Many players made great memories at these tournaments.

History and the WizKids Open

For those unfamiliar with these events it was a casual sort of competition. Many players really enjoyed this setup and not much has changed. If you enjoy any of these titles it’s a good way to step your game up just a bit.

National Chances and Prizes

Skilled competitors will earn great prizes and a chance to compete on the national level. For those wanting to go to extremely difficult tournaments this is your chance. We are also curious as to whether they will one day step up the competitive prizes in their games.
