Essen Spiel 2022 meetup
« on: July 06, 2022, 01:59:31 AM »
Some folks from CarcC are attending Essen Spiel later this year. It runs from October 5-9th.

I'll be there with Dan, Willem and RichTheFish from Thursday until Monday.

We're thinking of organizing a stop-and-say-hello session; that often acts as a good break from the chaos in the main fair.

Alternatively, we can meetup for a little longer, perhaps later in the day, perhaps I can book a table in a local restaurant for some dinner too.

No doubt there's time for a game of Carcassonne, and maybe that new promo or expansion... if it's not too foggy.

Let us know when you're attending, and if you'd like to say hello!

WHEN AND WHERE
We're meeting upstairs in the front foyer of the Messe at 2pm on Thursday and at 2pm on Saturday.
We'll likely be watching potions of the tournament held on Sunday.

I should be arriving in Essen mid to late afternoon on the Saturday, playing in the championships on Sunday (due to finish by around 17:00), then setting back home via Dusseldorf airport mid-afternoon on Monday, and would be happy to meet-up anywhere in that mix  :D

Sounds like you won't have too much time to see the fair! It closes around 5pm or 6pm. The tournament lasts a full day too (hopefully)!

Hopefully we can catch up on Sunday evening; but you'll see us waving flags from the side-lines during the tournament.

I am looking forward to arrive in Essen on Sat morning. I Hope there is still have enough time to visit the fair after check-in to the hotel. But will be there on Sunday during the tournament as it is THE GATHERING of Carc fans! After that I will leave on Monday.

However, I have to wait until mid Aug before I can book the flights and confirm everything. Hopefully there will still be hotel rooms available!

I like the idea of some dinner in a local restaurant on Sat or Sun evening, although I am happy with a stop-and-say-hello.

Just a reminder for folks coming to Essen. It would be wonderful to meetup with any Carcassonne fans out there and maybe try out the new Fog over Carcassonne.

Hello there,

My girlfriend and I are also attending the Spiel on Saturday and Sunday and would love to meet fellow Carcassonne fans for the first time. We are also really hyped for Fog over Carcasonne and were able to play it already at Spiel Doch! fair in Dortmund. As it is the first Carcassonne tournament we will witness, following the event will be a great pleasure.

At a gathering of Carcassonne fans that we're organising here on the forum?

I can certainly give official answers to all questions in my limited capacity.

Welcome to the forum Marv, it'll be great to see you. I'm thinking
we'll be meeting in the main foyer inside the Messe up outside the halls, at around 2pm on Thursday and Saturday. Does that work for you?
