The Tournaments to be included are: Thurn and Taxis, Caylus,
Goa, Ra, Princes of Florence, Power Grid, Puerto Rico, Settlers
of Catan, St. Petersburg, and Ticket to Ride Combo,
along with the Hot New game for 2008: Race for the Galaxy.

Pillars of the Earth, San Juan, Vegas Showdown, Yspahan, Agricola, Brass, Stone Age and a brand new title released
at Essen to be announced November 1st, 2008.
BPA plaques will be awarded for each event and best overall
individual performance - providing plenty of laurel opportunities
for those who want to improve their standings in BPA's annual Caesar competition.
Open Gaming: Dedicated open gaming space will be provided
in the main gaming hall during the entire duration of the convention.

Hotel usually sells out prior to the deadline during Euro Quest
week. Chili's restaurant is attached to the hotel and is open for lunch
NOTE: Days Hotel will be undergoing renovations before and
during Euro Quest VI. This means that we will be using completely
renovated meeting space, but it also means that one floor of the
hotel will be undergoing daytime construction during the event.
This may pose noise problems for those attempting to sleep late
near the floor in question.
In addition, due to construction delays during ongoing renovations at Days Hotel, we regret to inform all potential attendees to expect construction-related difficulties on site. Consequently, this year we will be unable to provide our attendees the customary degree of amenities they have come to expect at this facility during our stay. Specifically,
1. Upon arrival and departure, you will need to use the rear entrance of the hotel for access to both the lobby and gaming space.
2. Access to Chili's will require exit of the hotel to reach the main entrance for the restaurant.
3. Restroom access may be limited to the second floor.
4. Some overflow open gaming may be moved to suites on the top floor if necessary.
We appreciate your patience!
If the hotel is full, we advise that you book into one of our overflow hotels on our Regional Information page. We also provide information on restaurants within walking distance and other attractions in the area.
When? Open Gaming starts at noon on Thursday, Nov. 6 and ends 6 PM Sunday, Nov. 9 (at least that's when the main game collection is going home!).
Tournaments begin 3 PM on Thursday and continue thru 3 PM on Sunday.
