The Road to HeroClix Worlds 2014 Begins at Essen Spiel!

Published on August 28th, 2013

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Last week we announced that WizKids Games would be hosting the 2013 HeroClix European Championships to celebrate the triumphant return of HeroClix to Essen Spiel in October, and we promised more information to come.  Today we are pleased to share our planned schedule of HeroClix events at Essen Spiel! Without further ado, here we go:

 

HEROCLIX BOOSTER DRAFT

Game Play:  Players will sign up and will then be randomized into smaller pods of four.  Once the pod of four is seated, four HeroClix boosters go into the pool.  Each player opens a booster, drafts a character for their force, and passes the rest of the booster to the next player.  Once all figures have been drafted, game play begins.  While the rules have every player for themselves, watch out for alliances and choose any partners carefully.  After an hour of play, time is called.  The winner is the player with the most points.

Participation Prizes: HeroClix Print and Play cards

Competitive Prizes:  Once the match is over, all characters are returned to the center and the judge will add a 2013 Convention Limited Edition figure to the pool.  DC HeroClix prizes will be Bat-Mite, Gentleman Ghost, or Superman and Wonder WomanMarvel HeroClix prizes will be Death Mask, Obnoxio the Clown, or Old Man Logan.  A snake-draft is then used to distribute the figures:  the winner drafts a figure from the pool (this time, to keep), followed by whoever placed second, then third, and then fourth.  As a snake draft, the next draft round starts with the fourth player, then third, then second, and then first.  And so it goes until all figures are in someone’s possession.

Availability/Schedule:  Thursday-Saturday 10:30 AM-5:30PM, or while supplies last.
