|Retailers: Pre-order Your Summer 2014 Tournament Kits
Build and Support Your Local Player Community with a New Season of Tournament Kits
|Organized Play | Published 24 April 2014|
Six Summer 2014 Tournament Kits are now available for pre-order through our B2B store or your distributor!
Tournament Kits are the foundation of FFG’s Organized Play programs, and each kit contains prize support and helpful suggestions on how to best support your local community. With these tools, stores can host leagues, weekly events, or even a large-scale tournament to draw in players and build a thriving group of players. (For those looking for Game Night Kits, see “Where are Game Night Kits?” below.)
What Games are Supported?
Whether you’re leading players on a charge against an Orc army, helping them start a run on a heavily iced server, or piloting a smuggling ship through enemy lines in a galaxy far, far away—Tournament Kits can make your store the local hub of a thriving, global community centered on Fantasy Flight Organized Play. Visit the links below to learn more about each of the games supported by Organized Play; then pre-order your Tournament Kits today!
Where are Game Night Kits?
As Organized Play and the games we support grow, we continually look at how to improve our programs. Starting with the Summer 2014 Season, pre-orders and release schedules for Tournament Kits and Game Night Kits will follow separate timelines. Tournament Kits will continue to use the schedule we have followed in the past, with three four-month seasons per year, and Game Night Kits will change to a new schedule that will be announced soon.
We want to support both Tournament Kits and Game Night Kits in the best way possible and believe separating their release schedules allows us to increase each kit’s effectiveness as we move forward. As always, we will continue to look for ways to improve this system.
More information on the schedule for future Game Nights Kits and how to purchase them will be announced shortly.
A New Name for Tournament Kit Seasons
Another change as we move forward is the names we use to describe each season of Tournament Kits. While a simple numeral has sufficed in the past for separating our different Tournament Kit Seasons, we felt that we could improve upon our old name and give players something that is more evocative. In order to achieve this, we have changed the names to represent the seasons of the year in which the majority of each Season takes place (Spring, Summer, Winter).
The amount of promotional material in Tournament Kits for the Summer 2014 Season has not changed.

The exclusive items and alternate are cards from these Summer 2014 Tournament Kits will be available for a limited period of time only, so be sure to talk with your local retailer about hosting tournaments for our Organized Play games.
Season 1 Warhammer: Diskwars Tournament Kits were a huge hit, and player demand for our other tournament games, such as Android: Netrunner and X-Wing™, continues to grow.
