August 29, 2007 (SEATTLE) — WizKids Inc. hosted the highly anticipated Halo® ActionClix® Prerelease tournament at Gen Con Indianapolis 2007. The tournament, which was held Saturday, August 18, sold out at the maximum of 256 players.
“Halo fans and Clix players alike were excited to be part of this event. People couldn’t wait to see first-hand the figures and game play,” said Mark Tuttle, WizKids® brand manager. “We were disappointed that we actually had to turn away players at the door.”
In addition to the excitement surrounding the Halo ActionClix Prerelease tournament, Gen Con attendees also demoed the game, took pictures with Master Chief™ and saw the massive Halo ActionClix Scarab at the WizKids booth.
