Fantasy Flight Games recently posted the information about upcoming Launch and Organized Play Plans for KeyForge. It’s a lot to take in, and we are still awaiting details about many of the items discussed. In the meantime, here is what we are planning. Please note that some of this information is tentative, and more details will be provided as soon as we know more. But you can rest assured that we are very excited about this new game, and very dedicated to providing an excellent organized play experience.

Pre-Launch Events

FFG announced that Pre-Launch Events will be taking place on Saturday, November 10. The Middleton store will definitely be participating, and the new Sun Prairie location will as well, provided we are open by then (which at this point is about a 50-50 chance). More details will come as we learn more, and we will likely have an signup available. Stay tuned.

You may also have noticed that Saturday, November 10 is also smack dab in the middle of Gamehole Con! We are very excited to announce that we will be working in close partnership with Fantasy Flight Games and Fantasy Flight interactive (who is a GHC sponsor) to provide some form of Pre-Launch experience at Gamehole Con! The details have yet to be figured out, but rest assured you should be able to participate in plenty of KeyForge goodness while at GHC.

Launch Parties

FFG also announced three types of play at Launch Parties, starting on the official launch day, Thursday, November 15. We’re awaiting confirmation from FFG on event kits and formats. Our current plans are:

  • Thursday, November 15, 6:00pm, Middleton and Sun Prairie stores – Learn to Play and Call of the Master Vault
    Come on in, bust open your new Starter Set, and learn to play using the two beginner decks. Then open up the two unique decks in your Starter and play the full game. Open casual gaming for fun and promos (while supplies last)
    This event will take place at both Middleton and Sun Prairie locations.
  • Saturday, November 17, 12:00pm noon, Middleton store – Learn to Play
    Take an hour to learn the game or enjoy some open gaming.
  • Saturday, November 17, 1:00pm, Middleton store – Launch Party Tournament
    Take your new skills and hone them on the field of battle! We will run a four-game tournament for fun and prizes! Details TBD on how the tourney works, but it should be a great time for all.
  • Sunday, November 18, 12:00pm noon, Sun Prairie store – Learn to Play
    Take an hour to learn the game or enjoy some open gaming.
  • Sunday, November 18, 1:00pm, Sun Prairie store – Launch Party Tournament
    Take your new skills and hone them on the field of battle! We will run a four-game tournament for fun and prizes! Details TBD on how the tourney works, but it should be a great time for all.

*Sun Prairie events presume the store is open by that time, which is likely but currently not assured.

Dawn of Discovery Weekly Organized Play

The first wave of KeyForge organized play is titled Dawn of Discovery, and at the moment we’re not quite sure what all that means – there is not much detailed information but we will share it as we receive it. At the moment we are planning weekly KeyForge organized play on different evenings at each store location. Tentatively we planning Tuesdays at Middleton and Thursdays at Sun Prairie, but that may change. Formats, prizes, and procedures are all still TBD.
