Win a place in the National Championships at the London convention
This year’s Tabletop Gaming Live convention will host a regional qualifier for the Pandemic Survival series, giving you and a team-mate the chance to prove your disease-curing skills in the game and win a place at the UK National Championships.
The Survival Series is a competitive twist on the co-op smash hit, as up to 12 teams of two players race to cure all four diseases first – or be the only team left standing as their opponents are eliminated by epidemics and outbreaks.
To keep things completely fair, all the teams begin with the same roles, infected cities and even an identical deck of player cards, ensuring that it’s your strategy that decides whether you win or lose. Each match takes around two to three hours.
If you emerge victorious, you’ll guarantee a place at the UK National Championships. Triumph there and it’s onto the World Championships to prove you’re the finest disease-battlers the globe has to offer (on the tabletop, at least). Last year’s World Championships were held in Lucca, Italy.
Returning after a successful tournament at 2018’s show, the Pandemic Survival regional qualifier will be held during Tabletop Gaming Live on Saturday, September 28th and Sunday 29th 2019.
It won’t be the only tournament taking place in London’s Alexandra Palace during the weekend of fun and games, either. We’ll have much more to announce on that front very soon!
We’ll also have the latest releases from Pandemic publisher Z-Man Games, alongside new and upcoming games from studios such as Fantasy Flight, Blue Orange, Gamewright, Days of Wonder, Iello, Catan Studio, Cubicle 7, GCT Studios, Mythic Games, Ravensburger, Themeborne, Big Potato, Stuff by Bez and more. Games available to play at last year’s show including the then-unreleased Pandemic: Fall of Rome, KeyForge: Call of the Archons, X-Wing: Second Edition and Forbidden Sky, which celebrated its UK launch at the convention.
Sound like fun? It will be! You can get involved by picking up your tickets to Tabletop Gaming Live 2019 at theticketfactory.com. Kids aged 10 and under can attend for free.
