Ropecon VTES Grand Prix, July 28th 2018
This year's big, traditional Ropecon V:TES tournament is
slightly different from previous years. First off all, it's on
Saturday, instead of taking up Friday night. Secondly, it is
part of this
Prix tournament circuit.
What does this mean in practice? It means that the players
don't need to stay up way past midnight in order to
play. We'll actually have a lunch break (gasp!). It also
means some extra prizes , Grand Prix ranking points, and
other small stuff. Overall, though, it's still the same
tournament: a chance to see a large chunk of the Finnish
VTES player community, and play against a lot of
interesting decks. For various values of "interesting".
Convention Center in Pasila, Helsinki (exact
address: Messuaukio 1, 00520 Helsinki).
Saturday July 28th 2018, starting at
11:00. Registration opens sometime around 9:00 on

happen to have a deck list available in online form (or on

- Have fun! The tournament has traditionally been a
fairly relaxed affair.
