Nerd Rage Gaming Championship Trial Qualifiers are events that other game stores can run to offer a chance to qualify for the NRG Championship.
The winner of each CTQ will receive a custom playmat and free entry to any one Championship Trial within six months of winning the CTQ. CTQs will not offer an automatic bid for the Championship Trial, but they will offer points for a possible at-large bid.
Game stores who are interested have three prize options for running CTQs: a $1000 cash prize with $30 entry, a $500 cash prize with $25 entry, or a booster pack payout with $15 entry, where boosters paid out as four packs per player of the most recent set.
