Stele Open 2016 / Moar Awesomer Than 2015!

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!

The Stele Open is the largest private event dedicated solely to FFG’s Star Wars miniatures games in the world, and the only event in the world featuring everyone’s favorite pilot, Maarek Stele! The main focus of the three-day event is a massive X-Wing Miniatures tournament that runs Saturday and Sunday. The event also features a large Armada tournament, an Imperial Assault Skirmish event, an epic format tournament called “Epic Furball” that follows a fun, fast and unique condensed epic format as well as side games, giveaways, and unique swag and prizes that you simply won’t find elsewhere.

More than all that, though, the Stele Open is a true social gaming event. Registration fees are all-inclusive and allow you to play in any events with space remaining or just hang out and enjoy good food and the company of gamers like you!

  • X-Wing Miniatures games broadcast live from the event with commentary from 3-time X-Wing Miniatures World Champion Paul Heaver.
  • Registration includes event entry, and catered food and drinks.
  • Fantastic swag and unique prizes that you’ll find nowhere else!

Please contact the hotel directly to secure your room(s)! And make sure to mention you booking for the Stele Open!
