We had several people that said they wanted to play in the World Wide Catan Championship Pre-qualifier, but for various reasons were forced to drop. Therefore, on March 24, we will be holding a second chance pre-qualifier at noon. The top two players will then have a playoff with the top two players from yesterday's event. The rest of the info is the same as are the prizes. Let us know if you are planning on coming!
The first 20 people to buy in will be receiving two paper boards, for Catan: USA Penn-New Jersey and Catan: Germany Bavaria, along with 2 pins, for Catan University and Mayfair Games. Top 4 players will be receiving Catan branded bottles. In addition to the travel allowance, the top player will be receiving all 5 plush resources! More information about the tournament is here.
We just added more prizes! On March 10th we will be running a Pre-Qualifier for World Wide Catan Championship. Winner will receive a free trip to Origins (in Columbus, Ohio May 30-June 3, 2012) to play in the Qualifier. Once there, they can attempt to win a trip to the Championship being held this year in Blue Bell. $15 per player to enter. Winner will be reimbursed up to $200 for travel expense. Attendance at Origins will be paid for by Mayfair Games. Pre-registration for this event is strongly encouraged. Either leave a comment here, or stop in the store to add your name. The tournament will start at noon and we expect it to end around 6PM. We would appreciate players that own the game to bring out their set in case our turn-out is greater than expected.
