Inaugural Clubs Tournament

Time: Saturday 3pm - 5pm
Location: Hall E
Price: $2
Link: Clubs Tournament

Win our first national Clubs tournament! Slots are limited, so sign up now.

Prizes:
1st:     $50 of NorthStar Funny Money
2nd:    $25 of NorthStar Funny Money
3rd:     $10 of NorthStar Funny Money

About Clubs: Clubs is a more accessible ‘climbing game’ in the vein of Haggis and Tichu. And it plays from 2-6, so it is an excellent way to introduce non-gamers to the climbing card game genre or as a filler while you and your gaming friends are waiting for other games to finish.
