  1. Here's some info on the Classic Tetris European Championship (CTEC) 2019 (copy/paste from the facebook page):

    CTEC 2019
    Finally! The dates are official! We are happy to announce that the date will be 20th and 21st of September 2019.

    We expect the Classic Tetris European Championship - CTEC to take place at Enigma Museum for post, tele & kommunikation which is very central in Copenhagen.

    BIP BIP BAR and I (Chrisstoffer Daniel) have joined forces with this great Museum which will hopefully be the returning location for many future Tetris Tournaments and Retro Gaming Expos to come.

    As a lot of you Tetris players and friends know, it is a yearly battle behind the scenes to find the right spot. Every year has been an exciting adventure with new locations and new connections. We thank everyone and all venues for their part in this journey - we have needed you all.

    We will be competing in both Game Boy and NES. However, it is our goal to provide Tetris on more platforms for you to play for fun.

    CTEC will be a part of www.retroexpo.dk again and by so attract a bigger audience year after year.

    The CTEC and Expo team will soon sit down and make the event and time schedule available for the public.

    The new location is 15 min (by foot) from Bip Bip Bar (where the afterparty will take place), and Enigma is in every way the missing piece as we try to live up to the professionalism and great work we see from our American friends and colleagues behind Classic Tetris World Championship

    Thanks for playing and being the motivation for doing this year after year.

  2. Thanks for spreading the info! I'll see later on if I can manage to attend! :D
     
  3. Oh, on Facebook it says the location is the Bipbipbar itself. So which one is now the actual location (confirmed)? Also, will we need to buy tickets for the Retro Expo if we participate in the CTEC main event and / or qualifier? If yes, where?

  4. Retro Expo and CTEC will be in the same location, which will hopefully soon be unveiled.
    I have no idea what expo tickets will be priced at, but I'm guessing they will be very cheap.

    It is very close to Bip Bip Bar, if that matters.
     
  5. If it's infact the museum, it's good, because there is a good (and not so expensive) hotel nearby that I could book.
