The Throne Awaits

The 2016 A Game of Thrones: The Card Game World Championship Prizes


The cycle started with Store Championships, as players faced off against their locals and friends. Later, players made the trip out to Regional Championships, making some great journeys, friends, and stories to tell down the road. National Championships quickly followed and the competition was even fiercer as people traveled from all over to attempt to claim the title. The cycle is nearing completion as we the 2016 World Championship approaches. In November, the knights of the realm will sharpen their steel and meet for one final battle in Roseville, MN in order to determine who is worthy to sit on the throne.

Our World Championships will be an unforgettable experience. We are extremely excited to see world-class competition as hundreds of passionate players make new friends and forge memories that will last a lifetime on the biggest stage.
