Essen Spiel '18 25th Oct - 28th Oct
« on: July 12, 2018, 01:53:18 AM »
The hotel is booked!

Mrs_Decar and I are coming to Essen :D (But we travel back on Sunday, so will miss the last day)

Who else is coming?  Would we like to organise a meetup one evening to play games?
Carcassonne Forum usually meet one afternoon too!

Which hotel did you book? I consider going, but this would be my first time there.

We booked at the place we stayed last time - NH Essen.  It's quite pricey and about 25 minute walk from the Messe, wish I'd looked a bit sooner tbh.  But at least I know where it is!  There are some cheaper places further north, but that's getting to bus ride territory

 :(

Sadly, still no Essen this year, (though we do have a nice trip planned for the fall for an in-laws wedding).

My wife is up for a trip next year! I hope to do a Carcassonne - Essen pilgrimage :)

Still a just a dream at this point! Hope all 2018 attendees have a great time!!!!!

Wanna play Carc? Can we add just one more expansion?

I will be there all 4 days, but it will be hard for me to manage some event at the evenings: our apartment is ~50km away from Essen, and my friends won't wait for me while I will be with you at our evening event. So it will be too hard for me to get back to apartment after the session. But let's see, maybe we could manage something.

From what I read, because I'm was wondering the same, they printed Speil 14-17? all at the same time, there was no word for a 18+ printing that I found. I hope so though, I still have some stuff on Cundo I can buy, and I only have the '17 tile, would be nice to have antoher one.

I'll go to the Spiel! I will represent Chile in the World Tournament :)

 I take advantage of asking, Any information about hotels? I think that Devir will not pay for my stay, so I must start now to look for one :(

Btw I hope to meet all the people from the forum that goes to Essen  :D

Welcome to CarcC Khaosk - you have 3 options to play at the championships at Essen:
1) Win yoir national championship to be invited to the world championships
2) Enter the Carcassonne tournament the day before the world championship and win - this involves playing various Carcassonne spin-offs to win a seat  (this may no longer be the case)
3) win the world championship last year, you're given a free slot to defend your title.

Good luck!


Xander12:  wonderful news!  It may ne worth asking Devir, they may have an apartment rental.  I would advise looking north of the messe essen. Maybe an hour walk from the location, i understand there are busses.
