Time to run!

All Netrunners are invited to take part in the Dutch Netrunner National Championships 2017. These are a single day event and will take place on Saturday, the 12th of August, with Swiss rounds and Top 8 on this day.  There will be a Cache Refresh side event on the following Sunday, for which registration will be on location, but is included in the main event ticket.

The Dutch National Championships will take place in the city of Enschede. Easily reachable by car or train and with several affordable hotels nearby the venue, the city of Enschede offers everything needed for a smooth and memorable day or weekend of running the Nets. The Enschede meta looks forward to welcoming you!

We’ll be following FFG’s official ANR tournament regulations for Premier Events. Please be aware of this. This includes the use of unofficial/custom art cards (not allowed).

Printed deck lists will be required at the event. Spare deck lists will be provided, so you may write down your decklists at the event.

Bringing your own food & drink is allowed at the main event. Please keep things tidy though as we would like to use the venue in the future as well!

Main Event

We’ve chosen to host the Dutch National Championships in one of the most prolific venues of the region; the Muziekkwartier.  The entire event on the 12th of August will take place in an intimate but very accommodating hall within the venue. The Muziekkwartier is based squarely in the middle of Enschede, sitting next to the  trainstation and with parking opportunities within walking distance.

Location for the National Championships (12.08)

One of the halls within the Muziekkwartier. Use the Kaliber Kunstenschool entrance (Kaliber School of Arts, exact address listed below) to enter the building. You will be directed to the Netrunner National Championships.

Side events

The Dutch Netrunner National Championships 2017 would not be complete without side events. Following the Championships on Saturday, there will be a casual Cache Refresh side event on Sunday, the 13th of August. There’s also a small pre event on Friday, the 11th of August for early arrivers and anyone looking for some casual Netrunner fun.

Take note: The venue for side events differs from the venue for the Netrunner National Championships.*

Side events will take place at the home and FLGS of the Enschede meta; the awesome Comicasa store!

*We’ve chosen to structure the entire weekend of events this way to offer the maximum possible amount of Netrunner. The cozy nature of the Comicasa store is perfect for small scale tournaments and side events, but less so for a National Championship where we require a certain amount of room for optimal play with 30+ participants. On the other hand, the facilities (and costs) of the Muziekkwartier are too large scale for a full 3 days of running Nets. This structure offers the optimal combination.
