With the success of our Open Houses and our ongoing Android: Netrunner gaming night, we’ve decided to further expand our on-site events to include Organized Play. Our first such event will be an Android: Netrunner Draft Tournament on July 26th, and we’re planning to hold events for more games in the future.
What is Organized Play?
Organized play events are opportunities for players who own a particular game to compete against one another in a structured, friendly environment. While exact competition format will vary from event to event, the basic structure is the same: players pay a small sign-up fee (usually around $5, if no special materials are required for the event), and bring their own game set. They play a series of games against other players in a tournament that lasts an evening or an afternoon, and generally does not involve player elimination. The goal is to give everyone a chance to play against a broad range of opponents. At the end of the event, all participants receive a limited-edition card or other game expansion, and the top 2 or 3 finishers are awarded larger prizes.
What games will you be offering?
At the moment, we have access to organized play materials for the following games:
- Android: Netrunner
- Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game
- Star Realms
- Marvel Dice Masters: Avengers vs X-Men
We’ll be running events at each of our upcoming Open Houses, and may also run regular evening events for games with a lot of interested players. Please comment below to let us know what events you’d be most interested in attending (you can choose more than one), and we’ll start planning new events for the most popular choices.
