Thanks to our survey, we now know that the congress was really well received! Nearly half (43%) of the participants who had already taken part in EGC thought that it was the best! Overall grade for this: 1.5 (1=very good, 2=good, 3=not so good, 4=bad).
The location also achieved a total of 2.0, despite food and drinks in the hotel (2.5) and weather (2.9). – By the way, foreign participants were less critical than the German participants in terms of food and weather…
Tops and Flops
The participants liked the Phantom Rengo (score 1.2), as well as the main tournament, Chess&Go, Crazy Go and Rengo (1.4 each). The Yose Go didn’t go down that well (2.3). At the events the board game evening was top (1.5), but also the Russian evening, karaoke and the movie “Surrounding Game” were well received, the excursions, however, unfortunately not (2,6).
Wonderful Initiative! It will be awesome if a sizeable number of participants are encouraged to attend from Africa.
