Star Wars: The Card Game™ Learn-to-Play Tournament

In addition to three days of sterling competition and camaraderie, all players who compete in our World Championship events will get custom participation prizes, such as those we’ve already shown for A Game of Thrones, Dust Tactics, and Warhammer: Invasion. However, when you pre-register, you get more.

Pre-registered attendees get a free FFG World Championship Weekend t-shirt and the opportunity to participate in the World’s first-ever tournament for Star Wars: The Card Game™!

On Sunday the 11th, at 1 PM, before Star Wars: The Card Game is even available for public release, sixteen players will sit down to battle for the fate of the galaxy. Using pre-constructed decks for the Jedi and Sith factions, players will demonstrate their mastery of the Force™ in a tournament that tests skill over deck-building.

How will you learn the ways of the Force? We’ll have demos of the game starting on Friday and running all weekend. Furthermore, pre-registered attendees can challenge FFG staff members to games of Star Wars both Friday and Saturday and win a chance to qualify for Sunday’s touranment. Just look for the FFG staff members sitting at the designated Star Wars: The Card Game tables and challenge them to a game! You’ll get a demo, a chance to learn the rules, and a chance to qualify for Sunday’s learn-to-play tournament.

 If anyone is planning on attending the Star Wars Tournament I'd love to hear some details.

The 2 Champs and A Champ Podcast (an AGOT podcast) just updated their Facebook page with this:

"Omfg! Free copies of Star Wars for every preregistrant!"

Sounds like there'll be plenty of information coming out of Worlds soon, even from those who don't participate in the tournament.

And the release can't be too far away if they're handing 'em out this weekend! How long was the lag between GenCon and the official release of Netrunner? That could give us some ballpark on when to expect a release, which seems more and more imminent every day.

 For anyone reading this who happens to have a copy and is willing to send me scans I'd appreciate it :D I've already got  a spoiler database up and running just waiting for images.

 

oh and 3 weeks from gencon to netrunner release.
