DC HeroClix: World’s Finest

Happy New Year HeroClix Fans!  As we start off 2016, we are excited about the upcoming release of the DC HeroClix: World’s Finest set this February with a special pre-release taking place at select stores later this month– check out the WizKids Event System (www.wizkidseventsystem.com) to find a store near you!

To kick off previews of this set, what would be more appropriate than showcasing the headliners of the set— Batman and Superman— together known as the World’s Finest heroes!

DC HeroClix: World's Finest

World’s Finest (WF#060; Rarity: Super-Rare) features a beautiful sculpt of Batman and Superman together— teamed up to fight side-by-side— and can be played at 75, 200 or 300 points— with 3, 7 or 10 clicks of life respectively.  Looking at their combat & team abilities, we can see that they feature the Wing speed symbol, Duo attack symbol, Indomitable, a 7 range and both the Batman Ally and Superman Ally team abilities.  At all three point costs, this figure has the trait World’s Finest Team that grants them immunity to their powers/abilities being countered or their combat values decreased.  When playing them at either their 200 or 300 point starting lines, they have the trait Good Distraction, Bruce which allows them to make a second attack in a turn if they miss with an attack (so long as they haven’t used the Duo ability in that turn)— because Batman didn’t really miss… it was just a feint to set up Superman.  When played at 300 points, World’s Finest has an additional trait Bruce Will Win At Any Cost that allows them use of the Colossal Stamina ability, but they must take 2 damage instead of 1—a big sacrifice but one that could potentially turn the tide of a game.

Looking at their dial, when played at 300 points, World’s Finest starts off with a combination of Hypersonic Speed, Super Strength and Invincible with an impressive 5 natural damage.  When played at 200 points, World’s Finest starts with a combination of Running Shot and Impervious and picks up both Outwit and Hypersonic Speed later in the dial.  When played at 75 points, World’s Finest starts with a combination of Charge, Super Strength, Close Combat Expert and a Defense Special Power Bruce Tells Me When to Dodge and When to Take the Hit which grants them Combat Reflexes and Toughness.

Stay tuned HeroClix fans as we roll out more previews from the DC HeroClix: Word’s Finest set in the next few weeks before release day!

Congratulations to the 2014 HeroClix World Champions and An Exciting 2015 World Championship Announcement!

 

Greetings HeroClix Fans!

Last week players from all over the world gathered for the HeroClix World Championship at Gen Con Indy.  Some players qualified internationally via Road to Worlds events hosted all over the globe, while others seized the opportunity to participate in last-minute qualifiers hosted at Gen Con itself.  When the dust finally settled on Saturday, one player arose to claim the title of World Champion:  please join us in congratulating Patrick Yapjoco on becoming the 2014 HeroClix World Champion!

2014_hcwc_patrick

That’s not all! For the first time ever, WizKids hosted a HeroClix Team-Up World Championship event.   Teams of three players gathered and competed on Thursday and Friday of the show to earn a spot in the Team-Up World Championship final event on Saturday.  When the last dice were rolled, one Team stood victorious.  Please join us in congratulating the first-ever HeroClix World Championship Team: Kevin Afrooz, Patrick Yapjoco, and Justino Jimenez, also known as “Team Majestix Apex Predators!”

2014_hcwc_team

The HeroClix Road to Worlds in 2014 was an exciting event series with officially sanctioned international events feeding the World Championship Final event at Gen Con for the very first time, and the Road to Worlds 2015 promises to be just as exhilarating with even more events leading up to the 2015 HeroClix World Championship!

road-to-worlds-logo-2015

And speaking of the 2015 HeroClix World Championship, we have even more news to share as well.   Next year, WizKids Games will be moving all of its World Championship events to Origins Game Fair.  This will mean that Origins Game Fair will play host to the 2015 World Championship events for HeroClixAttack Wingand Dice Masters.

This move doesn’t mean WizKids won’t be at Gen Con Indy 2015, far from it in fact.  Players and fans can still expect to see us at Gen Con 2015 both on the exhibit floor and in the tournament hall.  We will still be offering fantastic demos, desirable exclusives and fun competitive events at Gen Con.  Gen Con is a fantastic show and WizKids plans on attending for many years to come.

