The Future of FFG Organized Play
Though we’re thrilled to host the World Championship events and keep them sharply in focus today and tomorrow, the FFG World Championship Weekend is more than the culmination of the year’s tournament calendar. We’re also celebrating the future of FFG Organized Play with a slate of great participation events.
- Demos of our games all weekend long, including previews of Star Wars™: The Card Game
- Friday and Saturday, fans of Dust Tactics and Dust Warfare can compete in our Dust Painting Competition
- On Sunday, Middle-earth’s greatest heroes face deadly new challenges in our The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game Fellowship Event
- Also, on Sunday, sixteen lucky players will be the first in the world to decide the fate of the galaxy in a preview tournament for Star Wars: The Card Game!
Meanwhile, Senior Vice President of Communications and Digital Business Steve Horvath will host a discussion and share information about the future of FFG Organized Play. This conversation will run three times over the course of the weekend, so all interested attendees should have a chance to learn what’s in store for FFG Organized Play in 2013!
Time to Dive into the Action
We’re anxious to meet all those enthusiastic players who have taken their time to join us for this exciting event, and if you happen to be in the area, we encourage you to join us. If you can’t make your way to our headquarters in Roseville, MN this weekend, then we hope you can take part in the action by joining us at our streaming coverage on justin.tv and by watching for follow-up reports in the days to come.
Let the FFG World Championship Weekend begin!
