IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR STORES!
STORES HAVE BEEN PRE-SELECTED BASED ON THEIR WIZKIDS INFO NETWORK PARTICIPATION, USAGE AND SALES HISTORY. IF YOUR STORE WAS NOT SELECTED, BE SURE THAT YOU ARE REGISTERED IN THE WIN AND SCHEDULING/REPORTING YOUR WIZKIDS EVENTS TO START BUILDING YOUR STORE’S PARTICIPATION HISTORY SO YOU CAN BE CONSIDERED FOR PARTICIPATION IN THE NEXT EXCITING WIZKIDS SPECIAL EVENT!

Welcome to Sidekick League!

 An event created just for you and a friend. Play amazing games and win rare prizes at some of the biggest WizKids gaming events of the year!

We are excited to announce Sidekick League, a new initiative to introduce players to HeroClix, Dice Masters and Star Trek: Attack Wing. The goals of Sidekick League are to:

  • Provide a specific time and environment that is friendly to novice players via a targeted in-store play experience
  • Provide tools to stores to make this a success for novice players and the existing player base
  • Activate a store’s existing players to bring friends into their hobby
  • Return veteran players to the store who are interested in a relaxed play experience

Sidekick League is going to be a casual, fun, and welcoming event series!

A MESSAGE TO PLAYERS, FROM WIZKIDS:

These games are possible because of you. Without you, there is no game, there is no community (and frankly we’d have to look for other jobs). So first, thank you! We are so glad you’ve chosen our products to spend your time and money with, we take that very seriously. And second, please help. We know most of you would already jump in to help, but take a few minutes to think about possible players you can invite to these events. Offer to volunteer to teach a new player or bring in a team for them to play. If you see people interested during a match, invite them to an upcoming Sidekick Night and bring them into the game.

Compete In Amazing Games

HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • Once a month, selected stores can host a Sidekick Night, where veteran HeroClix or Dice Masters players will bring someone who is new to the game and interested in learning, as their Sidekick. They’ll play side-by-side against another player and their Sidekick, with the veteran players providing some advice and instruction. Players will be rewarded just for showing up*! At the end of 3 months, players and their Sidekicks who have attended at least 2 Sidekick Nights will be able to win limited edition HeroClix or Dice Masters prizes. There is no recommended entry fee for Sidekick Night.
  • Stores will reward participation prize to each player the first time they show up to Sidekick Night in a Sidekick Season. On the 3rd Sidekick Night, players who have attended at least twice will be eligible for an entry into a random drawing for HeroClix or Dice Masters prizes.
  • It is encouraged that other veteran players attend with the mindset that this event is a more relaxed atmosphere. Bring that crazy team you know isn’t top tier but is fun to play.

*where local laws and regulations allow

HOW IT WORKS

Players will play cooperatively together on a 2×2 map. The veteran player will get 200 points of characters to use, and 2 actions per turn, while the Sidekick player will get 100 points of characters to use, and 1 action per turn. Veteran players should build the teams for themselves and their Sidekick. Veteran players should plan on hooking up their Sidekick with a map or two, a rulebook, and a PAC to getting things started.

Sidekicks during this program should be allowed to look at all sides of their opponent’s cards to better understand what is happening during a game.

HOW IT WORKS

 Veteran players should build teams for themselves and their Sidekick. We recommend that veteran players build easy to use teams for the new player; perhaps that means all commons or a theme team – veteran players should have good judgment about this. Veteran players will sit near their Sidekick to help them get the rules right, and from time to time will offer advice. Just like training wheels, as the Sidekick gains experience their mentor will give them extra space to play more independently.

HOW IT WORKS

Veteran players should build one ship for their Sidekick with at least one well known character that provides some interesting choices during combat. Both players will play together ideally against another similarly paired team.  Questions from the Sidekick and taking back moves should be encouraged until they get the hang of the game.