The move to Origins will allow us to spread out and create comfortable, safe and enjoyable experience for our larger sized events. Along with the move come some changes; specifically we’ll be moving to a ticketing system (or equivalent) as a way to manage the lines at our booth and we will continue to work with show organizers where possible to manage the WizKids crowds outside our areas of jurisdiction.

We realize that these are big changes, not just in locale but also in the timing of the WizKids World Championship events, and we want everybody to have as much advance notice as possible.  There is more news to come later down the line, but in the meantime we wanted to announce this change as early as possible so the WizKids community can plan accordingly.

Mark your calendars for June 3-7, 2015 and join us in Columbus, Ohio for the all-new WizKids World Championship events at Origins Game Fair!

WIZKIDS ANNOUNCES FIRST ANNUAL WIZKIDS OPEN TOURNAMENT EVENT

WIZKIDS ANNOUNCES FIRST ANNUAL WIZKIDS OPEN TOURNAMENT EVENT
One of the year’s biggest events is coming! Prepare to unleash your impressive skills on the tabletop and win fantastic prizes!

HILLSIDE, NJ – July 24, 2014 – WizKids Games, the leader in collectible gaming, is pleased to announce the first annual Wizkids Open tournament event, to be held at participating retail locations across the U.S. this fall.

Featuring some of the hottest games of the year, including Marvel Dice Masters: Avengers vs. X-Men, HeroClix, and Star Trek Attack Wing, players will compete in head-to-head battles to earn glory, exclusive prizes and their rightful place in the 2015 National Championships.

“HeroClix has grown tremendously each year for the past 5 years.  We literally can’t get more space at the bigger conventions,” said Justin Ziran, President, WizKids Games. “Dice Masters acceptance is off the charts and Attack Wing has been a steady grower with a dedicated player base.  With each of these products we hear from fans everywhere that they wish they could get something like what we do for GenCon more often and closer to their homes.“

The WizKids Open is WizKids’ first ever officially sponsored regional gaming event. This year’s event will be hosted at seven stores, spanning from coast to coast.  Most will support regional championships for HeroClix, Dice Masters and Attack Wing as well as smaller events and the ability to buy product that was typically only available for purchase from conventions.

What is the WizKids Open (WKO)?
A great way to come together with fellow fans to play the games you love and a chance to win cool stuff not generally available.

This year’s WizKids Open event includes seven of the biggest stores from across the country.  Each location will be offering for-sale exclusive items and awarding special participation prizes to players as well as providing the opportunity to compete with the best players in their area.

When is the WizKids Open?
Each store is holding their WizKids Open on different dates and times. For more information, visit the WizKids Event System and select your nearest participating store.

Where can I find information about participating locations?
For the official list of participating stores, visit the WizKids Event system.

How do I register for an event?
Registration for WizKids Open events will take place at participating store locations. Space is limited so head over to the WizKids Event System to find out which stores are participating.

What sort of events should players expect at the WizKids Open?
During the WizKids Open, you’ll be able to play Marvel Dice Masters: Avengers vs. X-Men, Star Trek: Attack Wing, and HeroClix!

Will there be any exclusive items for sale during the WizKids Open?
Yes! Each store will have exclusive items for sale during the event. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to get your hands on some of the coolest games and collectibles around.

What can players expect?
Great gaming, great prizes and a good time!

Are there exclusive prizes?
Yes! For the official list of prizes, visit the WizKids Event system.

Are winning tournaments the only way to attain prizes?
Although WizKids reserves the most elite of prizing for the tournament winners, that doesn’t mean they don’t have something for everyone.

Is this going to be a yearly thing?
It will depend on the turn out and overall success of the 2014 Open, but that is the goal.

I run a store and would like to be a part of the WizKids Open. How do I get in on the action?
There are many worthy stores across the country that may qualify for future events of this type.  Criteria for determining future participation will include:

  • WizKids event system registration participation
  • Number of events held and level of player participation
  • Product ordering for the lines that will be held at the WizKids Open
  • Location of store, gaming space, general layout of store
  • History of running events of this type

Will any WizKids Open events be held in international markets?
If everything goes well, WizKids does expect to roll this program out internationally  once a working blueprint for the event series has been established. The first event will be vital to working out any issues, which will pave the way for international rollout. The selection criteria for any future international event will follow the same performance based criteria as noted above.

