4p international Agricola tournament in Oslo – October 11-13 – EIKWmFr draft 9
11-13 October there will be an international Agricola tournament in Oslo city centre. Anyone can register to participate in the tournament. All players will play 7 games in the tournament, with 2 games Friday night (from 17.00) , 3 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday (the tournament will be finished latest Sunday 16.00). The format will be draft 9 with decks EIK+Wm+France, with some cards banned. We are hoping for a lot of participants from outside of Norway, anyone is very welcome!
To encourage players from outside of Norway to travel to Oslo, some of the organizers who have an extra bedroom offer tournament players the opportunity to stay at their place at no cost. We have approx. 8 spaces like this.
UPDATE JULY 13: We now have 17 registered participants, 10 from Norway and 7 from outside of Norway. We are hoping for more people to register, and are very much looking forward to the tournament! Most of the free bed spaces are taken, although we offer to sponsor a 4-person shared room in a hostel in the Oslo city center, if there are more people coming from abroad who need cheap lodging.
The tournament is arranged by a group of Agricola enthusiasts who live in Oslo. We are part of the board game club Ares, who has hosted weekly board game nights in Oslo since 1983, as well as the group «Agricola Norway» that (together with Ares) arrange Agricola tournaments in Oslo several times each year. The players who are mainly responsible for hosting this particular tournament are Rune Halvorsen (runeho), BA Kildalen (donba32) and Bernt Ivar Nødland (Turambar), the names in paranthesis are our usernames on Agricola websites Play-Agricola.com and Boiteajeux.

Travelling to Oslo
The tournament will be held somewhere in Oslo city centre (exact location still to be decided, depending on how many players register).
If you are flying to Oslo the closest airport is Gardermoen, from which it is a 20 minute train ride to the city centre (two different options: NSB trains or airport express train, the latter is more expensive, but the former usually more crowded).
