Formats are varied at Launch Parties, including Sealed Deck and Booster Draft. In Sealed Deck, you build your deck out of a set number of cards given to you at the start of the event. A Booster Draft involves selecting cards from a larger pool of players, usually eight, and then building your deck out of the cards you draft.
