Meet FFG at PAX Prime 2014, August 29-Sept 1
|Android: Netrunner The Card Game | Published 22 July 2014|
Fantasy Flight Games is coming to PAX Prime 2014 at the end of August! FFG staff will be at PAX Prime 2014 to run demos, talk to fans, and run tournaments. Join one of our tournaments, stop by our room for board games and demos, or just come on by and say hello.
FFG Will be at PAX Prime All Four Days
FFG will be in room 212 of the Washington Convention Center, where FFG staff and volunteers will be set up to run demos of many of our most popular board and card games, including some upcoming releases. Stop by and learn how to play a game you’ve had your eye on for a while or be one of the first to learn a game not yet released! FFG staff will be present throughout each day if you just want to stop by and say hello. We will also be running tournaments in the Seattle Ballroom on the 4th floor of the Motif Seattle Hotel (formerly known as the Red Lion Hotel on Fifth Ave) on Friday and Saturday.
We will be demoing FFG classics, such as A Game of Thrones: The Board Game Second Edition, X-Wing™, Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition, and Android: Netrunner. If you already know how to play a game but want to share it with your friends, you can visit the PAX board game library and check out one of our many games there. We will also have brand new games available to demo, including The Witcher Adventure Game and Warhammer 40,000: Conquest. There may even be a surprise or two thrown in!
Speaking of surprises, PAX would not be the experience it is without pins, and FFG is joining in on the fun this year. Supplies will be extremely limited, however, so we cannot guarantee everyone who visits our room will receive one. Stop by early in the weekend to increase your chances of receiving a pin.
We will be running a 64-person X-Wing tournament Friday, August 29th, starting at 11 am, and a 128-person Android: Netrunner tournament on Saturday, August 30th, starting at 11 am. Signups for both tournaments start at 10 am the day of the tournament at PAX Tabletop Tournaments HQ, in the Emerald Ballroom on the 3rd floor of the Motif Seattle Hotel (formerly known as the Red Lion Hotel on Fifth Ave).
For PAX Prime our tournament structure will be different than usual. Each tournament will be split into eight pods: eight players per pod for X-Wing and 16 players per pod for Android: Netrunner. Pod play will last three rounds for X-Wing and four rounds for Android: Netrunner. After all rounds are finished, the winner of each pod will continue on to play in single elimination rounds for X-Wing or double elimination for Android: Netrunner.
All players will receive a participation prize. Additional prizes will be awarded to the top two players in each pod, as well as a special prize for the winner of the entire tournament.
Whether you’re interested in learning an FFG game, checking out an as-yet-unreleased game, playing in a tournament, or just talking with FFG staff, take a few moments from your PAX experience and stop on by. We’d love to see you!
Based on the classic card game designed by Richard Garfield, Android: Netrunner The Card Game is a game for two players set in the dystopian future of Android. It pits monolothic megacorps against subversive netrunners in a high-stakes struggle for the control of valuable data.
