Every day, we're seeing more and more updats about what we can expect going forward with the rest of the year as the pandemic continues to evolve. In this update, we have a look at WizKids, who have updated their timeline about organized play events, as well as an update about parts replacements during this time.
From the organized events post:
Hello WizKids Retailers and Players,
The safety and well-being of our retailers, players and their families is paramount. As such, WizKids is postponing all Organized Play (OP) events originally scheduled during the remainder of March and throughout April & May of 2020. This includes Organized Play for HeroClix, Dice Masters and Star Trek Attack Wing. For HeroClix, this cancellation notice includes:
- DC Comics HeroClix: Justice League Unlimited Pre-Releases
- DC Comics HeroClix: Justice League Unlimited Release Day OP
- HeroClix Monthly OP
Note for Retailers: WizKids Organized Play product is still not able to be resold, but can be awarded at a later date, or given away if local laws allow.
Currently, we plan to continue WizKids Organized Play starting in June for the Marvel HeroClix “In Search of Galactus” Summer Organized Play series. However, if there are any changes to this we will make a further announcement- please monitor the WizKids Information Network (WIN) at WIN.WizKids.com and our WizKids social media sites.
In the meanwhile, we hope that players will continue to enjoy our games at home in small groups and perhaps take this opportunity to share their enjoyment with their family, roommates, flatmates and friends.
