In Memoriam – Martin Medema
It is with great sadness that we must announce the passing of Martin Medema during the night of Monday the 4th of February to Tuesday the 5th after spending 2 weeks in hospital.
Martin had been an honorary member of Fanaat for many years and made many of the games we use here. Many of us do not know the Drakenkelder without him and we will miss him greatly.
Our thoughts are with his friends and family.
You can contact the board of Fanaat for any questions.
Fanaat is the games club at the University of Twente. You can always find people at Fanaat for a boardgame, a quick game of cards and many other kinds of entertainment, from complex wargames that take days to a party game on a gamesconsole. Not only does Fanaat offer a large and varied collection of boardgames, Fanaat also offers various consoles, each with an extensive library of (mostly multiplayer) games. Magic the Gathering and roleplaying games like Dungeons and Dragons are also played regularly at Fanaat.
Fanaat’s main game nights start every tuesday and thursday evening at 20:00. There are also other activities held regularly like LAN-parties, tournaments and screenings of e-sport matches.
We also organize the Fanaat Open once every other month. This is a gameday were everyone including externs can visit our association and play games from our collections.
Every first monday of the month at 19:30 starts the Fanaat Magic Draft, where you can join in for a game of magic: the gathering by buying some boosterpacks and building a deck out of them. Aside from that, there is casual EDH every other monday.
To become a member of Fanaat you need to do the following:
- You need to own a Union Card. For University students, this can be done at dms.utwente.nl
- Head over to our club room “De Drakenkelder” (The Dragon Dungeon) and fill in a sign-up form. The membership fee is 20 euros.
- This step is important, and it is regularly done incorrectly. Only at this point do you go to dms.utwente.nl and register with the association Fanaat, available under ‘Profile>Organizations’. If you have not done step 1 and 2 prior to this step, your registration will be refused!
Of course it is possible to join us a couple of times during our game nights to see what we offer. Non-students can visit our game day Fanaat Open, held every couple of months. For more information, check our Fanaat Open page.
