#1: INFINITY GAUNTLET! -- 8 Month Heroclix Extravaganza. Author: HZeraze, Posted: Sat Dec 17, 2011 4:00 pm ---- 2012 will be the 10th anniversary of Wizkids' flagship game Heroclix. In addition to a number of great products they will be putting out, they are celebrating this occasion with a series of tournament events that stretches out across multiple sets.
The Infinity Gauntlet Tournament is based on the popular Infinity Gauntlet comics from Marvel Comics. Once a month, we will be holding a single Infinity Gauntlet event, from January through July 2012. Through those events, you can earn enough points to qualify for the final event in August, with the winner taking home a giant Thanos & the Shrine of Death figure.
The January Event begins as thus... "The contest begins for the greatest prize of them all! The Infinity Gauntlet has been found and now heroes and villains from all over the galaxy have arrived to do battle for nothing less than control of all they survey! Can you be the first to obtain all six Infinity Gems and assemble the full might of the Infinity Gauntlet?"
Thursday, January 12th, at 5:30 p.m. we are holding the first event. Players will face off on a map representing the Soul World inside the soul gem for a chance to win one of three Adam Warlock figures (can also be seen in the picture above).
FORMAT: 300 point, Sealed event utilizing two boosters per player, to be purchased that night at Merlyn's. Players will have until 6:00 pm to put together a 300 pt team from their two booster packs. No trades are allowed until after the tournament and only pieces from the booster purchased will be allowed.
Participation Prizes: participants will be awarded the Infinity Gauntlet 3d object (pictured above just in front of Thanos and the Shrine of Death).
We hope to see as many of you as can make it. We expect this one to be a lot of fun.
