Saturday, August 11!
Entry details: Registration is required. To register, send an email to Brian Francis brfrancis@gmail.com

Players will be limited to 24 due to store space and a $10 fee will be charged which can be paid at the front counter the day of the event.

Here are the rules we'll be following:

Allowed ships/cards:  As of now ships through the wave 10 will be allowed.  Wave 11 & C-Roc  standard ships will be legal if they're in stores by early June.  Please bring 2 printed copies of your squad & asteroids to the event.  One will go to the tournament organizer (Brian) to verify and the other is for your opponent to look at if needed as a match is played.  Plenty of squad builder websites can be found via a Google search.  We'll use Cryodex to determine pairings and opponents each round.
Match rules:  All rules set forth in the official tournament guidelines (https://images-cdn.fantasyflightgames.com/filer_public/e2/6f/e26f0c68-90ec-4633-97ea-2059dfb37a3a/swx_tournament_regulations_v32.pdf) will be followed.  Any rules questions should be directed to the tournament organizer (Brian) or one of his designated associates.

Match Rounds:  Each round will be 85 minutes with 75 minutes of gameplay and a 10 break for scoring calculations.  We will try to stick to the following schedule as closely as possible so some breaks might be shorter than others.

Registration: 10:00-10:30am

Round 1: 10:30am-11:55am

Round 2: 11:55am-1:20pm

Lunch: 1:20-1:50pm

Round 3: 1:50-3:15pm

Round 4: 3:15-4:40pm (if over 16 players cut to top 4 after this round)

Round 5: 4:40-6:05pm (first round of elimination)

Finals: 6:05pm-??? (championships)

*If there are 16 or fewer players then the 5th round & finals will be eliminated per FFG tournament rules

** Note that because the finals must be 120 minutes per FFG tournament rules it is possible that an alternate location and/or day might be required for the final game.  The tournament organizer (Brian) will work with both finalists to try to ensure as fair of a location as possible is used for the 2 finalists.

Prizes:  Prizes below will come from the championship kit as outlined by FFG

  • 1st Place – A first round bye at a regional championship
  • Top 2 - One Cavern Angels Zealot alternate art card
  • Top 4 – One Director Krenic alternate art card
  • Top 8 – One acrylic range ruler set for 1, 2, & 3 ranges
  • Top 24 – One Juke alternate art card
  • Gift cards!  (final dollar amounts pending number of players in attendance)

Parking: The city of Oakland does enforce meters on Saturdays if you choose to drive.  Its recommended to use a pay lot to avoid meter issues or take BART.  Nobody wants to sit and wait while you run to feed the meter.

No jerks, and may the force be with you.
