Another year of fantastic Wargaming tournaments around the country is about to culminate with the end of year event of events. The second annual 'NZ Wargaming Invitationals' will be the pinnacle Tournament for those wargamers looking to finish off on a high after competing around the country. Headlining NZ Invitationals will be 'The 9th Age: Fantasy Battle' & 'Warhammer 40K', come November. Wargamers invited will compete to secure their own piece of history with Plaques of distinction and their name engraved on the Perpetual Trophy to celebrate the success as the Champion of that system.

NZ Invitationals are hosted annually mid-November to avoid the busy Xmas season.

NZ Wargaming Invitationals. November - Auckland.

The 9th Age: Fantasy Battle

9th Age has proven itself at the biggest major European Tournament (ETC) to be the dominant Fantasy Battle system in the world. With the current edition already gaining 360,000+ downloads it can only build from strength to strength. With those kind of numbers following the game globally, it was inevitable that NZ moved to adopt the popular games system. I can personally attest to the games fantastic balanced clarity and replay-ability.
This year in New Zealand, there have been notable Conventions around the country hosting 9th Age events. The tournament results have been collated and the Top 12 competitors along with 2 Wildcards will be invited to compete at Invitationals.

Warhammer 40K

The new popular edition of WH40K has gained a massive audience here and around the world again. This year with overwhelming response from the community, Invitationals will be competed for with a capped field of 20. Tournament competitors placing in the top 10 in each NZ based tournament will be invited first with wildcards to fill the remaining places if needed. 

If you are unable to make it to Invitationals this year, we will have a Twitch TV channel prepared dedicated to the event. Support your wargaming community and have a look in. More equipment is along the way for future tournaments and we are planning multiple channels in future events.
