Clix For Cancer started in 2013 as a small, local tournament held in a friendly coffee shop on the Isle Of Wight. 10 players took part and raised a respectable total of £150. Talk quickly turned to how we could look at growing the event and through some fantastic connections a year later we found ourselves hosting the event at Fratton Park in Portsmouth.
The 2014 event saw a MASSIVE prize pool donated by players, stores, and Esdevium Games. We had a total of 27 players take part in a day that also included a battle royale side event on a mind blowing 3D map created by Chris Dunn of Blue Rat Games. The total raised was just over £1,000 and the event succeeded in bringing together players from all over the country to raise money for an amazing cause.
2015 saw us undergo a name change and an increase in size to allow us to support other gaming tournaments. A move to Southampton University gave us the space to make this year the first to include Magic The Gathering and Android: Netrunner and saw 95 gamers event raising £2,360.
2016 represents further growth as the event is now growing to take place over two days on November 12th and 13th with another new game joining our events in the X-Wing Miniatures game.
