Calling all Fantasy Flight Gamers! We here at Asmodee UK are happy to announce the scheduling for your 2019 UK National Championships. These will be hosted from the 31st of May to the 2nd of June at the NEC in Birmingham, at UK Games Expo. Ticket prices range from £14 to £18. You will also need to purchase a ticket to the Expo in order to attend the tournament. Side events will be announced closer to the time but you will also have access to the entire expo hall to look at all the exciting things going on!
Due to recent changes to FFG Organised Play policy, the National Championships will be renamed as Grand Championships. As this is the first event affected by the name change, we have decided to use both names, to ease players into the new terminology. For those interested in the changes, further details are available in this article.
Prizes will be given from the official FFG Grand Championship 2019 kits, with the Top 4 from each game receiving invites/reserved seats at the next World Championships. Additionally, for each event with 50 or more players in attendance, the winner will receive a flight to the relevant World Championship to aid them in competing at the highest level. Winners will need to secure and pay for their own accommodation. We will announce specific prizes for the various games closer to the event.
The schedule will be as follows:
Star Wars: Armada – Registration 08:00–09:00. First Round 09:15
