Saturday 15th August
From 3:30 pm until 11:00 pm
In the land of Terra Mystica dwell 14 different peoples in seven landscapes, and each faction is bound to its own home environment, so to develop and grow, they must terraform neighbouring landscapes into their home environments in competition with the other factions. Terra Mystica is a game with very little luck that rewards strategic planning. Each player governs one of the 14 factions. With subtlety and craft, the player must attempt to rule as great an area as possible and to develop that faction’s skills. There are also four cults in which you can progress. To do all that, each faction has special skills and abilities.
This tournament is open to all players, beginners and Terra Mystica experts alike.
– 3 Rounds
– 4 Player Games
– Rounds 1+2 Heats, Round 3 Final
