Household information

 

  • The tournament will be held on the Saturday. We have rented a conference room (since edition 2013 this is conference room Deutschland) at the Spiel. Official doors open of Spiel at 10:00am (till 19:00pm). Registration starts at 10:15. First round of play will start at approx. 10:30. Be on time, as we have a time schedule to follow.
  • The registration fee is maximum Eur 85.-/team. As we organise the event as volunteers we do not have the goal to make any profit. We have set this fee to be able to cover our expenses. Starting from the 2016 edition the participation fee is Eur 80.-/team, unless we find additional sponsors. In return each team get 4 copies of the games send out to you for training purposes and an additional 4 copies after the tournament. So 8 games in total (and maybe some prizes). Note: The entrance fee for Spiel is not included in the fee. Neither food/drinks!!!!   In case you go multiple days, you can save money by buying a multiday pass.
  • Any customs you are being charged for by your local government for the shipment of the training copies are costs to be taken by your team. Unfortunately we can not offer to compensate these costs.
  • Payment can be done at the start of the tournament, please have the registration fee for your team in cash with you (so we do not have to exchange money). We do not accept credit cards or personal cheques.
  • The tournament area is a non-smoking area
  • Each team should strive to have a reserve player. Also this player should know the rules and games. If you are not able to bring along a reserve player this is NO PROBLEMO as other teams will have them (or we as organisation). So in case due to circumstances the size of your team will drop below 4 players, do NOT decline from participation as you put the organisation in a very difficult situation (as we spend a huge amount of hours/days to create a gaming schedule to maximize the plays against different nationalities and nullifies the play against the same player twice), but show up and play with a reserve player from a different team.
  • The organisation of EuropeMasters is done completely by volunteers. Please keep this in mind. We put a lot of effort and energy to provide a high standard tournament. But we are not doing it as a profession.
  • It is not allowed to feed the referees! We want to keep them wild 😛
  • During tournament play the organisation will take some pictures for our sponsors. Also the tournament area is open for the press. We try to minimize to disturb your gameplay. And ask for your understanding as without the PR we do not get sponsors, and without sponsors there is no EC.
  • Accommodation: Check in time! Spiel attracts many visitors from all over the world and it can be hard to find a nice affordable accommodation if your wait too long.
