The WBC tournament event has a final schedule posted.

https://www.boardgamers.org/wbc18/previews/mgw.html

Whether you are a newcomer or a veteran looking to re-live your nostalgic Core Only days stop by and join us in the Arena!

I will be there for the full 9 days of the convention and open gaming runs 24x7 for anyone interested in casual play of Arena with or without Battlegrounds.

Hope to meet some new Mage Wars players at the WBC convention in Seven Springs Resort, PA starting this weekend through July 29.

We have about 20 regular players attend the tournament event each year and about 50-60 participants attending the demo sessions. This year will have additional demo events that feature the Advanced rules taught on separate days.

I hope to get in some multiplayer Domination play as well with the Siren. I think her style of play might do well in the Domination format.

As I said last year: From one "big con" event runner to another, good luck to you sir! May your event be successful and your battles truly epic.

Thanks guys!

This is year 4 for the event and we have not had the same person repeat as a winner yet. We will see if this is the first year for a repeat winner.

Chris Byrd repeated as WBC Champion with his Beastmaster. Congratulations Chris! He is now 8-1 over two years of play.

The tournament report for 2018 is posted here https://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/2053313/wbc-2018-mage-wars-arena-tournament-report.

We had a drop in attendance this year so we are eliminating the Apprentice mode and Core Set only format and will be using all Arena expansions next year.
