We are very proud and excited to announce that, in collaboration with Cheap Thrills, Gaming vs. Cancer will this year be hosting the Fall 2016 Wizkids Open with events for both HeroClix and Dice Masters.
On Saturday November 12th we will be hosting a 32 player HeroClix Regional Championship. Entry is £12 per player and it will be a 300pt Modern Age format. Five rounds of Swiss will be followed by a cut to the top eight for a Single-Elimination decider. Full prizing information will be available on the event page but includes a Superior Foes of Spider-Man Chase and Prime set, a selection of 2016 Convention Exclusives (including that elusive Punisher Van!) and the top players will qualify for the 2017 HeroClix UK National Championship.
Then on Sunday November 13th we are adding a new game to our list of tournaments as we host a 24 play Dice Masters Regional Championship. Entry for this event is also £12 and it will be a Swiss tournament using the Unlimited Constructed format. Prizes include a Green Arrow and The Flash super rare set, Constantine: Antihero and Captain America: Super Soldier foil cards and much more. Like HeroClix there will also be the chance for players to qualify for the 2017 Dice Masters UK Nationals.
Tickets will go on sale at 9am Tuesday morning, any players who have previously registered for our annual Clix for Cancer tournament on Sunday the 13th can transfer their registration to the Saturday if they wish by paying the difference. We will publish details of how to do this later today.
We will also be further supporting both games with HeroClix Battle Royales and Dice Masters Rainbow Drafts as space and stock permits ALL weekend.
HeroClix Battle Royales require four players at a cost of £10 each. Each player will receive one booster of Superior Foes of Spider-Man with which to build their force. At the end of the game players will draft from the boosters as well as an additional prize pool of one 2016 Convention Exclusive and three Justice League ID cards.
Dice Masters Rainbow Drafts require four players at a cost of £10 each. There will be a sealed rainbow draft after which all players will be randomly matched with another player. The winner of each game will receive a random prize from the following: Marvel Slander foil card, DC Kryptonite: Green Death foil card, Battle for Faerun Prismatic Spray: Lesser Spell foil card.
We’re really excited to finally be able to reveal this news for you all and we hope to see you all for EVEN MORE gaming in November!
