Each player was competing to be named the UK champion of their favoured game, and to win a spot at the World Championships in Roseville, Minnesota this November.

With highly sought after prize support and a friendly, inclusive atmosphere, Esdevium’s demonstrations and organised play manager, Mike Budd, was humbled by the response from the FFG player community.

“The reaction we’ve had from the FFG community has been amazing,” he said. “To work on an event of this scale and to receive such a positive response from the player base has been immensely rewarding. It was the first time we have organised the Nationals, but the feedback we have received has been really encouraging and will help us make any future events even better.”
