How It Started
While planning our attendance for Gen Con 2014, there was one event that really stuck out to us–a Harry Potter TCG learn-to-play. We couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to learn a TCG built in this beloved universe. After learning and meeting other players, we wanted to actively engage and revitalize the game and a community.
What better way to do that than a World Championship? We love Gen Con and couldn’t imagine another place to hold it. At Gen Con 2015, along with a few learn-to-plays and meet-and-greets, we held and crowned HPTCG’s first champion. The turnout was spectacular. The events sold out, and we got to meet new and old players.

Gen Con 2015 Artists
Attendees were also lucky enough to have a few artists in attendance that did illustrations for the Harry Potter TCG.
After four rounds of swiss play, the top four advanced to a single-elimination bracket with Josiah vs. Emily and Dominic vs. Monica. Josiah and Dominic advanced to the finals. Josiah won 2-0 in quick fashion, not dropping a single game throughout the entire tournament. Congrats to Josiah for being the 2015 World Champion!
We are looking forward to seeing everyone again, meeting new players, and having fun at Gen Con 2016. Look for another in-depth update about two new constructed formats, cube draft information, and changes to the World Championship that includes a new PDF decklist for registration.
