The Fantasy Flight Games team is on top of Star Wars: Legion with a whole batch of events & dates for Organized Play!
The Organized Play Events from Fantasy Flight Games have been a great source of community for participating players. Their World Championships attract a lot of attention from players and fans of their respective games. It shouldn’t be a surprise to see that Star Wars: Legion is getting the same treatment.

The game isn’t even out yet and FFG already has plans for a slew of Organized Play Events. Folks who are curious about this new game are going to have lots of opportunities to see it and play it thanks to these types of events. Keep in mind, these events are all geared for the Tournament Player only – casual players who are just interested in a new tabletop miniatures game that happens to be Star Wars (!!!) are going to be able to dive right in as well.
If you’re curious about the game we did get a demo of it at GenCon 50:
But we also encourage you to hit-up your FLGS for a demo and plan to check out a launch weekend event, too! The official release date is March 22nd – are you ready for it?
Star Wars: Legion invites you to enter the ground battles of the Galactic Civil War as the commander of a unique army of miniatures filled with troopers, powerful ground or repulsor vehicles, and iconic characters like Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker. While innovative mechanics for command and control simulate the fog of war and the chaos of battle, the game’s unpainted, easily assembled minis give you a canvas to create the Star Wars army you’ve always wanted to lead into battle—whether you fight for the monolithic, oppressive Galactic Empire or the ragtag Rebel Alliance.