The Road to HeroClix Worlds 2014 Begins at Essen Spiel!

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.

Conventions Gen Con Indy HeroClix Worlds

On the Road: GenCon Indy 2013

Greetings WizKids Fans and Supporters!

After all of the fun and excitement of the HeroClix Nationals at Origins Game Fair, the convention season turns to Gen Con Indy on August 15-18 2013.  Players will have the chance to play in many tourneys at GenCon Indy this year between HeroClix Worlds, Battle Royales, and many, many different exciting side events.  These events at Gen Con Indy will be the first WizKids run events that will use the updated HeroClix Comprehensive Tournament Rules which includes new map rules and the update to HeroClix Ages.

HeroClix Worlds returns to Gen Con Indy but with a new format and twice the excitement.  This year will see the crowning of two HeroClix World Champions – Modern Age and Golden Age!  Do you have what it takes to win both championships?  Win the HeroClix Worlds Finals in either Modern Age or Golden Age and claim the top prize of designing a figure in addition to other prizes.  Or prove you are the best in both formats and design 2 figures!

The excitement isn’t limited to the Tournament area however! Stop by the WizKids Games booth on the show floor and try out some spectacular new games! Does the Final Frontier beckon? Then take a look at the all-new Star Trek Attack Wing, available in both standard demos and LARGE, oversized demos! Want to live large as a Rail Baron? Then try out the all-new railroad-based dice-building game, Trains and Stations! Do you want to claim the city of Gotham for your own?  Then demo the Batman: Gotham Strategy City Game.   Can’t have enough dice?  Then demo Quarriors! for all of the dice you could ever want.  Want to bring home a tentacled new friend? Then purchase the Marvel HeroCilx convention exclusive, Shuma GorathOr purchase the as-of-yet unrevealed DC HeroClix convention exclusive! It would be a sin to not take something home with you!

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

HEROCLIX BATTLE ROYALE (MARVEL or DC)

Game Play:  Four players sign up and four 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.

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 from the correct universe.  For DC, these prizes will be Bat-Mite, Gentleman Ghost, or Superman and Wonder Woman.  For Marvel, these 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.

Cost:  $12 (6 Generic tickets for each player).  This year, in addition to generic tickets, we are selling 100 tickets for Battle Royals on the even hours (10 AM, Noon, 2 PM, 4 PM, and 6 PM).  At those times, we will be placing the on-demand line on hold, calling for ticket holders and seating them.  Once the reserved ticket-holder line is complete, we will go back to running the on-demand line.  If you have a Battle Royale ticket for a particular time and you miss that particular call, have no fear as those tickets will be honored as a generic ticket for another event, whether it’s a Battle Royale at a different time or a different WizKids event.

Availability/Schedule:  Thursday-Saturday 10 AM-Midnight & Sunday 10 AM-4 PM or as long as we have product.

HEROCLIX WORLDS: MODERN AGE & GOLDEN AGE

Golden Age Game Play:  Players have 2 opportunities to qualify.  The event will have a 300 point build total and all Golden Age figures – including Lord of the Ring, Hobbit, Gears of War, Street Fighter, Halo, etc. – are permitted.  What is restricted are “Tactics”.  Tactics are defined in “Part 4” of the rule book and include:  Special Objects, Resources, Feats, Battlefield Conditions, Event Dials, Bystander Tokens, and Themed Teams.  Your team can’t make use of any of these mechanics.  Some helpful clarification for you:

Does this mean I can’t use keywords, like if my character has a special power that activates when he’s near someone with a particular keyword?  No.  Keywords are still a part of the game and can be used.  It is ONLY themed team rules that are not used.  Heck, your team can even have a group of figures with an exclusive keyword.  It just isn’t considered a “themed team”.

What about characters that have special objects or bystander tokens – can I use those? Well, you can certainly use those characters on your force.  However the “No Tactics” rule still applies.  So, for example, you can play with Falcon (from Captain America), and he even begins the game with Redwing attached, however, since the game does not allow bystander tokens, you can’t detach Redwing and play the bystander.

The Golden Age event will use the new map rules included in the updated HeroClix Comprehensive Tournament Rules (or just to clarify, the map menu is not part of the Golden Age event)

All 4 qualifiers have been carefully scheduled so as to allow you to play in all 4, should you want to try for the ultimate championship.

