                                                              We are pleased to announce the side events and structure for the 2018 Fantasy Flight Games National Championship, to be held in Birmingham on 24th-26th August. Following the success of last year’s event, we have decided on a structure similar to last year. Each player participating will receive a prize ticket with additional prize tickets for winning games. Alongside the ability to run four-player pods, there will also be some suitably structured events with event ticket prices at £3 per player per pod and £5 for entry to premium side events.
