MSO Cambridge 2002 this weekend
- After its successful Cambridge debut last year, there will be another
Mind Sports Olympiad event in Cambridge this weekend - starting on
Saturday 4th May and running through to Bank Holiday Monday 6th May.
This year's venue is Parkside Community College, very near the town's
central bus station.
Tournaments most likely to be of interest to this mailing list include
the English Settlers of Catan Championship on 6th May and the innovative
Reiner-Rama - a Saturday morning tournament in four of Dr. Knizia's
games. For the CCG fans, there are tournaments in Magic: the Gathering
and Vampire: the Eternal Struggle; those who prefer the classics will
enjoy the usual tournaments in chess, bridge, Scrabble, Othello, go,
backgammon and many more. There will be tournaments in over twenty
different mind sports, many appearing at a MSO event for the first time.
Individual tournament entry fees vary between £2.50 (the Reiner-Rama)
and £10 (Skat and draughts). Many tournaments have prizes, frequently
depending upon the level of entries, with thanks to our sponsors KN Nash
& Co., patent attorneys, local shop Games & Puzzles and Purple Software.
On top of the scheduled competitions, there will be demonstartions of a
number of new games and space available for social open gaming.

you there this weekend!
