Not a serious competition. There are points awarded for positions etc but it's semi-competitive since win or lose, you'll still get to change table and the chance to play with new gamers on other tables and new /different games each round.


 


The serious competitive feel is usually on Table #1 only... but then you need to be a seriously competitive player to remain in Table #1 anyway. The rest of them just enjoy the sessions flitting between Table #2 and #6 etc


 


Have you read our sessreps on our past Retreats?

So these two-day retreat is a competition??




btw Cham, the door gift is a special Essen 2014 dice. A collectible that we do not sell but bought direct for Retreat participants from Essen yearly. Last year's participants got Essen 2013 dice. :P

Every table plays the same games you mean? Else cannot compete fairly, right? And the game choices are fixed?

Nope every table plays different games. It's not meant to be "an even competition". It's meant to be FUN!

Hi, is everyone in the forum?


If anyone needs car-pool, we can discuss here.

Or do you prefer to discuss on the retreat FB event page?

Wai Yan, I still think a whatsapp/wechat group would be better. You get real-time reply from everyone plus its easier to make announcement than relying on facebook and forum. Not everyone are on these platform all the time.
