Formerly known as National Championships, Grand Championships are high-level Organized Play tournaments that take place only once a year per nation or territory.

As the tier above Prime Championships, these events offer increased prizes, as well as invitations to the KeyForge World Championship for the Top 4 players (and if there are enough participating players, free travel to the World Championship for the winner).

At a Grand Championship, players are awarded 20 Æmbershards for participation, along with 10 Æmbershards per win and an additional 150 for the winner. The winner also gets a unique "Grand Champion" KeyForge deck (with a different card back and "Grand Champion" in the name, but otherwise a regular procedurally generated KeyForge deck).

Grand Championships can be run in one of the following formats: Archon Triad, Archon Survival, Sealed Adaptive, Sealed Triad.
