As you know, we just recently finished up our X-Wing Summer Tournament Series. Thank you for making it the huge success that it was! As soon as the next Tournament Kit is released by Fantasy Flight Games we will start our new series. Until then, we still want to provide opportunities to get some X-Wing games in at Shuffle & Cut!
Every Friday night at Shuffle & Cut Games (starting this Friday 8/15/2014) we invite you to swing by and get some X-Wing games in! We will have tables set up to allow for open X-Wing Miniatures Games from 5:00 PM until around Midnight We've also decided to try something new out: we like to call it playtesting for prizes!
What is Playtesting for Prizes?
Playtesting for prizes is similar to a tournament in that you pay an entry fee of $5 and at the end of the night you earn prizes based on how well you did. What comes in between though, is entirely up to you.
When you sign up you will receive a match slip with room for up to 4 matches. Who you play, and how many times you play them is entirely up to you! Which format and how many points you fly is also up to you and your opponent to decide before each game!
Only in to standard play? Find four people to play all standard matches, or, find one person and play four times. Because this isn't a tournament you can apply what you learn from your game to your squad right away and tweak your squad in between each match. Bring your epic squads as well. You don't have to play Epic style all four matches if you don't want!
You could even do a 1v1 escalation tournament! Just find a partner and play 60pts the first match, 90 the second, 120 the third and 150 for your final match. Playtesting for prizes is all about getting people together to try out new ideas without having all of the formality that comes with a tournament. If you play through your four matches too quickly you can always buy back in for another $5.
Each game you play, win or lose, will earn you points. When your ready to leave, cash in your points for store credit or items we have left over from previous tournament and game night kits! Everyone who shows up for X-Wing on Fridays, regardless of how they choose to playtest will also receive a raffle ticket and be entered to win random pieces left over from previous kits!
