Another important question is which card deck? 70, 75 or 90.

I think if I were organising a tournament I'd specify a card deck to be used for the entire tournament.

More about the venue:
The convention will be held in an amazing place: la Bibliothèque Thiers.

The place was demolished by the Communards in 1871 and rebuilt as soon as 1873. It is largely dedicated to the Napoleonic Empire and includes original Napoleon's paintings by David. It was used as hospital for the french Poilus during the Great War.

Here are some pics of the place and the salons where you'll play your favorite wargames:

And a walk in the parc to feel the Paris vibes.

as some of you have asked, there is absolutely no languages problem at the Con. Last year we had players from the UK, Spain, Italy, Poland, USA, Belgium, Germany and there was absolutely no communication problem.

The venue is right in the center of Paris and the Metro is at 10 meters from the entrance, so it's really easily reachable.

If you have taken a look at the entrance fees, you have seen that the entrance is free for the ladies (and for the kids too). Last year we had a number of wives strolling between the games, some did play too! And after that they went strollin in the streets of Paris (credit card in hand!). :lol:

Hi Mark, what do you mean by "75 cards deck" ?

I hope that players will play with 90 cards deck and Tactic cards deck too.

Hi, everyone, I've been this WE at the French Open of Memoir'44 and met Richard Borg. Normally, we will have the green light to print maps for the tournament. I met belgian and french comrades ready to join us in Paris for the event. I have to talk with my club members and Bonzillou to bring precisions. Stay tuned !

This is maybe a bit off-topic given the thread but... are you also considering to organize an Ancients tournament?

Hi, this year, we will organize only a CCN tournament. We want to see how it will work. We are supported by the organization and our club but because it's our first time, we're gonna only make the CCN Tournament. If it works well, why not next year ?

We have decided to have 2 little tournaments (one each day based on 3 battles of different campaigns or theaters). The battles will be played in 2 hours. The tournament will be played in 3 swiss rounds as we do for our annual M44 tournament. I will post later the tournament rules.
Stay tuned !
Vive l'Empereur !
