In addition of winning a national championship there are a few other ways to play in the Final of the Carcassonne World Championships: the winner of the Mind Sports Olympiad Grand Prix Carcassonne tournament has the right to take part, too. Also one player from each team which reach the first three places of the WTCOC (World Team Carcassonne Online Championship) may play. Further we will give away one wildcard in a "Last Chance" tournament where all people can play who live in countries that do not take part in the World Championship (more will follow soon).
*** Statement of publicher Hans im Glueck regarding Russian war actions against Ukraine:

We have decided to immediately discontinue any licenses our Russian partners have to produce and distribute our board games in Ukraine. Even though it will take time until a proper market for board games might develop on its own, it will be a market with new and local partners.
Also, we have put any proceedings on hold regarding new licenses for upcoming game productions in Russia. We are aware that by not being able to purchase and play board games we will not necessarily have an effect on the responsible groups of people in Russia. Still, we see the need to join the community and act in solidarity.
In accordance we needed to decide on whether to invite Russia / Belarusia to the Carcassonne World Championship. It is our belief that the Carcassonne WC stands for diversity and international understanding. In this it is a strong platform to take a stand against the Russian attack (& the Belarusian support of it) on Ukraine and condemn any related actions. There are Russian / Belarusian citizens who disagree with the actions of their governments. We want them to have the opportunity to position themselves against the war. Russian / Belarusian participants, who want to join the games under the banner of peace are very welcome to do so. Of course, the same will apply to the winner of the Russian / Belarusian National Carcassonne Championship, if they are able to come to Germany for the WC. Any participants who do not respect these terms or do not wish to follow them are barred from the event.
