Come Play the World's Best
A Look Ahead at the FFG World Championship Weekend
Fantasy Flight Games is gearing up for our FFG World Championship Weekend!
The 2012 Regional Championship tournament season that ran from April to June was our largest and most successful ever. Players came out of it excited for the top-tier competition of the North American Championship events at Gen Con Indy. There, we added new games to our Organized Play program and saw players implement clever new strategies as they competed with the best players from across the continent.

Recently, we made the weekend’s schedule available for download. Today, and over the coming weeks, we’ll explore the event in greater detail, including looks at special rates on hotels, prizes, bonuses for early registration, the weekend’s side challenges, and the champion players arriving to defend their titles.
The Pinnacle of Organized Play
This is the first year that the FFG World Championship Weekend serves as the pinnacle of our Organized Play program.
We’ve taken great strides to make this a truly global event and build a foundation for future events. Some of our European partners have arranged to send their national champions. Other top players from around the world are making their own plans to attend and vie for the title of World Champion in their favorite games.
As we prepare to host the world, we’re directing our time, staff, and energy to making this event an awesome showcase for our LCGs and miniature games. Most importantly, we’re working to ensure that the addition of the FFG World Championship Weekend translates to a fun-filled, top-tier experience for all who attend.
Below are just a few of the advantages we are able to share with attendees:
- Special guest rates at local hotels.
- Exclusive prize support for all participants.
- Professional and custom terrain for our miniatures games.
- Extensive video coverage, including live streaming of key matches.
- Learn about the direction of Organized Play for 2013, and participate in a Q&A.
- Staff challenges: win a game against a participating FFG employee, and get a prize.
- The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game Fellowship Event.
- And more!
X-Wing™ finalists will play their match on a professionally crafted Death Star table.
