Event Info – MiniEncounter0918
The 28th of September at 1600 hours the event MiniEncounter0918 will kick off in Bygdegården, Malax. For the price of 15€, you can reserve a seat to ensure a spot on the LAN event.
Just as our last Encounter we will have a minimum recommended age of 13 (or 12 if you’re turning 13 in 2018), in other words, you’re welcome if you are born in 2004 or earlier.
For those of you who haven’t visited any of our previous events, we can assure that there are activities for you even if you don’t arrive with a clan or a bunch of friends. Besides, you can make friends on location as our participators tend to have the same interests. You don’t even have to bring a computer to the event as we are also selling an all weekend visitor pass for 5€, these are paid at the event upon arrival.
In order for you to get information about the event you should log in to your Facebook account and like our Facebook page. We mainly reach out through this media and through hear-say, so if you’re coming don’t forget to tell your friends as this is no secret community.
You’ll be able to buy tickets 1 month before the event starts if nothing else has been stated.
- Go ahead and visit http://tickets.theencounter.nu and buy a ticket via our booking system. Before you can buy a ticket, you’ll need to register an account.
- After a successful registration, click the tab “Shop” and select “Purchase Tickets”. Select how many you’d like to purchase and proceed to select which bank you’d like to pay with.
- Complete the payment and you’ll be able to select a seat from the Seat map under the tab “Shop” -> “Reserve Places” as soon as the payment has been confirmed from Checkout.fi. You can buy more than one ticket (in case you are buying for a friend), but you are not able to reserve more than one seat per account. You’ll then need to go to “Place reservations” and under “My places” you’ll see your chosen seat, “Release” it and you’ll see a token. Give that token to the desired friend, they then enter the token under “Token” on “Place reservations”.

On every LAN-event we arrange you can find a console corner. We acquired this idea to entertain both visitors and players, but also because console-gaming has gotten bigger and is a great social-activity!
The games available to play right of now is FIFA 18, NHL 18 and NBA2k18. Yes, we know. Only sport-games, but they are the most competitive and the most fun for a group of people to play.
Tournaments will also be arranged for console. The past years we’ve had NHL 18 tournaments, but a FIFA 18 or NBA2k18 tournament is not a impossibility. It just depends on what the attenders wish for. Even visitors can attend our console tournaments, for a 10€ visitors pass of course. All the console tournaments are Winner takes it all and the winner is expected at the prize-ceremony.
Golden rule for the console corner
Damages caused to the equipment is not tolerated, you break, you pay.
