What is a Store Championship?
Every store in good standing has the opportunity to run a single Store Championship for each game supported by Organized Play by pre-ordering a kit six months before its release. These tournaments are meant to be a highly-accessible introduction to the competitive Championship series of tournaments.
Relaxed Tournament Tier: Tournaments at this tier are welcoming to all players, regardless of experience level. The focus is on creating a fun and friendly environment. At the Relaxed tier, the leaders of the event (organizer, marshal, and/or judge) may play in the event as long as there are two or more designated leaders.
Basic Tournament Structure: The Basic tournament structure is designed to be very accessible, especially for newer participants. This structure provides a tournament experience that requires a modest commitment of time and resources from organizers and players.
Rolling in Credits
Over the coming months, numerous players will attend 2016 Store Championships in an effort to win these awesome prizes. Don’t miss out on your chance to acquire some of these prizes for yourself and add them to your collection!
Note: The alternate art cards in this kit are produced via FFG's In-House Manufacturing and may appear slightly different in color and texture from the game's other cards. To be tournament legal, these cards must be sleeved with opaque or art sleeves.
