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


P.S.: Many thanks also to Jukka for the event poster, Taneli for the math trade, Emmi & Jeremy for the breakfast buns and to all the people that took a shift at the front desk.
