Las Vegas Vault Tour Results

Published On: October 16, 2023

They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but they must not play KeyForge. We’re happy to share the secrets of the latest vault, discovered by 74 curious Archons in three action-packed days of gaming and competition. There were no sure gambles, and many risked it all for a chance at cash and prizes in the City of Lights.

At the conclusion of the event, two new champions were crowned and each awarded the top prize of $3,000—one for the Archon tournament and one for the Alliance tournament. The two runners-up in each tournament received a $1,000 prize and the third and fourth-place finishers in both tournaments walked away with $500 each. The top two finishers in each tournament who didn’t already have invitations to the 2023 KeyForge World Championship received invitations in addition to the cash prizes.

Second Æmber

On Saturday, 41 players participated in the Second Æmber tournament after they were eliminated from a main event. A total of 48 Second Æmber games were played, earning a wide range of participants chances to win various prizes including sealed KeyForge decks, metal key tokens, card sleeves, or playmats. Dallas’s most dedicated Second Æmber player was Chase, who played in seven matches throughout the day.

But that’s not all! Throughout the weekend Archons were challenging the Keyraken, launching groups for Sealed fun, playing casual side games, and even challenging for one of the Tabletop Royal title belts floating around the community (a different one than the one in Dallas)!

Don’t Cross the Streams!

We would like to thank Tabletop Royal and 1 Star Peeps 5 Star Games. These streamers participated in various events across the weekend, and also streamed the Alliance and Archon events respectively.

You can check out the TTR Twitch at this link, and the 1SP5SG Twitch at this link. We have also embedded a YouTube video of the Alliance tournament for your viewing pleasure. Consider dropping both creators likes and subscribes on both platforms. They deserve it.

Thanks for the help, you wonderful streaming folks!
