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 wednesday 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 wednesday.
