What is a Store Championship?

Every store in good standing has the opportunity to run a single Store Championship for each game supported by Organized Play by pre-ordering a kit six months before its release. These tournaments are meant to be a highly-accessible introduction to the competitive Championship series of tournaments.

Relaxed Tournament Tier: Tournaments at this tier are welcoming to all players, regardless of experience level. The focus is on creating a fun and friendly environment. At the Relaxed tier, the leaders of the event (organizer, marshal, and/or judge) may play in the event as long as there are two or more designated leaders.

Basic Tournament Structure: The basic tournament structure is designed to be very accessible, especially for newer participants. This structure provides a tournament experience that requires a modest commitment of time and resources from organizers and players. Single elimination rounds in the Basic Structure consist of one-game matches. The Basic Structure is used for Store Championship events

  • if we have 41-44 players we will be playing a 5 round swiss event with Top 8 Cut

We will be playing 35 minute rounds, with a 10 minute break between rounds. There will be a 30 minute break for lunch after round 2.
