Game Grid Invitational 2016 Update

GGTournamentSeries

It’s finally winter and it’s freezing today as we’ve had our first snow and Christmas is only a few weeks away. It’s time to reflect on the past year and we have had a great year here at Game Grid: we have added 3 more stores and are 6 stores strong. I can’t help but think of how fun it was last year during our first ever Game Grid Invitational and it brings us to today’s topic. In this article, we will provide the list of the 14 qualified players from our Store Qualifiers and the Open from Salt Lake Comic Con and from the Open we ran at the Invitational last year. That means that the Top 18 in Invitational points will be qualified for the event on January 7th 2017 for a total of 32 invitees who will get to play in our Invitational. The cutoff date for accumulating points will be midnight on 12/31/2016.

We want 32 players to participate that are qualified, and that may mean we pass down invites the day of the tournament to players lower on the Invitational list than the top 18.  Last year a player that was 30th on the list participated in our 2015 Invitational, so even if you think you won’t play, there’s a chance not enough qualified players show up and those invites will pass down!
