Resistance_Red
Greetings Star Trek: Attack Wing Retailers & Fans!

WizKids Games is pleased to announce the launch of an all-new webpage featuring the next exciting Storyline Organized Play program for Star Trek: Attack Wing— Resistance Is Futile.  In this article, we are going to take a closer look at Resistance Is Futile to provide you with some more in-depth information about the structure of the program.

Resistance Is Futile is a 3-month storyline organized play event series which begins in October 2014 with three unique organized play kits each to support one event per month.  The Kits are as follows:

Each OP Kit includes participation prizes for up to 10 players, scenario game rules with associated map elements and an exclusive Star Trek: Attack Wing ship for the winner of the event.

As with Star Trek: Attack Wing – The Collective, this event series features exclusive Tournament Ship Bricks (SKU 71646)Resistance Is Futile Tournament Ship Bricks are 10 individually packed ships (with their corresponding cards and tokens) containing one of five different ships that are unique to this event series (each brick contains 2 copies of each of the 5 ships). The ships are packed in sealed blind boosters so players will not be able to know which ship they will be receiving.

NOTE: Stores may choose to run Resistance Is Futile organized play events without Resistance Is Futile Tournament Ship Bricks if they so choose.

For stores purchasing Resistance Is Futile Tournament Ship Bricks, the suggested format for the events are for players to pre-build a fleet of 90 points and— using the contents of their ship pack they drew from Resistance Is Futile Tournament Ship Brick— field a 30 point ship that they add to their fleet.  Each ship pack contains options for generic/named ship, captains and upgrades that can provide multiple different configurations for a 30 point ship.  It is recommended that stores charge an entry fee for Resistance Is Futile events (where local laws allow) to cover the cost of the OP Kit and Tournament Brick.

To recap:

  • Resistance Is FutileOrganized Play Kits will be packed separately from Resistance Is Futile Tournament Ship Bricks and are separate SKUs to be ordered.  Stores may opt to run Resistance Is Futile Storyline Organized Play series without purchasing Resistance Is Futile Tournament Ship Bricks if they so choose.
  • Resistance Is FutileOrganized Play kits will support up to 10 players. If a store can demonstrate that they average more than 10 players, they may speak with their sales representative at their distributor to request additional OP kits/Tournament Bricks.

Thank you all for your continued support of Star Trek: Attack Wing and we leave you with this FAQ (below) that will hopefully answer any lingering questions you may have about Resistance Is Futile Organized Play Event Series.

Best,
