With the wealth of games being released, sometimes it’s difficult for quality titles to keep their momentum. White Wizard hopes to build off its success 2015 Kickstarter title, Epic Card Game, with its recent announcement.
We are very excited to announce our new $100,000 Epic Card Game World Championship. We launched Epic Card Game last year with a half-million-dollar Kickstarter and nearly 12,000 backers. The biggest piece of feedback we have gotten from our community is that they want more players to know about this awesome game! What better way to get players excited about a new game than giving away $100,000? Epic Card Game was designed and developed by Rob Dougherty and Darwin Kastle, two Magic the Gathering Hall of Famers and Pro Tour champions who want to provide large organized play events and big prizes to grow a strong player community.
Qualifiers for the Epic World Championship will be taking place throughout the year at major gaming conventions and large game stores. Players will have a chance to compete and win one of 64 coveted entries to the Epic World Championship in November 2016, where everyone will receive a cash prize and one person will win $25,000 and the title of World Champion! All told, $100,000 in cash will be awarded at Epic Worlds. There will be plenty of fun events open to the public as well. Epic World Championship Qualifiers will start at SXSW Gaming in March, and continue with events at Origins Game Fair, Connection, GenCon, PAX Prime, Dragon Con, and more. The World Championship will be held in the Boston area (Framingham) on Nov 18-21. More details about the World Championship and qualifying events can be found at epiccardgame.com/worlds.
The tournament is bound to attract the attention of veteran players while casual players will learn about the game and some cool builds they could use themselves. If you are interested in the trading card game genre, this one might be worth checking out.
