Imaginarium Namur will organize a Starter event on Sunday 24/02
This is not a tournament but a free play event.
You could bring your own unchanged new deck or buy a new one in the shop.
Each participant will receive a promo card (randomly Dan Murdock, Lord Tremere, Angelique or Montano between others) and 3 gems.
The gem is the money of the shop. Each gem allow you to buy a drink or snack that is normally 1€ (so in fact you have 3€ back...).
Or you could spare and use them to buy card sleeves or other material.
But the shop wants to know how much players are interested.
Please answer here if you are interested and mention if you want to buy a deck.
End : 16:00 (or later if you want)
Entry fee : 5€
Rue Emile Cuvelier 17 (near the Beffroi and Place d'Armes)

The event is also announced the event on their facebook
I didn't catch it that way when you told me about it through SMS.
Well, far from me of refraining great initiatives like this one to gather players and have to play a few games ! However, I don't get it well ..
So, this isn't an official tournament and I guess we won't be playing 3 rounds + Final as usual, or is it ?
Or is it just free play ?
We come with our decks and play as we want, 1 or 2 or more games, then leave ?
And we have the opportunity to buy the new decks and play with them on that day ?
Don't get me wrong, and I don't want to create any conflicts or anything, but to attract players (mainly foreign players), it would be nice to have a bit more "structered play", imho.
First, I would have contacted our National Coordinator, Tom.
I would also have taken into consideration he his organising a tournament (basically on the same theme), the next week.
Okay I get it this isn't an "official tournament", or not even a tournement at all, but still our National Coordinator should be warned first about such initiatives (but this is just my opinion).
Now, I'm available on that day and to support such great opportunities to play and the great news that we have an official retailer in Belgium, I will join you for a few games (with my own decks, if I get it right).
I will also buy each one of new starters (on reserve of knowing the prices before ... thx).
(and plz Michel, this isn't personal critics about you. I know you're just relaying information and doing your best to boost the community, why I try to support you as well ^^)
The shopkeeper decided to make it a "free play" event.
One of the reason of this is , I suppose, that there is a little group of casual players going out of torpor that do not want to play tournaments anymore.
Also unless the promo cards, I think he does not have any vtes prizing yet to organize an official tournament.
I will check with him if we could make an official tournament of it, but without any guarantee.
He has already sold some new decks. I will send your desiderataz for that day.
The price for the decks is 18€/deck.
Let's him maybe start with VTES, see how many players are interested to come play in Namur, and then we could organize official tournaments.
