ARH Organised Play Structure for 2023

Our organised play structure caters for casual kitchen table play through to these Grand Championship events. Here is a summary of the organised play structure for in-person play in 2023:

Local Play Kits – These are great for casual or semi-competitive play. They can be used to support any format of SW Destiny (ARH, FFG or Smash). These kits can be used as prize support at your local game store, or around the kitchen table. Each kit supports up to 6 players. Apply for a kit here.

Renewed Primes – These are more premium events for running an ARH Standard format tournament. Each kit supports up to 16 players. Apply to host a Renewed Prime here.

Grand Championships – The crème de la crème of in-person ARH play. GC’s are exclusive events for countries that have a proven strong ARH standard player base. If your nation isn’t listed above, you’re willing to host, and you feel your country has the player base (can attract at least 16 players), please reach out to us to start a conversation.

If you have any questions about our Grand Championship events, or any Organised Play query contact us, or join our Discord community.
