Spotlight: The Palm Springs Open

Goonhammer is proud to spotlight the Palm Springs Open event, presented by Dicehammer.  The event taking place July 22nd and 23rd in Palm Springs, California will comprise six rounds of 10th edition tournament play with over 100 players competing for the top spot! In addition to a bevy of awards and prizes, the event will offer the winner a Golden Ticket to the Warhammer 40,000 World Championship occurring later this year in Atlanta, Georgia. While the Palm Springs Open is currently sold out with an extensive waiting list of over 50 hopeful participants, we are thrilled to preview an upcoming announcement later this summer. The team at Dicehammer is working hard to make their events even better and to expand the capacity for next year! Those attending the California Team Championships with family will be happy to learn that they’ll be heading near the happiest place on Earth! 

The Palm Springs Open has endorsed the use of the Tabletop Battles app, hands-down the best app out there for tracking games of Warhammer 40,000. Support for 10th edition tournament play has been built in and there is simply no better way to ensure smooth round-by-round mission play as an organizer or manage your games as a player. Avoid the challenges of managing a card-based system at the table with the app that features:

  • Intuitive game setup and workflows that facilitate easy game management
  • Simple, clear tracking that minimizes miscommunication
  • Supports 10th edition missions with a reliable secondary randomization function
  • Supports the Leviathan Tournament Companion, including updated secondary scoring and pre-set mission/rule/deployment map combinations

If you haven’t already, go get it!
