I communicated with the manager of hotel after queenbee's last post and he confirmed me that atm there are no free rooms since yesterday. It is also very likely in next days to have some from possible cancellations.
Now there is availability in another hotel nearby the main hotel which has the same owner as Evia Hotel &Suites. Rooms are lower quality but almost the half of price. It needs in your contact to mention that you are intersted for room in this hotel.
Name of this hotel is Delfini and all the informations are in our official invitation.https://ufile.io/pougl
Except Delfini I believe that there are still rooms in Marmary bay  but needs contact with email.
I repeat again for anyone who wants to join and face difficulties in the booking of his hotel to contact me asap.

Not sure if I was actually the one to take the last room at the Evia but when I made my reservations I was informed that it was the last room available on the website I was using.

I would like to see Unladen Swallow and Hielcos name on the list of participants. Nortrom and maxroelofs name also better turn blue :)
I don't plan on going all this way to not play the best players in the world.

@ wogomite

 

It is really very nice news that an American player (the last one and the only one as far as I know was M2C) will cross the Atlantic again after 4 years  and will join this special event . Now we can consider this tournament as a real WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP . We own you a big thanks for that. :)

And yes you are going to play face to face ,maybe with not all, but for sure with a lot of the best players in world.

Looking forward to see you in Greece.

@Wogomite: there will be a very large number of ex-world champions at the live board attending at the tournament. With the current world champion Stavros, playa1, Vincent de Boer and Steffen Annies there is 4 confirmed.

 

If that is not enough competition we also have George Franka, the man that has been in winning position for the world championship more than any other player. Ask Greg about that, or read the thread :D

 

On top of this both winners of the WCO will be there :)

Im ready for Sun, Sea & Stratego

Look at the place. It's falling down. Someone needs to clean it up.  :P

 

I wish I could come. Can you set up a live cam at the site? That would be so cool for those of us who can't make it feel like we are still a part of it. Come on. One of you has to have a webcam and youtube makes it so easy. Different players in between matches can chat with those of us around the world and we can experience it vicariously through everyone's eyes.

Ι do not think so  :) . This place (Parthenon in Acropolis of Athens) has been resisted in wars, earthquakes and other disasters the last 2.500 years so it is not so likely to fall down. 

The live streaming (through youtube or facebook) is something which is possible to be done if Wifi inside the tournament hall is enough strong to support it. If it is technical possible I think that we can do it. 

 

For those players who have not decided yet , there is still a month to make the big decision. If there are problems with the hotel booking please contact me.

This WC has been organised for more than one year and it will be an unforgetable experience for those lucky players who will attend it. Many surprises , a lot of new things - first time happening in a WC-   and for sure a lot of fun.  ;)

Will you miss it?

Surely you know I am joking. I would love to see the Parthenon and many sites in Greece, but it is the people who make it special to me. Karaiskakis that is all I ask is to try. My mind is willing, but my body is not able to traverse such a long distance.

Some information about the main picture of the poster
 
1) This painting decorates the amphora of Exekias and was a gift to an athlete named Onitorides.
2) The illustrated ancient Greek warriors, are Achilles and Ajax, dressed with armors. 
3) They are playing a board game during guard duty, at the Achaean camp, outside Troy. (Trojan War)
4) It is worth seeing that they are holding their spears even when they having some fun.

and 5)  The board game they are playing of course is not stratego but an ancient board game , which might be compared to a backgammon or checkers variant and which  was played with a die.

Of course they are playing Stratego! The orgin of the game is actually much older than the first Chinese idea of Stratego used with animal hierchy ...this picture is proof ;)
