the event, a video guiding the players through the story will ask the player with the most of a resource to raise their faction card in the air—the faction with the most raised cards moves forward a space on the game board, where each space provides an in-game bonus for all players in that faction.
