Want a WGP Regional in your area? Here's how!
May 28 2014
UPDATED 6/11: Applications closed! Looks like EVERY Applicant that made it in before the 11th is conditionally approved (assuming they follow instructions!) Stay tuned mid-next-week for locations!
Apply today! UPDATED 6/4: Still looking for more locations! Apply today! UPDATED 5/30: US/CN Visa (or citizenship) req. UPDATED 5/29: Canadian Sites, JP/EN Card clarification (JP Only) We're in the process of setting up the Regionals for this year's North American (US/Canada) WGP, and we need to determine where to hold our Regionals!
If you are interested in having one in your area, please read and follow these instructions carefully!
Send us an email at :
The Subject should be "NA WGP Regional Request - TOWNNAME, ST", where TOWNNAME should be replaced by the name of the town you live in, and ST should be the 2-letter abbreviation your state uses.
The Body of the email should follow this format:
- Your Name
- Your Email
- Your Phone Number
- Your City and State
- The Name of the Location of the Regional
- Contact information / webiste of the Regional Location
- The maximum amount of player seating available (DO NOT ESTIMATE)
- If you've held a WS regional before
- 100 words or less on why your spot should be picked. Include approximate counts on local playerbase size, events held, and so on.
People requesting the Regional will still be able to play in it - if your location is selected, we will either send someone to judge it or assist you remotely.
The site you choose for the Regional cannot charge money in any way - the Regional must occur in a free location (no conventions with badge fees, no stores that would require an entry fee). We suggest working with a local game store, or a library. You must have permission to run it in this location. The location must have stable internet access, and you must have the ability to understand and follow instructions, and access to a phone for the duration of the tournament.
If selected, we will work with you to set up a Regional in your area in September / October, with Nationals occurring in Rochester, NY, some time in October / November.
Note that we do not have answers for many questions regarding tournament structure / format / number of spots / etc yet - while we work on details, we need to get a list of interested places first, and we won't know about an interested place without your input!
Be sure to let your friends know about this as well - if you talk about WS in English, post a link to this announcement, so we can get the word out as fast as possible. All applications must be in by June 10th.
Some notes on things we are in the process of working on:
- Regionals in Canada are allowed, and any player living in America or Canada (Citizenship not required - visa holders and citizens are both allowed) is allowed to win the National Tournament - winners must be able to fly from the US to Japan and back, possibly without accompaniment (esp. in case of Canadian winners). Once in Tokyo, we should be able to provide assistance, if we cannot fly one the same plane with you to Japan
- No Regionals outside USA / Canada
- English cards are not allowed, only Japanese cards are allowed
Again, please note - you must be able to follow instructions, fairly hand out promotional items, send back extras, do paperwork, and keep a cool head if you want to be an Assistant Organizer for a Regional. You'll still be able to play in it - we expect the more prominent players in each area to apply for their area - but if you can't handle deferring to a higher authority during a tournament, or explaining both sides of a question, bad things can happen. Please make sure you are mature and fair enough to be responsible for running an event before you apply.
Even if you know your friend applied for your area, you can apply too! it'll be good for us to know we have multiple people to help out.
So, let people know about this, and if you are interested, get working on your application!
