The open Finnish Agricola championships will be played at Lautapelaamaan 2016 event. Four best players will be awarded with prices from Lautapelit.fi and Suomen lautapeliseura ry. The best Finnish player will also get right to represent Finland in the Agricola Worlds held some time in 2017.

The tournament will be played either using rules based on the German championship rules. German rules can be found from Lookout tournament pages. In case Mayfair/Lookout provides updated rules in English then the tournament rules will be based on them. In any case the final rules will be published in Finnish on 31st of October. The rules will be published both on Lautapelaamaan event pages  and on our society forum. I will provide translation of the rules in English if it is needed and required. Please note that the tournament games will be played with Finnish 2016 edition of the game and the cards are in Finnish. You are allowed to register your own ”cheat sheet” either in Swedish, English or German to be used during the play. All games are 4 player games if possible. The tournament will have three qualifying rounds and one final round. In case no Finnish players qualify for the final then a separate additional championship final will be played with only Finnish players to determine who may represent Finland in the worlds.

We are prepared for 16 contestants, chosen in order of preregistration by email to address kilpailut@lautapeliseura.fi. We reserve a right to grow the number of participants based on the popularity of the preregistration.
