X-Wing 2e Tournament

With the new edition of X-Wing coming in mid-September we are excited to run our first X-Wing tournament using the new rules!

When: Saturday, September 22nd, 12:00pm (Registration begins at 11:00am)

Entry Fee: $10.00 // 3 Hero’s Rewards

Format: This event follows the Basic Tournament Structure, 200pts Extended, 75mins/round, ‘Relaxed Tier’, 3-4 Swiss Rounds (based on attendance).

Stronghold Members: Stronghold Members will get a Hero’s Reward (Membership has its perks!)

Prizes: We will add store credit to a prize pool ($10.00 per participant minus the cost of the prize kit).  In addition we will be pooling our older kits and providing additional prizes that are still relevant (so older cards that are now obsolete will not be added to the prize pool).

What if the Release Doesn’t Go As Planned?: If the release date gets pushed back we will postpone this event.  Also, if FFG ends up having release event goodies, or a special event type – that we actually get by this day – we will amend this event to run the special release event instead.  We will keep you posted!

So join us to celebrate the new edition of X-Wing!
