Fanaat is the games club at the University of Twente. You can always find people at Fanaat for a board game, a quick game of cards and many other kinds of entertainment, from complex war games that take days to a party game on a console. Not only does Fanaat offer a large and varied collection of board games, Fanaat also offers various consoles, each with an extensive library of (mostly multiplayer) games. Magic the Gathering and role-playing 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 booster packs 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.
