one week still to go, till we will enter castle stahleck this year. if you want to join, its still possible!

there have been a few updates recently, concerning the program and card legality (see stahleck homepage also, a list of prizes is available. look at the stahleck threads in the forums for AGOT, COC or WHI.

note, that there are going to be 2 championships for AGOT and COC each, one for Standard and one for LCG. they are not at the same time, so of course players can participate in both.

finally, i am happy to announce, that artist Ilich Henriquez will be attending (friday&saturday). he is ready to sign some cards, show his artwork, answer questions and share a good time with us. and why dont just play a game with him?

@jens: if you have any questions feel free to contact me directly at [email protected] or go to the specific thread in "your" forum (depends on the game you are prefering).

its quite likely that there will be at least the first WHI battle pack available till then.

 The castle looks sooo fantastic!

As i really like this game a lot, now i am thinking about getting to Stahleck as well. Thx for organizing these several Warhammer Invasion events. 

Does anybody know if any of the chapter packs will be available until then?

Are there any images of the bedrooms available in the net? I would like to see in advance how i would relax over night, because of 5+ hours travel from and to Hamburg on friday and sunday.

>>echtalion: Besides, how much of the championship will be Warhammer: Invasion? As I don't play any of the other 2.<<

besides demoing, we are planning at least 3 tourneys:

1) playing a randomly chosen deck straight from the coreset

2) play your own deck

3) draft

i will start a stahleck-thread in the warhammer invasion section soon. we can discuss things there then.

>>echtalion: And, is the accomodation in the castle?<<

of course it is!

hope to see you at stahleck!

Aha! Someone has added the email address to the side of the organizer's  name. Cheers.

I don't have Outlook, can someone post the organizer's email address? I need to enquiry a bit before I book my ticket. Besides, how much of the championship will be Warhammer: Invasion? As I don't play any of the other 2.

And, is the accomodation in the castle?
