What Is a Regional Championship Tournament?

Regional Championships are major tournament events sanctioned by Fantasy Flight Games and our international partners. Whether you’re a veteran player looking to play among peers, or a newcomer looking to test your mettle against the best, Regional Championship tournaments provide an exciting outlet to experience your favorite game in a structured, competitive environment.

If you’re a retailer or tournament organizer interested in hosting a 2013 Regional Championship event, then fill out our online application form by Thursday, January 31st to be considered. (See "Retailers and Tournament Organizers" below for more details.) If you’re a player and wish there was a tournament in your local area, encourage your local retailer or tournament organizer to sign up today.

Retailers and Tournament Organizers

Connect with your players and grow your local community by hosting a Regional Championship event at your venue! Approved tournaments are promoted directly on the Fantasy Flight Games website, and these high-profile events are a great way to bring players to your location...but you must apply by this Thursday, and a limited number of venues will be selected.

Regional Championships draw players from far and wide to compete in fun, structured, and competitive events. Even if this would be your first time hosting a Fantasy Flight Games Regional event, you are encouraged to apply. These tournaments are a great way to become the center of your local gaming community!

The 2013 Regional Championship season will run from April 1st through June 30th, and the deadline for all applications is Thursday, January 31, 2013 at 23:59 GMT (Greenwich Mean Time). A full tournament kit with prize support will be made available for purchase to all approved hosts.

For Players

Regional Championships give you a chance to meet new players, reconnect with old friends, and test your abilities in a tournament environment. Meet other fans and discover new strategies for your favorite game. Have fun, compete for prizes, and see how you fare against your fellow players!

There are prizes to be won for each of the games represented at the 2013 Regional Championship events, but players are also competing for an even greater prestige. The top player at each Regional Championship wins a coveted Golden Ticket, which grants him or her a first round bye and free entry to four days of global competition at the 2013 FFG World Championship Weekend, November 7 – 10 in Roseville, MN.

If you’re interested in participating in a 2013 Regional Championship event, be sure to check our website on February 15th when we announce the venues that will be hosting tournaments (Players: Please note that some Regional Championship venues may charge an entry fee).
