Grand Prix Milan 2023 was played in Paderno Dugnano on December 9. Words by Massimo Vaccari, Prince of Milan:

The Italian community tried something different for this year; we decided to have the Grand Prix in a very special location, a nice pub just outside the city of Milano. The location is The Wipeout Pub and Games, a special place for the local community where they play VTES in the evening. It was a bet but the result was fantastic. 60 players coming from all across Europe come with the goal to be the best; all of them face the others in a three round game that has led to the final table. They, at the end, stood against the power of the Tupdog, with master Danilo who managed the table until his final victory. You can read the awesome fiction of the final made by Martin here.

All the Italian princes want to thanks all the participant of this Grand Prix, first of the season, and we hopes to see again in the future.

Some words from our National Coordinator Miro: “As Max said, this weekend was a blast. It was really a pleasure seeing so many players from other countries alongside our community (which grows in numbers month after month), and after a bit of time we finally had a big tournament with a real international flavor. So a big thanks to all participants, a special thanks to all the people who supported us with special prizes and gifts (Black Chantry, Card Game Geek, Black Penny, Ultra Pro, The Pot Still, Kraken Nest), and a great thank with a hug to all my princes and fellows of the VTES Italy staff, who worked hard to make this event real.”
