This site contains information about VTES games in Finland, concentrating on the general Helsinki area.
The Ropecon 2016 ECQ will be held on a Friday as traditional (29.7.), but this time the venue is different: the Messukeskus congress center in Helsinki. As usual, the tournament is part of the Ropecon gaming convention, so while no tournament entry fee is required, you do need a Ropecon day/weekend ticket.
The tournament is in Hall 5, according to the info I have at the moment.
The tournament follows the normal constructed 3 rounds + final format, with a 2-hour time limit. No deck lists required in general, but I will be asking for deck lists from all 5 finalists (which can be provided later, no need to bring printouts unless you want to).
Please be advised that the tournament will run up to around midnight for the preliminary rounds, and into the early morning hours for the finals! :)
The tournament starts at 18:00, with registration on site opening around 16:00 and closing at 17:30.
Important: please be there on time, and let me know (SMS +358 44 5754100 or Facebook message) if you'll be late!
PRE-REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. If your name is on this list, you do not need to register on site, just be there by 18:00 latest. If your name is not on this list, you need to register on site by 17:30.

Links to some selected local tournament reports, see the VEKN forums and calendar for full lists. We currently have a semi-monthly tournament running in the Helsinki area, largely due to the heroic efforts of Janne, the NC. :)
