Come out and jump into X-Wing 2.0! This is a simple, fun, friendly tournament. We'll play a couple games, get better at the new rules, and have a good time. Players new to the game overall or just to 2.0 are encouraged to come out! You'll learn a lot and meet other players. While this is a tournament, it's all casual, and one benefit of tournament play is you wind up facing players of similar ability as the standings sort out.
Please contact us with any questions.
Squads for this event may be built up to threat level 8, as follows.
At the start of the event every player simultaneously makes a bid from 1 to twice the number of players (e.g., bids a value from 1--10 if there are 5 players).
Players then divide up by their chosen factions and each group conducts draft rounds:
- In descending order by bid, each player drafts (chooses) a unique pilot from the Quick Builds published by FFG if they wish. Players may not choose a unique pilot already drafted by another player. Draft order between any players that bid the same amount is randomly determined and followed each round.
- Draft rounds repeat in that fashion until no players wish or are able (squads being capped at 8 threat) to induct any more unique pilots.
Players then select generic pilot Quick Builds to fill out their squad up to threat level 8.
The Quick Builds published by FFG in the X-Wing 2.0 Core Set, the faction PDFs on the X-Wing 2.0 website, and by any other mechanism are all eligible.
Note that players may battle against players of all factions, including their own. The draft rounds are simply conducted in parallel groups to speed up the process.
First round matches will be by random pairings across all players (regardless of faction).
Subsequent rounds will apply Swiss pairings over accumulated tournament standings.
In each match, the player that made a lower bid takes the first player marker. If both players bid the same, randomly determine which player is first (e.g., assign one player hits & crits and the other player blanks & focus and roll an attack die to determine which plays first).
All entry fees will be put toward small store credit prizes. Contingent on participation there will be prizes for tournament standings as well as perhaps more particular achievements of indisputable advanced skill such as "First to lose a ship to an asteroid."
The draft will begin at 6:30. The first round will begin at 7:30pm. Each round will be a sharp 80 minutes. Prizes will be given out and the event will conclude at 11:30pm.
