The Epic Card Game Championship will be happening at the Wise Wizard Games Fair. Players will have a chance to compete and win one of the coveted entries to the 2017 Epic World Championship in November, where everyone will receive a cash prize and the top finisher will win $15,000! There will be last chance qualifiers on-site on Friday and Saturday at the Wise Wizard Games Fair along with lots of fun side events.
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. All told, they will award over $50,000 at the Epic Card Game Championship.

Qualifier Tournament Formats
We will hold World Championship Qualifier Tournaments in the following two formats:
Constructed: Each player must bring a 60-card deck using cards they own, following the “Full Constructed” rules in the rulebook and at epiccardgame.com/formats/. This deck will be used for both the preliminary (swiss) rounds and the top-8 playoff rounds.
Limited: Each player must bring one set of Epic, Tyrants, and Uprising, and will build a 30 card deck from a pool of 60 randomly selected cards (following the limited “sealed” rules in the rulebook and at epiccardgame.com/formats/). These decks will be used for the swiss rounds. In the top-8 playoffs of Limited events, players will compete in head-to-head Dark Draft, drafting a new deck each round!
