Step Forth, Champions

Highlights from the LCG Regionals Mega Event at the FFG Event Center

This past weekend the LCG Regionals Mega Event at the Fantasy Flight Games Event Center gave Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game, Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game, and A Game of Thrones: The Card Game players a chance to test their skills against other fans of these great games. The event brought LCG players together to celebrate these titles, traveling from as far as Ohio, Missouri, and Iowa. Whether it was to participate in the tournaments, watch the competitions, or simply enjoy a few open games with friends, attendees of the event found plenty to do.

Friday night started things off with the Melee Championship for A Game of Thrones. Players came in early to build or modify their decks and prepare for the coming matches. Saturday featured the Warhammer: Invasion tournament, culminating in a nail-biting match between orc and dark elf... and the final AGoT joust saw Greg Atkinson's Lannister Deck (running the City of Shadows agenda) emerge victorious (although Lucas Reed won the melee, Greg's overall score grabbed him the championship). The Call of Cthulhu tournament came down to a hard fought, back-and-forth battle between the two finalists. Finally, many attendees spent Sunday either participating in the AGoT Highlander event or taking on FFG in various staff challenges.

Throughout the event, players also attempted to complete a series of achievements presented in their achievement booklets, creating an exciting new level of gameplay for their favorite LCG. In addition to these events, attendees also got a chance to chat with designers James Hata and Nate French about their work on these games, as well as a bit of insight on future products.

We would like to thank all attendees for sharing the weekend with us, as well as congratulate our new champions. We hope to see you next time!
