Time has come to decide who will be representing Malaysia at the Catan International Finals in Essen this year!



Essen details

-----------------

1. Winner will win an all-expenses paid trip to Essen, Germany, from 19-22 October, with accommodation at Hotel Movenpick (one of the best hotels in Essen!) for 3 nights.

2. Winner will be given free entry to Spiel'07, the largest euro game convention in the world, for 4 days (18-21).

3. If winner wishes to attend all 4 days of Spiel'07, he/she will have to bear cost of 2 night's accommodation.

4. The tournament proper is on Saturday. Finals is on Sunday.

5. We will only be sponsoring 1 representative - the winner. The runner-up will be offered a place. but at their own expense, unless we/he/she finds a sponsor.

6. In the event that the winner is unable to make the trip, the runner-up will go in his/her place.

7. The basic obligations of the winner include:

a. Not embarass Malaysia, or Imagine Games, or Malaysian gamers.

b. Serve as assistant buyer and box mover for Imagine Games (last year we moved 40 boxes).

c. Not borrowing money from Imagine Games to buy all the goodies at Essen!



Qualifying details

-----------------------

1st Qualifier: 29 June - 1 July, Asia Game Zone, KL Convention Center (2 seats).

2nd Qualifier: 14 July 2007, Mage Cafe, Damansara Jaya (2 seats).

3rd Qualifier: 28 July 2007, Toybox, Petlaing Jaya (2 seats).

4th Qualifier: 11 August 2007, boardgamecafe, Cheras (2 seats).

5th Qualifier: 25 August 2007, MySciFiFan OUTPOST, Cineleisure Mall (2 seats).

Finals: 8 September 2007, To be announced.



**Last year's two representatives (Ryan & Kok Keong) receive straight entry into the National finals.

**Last year's other finalists will be invited to play in a seperate qualifier offering 4 seats.

**Proposed hosts please confirm the dates assigned to you.



Malaysian final details

-----------------------------

1. There will be 16 seats/4 tables in the finals.

2. Each player will play 4 games.

3. Player with the most wins will be the winner.



**This format is similar to the international finals.



Last year saw more than 80 unique participants, many of them newbies who picked up the game from a 6 week long Starbucks-Settlers promotion.



We are hoping for just as many, if not more, participants this year, so please spread the word!



And for all the gamers who did not participate last year... PLEASE, even though you may not like the game, do take part to show your support for the gaming community!



PLEASE do not be one of those geeks who proclaim their love, devotion and authority in euro games, but would not take a little effort to support the only, biggest and most prestigious euro game tournament in the country!



GOOD LUCK! See you in Essen!
