About Us

Our Story

Unrivaled is simply put, the largest tabletop game tournament in the world. Our 2017 tournament series had an official network of several hundred friendly local game stores across The United States and Canada, and our 2017 Grand Finale in Las Vegas hosted more than 1500 people who came together for the love of board games and a chance to win big cash prizes.

The Unrivaled team is a motley crew of tabletop enthusiasts and gamers who want to see bigger and better tournaments for the tabletop community. We knew we weren't alone in this endeavor when Wil Wheaton, at our 2017 finale said- "Every one of us is an ambassador tasked with bringing new players into the game and showing them how magical gaming can be." With that mission in mind, we want to significantly increase the number of players who experience the joy of gaming every year.

Here at Unrivaled, we believe community building is the cornerstone of any good tournament series. We love to watch stores and the communities they serve grow together. During the 2017 Tabletop series we reached out to local charities, meetup groups, co-ed clubs, and gaming groups in every city. We formed relationships with these groups and introduced them to all the impressive local stores they could team up with throughout the year. The result was a massive increase in charitable contributions through gaming, and stores saw a huge increase in new players as these events drove people into their stores and into their lives.

After a thrilling and successful inaugural year, Unrivaled is back for 2018! Offering new games as well as a couple favorites from last year, exclusive publisher prizes, Unrivaled exclusive merchandise, cash prizes for players and stores, weekly contests, and even more to come! Join the Unrivaled community and be a part of board game history!
