We also advise players to come with a copy of their list to show to their opponent.

Store Championship Bye Cards
Whether or not you have a store championship bye card, please let us know as soon as possible. Normally we can hold 76 X-Wing players but we have limited the capacity to 66.

This is because every bye card adds 0.5 to the player total so if we did sell 76 tickets and people came with bye cards we would have to do an extra round than we had planned.

If we know how many bye card users are coming we can adjust the numbers appropriately to make sure we can get as many X-Wing players the chance to attend our regionals as possible.

-Top 64 – An alternate art Zuckuss promo card.
-Top 16 – A set of 5 acrylic stress tokens.
-Top 8 – 4 attack dice and 4 defence dice.
-Top 4 – Acrylic Maneuver templates.
-First Place – A trophy that commemorates your victory and a first-round bye card that is valid at an X-Wing National Championship!
