Join Us for the Warhammer: Invasion North American and World Championships!
Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game | Published 26 June 2012

Glory awaits and so the armies of the world gather anew for war. The promise of victory hangs heavy in the air. Prophets gnash and wail, tearing at their hair and preaching visions of doom to any who will listen. Seers curse the heavens above for massacres yet to transpire. Merciless generals make devious battle plans, heroic commanders inspire their forces and warmongering kings bellow fiery rhetoric that heats the blood of men.
    –Warhammer, “A Time of War”

Regional Champions everywhere have emerged victorious from the battles of Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game. Their foes lie fallen or cowering, driven into submission, and as these champions survey the lands they have won and review the glories they have claimed, they ask themselves, “What new challenges await me?”

Well, the Old World is rife with endless conflict, and so is the Warhammer: Invasion tournament season. Whether you’re a Regional Champion looking for your next conquest, a new contender freshly arrived to the battlefields, or a survivor looking to exact your revenge, Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to remind you that the biggest battles still lie ahead…

Come join us, and claim your glory. Fantasy Flight Games looks forward to hosting two of the year’s most thrilling Warhammer: Invasion events, the North American Championship tournament at Gen Con Indy and the World Championship at our FFG World Championship Weekend!

North American Championships

A step up from our Regional Championships, our North American Championship tournament is a highly competitive, top-level event that draws participants from locations far and wide. The North American Championship features unique, high-level prize support and provides players their final chance to win first-round byes and free entry to our FFG World Championship Weekend in November.

This year, Gen Con Indy will play host to the Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game North American Championships on Friday, August 17th. Registration begins at 3 pm at our table in the Event Hall, and the preliminary rounds run from 4 pm to 8 pm.

The top eight players from the North American Championship tournament win first-round byes and free entry at our FFG World Championship Weekend. Additionally, the North American Championship tournament winner can claim the most imaginative prize in gaming – the chance to work with our developers to design a card!

Not quite ready for the field of battle? Fantasy Flight Games is also hosting a Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game warmup tournament at Gen Con. Registration for this more casual event begins Thursday the 16th at 11 am, with tournament play to follow at noon. This is a great opportunity to dive into the battles, the drama, and the legends of Warhammer: Invasion, and it’s also a great chance to ready your forces for the epic confrontations of the North American Championship.

Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game World Championship

Ever dreamed of becoming a World Champion? The Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game World Championship tournament marks the pinnacle of the game’s Organized Play.

This November 9th – 11th, players from around the world will converge upon the Fantasy Flight Games Event Center in Roseville, MN to take part in the FFG World Championship Weekend. As the attendance of our championship-level events has grown, we have looked for a way to better showcase the best players for our LCGs and miniatures games at a venue where we could best focus our attention on the world-class participants of these events. In preparation for this event, we have secured extra space in the same building as the Fantasy Flight Games Event Center, ensuring room for hundreds of participants. Now, the World Championship Weekend represents a true hallmark in FFG Organized Play as we prepare to host champions from other nations and foster a truly global event!

Players who attend the Warhammer: Invasion World Championship will enjoy tremendous support for the game they love. We can direct more time, more staff, and more energy to this event, and we expect it to be an exciting, positive, and memorable experience.

Of course, there are prizes, too. Among those prizes the Warhammer: Invasion World Champion will claim is the right to follow in Sigmar’s footsteps and forever change the face of the Old World. The World Champion wins the right to work with the game’s developers to design a card destined to fuel future battles!
