The events will take place in our spacious game room, feature custom tables and gaming supplies, cool swag raffles, and more! Each event will cost $25 at the door, or $20 if you pre-register online. Events are conveniently located next door to three restaurants, and a spacious overflow room that can allow us to accommodate up to 120 gamers at a time. Side events and additional prizes will be added according to attendance. All events begin registration at 11 am and seat at 12 pm.

 

Prizes

Exact prizes will be determined based on attendance, but will generally follow a split of 50% for participation awards, and 50% for standings. Additional participation prizes will be awarded to players who finish all swiss rounds (prior to any cut).

 

Prizes vary, but in the past (and with a large enough crowd) we’ve done “related games” as prizes. So for example, Imperial Assault, we might give X-Wing, Armada, Edge of the Empire, or something else Star Wars related as an additional prize. We often give out gift cards to a good chunk of players, typically in $5-$15 units, often based on finishing all the rounds or at random.

 

Event details will be posted on our Facebook page and calendar. You are welcome to preregister any time between now and the day before the event. Payment is required at the time of pre-registration.
