Always Something to Do

The 2015 World Championships Side Events Schedule Is Now Available

This November 4th – 8th, the FFG World Championships in Roseville, MN are your chance to prove yourself against the very best players in the world!

Battle for the fate of the galaxy, scheme to rule Westeros, obliterate planets from orbit, or do your best to pin a trace on an elusive Runner. No matter which Organized Play game you prefer, the World Championships are your chance to earn gamer immortality.

Attendees will find that there's much more to the FFG World Championships than just a series of Championship tournaments, and we have a full schedule of exciting side events to keep you busy all weekend long.

2015 World Championships Side Events

Whether you use these side events to prepare for the Championship events to follow or just to enjoy your favorite games with fellow players from around the world, they are all free for Worlds attendees to enter.*

*Participants in draft events will need to provide their own draft sets. The War of Five Kings Tournament for A Game of Thrones: The Card Game Second Edition is an exception to this rule; it will be a fully ticketed event, complete with promotional alternate art cards and a chance for the winner to design a Champion card.


Here are just a few highlights of this year's side events:

NOTE: Registration for all side events begins one hour before the listed start time.

Wednesday, On Demand – Android: Netrunner Drafts

Starting Wednesday, attendees gain the chance to enjoy LCG® draft play with Android: Netrunner drafts on demand. Draft tournaments are a great way to get yourself in a runner (or corporate) frame of mind before the more serious competitions begin. More than that, we'll have prize support for your group once you've completed your runs.

Friday, 5:00 PM – X-Wing, Imperials vs Rebels, Team Epic Event

Epic Play in X-Wing takes on all-new dimensions with the release of the Imperial Raider Expansion Pack, and this special World Championships side event is your chance to explore the Galactic Civil War on an entirely different scale. Coordinate your squad with your teammate and take your stand for either the Imperial Navy or Rebel Alliance. Prizes will be awarded to all members of the faction that wins the war of this overall event!

Saturday, 10:00 AM – A Game of Thrones: The Card Game Second Edition, War of the Five Kings Tournament

This is the second edition event you've been waiting for! The 2015 A Game of Thrones: The Card Game World Championships are all first edition, but once we've crowned its final Champions, it will be time to turn our attentions toward second edition and your renewed struggles for the Iron Crown.

The War of the Five Kings Tournament is the weekend's only ticketed non-Championship event, and the winner, like the 2015 World Champions, will win the chance to work the developers to design a card for the game. The tickets for this momentous event are bound to sell out fast, so if you want to be a part, be sure to register early!

Sunday, 10:00 AM – Star Wars™: The Card Game 2v2 Tournament

Find a partner and battle for the fate of the galaxy in the popular two-versus-two format for Star Wars: The Card Game! Will you pair Scum with Sith? Will you unite the galaxy's few remaining Jedi with the Rebel Alliance? With their rules for uniqueness and the varied strengths of the game's factions, two-versus-two tournaments for Star Wars: The Card Game encourage all sorts of interesting tactical and strategic combinations.

A Five-Day Celebration of Games

FFG's 2015 World Championships are five full days of great games, and our side event schedule ensures you'll find plenty of ways to entertain yourself whenever you're not competing in one of our Championship tournaments. Moreover, in addition to the events we've highlighted and the other events on the schedule, you'll find league play all weekend long, and you'll have plenty of chances to meet players from around the world and challenge them in open gaming.
