MKM Series Milan 2017

Event Coverage of the MKM Series Milan 2017

Latest News

If you've seen the coverage and this group's follow-up posts, you should have a pretty good idea of what happened at #mkmsmilan this past weekend—from the coverage reporters' limited perspective. If you attended the event, I'm sure you have lots more stories to share. So please do share them!

As a little bonus and extra incentive, I have three vouchers of €10 each for MagicCardMarket.eu to give away. (Continue reading all the way to the bottom and find out how to get them!)

We want to learn as much about other people's experiences as possible, and the other members of our community surely do too! After all, Magic players love swapping stories, right? So … which main/side event(s) did you play in and how did you do? Did you have fun? What deck(s) did you play and why? What decks did you play against? Got any stories of great games? Bad beats maybe? Did anything cool or interesting happen, or did you learn anything? And what did/didn't you like about MKM Series Milan 2017?

You could write a traditional tournament report or a list of notes. Focus on details or the big picture. Give bare facts or give your opinion. Tell us all about your weekend or limit yourself to just the most interesting parts. And if you want a chance to get a free €10 for MagicCardMarket.eu follow these simple rules:

(1) Write a minimum of 300 words about your experience at MKM Series Milan 2017.

(2) Make a post in this group out of it, or publish your story elsewhere and make a post here to share the link. You can even add photos if you got any. Everything must of course adhere to the group policy. And yes, we want posts, not comments!

(3) We just now passed 300 words by the way.

(4) Do all of the above by Friday next week, March 31. Then wait for the voucher winners to be announced here over the course of the weekend. One voucher will be awarded to the person whose post received the most Facebook likes. A second voucher will be awarded by a jury of your MKM reporters Hans Hoeh, Mar Zum Tin, and myself. A third voucher will be raffled off randomly among all remaining posts.

Travel by plane

By plane

Milan has three different airports (Malpensa – MXP, Linate – LIN and Bergamo – BGY), so you should easily find an affordable flight. Linate is the closest airport, but you can get from either of the three airports easily to the venue.

All airports offer local transportation to Milan's city centre, however, Bergamo only offers connections by bus rather than trains, so it might take a little longer to get there.
