Do you have what it takes to be a Star City Games® Invitational Champion?
Twice a year, qualified players compete for $100,000 in prizes, a bye and free entry into every Star City Games Open, free entry into one Star City Games Classic per weekend for the following season of the SCG Tour®, their likeness immortalized on an exclusive token, and an invitation to compete in the year-end Star City Games Players' Championship!
Each Star City Games Invitational is held at an SCG CON weekend which also includes several special events, tons of side events, vendors and special guests, so even players without an Invitational qualification can join in the fun.
