This time next Monday, the 4th of June, Las Vegas Open 2019 general registration will open at 10:00am PST. Read on to see some of what you can expect this year!
The Las Vegas Open, of LVO, is our flagship event and home to some of the largest tabletop gaming events in the world. However, it’s about more than just competing with some of the best players and hobbyists of these games. It’s about celebrating the hobby we all love with like minded individuals for 3 amazing days in one of the most exciting cities in the world: Las Vegas!
Gamers from around the world come to have fun, learn, compete and play games. We have something for everyone, with informative seminars, hobby classes taught by some of the best artists of our generation, massive gaming tournaments, narrative events, casual gaming, miniatures games, role playing games, social events and so much more.
We’ve got awesome hobby classes taught be some of the industry’s best, including Angel Giraldez of Infinity fame, Chris Peach from Games Workshop, CK Studios and many more!
We also host the Las Vegas Open Painting Championships which draws some incredible talent from around the world to compete for cash, prizes and bragging rights! Start painting your entry and see how you do. Take a look at some of the beautiful entries from 2018.
You can also join us for informative and fun seminars with speakers from Games Workshop who discuss upcoming releases, answer questions and show off new models! You can also sit in with media personalities such as MiniWargaming, Tabletop Minions, Wargamer Girl, The Independent Characters and many more to learn how they do what do, ask them questions, and get to know the people behind the content you enjoy.
And of course, we’ve got gaming events! There are more to choose from than we can cover in just one post but, let’s take a look at some highlights! The 40k Narrative is one of our most popular, with a limit of 100 players and typically selling out in hours. A look at this pictures explains why: 3 days of narrative driven play on themed tables of beautiful terrain with gorgeous armies! If this is an event you want to attend, grab those tickets early.
We’ve also got tons of other 40k events going on, too, including our crown jewel 40k Championships event, which is the largest 40k singles event in the world! But that’s not all, we also have a very large 40k Casual event, 40k RTT heats and doubles events, too! These pictures don’t actually do the event justice, it’s just hard to take pictures of that many people gaming in a single event! We work hard all year long to make sure every table looks great, too, with tons of terrain to make your games exciting and fun.
Plus, if you do well enough in the event, or are just lucky, you may get to play on the live-stream in front of thousands of other gamers on Twitch!
The LVO is also the home of amazing prize support and the grand finale for the ITC season, too!
Likewise, we’ve also got a fantastic Age of Sigmar lineup, too! The event features some awesome players with lovely armies on seriously beautiful tables, too. Check out the picture below!
We also hand out boatloads of prizes, including crowning the season’s ITC Champion.
You can also get your Shadespire on in a Grand Clash event as well as Blood Bowl!
Or perhaps some 30k?
And if GW games aren’t your bag, there are SO many more to choose from! This year we’ll have X-Wing, Star Wars Legion, Flames of War & Team Yankee, Bolt Action, Warmachine and Hordes, Malifaux, Infinity, Pathfinder, demo games and so many more! Each of these events has continued to grow considerably over the years and we can’t wait to see the turnout for the LVO 2019!
And special mention has to be made of the Warmachine and Hordes top tables as they are STUNNING. Some of the most amazing tables you will ever have the opportunity to game on. Here’s just a sample!
There’s also loads of vendors to shop from, too! The LVO presents a great opportunity to browse items you may have only ever seen online, and in some cases to talk to the creators as well.
But it’s not all about gaming as we said, it’s also about having fun in Vegas and making friends! We have loads of organized social events to make this an experience you won’t forget. We have daytime social events for non-gaming spouses to go on during the day while their other half gets their game on:
And nighttime social events to enjoy Vegas with friends!
You also get the chance to meet new and interesting people such as the Pink Goat:
Or travelers from exotic places such as Canada! This Canadian is pictured in traditional dress and hairstyle. What a treat!
There’s so much more to say but we’re running out of space! Suffice it to say that the Las Vegas Open 2019 will be three of the best days of gaming you’ll have all year, and we can’t wait to see you there! When tickets go up for sale, we highly recommend grabbing them sooner than later as the event continues to fill up faster and faster each year. All tickets are fully refundable up until 30 days before the event, so you can buy early with confidence and if something pops up, you can adjust your plans without a fuss.
See you all in Vegas!
