Each calendar quarter, participating local game stores can purchase a Stronghold Kit, which includes all the materials needed to hold in-store events for the “Battle for the Stronghold,” which allows players to seize control of their local game store for their favorite clan. Stronghold Kits may be used to host Weekly Play or Monthly Play structured events, depending on what the retailer chooses.
In total, the Stronghold Kit contains 247 extended art cards, 13 acrylic fate tokens, 7 clan specific first player tokens, 7 plastic Dragon Clan-themed Imperial Favor cards, 4 custom playmats, and 1 acrylic fate dial.
At the end of the Stronghold Control events, one of the Great Clans will have established dominance, that clan will control the store as their stronghold until the 2019 Battle for the Stronghold contest.
Retailers can download posters to decorate their stores with the colors and iconography of the dominant clan (images available on the FFG website.)
