Athena Games is delighted to announce that we are hosting a Star Wars X-Wing Store Championship.

This is the time where X-Wing players can come together and compete to get on the ladder that could take them all the way to the World Championships of X-Wing.

We will be adhering to the tournament regulations and fundamental event document. While it states that Store Championships are a 'relaxed' tier event, we expect players to have basic knowledge and familiarity with the game rules. This includes the FAQ that is regularly updated by FFG.

That being said, we encourage all players to work together to create a tournament of friendly competition.
