Store Championships are a new format of tournaments available to stores all over the world. They are prestigious, local events in which players can compete for custom prizes, bragging rights among their friends, and advancement into our Regional Championship tournaments later in the year.

You may run Store Championships for any or all of five featured games:

Retailers who run successful Store Championship tournaments will earn priority when we determine who will host our spotlighted Regional Championship tournaments later in the year.

The Store Championship tournament season runs from February through March. All applications are due by November 15th.

 

Store Championship Prizes

The centerpiece of each Store Championship event is a kit of exclusive, custom prizes. These kits are a step up from our standard 2014 tournament kits, and each includes prizes for the champion, finalists, Top 4, and participation prizes for thirty-two players.

X-Wing

Our custom X-Wing Store Championship kit features the following prizes:

  • Champion: Store Championship plaque; card box for ship cards, upgrade cards, and tokens; first place certificate worth a first-round bye at one Regional Championship
  • Runner-Up: Card box
  • Top 4*: Four acrylic range rulers
  • Participation: Thirty-two Ten Numb ship cards featuring movie still art.

LCGs®

Each of our custom LCG® Store Championship kits features the following prizes:

Champion: Store Championship plaque, deck box, and first place certificate worth a bye at one Regional Championship
Runner-Up: Deck box
Top 4*: Four custom, “Top 4” playmats
Participation: Thirty-two alternate art cards with full-bleed graphic design. The card varies with the game.

*Each Store Championship prize kit includes an extra X-Wing range ruler or LCG playmat. This extra prize is intended for the tournament organizer but may also be used as an additional prize.

How Do Store Championships Differ from Regional Championships?

Regional Championship tournaments are top-level events that draw the best players from across hundreds of miles. After our World and National Championships, these are the most important events in our tournament calendar. In order to ensure that each Regional Championship maintains its larger, regional nature and measures up to the standards warranted by these high-level events, we plan to sanction fewer of these tournaments going forward.

The introduction of Store Championship tournaments means that every retailer has the opportunity to run a high-level event. Moreover, hosting a successful Store Championship event is the key to having your store considered as a candidate to host one of our elite Regional Championship events later in the year!

 

Applying to Host an FFG Organized Play Event

The application window for our 2014 Store Championships is now closed.

In the coming weeks, we will have more information about other upcoming opportunities for you to get involved with FFG Organized Play. Be sure to check our website for updates.

Are You a Player?

If you’re an X-Wing player or a fan of one of our competitive LCGs, the most important thing you can do is talk to your local retailer about Store Championship tournaments.

Store Championship tournaments are designed to support local retailers and their loyal player bases, but if you want to help your favorite local game store run the most successful event possible, you can volunteer to serve as a tournament organizer, help advertise the event, or help build a local player base by running demos.

Remember, your first-place finish in a Store Championship is worth a first-round bye at any Regional Championship tournament, setting you one step forward on your path to victory!
