Some of the pictures:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/451074x5i12cavy/E4GujeZV99

Made by Massimiliano Colussi, an italian friend I met for the first time 16 years ago and who taught me SWCCG at that time. He isn't playing much anymore (only when I call him for the tournaments) and speaks few english (just for SWCCG but since it's been a while he has difficulties).
I'd like to thank him because he gave us, for free, 3 unopened boxes (JP, Premiere, Tatooine) for prize support.

Cool pictures DDM. The venue looks amazing -- was there a bar directly on site?!?!

Also, would be cool to have tags of the people to get to know the faces and names.

The venue is amazing. The bar is between the bigger and larger gaming rooms. There are tables and sofas in the bar (or "lounge"). Great prices, nice food and friendly staff.

To be more specific, the venue IS a bar, or a café at least. Its geared towards gamers, they have events, gamenights, they sell Magic the Gathering etc on-site. Its basically a combination gamestore/café. Best tournament venue I've ever been at; the staff is extremely friendly, they hang around gamers all the time (probably are gamers themselves if I had to venture a guess) and the prices are cheap. Already looking forward to going back for Europeans :)

Amazing. I wish we were allowed to have a game store that sells beer here in the states. Well, it might be legal outside of Pennsylvania, I dunno. :??

Get to know the local owners real well. I've had some after hours BYOB game nights.

This could probably work. I think Shewski knows the guy fairly well, we just haven't had a local in a while. We just get together casually to play here and there. I was mainly referencing the insane liquor laws in PA that don't allow anything like that.

Yes, it's day 3 only.
The place where most the games were is another big room, more professional.

I know that food (full dishes) were max 5€. I know me and Max spend 120€ all together but that's about 12-14 full dishes, drinks, and especially some 8-10 cocktails (which are more expensive, around 6€ a piece).
If I would have drank only coke, I would have spent around 80€ for the 3 days.
And I didn't care about my expenses: I just spent all I could because everything was so cheap :D
