Just because FFG won't just a Euros doesn't mean we can't! I've talked to the organisers of the expo and they've advised that our best bet is to just use some of the space in the general games hall. Given it's open till midnight, we should be fine.

LOCATION
NEC Birmingham, hall 3a

TIME
6pm onwards

DATE
Friday 2nd June 2017

PRIZES
Almost every promo in existence. Exact structure tbc. Unique playmat for the winner.

STRUCTURE
Standard FFG organised play structure given the number of people that show up (Swiss + cut)

COST
Completely free, however I recommend an optional £2 donation to help me cover the costs of the delivery of the promos Nathan sent me. You will also need a ticket to the Expo in order to enter the hall.

CARD LEGALITY
Official cards only, NOT including the champion cards. The reason is because not everyone will have been able to print off the unofficial and champion cards, as well as mot being able to guarantee that they are of an adequate quality.


See you all there :)

It just came to me that with the discussion going on over how the "Worlds" tournament that Nathan and Sam are organising should be named, a similar mentality may be perceived with this tournament. 

 

Before it becomes an argument, there's a few things I'd like to point out that differentiates this:

 

  1. This is a physical (or "offline") tournament. As such, it's very difficult to guarantee that any unofficially sold cards (that includes the champion cards) will be easily accessible by all players
  2. The venue it's taking place in is where the official European championship would have taken place in given the game was continued (and is in fact where the other Euros are occurring).
  3. Given the tendency for many FFG gamers to play multiple games, it's the most likely opportunity for the largest group of potential players to be in the same place, especially given the cancellation of The Siege of Terra
