The FFG Event Center Grand Opening is February 20th!
Event Center | Published 19 February 2010
Come join us on February 20, 2010 starting at 4:00 PM for a celebration of gaming, as only Fantasy Flight Games can provide!
Every weeknight from 4 PM to 9 PM the Fantasy Flight Games Event Center's beautiful, more than 7,500 square foot facility is available to the public for daily open gaming. And if you don’t know how to play an FFG title, attend a scheduled demo led by a member of our knowledgeable staff! Looking for opponents? We can help with that, too. Our Flight Deck matchmaking system serves as a schedule of daily events and demos as well as a source for players seeking groups to game with.
Every week offers game nights, which feature select titles from our extensive catalog of games. On these nights, we will feature board games like Arkham Horror, Twilight Imperium, and the miniatures game Anima Tactics. Game nights occur on a regular schedule, so you know exactly when and where to find players for your favorite games.
In addition, we also offer league nights and tournaments for our successful Living Card Games, such as Warhammer: Invasion, A Game of Thrones: The Card Game and Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game. Come and challenge other players to claim gamer glory and exciting prizes!
We also offer Event Center memberships for a modest fee that will let you get even more out of the Event Center, including access to our extensive FFG demo game library, private gaming room and mezzanine reservation privileges, late night members-only gaming from 9 PM - 1 AM, and other exclusive perks. Please see our membership details for more information.
Although the Event Center will be open seven days a week for both community and members-only gaming, here are six special reasons why you should stop by this Saturday, February 20th, between 4 PM and 1 AM:
Reason #1 – Show up to receive a free 1-Month Event Center membership!
Everybody who comes out during the Grand Opening event will receive a 1-month full membership to the Event Center, absolutely free. Enjoy all the benefits of the FFG Event Center, on us, for the entire month of March!
Reason #2 – At long last, the final Mystery Box will be revealed!
After months of speculation, the third black Mystery Box that has been tempting you from the Fantasy Flight Games homepage will be revealed only to Grand Opening attendees at 6:00 PM.
Reason #3 – Be the very first to play this new release with the Designer!
After this brand new product is revealed at 6:00 PM, we will randomly draw two lucky winners who will be invited to play the game with the designer at 8:00 PM, months before anyone else.
Reason #4 – Two visitors will win an opportunity to play Horus Heresy!
Two more lucky visitors that show up to the Grand Opening event will win the unique opportunity to play the very first game of Horus Heresy, our upcoming epic board game set during the greatest battle ever known in the history of Warhammer 40,000.
Reason #5 – At 7:00 PM, twenty people will win a mystery gift bag!
On Saturday, February 20th, you will receive a ticket as you enter. At 7:00 PM, we will call out the numbers of 20 very special tickets. Those 20 lucky ticket holders will then redeem their tickets to receive....something fantastic in a bag!
Reason #6 – A chance to win a year-long Event Center membership!
We've created the Event Center to give even more people the chance to discover and enjoy this amazing hobby. In this day and age, we believe everyone should have an opportunity to find a game they love, and a welcoming community to game with. Come participate in a contest with three prizes: a 3-month Event Center membership, a 6-month Event Center membership and a full 1-year Event Center membership!
Located in Roseville, MN, the Fantasy Flight Games Event Center offers players a chance to share our love of board, card, and miniatures games. With table space for 250+ players, along with over 40 professionally created modular terrain sections for miniatures gaming, the Fantasy Flight Games Event Center is sure to become an exciting gaming destination for all who visit.
This Saturday, whether you can only stop by for a short while, or you're planning to stay until we close, be prepared for an evening of game playing, game demonstrations, surprises, contests, giveaways and much more. 

We look forward to seeing you there!

OK, now that the big secret's out and the game has been announced, we should be seeing something up on the website home page.  Maybe today?

Battles of Westeros sounds VERY tempting! I am anxious to hear more about it!

It was a nice opening. Got to demo the Middle Earth quest... it made my head spin, learning all of the rules. It was fun hampering Ron's (a great player, demo guy!) plans. Thank you FFG!

It's the Battle of Westros, the "Core Set" for a new line of BattleLore games.

sigh....I was hoping for something more original...

I am with Art on the "Gears of War" guess.  I was really hoping that Gears would have been one of the big box expansions.  Either way looking forward to more FFG goodness.

I hope someone there will let us know what the Mystery Game is at 6 pm when it's revealed (or soon thereafter!)
