The Apex of Organized Play

Prepare for the Fantasy Flight Games World Championships


Over the course of the year, thousands of competitive players join in Fantasy Flight Games Organized Play, competing in hundreds of tournaments around the world. From the early proving grounds of Store Championships, through the competitive fever of Regional Championships, to the heights of your country’s National Championships, all of these tournaments are leading you closer to one thing: the Fantasy Flight Games World Championships, held November 2nd-6th, right here at the Fantasy Flight Games Center in Roseville, Minnesota. 

For each of our Organized Play games—A Game of Thrones: The Card Game, Android: Netrunner The Card Game, Imperial Assault, Star Wars™: Armada, Star Wars™: The Card Game, Warhammer 40,000: Conquest, and X-Wing—the Fantasy Flight Games World Championships is the culmination of the year. Every November, hundreds of players from dozens of countries travel to join us and display their skill. We’ve just revealed the Worlds prizes and the World Championships are almost upon us, so we’ll just share a few quick pieces of information to help you get the most out of the week, whether you’re planning on attending or spectating from home.

A Guide to the 2016 FFG World Championships

The FFG World Championships are an irresistible thrill, but they can also be confusing—hundreds of players flock to the Fantasy Flight Games Center at once, and there are usually multiple tournaments running at any given time. Fortunately, we’ve provided a means for you to always know what’s going on: the Competitor Pamphlet  (pdf, 5.9 MB). 

This pamphlet will be handed out to every competitor as they pick up their badge at the FFG World Championships, but if you won’t be attending or you’re interested in looking at it early, we’ve also made it available to you here. Within this pamphlet, you’ll find the start times and tournament details for every tournament and side event that’s being held at the World Championships, ensuring that you’re always exactly where you need to be. You’ll also find a convenient map of nearby locations, allowing you to plan your meals and entertainment while you’re not competing!

If you won’t be joining us in Roseville this November, you may be more interested in the streaming schedule included in this pamphlet. Just like last year, we will be streaming each of our Organized Play games at some point over the weekend, complete with live commentary and discussion. You may even catch a few special discussions slotted in among the tournament games! You’ll want to follow our schedule and check out our livestream on Twitch, whether you’re watching from home or attending a streaming party at your local retailer. 

You can also find plenty of information and updates about the World Championships via social media. You can follow @FFGames on Twitter for updates and news throughout the weekend, and @FFGOP for weekend-long live coverage of the event. Whether you’re watching at home or attending the event, remember to use #FFGWorlds in your tweets about the event!

Claim the Prize

By the time the dust has settled on November 6th, we’ll have seven new World Champions holding their prestigious titles until their game’s 2017 World Championships. Whether you’re joining us here or watching from home, we can’t wait to share the excitement of the FFG World Championships with you!
