PlayFusion has talked more about the Tournament Format which will be used for those looking to play Age Of Sigmar: Champions competitively at stores and the like.

Charging Black Knight - Age Of Sigmar Champions

PlayFusion also took to Twitter recently to show off some of the alternative card designs (pretty much black & white) that you'll be seeing as part of the prize pool for your games of Age Of Sigmar: Champions. I'll show off more throughout this news piece...

But, I digress. The Tournament Format for Age Of Sigmar: Champions will be called Pitched Battle.

Soul Feast - Age Of Sigmar Champions

Pitched Battle will follow the normal rules for a game of Champions but with a few tweaks. For example, you will be able to bring 5 heroes to the tabletop BUT only (up to) twenty of them can be used per game. This works as a sideboard of heroes which can be changed between games if things aren't going well.

Transmogrifying Flamer - Age Of Sigmar Champions

Additionally, you will be able to bring a sideboard of nine cards which can be drawn from across the spectrum to help you change your tactics on the fly.

War Chant - Age Of Sigmar Champions

The normal rules apply however so you'll still have to do some good deckbuilding to make a force which can take on all-comers. You don't HAVE to show your opponent what cards you've left out either which means that there is still a level of uncertainty between games as they get drawn out across a day.

I do wish that they had done some full-bleed art cards for Age Of Sigmar: Champions to be honest. The black & white design is nice but imagine seeing cards with artwork which practically encompasses the entire cards!

What do you think of the Pitched Battle rules?
