JunaCon III Ticket to Ride tournament

We will again this year attempt to run a tournament for the popular Days of Wonder game, Ticket to Ride.

Ticket to Ride has been the ”gateway game” for many around the world, has sold hundreds of thousands of copies, and is one of the most fun train-themed games around. Days of Wonder, the publisher organised a World Championship with preliminary rounds in many countries (although, sadly, not Finland), which culminated in the finals in Paris, with the winner receiving a set of 45 golden trains and a trip on the Orient-Express.

It was that event that inspired us to host the first tournament in JunaCon I, and we hope to repeat that this year. For more, please visit the TTR Tournament page.

JunaCon II – Day 2

Day 2 of our little event has come and passed, closing it in a great way. There was the Ticket to Ride tournament, in which 16 people competed, with Tommi Lantta being the winner for the 2nd time in a row. Congratulations Tommi, and thank you to all who participated!!!

Today there was also some other Ticket to Ride games being played, including the new Alvin & Dexter expansion. On the heavier side of things, some more 18XX was played, in addition to a variety of other games, ranging from Von Kapf bis Kairo to On The Underground and more.

In all, 46 people attended JunaCon II, which was slightly more than JunaCon I. There was also a small monetary profit, which will be donated to the Suomen Lautapeliseura (the Finnish board game society). We hope everyone had a good time, and we would like to welcome you back again for JunaCon III, tentatively due to be held sometime in February-March 2012.

From the organisers, and the Stoori game club, a warm and sincere thank you!
Aleksi, Antti, Jari, Mikko, Teppo & Iraklis
