Fantasy Flight Games Organised Play at JustPlay

Ritchie McAlley

We love all things Fantasy Flight Games (FFG), in particluar their fantastic organised play programs which support all levels of play from casual to competitive. With that in mind, for 2017 we want to increase our stable of FFG games to cover their other great titles!

X-Wing is a fantastic game, and the last 6 months at JustPlay have shown that with a great base of friendly players, weekly game nights, monthly organised play kits and the full range of stock available in-store, we can build a great community that welcomes everyone, and make it easy to find a game.

This will continue in 2017 when we will continue to run our popular monthly X-Wing events on the last weekend of each month, starting with a Q1/Winter kit event on January 28th!

Initial dates: Saturday January 28th, Sunday February 26th and Saturday March 25th.

We will also be adding four more games to our supported events:

  • Star Wars: Armada
  • Star Wars: Imperial Assault
  • Game of Thrones
  • Netrunner

We will be running events for both Netrunner and Game of Thrones starting in Q1, and adding both Armada and Imperial Assault in Q2. We're really looking for your involvement and turnout for these, as they have to be ordered over 3 months in advance and the turnouts at these events will dictate how many we order going forward. Let us know if you're excited for these games!

Initial dates

Game of Thrones Sunday February 12th and Netrunner Sunday January 29th

Armada Will begin with the The Corellian Conflict in the first Quarter of 2017 (more info to follow) and the first kit event from April 2017

Imperial Assault events will begin April 2017

And last but not least, we'll be supporting FFG's latest game, Star Wars Destiny (which is launching at our launch party on 20/11), with a full schedule of organised play events - starting in January and running monthly!

Initial dates Saturday January 21st, Saturday February 11th and Sunday March 12th. 

If you are interested in any of these games, or play them already and want to get involved with your community at JustPlay, why not join our Facebook groups and meet the other local players?

FFG LCGs including Netrunner and Game of Thrones can be found here


Thanks for reading and we hope you're looking forward to a great 2017 of FFG gaming!

X-Wing October Tournament Report and Top 4 Lists

Ian O'Brien

October 30th saw sixteen pilots battling it out for a cut to Top 4 and a chance to be crowned Champion in another awesome monthly X-Wing tournament at JustPlay! On the line this month were Summer Kit prizes as well as £30 store credit to the winner and £20 to second place.

Faction Breakdown:

  • Imperial 5
  • Rebel 6
  • Scum 5

After 4 rounds of action the final standings looked like this

With Tom 'Twiggy' Williams going 4-0 in the swiss part of the event, this left 4 players on 3-1 with Stephen Jones just missing the cut on Margin of Victory (one more damage to a K-Wing on 1 hull in his last game could have made that difference but time was called and he escaped!)

Top 4 Lists:

Tom Williams (Scum Aces)

Edward Holmes (Palp Defenders)

Christopher Zee (Han/Poe)

James Durr (Palp Defenders)

The Top 4 saw James vs Tom and Edward vs Chris in the semi finals, Edward convincingly dispatched Chris but on the next table a long duel was taking place between Fenn Rau and many Tie Defenders - one by one he took them all down, a feat which he would try to repeat in the final!

Edward, seeing the damage that Fenn was doing to the Defenders and already losing to Tom in the swiss intended to deal with him quickly in the final game but after Fenn Rau ended up far out of position due to a misjudged maneuver against the Imperial Shuttle, Kavil's Y-Wing went down first. Luckily for Edward the Imperial Shuttle carrying the Emperor held out a turn or two longer than expected against Fenn Rau allowing him to deal with Manaroo on his own. Once again it was Fenn vs Defenders, but this time it was not to be; Fenn took down one Defenders but then eventually lost the duel after a Critical hit reduced Fenn's pilot skill to zero making it eaier for the remaining Defender to catch him in-arc, the final shot coming right on the edge of range 3.

Congratulations to Edward Holmes!

Our final Summer Kit tournament (with additional store credit as prize support as always!) is on 26/11/16; you can grab you tickets here and don't forget to sign in on Facebook!
