Wrapping up 2022 with ANC

Here’s a list of the remaining events for the year:

Christmas party hangout and music quiz Wed 7.12. at 5 pm, Terrakoti
This hangout hosts the traditional ANC game music quiz. Our honorary member Paavo has once again collected a playlist of 15 of the world’s best pieces of video game music, and it’s up to us to find out what plays where and when. No great precision is needed for this quiz, but this year taking part with lowered difficulty is also possible, you’ll be given the choices and you’ll only have to put them in the right order. Since it’s also a Christmas party you can also look forward to some glogg and gingerbread. Welcome.

Smash-weekly Thu 8.12. at 5 pm, Turku-hall

Finnish Championship of Nintendo 2022

The main event of the year, The Finnish Championship of Nintendo, 2022 edition is coming near! Like every year, attendees compete in different Nintendo consoles to see who really is the best.

The games are kept as a secret and you will find them out when the tournament begins, so no one can prepare for the tournament before hand; you can survive with experience on different kinds of games.

This year the format of the tournament will be the most asked and requested DOUBLES TOURNAMENT, so all you have to do is to find a friend, your significant other, or a stranger at the tournament to compete for the title of winner.

This event is free and open for everyone. Alcohol or other intoxicating substances are strictly banned from this event. You can sign up to the tournament till the day of the event!
