The first Playtime Games X-wing tournament will be featured at this event! This one time only we are straying from a few official tournament rules to encourage new players to try it out. Main rules are: First 16 entrants get a free bonus! 60 minute matches, pre-set 54 pt. squads for streamlined easy matches. 1 game of each faction in the first round. Best records move on to round 2, and the top two move on to the finals. Bring your core set to guarantee a spot. $2 entrance gets you a chance at bragging rights, a chance at the phat loot (winner and runner up get prizes!), plus the winner will become a decorated X-wing officer!

If you can come early to help set up, or if you can GM some games please let us know – it will be appreciated!

UPDATE: We will need to wrap up a bit early as we have to be out of the facility at 6pm on the nose.
