Tournament Structure & the Hyperspace Game Mode

All squads must adhere to the Hyperspace game mode’s squad-building guidelines, communicated in the X-Wing Squad Builder.

This is a Formal tier event, a friendly competitive environment where players are expected to possess at least a minimal amount of experience. Players should be familiar with the game rules, be prepared to exercise that knowledge at a reasonable pace, and avoid making sloppy mistakes.

Find out more about the tournament expectations in the Tournament Regulations.

Players are responsible for bringing everything they need to play. The T.O. will not provide any extra materials. Full tournament squad-building rules and current squad lists (required) will be posted here closer to the day of the event.

Squad Lists

Squad lists must be submitted in person between 9:00AM and 9:50AM on the day of the event, and must include player name, ships in their squad, all associated upgrade cards, total squad points, damage deck, and obstacles. Blank squad lists will be available to all players who need them.

If a player uses a ship card with the same name as a different ship card available to that faction, that player must uniquely identify the ship card by providing its ship type and subtitle in parentheses (e.g. “Ezra Bridger (TIE/ln Fighter, Spectre 6)”).

If a player uses an upgrade card with the same name as a different upgrade card available to that faction, that player must uniquely identify that card, such as by including the upgrade slot in parenthesis (e.g. “R2-D2 (Astromech)”)

Tournament Prizes

The winner of this event will earn an invitation to the 2019 X-Wing World Championship!

  • Participation—Alt Art Cards: Grand Inquisitor & Jessika Pava

Additional Tournament Details

This Hyperspace Trial will allow you to meet and compete with other players from near and far—with an invite to the World Championship on the line! These premier events feature a high level of competition, and all players, judges, and tournament organizers involved are held to the highest standards of conduct.

  • Playmats will be provided. The provided mat may be overlaid by an official FFG mat provided by a player, but only if both players agree to do so.
  • You may use a hand-held, pocket-sized laser for determining firing arcs/line of sight only. No other types of lasers are allowed, and you may not use a laser to determine movement.
  • You may use FFG X-Wing dice or the official FFG dice app. When using the dice app, the device with the app must be displayed in full view of both players at all times, and the opponent may request to share the app.
  • Rounds will begin 5 minutes after pairings are posted.
  • We are using a 5+5 tardy rule: If you have no opponent at 5 minutes past the start of the round, call a judge. We’ll search for your opponent, and if they can’t be found by 10 minutes past the start of the round, your opponent forfeits and you win.
  • The judges will perform random squad list, movement template, and damage deck checks throughout the tournament. If you suspect your opponent has tampered with their ruler, templates, or damage deck, call a judge.

About WreckAge
Two hundred years ago, the worlds’ rich and powerful left the planet in a mass Exodus. However, this grand plan didn’t include everyone, and society collapsed in the vacuum.

Now, for the first time in centuries, those left behind take their first baby steps from the culling of previous generations. There’s finally hope, finally something to fight for. Crops are starting to grow and populations are booming. In this burgeoning wasteland, various factions vie for power and resources. There are vast troves of wealth out in The Wilds for those willing to take the risks to obtain them.
