Nordic Cup II: 4th-5th of August 2007 in Finland

Post by miguel » Fri Apr 13, 2007 12:13 pm

The event will be held on Saturday and Sunday, 4th-5th of August 2007. The tournaments will be held in Turku, Finland. We are using the same venues as we did for Worlds 2005, a conference room called Turku-sali (street address Rehtoripellonkatu 4) at the University of Turku and a nearby pub for the Drinking Game.

On Saturday we will have the main event, a Constructed 2-deck General Opponent Ringbearer* tournament, and in the evening a Sealed Finnish MeTW only Drinking Game. On Sunday we will have a Constructed 1-deck Hero only Doors of Night tournament.
* wrote:At this year's Nordic Cup we will be introducing a new exciting tournament type for MeCCG called Ringbearer. It is just like a normal tournament with normal prize distribution, but it also has an extra prize. This extra prize might go to the tournament winner or it might not.
  • - At the start of the tournament, one player is randomly selected to be the Ringbearer.
    - If the Ringbearer loses a game, the winner becomes the new Ringbearer (nothing happens in case of a draw).
    - The player who is the Ringbearer after the last round, wins the extra prize.
    - If the Ringbearer drops out of the tournament, he forfeits the prize.
In this event the extra prize is a black titanium one ring with a nice silver chain, together valued at over 100 EUR!  :D

(b) 1-deck: Only 20 MPs or deck exhausted necessary to call Council; when each play deck has been exhausted once the Council starts following the current turn.

The fee to attend the event is 15 EUR. The sealed tournament will cost 10 EUR extra.

We will have product and other great stuff, come and see for yourself! ;)

It is not possible to spend the night in the gaming room. Turku has a new type of hotel though, with no actual reception desk/personnel present. If you share the room with a few people, it can be very affordable. Check out more information here. If you are looking to get in touch with others to share a room with, or would just like some help with your accommodation, please contact me about it directly.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask here, or just drop me an e-mail ( If you are planning to attend Nordic Cup, please let me know in advance.  8)

It's not you. I suppose this event is mainly aimed at people not going to Worlds this year... then again, you could fly from NY to Finland, and from there back home again. You wouldn't even need to make new decks. ;)
