10th Mind Sports Olympiad now in progress
- The Mind Sports Olympiad has moved back to London for its tenth annual
event; this year, we're at the University of Westminster, directly
opposite Madam Tussaud's, about three minutes' walk from the Baker
Street station on the London Underground.
The event started today and goes on until Sunday 3rd September. There
are a wide variety of tournaments, including these ones most likely to
be of interest:
Acquire | Monday, August 28th | 09:30 to 17:30
Carcassonne | Sunday, September 3rd | 09:30 to 13:00
Diplomacy | Sunday, 27th August | 09:30 to 22:00
Lost Cities | Saturday, September 2nd | 09:30 to 13:00
Settlers of Catan | Saturday, September 2nd | 14:00 to 22:00
...plus all the usual suspects, like more chess than you can shake a
stick at and poker every night until the 2nd. We have some rather
handsome little trophies as prizes.
Entry fees are down on last year, but if you haven't booked already
then you'll need to pay a late fee surcharge. All the information you
