VTES Chile 2023 finalists

Words by Rodrigo “Faroock” Iturrieta, VEKN National Coordinator of Chile:

On December 8th, 39 Methuselahs participated in the 2023 Chilean National Championship of Vampire: The Eternal Struggle, which was held at the Mr Hotel (ex Hotel Neruda) in Santiago, Chile.

During the tournament we had the excellent opportunity to show the card game to Magic: The Gathering Commander and Flesh & Blood communities, since tournaments of these games were played in parallel. Additionally, demo tables were run throughout the day teaching VTES to all who were interested.
