The National Championship Rifugio will be sunday the 6th of November during Spellenspektakel in Jaarbeurs Utrecht. With beautiful prizes: A Silver set for the winner (meaning: a silver puppet made by goldsmith Kirsten de Bruijn, five silver plated houses and silver/grey colored Extra Stepcards, helicopter and rafts), an orange set for the runner up and a purple set for the number three. Are you in? It's 24 player maximum and you can already sign up via the event on the facebookpage of NRPGames.
Apart from the prizes mentioned above, the top 3 players will also get a Rifugio Hi-King Card. On which they can mark the skill with which they've won the tournament. And their names will be added to the RIFUGIO HALL OF FAME. Here you'll find all podiumfinishers of the last 6 National Championships, the winners of the 32 Rifugio Tournaments (not National Championships) that were organised before and the last two winners of the 27 student battles at Rifugio in the Richel. A full report of each tournament can be found at the bottom of this page.
