WizKids is going to bring a super amount of HeroClix fun to Gen Con this year!

U.S. National Championships 

We’re excited to host the HeroClix U.S. National Championships at Gen Con in 2023! 

Gen Con Event Registration is now open, and HeroClix events will be going live this week. Follow WizKids on social media to hear when events are live.

To qualify to play in the Championship rounds (Saturday) we are offering four qualifier events – one on Thursday afternoon, two on Friday, and one on Saturday morning. Due to limited space, each qualifier is capped at 16 players. 

Date Day Event Title Duration (Hours) Time Start Time End Maximum Entry
8/3/2023 Thursday HeroClix Nationals Qualifier 4 12pm 4pm 16 $20
8/4/2023 Friday HeroClix Nationals Qualifier 4 9am 1pm 16 $20
8/4/2023 Friday HeroClix Nationals Qualifier 4 1pm 5pm 16 $20
8/5/2023 Saturday HeroClix Nationals Qualifier 4 9am 1pm 16 $20

For those of you wishing to attend and compete, please see important registration information below: 

  • The top 4 players from each qualifier event will advance to the HeroClix U.S. National Championships. We ask that attendees only register to play in a qualifier event if they are available for the times of the National Championships should they qualify. 
  • Attendees may only pre-register for one qualifier event. If a player does not qualify in that event and wishes to join a subsequent qualifier event, please check with the HeroClix registration staff 15 minutes prior to the qualifier event to see if space is available (generic tickets will be required to register at the time of the event). If a player registers for more than one qualifier event, their registration for the first event will be kept and their registrations in later events will be removed and their fee refunded. 
  • If a player qualifies, they may not register for subsequent qualifier event, even if space is available (and, if they are registered, their registration will be removed). 
  • If there are fewer than 16 players at the start time of the HeroClix U.S. National Championships, additional players will be invited to play according to their placement in their qualifier event starting with the 5th place player in each qualifier and then proceeding down the standings until all 16 spots are filled. Players who did not qualify but are close in the standings are encouraged to be at the HeroClix registration area with the required entry fee in generic tickets at the start time of the HeroClix U.S. National Championships in case spots become available. 

Battle Royales 

Battle Royales are one of the most beloved HeroClix event formats of all-time, and there will be many opportunities to participate in some this year at Gen Con. 

Register in advance for Battle Royales through the Gen Con registration system, or show up to the HeroClix area with generic tickets and see if there are spots available. 

Players participating in Battle Royales will have a chance to win Marvel HeroClix: Thorgwen or Marvel HeroClix: Venom, God of Symbiotes for the first time ever.

Traveling far and wide across the Gwen-Verse, Spider-Gwen has been everywhere… and everybody. Now she’s taken on the moniker Gwendolyn Janus and wields mighty Mjolnir with ease!

After joining the epic battle against Knull’s army of symbiotes, Venom’s role in the universe was changed forever. Fly your opponents into the sun with this superior sculpt!
