Drakenkelder closed due to Corona

The Drakenkelder will stay closed and it will be for an unknown amount of time. All the key privileges have been halted by the University. This means that no one can enter the Drakenkelder. Since the Drakenkelder stays closed there will obviously be no offline events.

Whenever this pandemic is over and we have access to the Drakenkelder again we would like to organize a “back to the DK event”. Something like the lustrum. Play some games, hang out and see how everyone fared the last x weeks.

Lastly everyone please keep up with the news about corona a bit and follow all of the guidelines the government and the RIVM gave.

About Fanaat

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:

  1. You need to own a Union Card. For University students, this can be done at dms.utwente.nl
  2. Head over to our club room “De Drakenkelder” (The Dragon Dungeon) and fill in a sign-up form. The membership fee is 20 euros.
  3. 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.
