How do I get involved with UniVersus as a retailer?
We have an organized play and retailer support program called the UGN (Universus Gaming Network). This program allows stores to run official tournaments, receive free promotional materials and gives players the opportunity to earn participation points for playing in those official events.
Stores can sign up for free for this program through our website play.mhacardgame.com The process for signing up is very straightforward, but if a stores has any issues signing up they should reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
How do I start a Universus Community?
The first thing that you should do is reach out to our LGS team at LGS@universusgames.com. We can provide learn-to-play demo support such as Demo Decks, Learn-to-play Playmats, as well as give visibility to your store through the UGN app.
UniVersus has a very active community on Discord as well that we actively encourage retailers to advertise their events in: https://discord.gg/mhaccg
This Learn to Play video is also very helpful for introducing players to the game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhbLuQbj8E4

UniVersus’s Organized Play framework is designed to be a powerful call to action for players to attend your LGS. By playing at UGN-sanctioned UniVersus events you receive Loyalty Points usable on our Loyalty Shop to earn exclusive promos – and we will ship it to you for free!

Scheduling your events in advance on UGN allows Jasco to market those events to local players and will help your community grow faster.
