The 2018 May World Championships are now just a few weeks away, and they promise five great days of gaming for everyone in attendance.

Players from around the globe will be converging on the Fantasy Flight Games Center to compete in the World Championships for five of the Star Wars galaxy's greatest games—Star Wars™: Armada, Star Wars™: The Card Game, Star Wars™: Destiny, Star Wars™: Imperial Assault, and X-Wing.

We'll witness top-tier innovation, skill, and competition. We'll find players dominating their games with surprising decks, squads, and armies. We'll watch dramatic turns of fortunes as big games are decided by desperate gambles. And we'll share the action with you—live as it unfolds—on our Twitch stream (Twitch.TV/FFGlive).
