The Carcassonne World Championship Final 2018 will take place on Saturday, October 27th in Essen / Germany during worlds largest game fair SPIEL (25th - 28th October 2018). Please keep in mind that the tournament will not take place on Sunday this year!!! We have reserved the hall "Rheinland" (Rhineland in English) below the fair grounds especially for the event and afterwards there will be a big party for all players in the evening hours right on the game fair at booth 1-F160 (that's the booth of Spielezentrum and right above the hall Rhineland). By the way: we have taken your critic seriously so you can also bring a friend, fiancee or spouse with you this time. :-)
This is the estimated timetable of the Final:
10.00 h Start of Registration
10.30 h Start of Tournament
around 13.00 h Lunchbreak
14.30 h Start Quarterly-Final
15.15 h Start Semi-Final
