2017 Star Wars: Imperial Assault North American Championship Prizes

  • Participation – Obi-Wan Kenobi ensured that the Death Star plans reached the Rebellion by disabling its tractor beam, and now his alternate art prize card can help to ensure your stealthy victory! In addition, each competitor receives a stunning commemorative 2017 North American Championship coin.
  • Top Third – After the dust settles from the Swiss rounds, players who placed among the top third of all competitors will receive a set of eight objective tokens: two each of four colors.
  • Top 32 – The premium three-compartment deckbox (pictured below), bearing the North American Championship logo, awaits those who ascend to the top 32 of final standings.
  • Top 16 – A hefty medal will be draped around the neck of each competitor that ascends to the Top 16, bearing an inscription and game logo on its reverse.
  • Finishing Placement – An incredible playmat is awarded to each player who blasts their way into the Top 8. Each playmat bears an icon displaying the rank its bearer finished the event with, including Top 8, Top 4, 2nd, and 1st.
  • Top 4 – Each of these players will have the opportunity to build on their incredible performance at the World Championship by earning a free reserved seat next May!
  • Finalist – A plaque commemorates an outstanding accomplishment, and is complimented with a bye at the World Championship next May!
  • Champion – In addition to a radiant trophy, the North American Champion wins the chance to inspire the selection and creation of a future alternate art prize card! A free flight and hotel room for the next World Championship will bring them to the pinnacle of competition, where they receive a bye in the first round. The champ is even allowed an additional free reserved seat, to bring a friend or companion to compete alongside them at Worlds.

Note: If a Top 4 player already has a free reserved Star Wars: Imperial Assault World Championship seat, it will pass down to the next highest-ranking player without one. Prizes relating to the World Championship cannot be deferred, and byes and travel awards will not pass down. 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.
