6. Wizard Champion
Wizard, a game that has been in the AMIGO range since 1996, is pleased to gather more and more enthusiastic players. With the introduction of national and international championships 3 years ago, a tournament world has been created which allows every player to compete with the best champions from all over the world.
This year, the international Wizard Championship takes place for the first time in Germany. Coming from 10 countries, the Wizard Champions together with the Vice- Champion will confront one another at Burg Frankenstein.
In August last year, the former German Wizard Champion Matthias Dasssinger and the Vice-Champion Alexander Gräwe competed against the international wizards at the Gen Con in Indianapolis. The winner of the International Wizard Championship 2009 was James DeOreo.
We look forward to experience a fair and exciting competition this year in Germany.
7. Burg Frankenstein
The romantic ruins of Burg Frankenstein are one of the most famous point of interest in the Rhine region. They are particularly well-known throughout Germany thanks to the annual Halloween Festival. The history of Burg Frankenstein began in the 12th century (firstdocumented in 1252) and is strongly related to legend and poetry. The legend says that Mary Shelley was inspired by the Burg to imagine her scary novel Frankenstein. Did she really see the Burg? This is still arguable. But the Burg is open every year to all the fright fans. More than 15.000 visitors surge to Burg Frankenstein to get the creeps and get frightened.
