Missing Something? Dominion & Carcassonne

Previous players will note the absence of Dominion and Carcassonne tournaments. Over the last four years we have personally underwritten the running of these tournaments. During this time we have been unable to attract sufficient players or additional financial support from the industry to make these tournaments at least break even. Should this change in the future we would look to reintroduce these tournaments but at this stage they are not economically feasible. This was not an easy decision for us to make but we think necessary to maintain the long term future of the other tournaments and events we run.
