They will continue until all cards have been chosen from the first booster pack. Repeat this process for the next two boosters, switching the direction in which the boosters are passed around the table. Once all the packs have been drafted, everyone builds a deck from the cards they have selected. You may add as many basic lands (Plains, Islands, Swamps, Mountains, and Forests) to your deck as you’d like, but each deck must have at least 40 cards.

8 person drafts will be run as sanctioned swiss drafts. Less than 8 person drafts will be run as casual, single game Conspiracy style events.
