Draft Weekend is a WPN-supported event in the weekend following the release set launch of each set. On Draft Weekend booster drafts featuring the new set are organized at Local Game Stores.[1] Draft Weekend was introduced for the Amonkhet release as an extend version of the Launch Party.

As the buzz around the previous set's draft environment reaches its floor, Draft Weekend renews the excitement as players get to dive into fresh content. Many stores meet that demand by running drafts on-demand: as soon as you've got eight players, sit down and get started. Initially, a dedicated foil promo card was available for participants. From Core Set 2020 onward, this was replaced by a card from the WPN promo pack, distributed at the discretion of the stores.[2]
