2015 Fantasy Flight Regionals at Game Universe

We are proud to announce that Game Universe Franklin has been selected as the host for four Fantasy Flight Regional Tournaments; Call of Cthulhu LCG, Imperial Assault, 40k Conquest, and Star Wars LCG.

Star Wars: The Card Game May 2nd

Imperial Assault: Skirmish May 9th

Call of Cthulhu May 30th

Warhammer: 40,000: Conquest July 25th

 

All events are hosted by our Franklin store, located at:

6550 S Lovers Lane

Franklin, WI 53132

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
Prizes will be distributed according to each FFG event kit, plus a store credit prize pool.
For every player beyond the 12th, $20 will be added to the pool. 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.

• Players have a time limit of 1 minute per turn. If, during this time period a player has failed to make a successful play, all tiles remaining on the table (not as sets) must be returned to the player’s rack, in addition to 3 penalty tiles from the pool.

• A set on the table that includes a joker may not be manipulated while it contains the joker. It can be added to, but cannot be split apart, unless the joker is replaced

• The tournament will be played in three rounds of four games each. The player that wins the most  games is the winner of the round. In the event of more than one person with the same number of wins, the person with the most points will be deemed the winner.
