FAQs

1. Is Unrivaled as fake as that Nigerian prince who emails me all the time?

No! We are Unrivaled, the largest tabletop tournament of the year! Our $250k in cash and prizes, staff (hello out there!), relationships with the publishers of all six participating games, and desire to create an amazing event for gaming fans out there are ALL 100% real.

2. How much does Unrivaled cost?

Unrivaled costs you absolutely nothing! See “How do I sign-up?” for details on how you can join the tournament.

3. What’s in it for me?

Glory! Fame! Bragging rights! Want more? Okay, we’ve got you covered. See “What prizes can be won by players?”

4. Where is Unrivaled being held?

Unrivaled is broken down into three stages: Satellites, Regionals, and Finals.

  • Satellite Tournaments are held at local Unrivaled sanctioned stores.
  • Regionals will be held at 11 different locations. Click here to find a Regionals Tournament near you.
  • The Unrivaled Tournament Series Finals will be held in Las Vegas in October 2017.

What prizes can be won by players?

Good question! Let us break it down for you:

  • 1st place: $10,000
  • 2nd place: $5000
  • 3rd place: $2500
  • 4th place: $1000

Game Chic is also offering a custom table to each 1st place winner at the Unrivaled Finals. Now, wouldn’t that look pretty darn great in your living room? It gets better: More prizes will be announced soon!

How do I sign-up?

Use the Unrivaled Search Tool to find a sanctioned store near you. If your local game store is not sanctioned, you should bite, claw, and kick them until they become an official Unrivaled venue!

Can I be a Finalist in more than one game?

Yes! We understand you might be a pro at more than one game and we want to give you as many chances as possible to show everyone just how awesome you really are.

How many participants will there be?

A lot! Obviously, the number of players in each store’s Satellite Tournament will vary and more stores are signing up everyday. Each sanctioned store will send winners for each of the six games to Regionals. And the winners there will head to the Finals in Las Vegas!

When do the tournaments start?

Satellites will start at the beginning of April.

Where can I find the Unrivaled Tournament Series rules?

Here!

What happens if someone is caught cheating?

We like a lot of things at Unrivaled, but cheating isn’t one of them. Here are a few resources on how we handle that sort of thing:

  • Unrivaled Investigation Process
  • Penalty Guidelines
  • Disqualification Report Form

Will there be any travel stipends for Regionals or the Finals?

Yes, Unrivaled will be providing travel vouchers and hotel accommodations for everyone that qualifies for the Finals.

Are players from the same store going to be split up and sent to different Regionals?

No, players are placed in Regionals based on their sanctioned Store’s location.

Are there any rules against note-taking during games?

No, but for reference, please see a full list of tournament rules here.

  • Team Yankee

    April 26, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm
    Game Empire Pasadena, 1795 E Colorado Blvd, Pasadena, CA 91106, USA

    Team Yankee is a techno-thriller novel written in 1987 by Harold Coyle, then a major in the United States Army, whose subject is the actions of a company-sized armor unit of the United States Army in the World War III scenario as depicted by General Sir John Hackett in his novel, The Third World War: The Untold Story.

    Now you can take to the field commanding the US Army, or their NATO allies Britain, and West Germany. Or cross over to the Iron Curtain and command a Soviet, or East German force and press this hypothetical WW3 engagement in 15mm onto the table.
