Mox Portland Grand Opening Birthday Party

You're invited! We're celebrating our first birthday at Mox Boarding House Portland, and we're going to pull out ALL the stops. Last year we opened our doors on July 10th 2020 and we couldn't quite throw the exciting party we wanted to. This year’s been filled with challenges for everyone, and we’re ecstatic to welcome you into our space and finally celebrate together! We'll have a full calendar of events, including a special Time Spiral Remastered Magic: the Gathering Draft and a Block Party for all ages, so make sure to stop by Mox Portland July 9th to July 16th. You can check in on the fun by following our Facebook page.

Get in the spirit and post using the #MoxPDXBirthday on Saturday for a chance to win a $500 gift basket! Read the full terms and conditions, and learn more. Below you can find a quick rundown of all of our events, and check out our online calendar to get all the details. Find the ones that pique your interest, and join us for some fun events in Portland!

In addition to winning normal draft booster packs, winners of these events can receive prizes like Secret Lairs, Guilds of Ravnica and Ravnica Allegiance Mythic Edition packs and more! We’ve even heard our good friend Cedric Phillips will stop by to join in on the action.

Block Party – July 10

All day Saturday, Mox Boarding House Portland will have entertainers, balloon artists, giant board games, a photobooth, and ready to play game demos for everyone. It’s your chance to hang out and play games with special guests like Tolarian Community College’s The Professor, cosplayer Teferi Magic, Cedric Phillips and more.

Everyone who stops by will receive a spin of our prize wheel (while supplies last) for a chance to win playmats, MTG promos, pins, and lots more. Don’t forget to show up early! The first 50 guests in the store will receive a special gift bag featuring lots of Mox goodies.
