The legendary Swedish event – Website:
Well screw that whole pandemic, I say. We’re back, a couple of years late, to finally host the 13th annual n00bcon. A few things have changed since last. We are all older and wiser now for one. And – perhaps in particular – n00bcon is no longer the World Championship for Oldschool Magic. That Shark has swimmed (swam?) all the way down to Genoa, Italy, to be awarded during winc0n in September. So there are no qualification tournaments or things like that which we saw in older days to scramble for the invites. Instead, n00bcon is now mainly a gathering of old fools, friends, and familiar names in the community. I kinda guess it was like that before as well. The main thing now is that participation is somehow even more based on nepotism than before. If you’d like to join, the easiest way these days is to be a friendly dude with a solid track record in the community.
Even though we’re scaling down a bit and the winner wont get to call themselves World Champion, I presume the tournament will still be brag-worthy. The winner will get a pack-fresh Giant Shark and all that, and at least they can call themselves n00bcon champion. So bring your A-game fools!

Starting main event: Friday, 13:30.
Swedish rules, seven grueling rounds of Swiss followed by a top8. Rounds in the Swiss are 55 minutes, the top8 is un-timed, but expected to be played at a reasonable pace.
