Prepare yourself for the 1st Annual Store Championship at Kryptonite Kollectibles. It should be a fun afternoon with some great prizes to add to your collection. Here are the specifics, so mark it on your calendar and we’ll see you there!

 

When: Saturday, March 22

Time: register at 11:30pm, play runs 12:00 pm – 6 pm

Where: 1441 Plainfield Ave, Janesville, WI 53545, (608) 758-2100

Format: 100 point squads, normal build rules

four 75 minute or five 60 minute Swiss rounds to determine standings (depends on attendance)

Entry Fee:  $5

 

 

Here's a link to FFG's info on Store Championships:

http://www.fantasyfl...s.asp?eidn=4476

 

The centerpiece of each Store Championship event is a kit of exclusive, custom prizes. These kits are a step up from FFG's standard 2014 tournament kits, and each includes prizes for the champion, finalists, Top 4, and participation prizes for thirty-two players.

 

The custom X-Wing Store Championship kit features the following prizes:

  • Champion: Store Championship plaque; card box for ship cards, upgrade cards, and tokens; first place certificate worth a first-round bye at one Regional Championship
  • Runner-Up: Card box
  • Top 4*: Four acrylic range rulers
  • Participation: Thirty-two Ten Numb ship cards featuring movie still art.

 

 

Hope to see you there!

One month to go bump ... you are practicing your squads, right?  :>)

 

Sounds like we'll have a good turnout.

Does one need to sign up in advance for this or is it just a show up and play event?

There are a lot. A Holiday Inn Express, Microtel, Ramada, Econo Lodge, Hampton Inn and several others. You're best bet is probably just to Google "Janesville, WI hotels" and figure out what works best for your budget. Most of the local hotels are approximately 5 minutes or so from Kryptonite on Plainfield. Just look for the locations on the north end of town.

Curious, where are you travelling from to go to a tournament in Janesville that you will be getting a hotel/motel?

He and others may be coming from Omaha. They may stop in Des Moines to pick me up as well. Plans are tentative as of now, but this could shape up to be an epic tourney. :)

Wow! That would be epic! There is no Milwaukee GSC that day either so we could draw from that market as well.

Janesville is only 60,000 people, so anything in town is within 15 minutes of the store.  GalacticFunk noted the ones on the North/Northeast side which are closest.  But let us know if you need anything more specific.

 

Felt compelled to join us after the discussion of the Nebraska crew on SWMiniverse?  If so, we'll have you guys as guests all the time.  :>)

That would be great to have NE and IA players join us.  SWM Battle of Hoth at the hotel afterwards?  :>)

edited first post to reflect:

 

We’ll do four 75 or five 60 minute rounds; depends on attendance.  Results of Swiss will determine standings.

 

We want to finish around the store closing time of ~6pm.

Still not sure if I will make it. If I can talk my son into going that would up the chances. We will see.

FYI -- The store received 16 of the Imperial Aces packs in case you are looking for one.

 

Or maybe we'll add one to the prize list.  :>)

19 players from a 185 mile radius.

14 Rebel and 5 Imperial.  3 Rebel and 1 Imperial in the top 4 reflected that same ratio.

 

Final standings:

  1. Ryan 4-0 and 20 points
  2. Shawn 3-1 and 15 points
  3. Siri 3-1 and 15 points
  4. Chilo 3-1 and 15 points
  5. Jake 3-1
  6. Steve S 3-1
  7. Tristan 2-2
  8. Greg 2-2
  9. Aaron 2-2
  10. Mark F 2-2
  11. Troy 2-2
  12. Steve L 2-2
  13. Dan 2-2
  14. Owen 2-2
  15. Mark V 1-3
  16. Ted 1-3
  17. Alex 1-3
  18. Tim 0-4
  19. Tom L 0-4

Jake and Tristan were voted as Sportsmanship by their fellow players so they each received a ship expansion courtesy of Kryptonite Kollectibles.

 

A nod to Tristan for having to face four of the top 6 players.  He defeated 6th and 2nd and then lost to 1st and 5th in what looks to be the toughest schedule of the day (I'm not trying to slight those who finished higher by laying a path of destruction in their path).

 

A nod to Troy whose day started at 2am, included work before play, and covered about 700 miles.

 

A nod to Siri who rolled 4 crits on 4 dice to finish the last game.

 

Thanks to all who came out.  It was great meeting new people, seeing familiar faces, matching forum names with live people, and seeing much great gameplay throughout the day with some epic moments.
