so NH hotel in Naarden is good?

 

Any NH hotel is pretty good. Strong brand.


I hereby grant explicit permission to all my opponents to record and publish my games as they see fit.

Yes, the NH Naarden is close to the location. I was inside it looked fine to me, only downside I saw was that they also charge seperately for parking. It is 100 meters from the yacht harbor of Naarden, close to the water if you like that sort of thing.

 

The NH Jan Tabak is a bit further and looked more luxurious, but the room rates I saw were higher too. A lot of business people were staying hereI think parking there was free (they had no entry/exit for parking)

 I have booked in NH Jan Tabak .  It is exaactly 2.1 km away from the location of the tournament (25 min walk) 

Today the cost for a double room is 80 euros per day

NH Naarden hotel is 200 metres more far (2,3 km) and the cost is 5 euro less (75 euro) but at least for today it looks there is no availability for rooms. 

Up to my opinion NH Jan Tabak is more luxurious choice with actually the same cost and a little bit closer to Arsenal restaurants

Alternatively there is the choice to search in Airbnb but cost starts from 60-65 euro for questionable choises.

Hi ! I'm interested. I want to travel in Europe this summer and I don't want to miss such an event. 

As I never did a live stratego tournament, I'd like to ask, so if I want to play the tournament, I should first play the barrage and then if I've played well enough I can play the WC tournament ?

Barrage is Dutch Quick Arena, in essense. You don't have to take part in the barrage tournament to participate at the WC.

The Barrage event on the Thursday is completely separate from the main event. It has the nicest location though so even if you would not play there, if you are in Naarden I highly recommend to come and take a look.

 

You can participate separately in the main event (Friday and Saturday) and if you like also join the Naarden Open on Sunday (or play in the Country teams if your country has enough players). What country are you from?

 

The atmosphere will be unbelievable on the Thursday event. It will feel like 1815 and Emperor Napoleons troops still around somehow.

The Fortress Museum (Barrage event is held here) has a very nice logo too.

I think so, too, but for some reason his English is better than the rest of Yangus' aliases.

We have made an English version of the pre-invite document for all potential participants.

 

It contains a lot of information about the World Championship 2018.  As soon as it is reviewed,edited and approved for release, I will also make sure that the content is availble here. Main purpose is to email the potential players from countries where we organize tournaments.

Very nice to see that there has been done so much effort for the WC. It always has been an event that you do not want to miss :). I also see that the list of international players is growing who are interested to go. This is a good development!
