Organized Play – Monthly Announcement

Hi Everyone, I hope you are all having a ton of fun with the recent release of Holy Heist. If you haven’t heard yet, The Spoils has been nominated in the category of “Best Collectible Card Game” with the Origins Game Fair for 2015. We are really excited about this nomination and you should be too. Tell everyone you know about it, tell your friends, your not-friends, your retailers … everyone! Origins For those who do not know, Origins is a huge gaming convention held in Columbus Ohio each year. This year, the convention will be held from June 3rd to June 7th and Arcane Tinmen will be there representing The Spoils. We will have copies of our Basic Box of Awesomeness available in the Origins Game library and be running demos and events all throughout the convention. We are also hosting two National events at Origins, the U.S. National Constructed Championship and U.S. National Limited Championship. The event lists and prizes for all Origins events will be posted later this week so be on the lookout. We want to see everyone at Origins. Whether by carpool, plane, bus, train, boat, hitchhike, whatever you have to do, just get there! GenCon Gencon, is the best attended gaming convention in the United States. The tagline for GenCon is “The best four days in gaming!” and you should be there to experience it. We will be hosting The Spoils World Championship tournament at GenCon again this year.

Important Changes to 1337 Rewards Program Structure Points earned for standard SLG events have been modified. Award Levels have been modified Bonus points for participation have been modified We are now requiring a specific naming format for uploaded tournaments in order to count for 1337 rewards (this is detailed later in the announcement) No further exceptions will be given to our brick and mortar only rule Ambassador rewards are under construction. We will be releasing an update for the changes to the Ambassador rewards soon. Stores may only run a total of 3 standard SLG constructed events per month that will count towards 1337 points accumulation. Any standard SLG constructed events above 3 that are uploaded for the month will not count for points. In addition to the 3 allowed Constructed events per month, stores may run up to 5 standard Draft or Sealed SLG events each month. Please keep in mind that we will be monitoring sales data to insure the validity of the SLG events that are ran. If sales data do not support the number and types of events being uploaded, further changes will be implemented to the 1337 Rewards Program. Please bare in mind that ALL SLG events are intended to be supported with prize packs from entry fees or at the cost to the retailer/Tournament Organizer for free events. Additional bonus points will be more readily available through our special events such as Releases/Pre-Releases, Seasonal Championships, and Convention Tournaments When? Where?

I look forward to creating regular Organized Play (OP) events to help you build up and maintain your local The SpoilsTM  player base. We want players playing prize supported tournaments in your store. Just so you are aware, distribution of OP promos has changed.

Please describe the issue you have in the body of the email and we will look into it. Awarding Promos: Foil promos should be given to 1st place only unless your store has an average monthly attendance of 17+ players. If you average 17+ players in your events, Foil promos are given 1st and 2nd  place. Non-foil promos can be handed out at the discretion of the retailer or Tournament Organizer.
