Legend of the Five Rings - Breakout Festival

Breakout Con presents a special tournament for Legend of the Five Rings.

Legend of the Five Rings will not have a National Championship in 2018, but Breakout still wants to celebrate Fantasy Flight's newest Living Card Game with a Premier Tier event. Honourable bushi and courtiers are invited to join the Canadian Legend of the Five Rings community in a 2-day competition to determine the strongest clan in Canada.

UPDATE: Please note that the structure of the event has been updated to six (6) rounds of Swiss on Friday followed by a Top 8 elimination round on Saturday. All top of clan players, even those that did not place in the top 8 of Swiss, will have an opportunity to play on Day 2 for a chance at the title.


  • Day 1, March 16th - Check-In: 9:45 AM to 10:15 AM
  • Day 2, March 17th - Check-In: 10:15 AM to 10:45 AM
