Event Outline

FFG OP designs events and products to create a memorable experience for the intended player community. An Event Outline provides the guidance necessary to run an event that delivers that experience. Each Event Outline has a unique title for identification. Some FFG OP products have more than one Event Outline, offering Tournament Organizers the choice of which to use. An Event Outline includes:

  • Instructions for distribution of the FFG prize product
  • The tier of the event
  • The event’s tournament structure (if it uses one)
  • Requirements for roles to be fulfilled
  • Description of the utilized variant rules (if applicable)

Official

Official events are those which have an Event Outline published by FFG OP. This includes seasonal Open Play Nights, premium seasonal events, store championships, prime championships, grand championships, and more.

Unofficial

Unofficial events are those without an Event Outline. This includes events which are not utilizing an FFG OP product and events that are utilizing a non-championship FFG OP product without an Event Outline. FFG strongly recommends that Tournament Organizers of unofficial events communicate a tournament’s details to participants by utilizing the tournament tiers and structures defined in this document.
