FFG: Organized Play Has It’s Rewards

FFG previews the prizes at the North American Champs for all your favorite Star Wars Events & More!

This year at GenCon 2016 Fantasy Flight Games will host the North American Championships for SEVEN of their games. FFG has a really great competitive scene for a few reasons and I like to think one of those reasons is that you can win a seat at the next tier of Championships by winning your current one. For example, if you play in a local Store Championship, you can win a first-round bye at the Regional Championships. This continues through the Store-Regional-National Level and can even win you a slot at the Worlds championship as well.

The special thing about the North American Championship is that it’s open to all challengers and you can still win a spot at Worlds by winning there. If you want to see a full breakdown of how check out FFG’s Championship Series Site.

Now, let’s talk PRIZES! Aside from a reserved slot at Worlds you can also snag some sweet loot. In most cases everyone will get at least a card just for showing up. But the Rewards get better and better if you can make the cut to the next round…
