VTES European Grand Prix - BELGIUM

Dear methuselahs, welcome to Belgium!

The Grand Prix spans Saturday 24/02/2018 & Sunday 25/02/2018 and is hosted in Mechelen, 12 minutes away from Brussels Airport.

You can sleep, eat and play at our event location. Everything is taken care off for you, except your dinner since you might be on one of the city trips during dinner. Your accomodation is taken care of in your ticket, but you can also join single events and sleep elsewhere.
We start the weekend on friday evening with a guided city trip to our host city.
To let you recover, and allow the late arrivals to join us, our big saturday Draft tournament starts late. The draft will span many sets, using Third Edition as our base and building from there. Every set that includes anarch cards is included in this draft, while keeping other options open as well.
Our dropouts can join the Brussels city trip to visit the landmarks during nighttime.
Bright and early we start our Grand Prix on sunday, the second of the european tour, with exclusive participation awards and prizes for the event winner. The event winner will receive a free acces ticket to the European Championship, with a seat reserved at the VEG Finals table.

Accomodation Overview
The location is a hostel, therefore you will share your room with other players. We will arrage your rooms so you can sleep with friends. We can occasionally leave some beds open if there's no one to fill out your particular group with. If you join us with your partner we will arrange you a private room. There are no single rooms available at all.

Our event location is contingent on people sleeping at the hostel, so give it a fair chance when choosing your stay.
The hostel and personel are nice, it's really convenient to reach by Car, Train and Plane.

VEKN Draft rules apply
www.vekn.net/tournament-rules/7-limited-tournament-rules
  • You get the equivalent of 7 boosters.
  • Your minimum deck size is 35 cards.
  • Your minimum crypt size is 7 cards.
  • You are allowed 1 recursion.

To prevent possible cheating we will collect the unused sleeved printouts, now you wont be able to use that Galaric's Legacy hiding behind it ;) You can keep the sleeve and the printout if you'd like.

Why these sets?
Most of these have the following disciplines in common: Dem, For, Cel, Ani, Pre, Aus, Obf, Tha, Pro, Dom, Pot
All possible Anarch 3-way card options are available.
There is splash acces to black hand / sabbat tech
Using all of these sets allows for a greatly varied card pool. The person acros form you might want the entire BH/SOC booster while you like to focus down on a discipline and your predator is messing with the anarch stuff. Even fringe decks are possible. These sets allow for 25 unique viccisitude cards to be drafted if you are feeling gruesome.

Is Saturday draft the only event? No side if someone prefer constructed format?

We wanted to offer something special to the players. We could do a constructed side event if we get enough players on Saturday.
