WizKids is pleased to announce the Spring 2017 WizKids Open, a series of officially sponsored regional gaming events beginning in the U.S. on May 6th, 2017! Play amazing games, win convention exclusive prizes, and support local games stores at some of the greatest WizKids gaming events of the year.
Players will need to prepare for fearsome battle on the tabletop for the chance to be declared the Regional Champion of their favorite games. The Spring 2017 WizKids Open will consist of HeroClix and Dice Masters Regional Championships taking place in the U.S. only. Players will also be able to qualify for the 2017 U.S. National Championships at Origins Game Fair, June 14th – 18th.
The Spring 2017 Dice Masters WizKids Open will be run in a different format than previous Dice Masters Regional Championships. Instead of the Unlimited Constructed format, this season the Dice Masters Regional Championship will be a Modified Rainbow Draft. Each player will be given 12 Dice Masters Foil Packs. Players will then be divided into roughly equal groups (as close as possible to 8 players per group) to perform Rainbow Drafts as normal. After players have drafted and constructed their teams, they will play a standard Swiss event with a top 8 cut using the teams they drafted and constructed during the Rainbow Draft.
Dice Masters Players will receive Sketch Variant Cards as Participation Prizes, just for showing up. Top players will have the chance to go home with a variety of Foil Cards with the winner earning a Marvel Dice Masters: Deadpool Super Rare Set.
For HeroClix, the Spring 2017 WizKids Open will be the first time that the Marvel HeroClix: Giant-Man with Pym Particle Tank Con LE Set ($70) and the Marvel HeroClix: Spirit of Vengeance Red Hulk Con LE Figure ($15) will be available to purchase in the U.S.. Players will also be able to win the 2017 HeroClix Convention Exclusives Figures, Bystander Tokens, and a Marvel HeroClix: Deadpool & X-Force Chase and Prime Sets.
Come out and play against the best competition that WizKids has to offer or simply spend time playing in your favorite WizKids side events with friends. With events being hosted at Friendly Local Games Stores across the country, we hope to see you at the Spring 2017 WizKids Open!
