Bring your best Keyforge skills and your favourite deck, and battle it out in our Keyforge Prime Championship!
This event will take place at St Paul's Church in Cheltenham. This is a competitive event, and all players will be expected to be familiar with the game rules and FAQ/Errata. Registration opens from 9am, with the event beginning at 10am. Advance tickets are £15, going up to £20 from 1st March.
This event will use the FFG Advanced Structure at Formal Tier. We expect to run 6 rounds of Swiss pairing with a top 8 cut.
Prizes for this event will come from the official Prime Championship kit, which can be viewed on the Fantasy Flight website. Additional prizes will be added depending on the number of players - keep an eye on our Facebook event for further details!
Wait - isn't this one week after the Grand Championship?
Yes it is. We booked our venue for this event in early September, a handful of days before the first mention of possible dates for the Grand Championship. We looked very hard at whether we should move our event date when the GC was confirmed, and for a number of reasons - in particular, weather concerns based on experience from previous years in this area - we ultimately decided to stick with our original plan for the 7th March.
This event will run single game rounds (35 minutes each) during Swiss, and best-of-three single elimination rounds (90 minutes each) for the top cut.
9am - 9:45am: Registration
10:15am - 12:30pm: Rounds 1-3
12:30pm - 1:30pm: Lunch break
1:30pm - 3:45pm: Rounds 4-6
3:45pm - 4:15pm: Swiss round prizing awards, afternoon break
4:15pm - 9pm: Top 8 Cut
