A new trading card game and table top gaming convention/tournament is coming to Utah in October. Salt City Gladiator Games is in its first year and will be held in Farmington at the Legacy Events Center October 24 and 25, 2014. The event has the goal “To promote fair and friendly sportsmanship between hobby enthusiasts.”

The event will include tournaments in “Magic: The Gathering,” “Warhammer 40k,” and “Warmachine/Horde” with tickets starting at $20.00 for “MTG” only and $40 for complete access. $100 VIP tickets are also available. In addition to gaming tournaments there will also be a figure painting competition hosted by the Geek Garage

As the great Wil Wheaton said ""Gaming is the foundation of the best friendships I’ve ever had, and it’s the mortar that has held my group of friends together for almost 25 years... Games are important. Games matter." 

The world needs more people playing games, and Salt City Gladiator Games is here to make that happen. Event details below.
