Priority is speed of play, skills and deluxe or classic. Most players will want to play the 39 deluxe campaign. About 4 weeks before the con start you`ll get a list of the players on your table, so you can agree on exact starting time, who brings a game, detailed optional rules and so on. Notice that there is always the possibility of a last minute change players on your table.

Certain optional rules are mandatory and you will be required to "bid" for MP and Victory hexes (You can of course agree with the other players on your table as to who plays what...).

Note that the pricing system of Deutsche Bahn is complicated. Contact me for infos on discounts. In general, it is cheaper to buy your ticket at least 4 days ahead. It is possible to pay with your credit card and print the ticket.

By Air:
Frankfurt or Duesseldorf, then by train to Hofgeismar. I will try to arrange carpools.

By Car:
The front door of the hotel is not accessible by car. Free car parking is available at “Georgenstrasse”; it is roughly a 15-seconds walk from there to the hotel´s back entrance.

11. Miscellaneous:
The hall capacity is max. 10 playing tables, usually matched at 5 players a table. Some tables might end up with 4 or 6 players.
If you want to play as a team, we will match you up provided there is another team of equal strength for the opposite side. Teams willing to play the Allies are difficult to match.
At the joint dinner on saturday, we will award the prizes.

Looking forward to seeing you all again,
regards Markus.
