Retailers: host a Dust Tactics Game Night at your store
Dust Tactics | Published 01 February 2011

Since its debut at Gen Con 2010 and subsequent worldwide release, Dust Tactics, the tactical miniatures board game of gripping battlefield combat for 2-4 players, has enjoyed amazing critical and commercial success. Set in an alternate 1940s reality where alien technology fuels gigantic machines of war, Dust Tactics is based on the vibrant and immersive world created by celebrated artist Paolo Parente.

And today, the Dust Tactics experience gets even better. Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce official support for Dust Tactics organized play, including promotional materials, exciting prizes, and more!

Operation First Strike

The first Dust Tactics Game Night Kit is now available to retailers for $25 through our B2B store, and will ship out in early February. Entitled Operation First Strike, this kit includes everything you need to promote and facilitate a six week league, along with amazing prizes to award to the winners.

Each kit includes:

  • 8 patches (Allies)
  • 8 achievement booklets
  • 1 Ally pin
  • 1 Axis pin
  • 1 preview Ally figure
  • 1 preview Axis figure
  • 1 poster (19.5"x27.5") / guidebook

For more information and to sign up for a B2B account, contact your FFG sales rep or email sales@fantasyflightgames.com. Questions about the kit? Need advice in running your Game Night? Contact us at organizedplay@fantasyflightgames.com.

What can I expect if I run a Dust Tactics Game Night?

A Game Night will run for six weeks (after which we will make a new Game Night Kit available). As a Game Night Organizer you will set the ground rules for the weekly event, including the time, place and legal miniatures for the Game Nights. Guidelines for all of this are included in the kit. At the end of the six week Game Night season, the winner is determined and the prizes from the Game Night Kits are awarded.

Game Night leagues are usually set up to run for six weeks, with meetings on the same day, at the same time every week (for example, Thursdays at 7:00 PM). At each Game Night, everyone pairs up and plays three games. Help players keep track of achievements, and keep a strict record of wins and losses. If you need any help throughout the duration of the league, email organizedplay@fantasyflightgames.com.

With a quickly growing fanbase, an ambitious schedule of upcoming releases, and a solid foundation of organized play, there has never been a better time to join the battle. Order your Dust Tactics Game Night Kit from our B2B store today!

Dust Tactics is a tactical miniatures game of brutal combat for 2-4 players. Based on the popular universe created by artist Paolo Parente, Dust Tactics presents an alternate 1940s reality in which alien technology fuels gigantic machines of war, and the world's superpowers clash over rare mineral deposits that could ultimately decide the outcome of WWII.

Well since he said he doesn't have a game store perhaps that means there isn't one to ask...

Yeah, the point is to ask your FLGS to host the event. They won't purchase until people show interest.
