Fantasy Flight Games have just announced sign-ups for their Star Wars X-Wing Regional Championship season. All interested stores are requested to sign-up with FFG via their website link and events will run from May 1st through July 31st inclusive.
What is a Regional Championship?
Regional Championships are premier tournaments sanctioned by Fantasy Flight Games and feed their annual World Championships in November.
Retailers interested in hosting a 2014 Regional Championship event must fill out FFG’s online application form before February 5th 23:59 CST (Central Standard Time) to be considered. If you have difficulties we recommend contacting their Customer Service folks immediately.
The Expansion of Organized Play
Store Championships now gives each store a chance to host a premier tournament and the winner is granted a first-round bye at a FFG Regional Championship, Regional Championships now take their true place as a gateway to their National Championships.
The number of Regional Championships varies depending on population. Each US region will host no more than two X-Wing Regional Championships (see map), with each event attracting the highest level of competition. Whether you are an elite veteran with harrowing battle stories or a new recruit looking to go toe-to-toe with the likes of Wedge Antilles and Soontir Fel, Regional Championships are where some of the fiercest X-Wing dogfights will take place.
Regional Championship Prizes
A bye is not the only prize on the line at an X-Wing Regional Championship. Each Regional Championship kit comes with exclusive prizes. This year’s kit has gotten bigger, with prizes for up to 64 players.
