A Game of Thrones League Information

Welcome to the A Game of Thrones: The Card Game Regional Season!


This document is intended for tournament organizers (TOs) interested in applying to host an officially-sanctioned Regional Championship tournament during the 2010 season. This years season begins April 30th, 2010 and ends June 30th, 2010. An A Game of Thrones Regional Championship is a major event supported by Fantasy Flight Games. A regional championship can be held as a Melee (multiplayer) tournament OR as a Joust (headto-head) tournament OR as a combined event featuring both formats of play. If a combined event is run, the overall champion (player with the highest combined score from both the Melee and the Joust tournament) of the event is recognized as the Regional Champion from that area. The Regional Championships are an opportunity to generate excitement and enthusiasm for A Game of Thrones, to provide a competitive environment for fans of the game, and to help build your local A Game of Thrones community. In addition to the Regional Melee Championship and/or the Regional Joust Championship tournaments, Regional Championships may also feature side events like legacy tournaments, themed tournaments, and other original TO-sponsored events. The best Regional Championship weekends have the feel of an A Game of Thrones convention.
