CMON announced today that the CMON Expo 2018 will take place on May 11-13, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta. Why is this relevant to ASOIAF? The Kickstarter is supposed to release in April of 2018, right before the CMON Expo!
So, assuming no delays in production, expect that the first official ASOIAF tournament will be likely held be held in May 11-13. Formal competitive play is not supposed to start until June of 2018, but I don’t think CMON would pass up an opportunity to show off one of its flagship titles for 2018 without a full fledged tournament!
We will be sure to pass along any information as it becomes available.
