On the Road: Origins Game Fair 2013

Published on April 17th, 2013

Greetings WizKids Fans and Supporters!

Another year, another summer season starts, and another convention season is about to begin again.  WizKids and HeroClix return to Origins Game Fair on June 13-16, 2013.  Players will have the chance to play in many tourneys at Origins this year between HeroClix Nationals, Battle Royales, a DC HeroClix: Teen Titans SuperBooster event, and many other events.  These events at Origins will be the first WizKids run events that will use the new HeroClix 2013 Rulebook and Powers and Abilities Card and the exciting changes included within them.

HeroClix Nationals returns to Origins with a new format.   Players can qualify for the HeroClix Nationals finals before Origins by playing in a WizKids 2013 National Qualifier in your store (more on this in another article today).  Once at Origins, players who didn’t qualify in their store can test their mettle against other players in a sealed event on Thursday where the top 8 players will qualify for the National Finals on Saturday.  If you don’t make it on Thursday, you have a second chance on Friday to qualify.  Can you battle it out with the other players and emerge victorious?  Win the HeroClix National Finals and claim the top prize of designing an Additional Team Ability, a badge to Gen Con, a place in the HeroClix World’s Finals on Saturday at GenCon as well as additional prizes.  Do you have what it takes to be the HeroClix National Winner?

In addition to all of these tourneys, you can now enjoy demos and purchase product in the WizKids area as well at Origins.  Do you want to claim the city of Gotham for your own? Then demo the Batman: Gotham Strategy City Game.  Want to bring home a tentacled new friend, then purchase the Marvel HeroCilx convention exclusive, Shuma Gorath! And depending on shipping times, we may also have an additional for-sale convention exclusive at Origins, the as-of-yet unrevealed DC HeroClix convention exclusive! Stay tuned for more announcements on this as we get closer to Origins!

In the coming weeks, we’ll talk about the special LE prizes for these events and also update all of you on the GenCon list of events.   Can you Battle it out and emerge the victor or will you suffer Defeat?

The full list of events for Origins is below and we look forward to seeing you there!
