"The Force is strong with this one."
     –Darth Vader, Star Wars: A New Hope

Are you strong with the Force? Prove it. Join us for the 2018 May World Championships on May 2nd – 6th!

The 2018 May World Championships are the pinnacle of Organized Play for five of the Star Wars galaxy's greatest tabletop games—Star Wars™: Armada, Star Wars™: Destiny, Star Wars™: Imperial Assault, Star Wars™: The Card Game, and X-Wing.

For five days, the top competitors for each of these games will gather at the Fantasy Flight Games Center in Roseville, MN. They will come from across the globe to represent their local communities against the world's best players. They will roll dice, move ships, and play cards. And they will battle for the fate of the galaxy.

But it's not just the fate of the galaxy that's at stake. The World Championships will feature a wide range of exclusive prizes, including The Greatest Prize in Gaming, the World Champion's opportunity to inspire the design of a future card for his or her game.

Do you think you have what it takes to claim the title of World Champion? Players with reserved seats can claim those seats now, and other players can now apply for the remaining seats!

The Schedule

The 2018 May World Championships are five days of thrilling competition. But they're more than just competition. They are an energetic, five-day celebration of the Star Wars galaxy.

Throughout the World Championships—and in a host of side events—we will see ace starfighter pilots engaged in fantastic, high-speed dogfights. The galaxy's most iconic heroes and villains will leap into heated lightsaber duels. Cunning fleet admirals will spring traps that they lay far in advance. And Rebel strike teams will race across contested battlefields—only to find themselves confronted by Darth Vader, the Dark Lord of the Sith.

There's a whole galaxy of action and drama to explore, and the five days from May 2nd – 6th are jammed full of top-level competitions and thrilling side events. We have at least one free side event planned for all of our games, and to accommodate the tremendous demand for more X-Wing and Star Wars: Destiny events, we have taken advantage of our auxiliary space at the Radisson to offer a slate of On Demand Hangar Bays and Destiny pods.