Game Play:  Undefeated players from these events will qualify for Saturday’s finals in the corresponding format.  There will be some pre-qualified players who will already have seats from events like the US Nationals, last year’s World Champion, etc.  After these folks are seated, we will start looking at the 2-day overall record of people in the qualifiers and seat based on rating and who is present.  We will keep going down the list until we’ve seated 32 people.  Those 32 players will play until we get ourselves a champion.

As with the qualifiers, the Saturday finals are scheduled so that you can play in both events.

Prizes:  The top half of players in each qualifier will choose from a pool of 2013 Convention Limited Edition figures that will include Bat-Mite, Gentleman Ghost, Superman and Wonder Woman, Death Mask, Obnoxio the Clown, or Old Man Logan.

World Championship Prize:  A complete set of the 2013 Convention Limited Edition figures, Shuma Gorath, DC Convention Purchase Exclusive, a Teen Titans factory set, and many more prizes and, of course, Design-a-Fig.

Cost:  $12 Event Ticket (or 6 generic tickets but seating will go to those with an event ticket first).

Availability/Schedule:  Modern Age: Thursday 11 AM, Friday 6 PM, and finals Saturday 10 AM.  Golden Age: Thursday 6 PM, Friday 11 AM, and finals Saturday 5 PM

Prizes:  The top half of players in these event will choose from a pool of 2013 Convention Limited Edition figures that will include Bat-Mite, Gentleman Ghost, Superman and Wonder Woman, Death Mask, Obnoxio the Clown, or Old Man Logan.

Availability/Schedule:

Thursday Noon:  Golden-Golden Age – Build a 200 point Golden Age force using characters only. All standard HeroClix rules apply EXCEPT: (1) A character may be given a non-free action after it has been carried and (2) Fliers are not restricted from being carried!  Play HeroClix like you used to way back in the day!

Friday Noon:  Magnificent Seven – Bring a 1,000 point force (Modern Age) with exactly 7 characters.  The characters must all share a named keyword.

Will my force get a Themed Team bonus? No. At 1,000 points, a themed team would need to have 10 characters on it.
Can I use other game elements besides characters?  No.  Game elements that cost points may only be characters.

Saturday Noon:  Build a Bigger Army – This event starts out as a 300 point Golden Age force (no tactics allowed – that means no special objects, no themed teams, no resources, no relics, etc.). After the first round you add another 100 points to your build total.  And after the second round?  Another 100 points!  And so on.  Players should be prepared for this event to go up to 7 rounds (that’s 1000 points).

If my starting force is 295 points, can I add 105 points of characters in the next round? Yes.  However, as each round begins, you may not have more than 25 points leftover.

Saturday 2:00 PM:  HeroClix Mashup – Build a 500 point Golden Age force (characters only, no ships).  The only catch is that each character must come from a different HeroClix brand.

Sunday is “Scenario Day”: All events begin at 11:00 AM

Meteor Shower – This event is a 400 point Modern Age force.  But whatever map you choose, a swarm of meteors is falling.  During the event, the judge will call out map coordinates where the meteors land!

  • If a character occupies square, they are dealt 3 unavoidable damage.
  • If a character is adjacent to that square, they are dealt 2 penetrating damage.
  • If a character is within 2 squares of that square, they are dealt 1 damage.

What happens with a multi-base character? Characters are only dealt damage once and they are dealt damage based on the square closest to the “impact” square.

Choose Your Enemy – For this event, build two 300 point Modern Age forces.  Each force can’t have any game elements that exist on the other force.  As you are seated to play, you will review your opponent’s 2 forces and choose which one they are to play in the coming battle.  Choose wisely!

Golden-Golden Age – Build a 200 point Golden Age force using characters only.  All standard HeroClix rules apply EXCEPT: (1) A character may be given a non-free action after it has been carried and (2) Fliers are not restricted from being carried!  Play HeroClix like you used to way back in the day!

Protect the Boss – Build a 300 point Modern Age force with at least 5 characters.  The character with the highest point value is “The Boss”.  Game plays as normal, with one twist.  If the Boss is KO’d, all other characters on that force are immediately KO’d as well.
