    All across the UK not including the SW 😛

    Though I am awesomely glad that such a thing exists and I’m hoping they prove hugely popular.

  2. If these things go well. Do one between 28-31 December when I’ll be travelling all the way from Australia into that great old London town 🙂
    best of luck to all entrants!

  3. what about caambridge?:o

  4. SD says:

    Damn, if the Edinburgh one was in September I’d so be there!

  5. Sarah says:

    I would love to go to the Manchester one, but I’m working in those exact hours 😥 Hope everyone has fun anyway 😀

  6. Alex says:

  10. Got my ticket for the London event 😀 Also, incredibly short journey to venue… WIN

  11. Liv says:

    I wish i could go to one but none of them are near me…
    Oh i wish youd come to hull

  12. Catherine says:

    My daughter is interested in gong tot the Manchester tournament – not to play Sopio but just to watch and possibly but some decks etc. Would this be possible? Thanks, Catherine.

    • Sopio says:

      Hi Catherine, whereas normally this would be fine, the places available are pretty much the capacity of the events, so if it sells out then there would be no room for her. Plus if we let one in to just watch and stuff then others will too which creates a logistical nightmare! If she pays entry then she can choose not to play – though she can learn the game as we go and it should be fun for her 🙂

  13. Beth says:

    Awesome. So if i pay and book the tickets and what not i wouldn’t have to play? Too amateur to compete you see ^^

    One that note, will you be hanging around in the cities before/after it finishes?
    ALSO, how popular has the manchester tournament been? just out of curiosity

  14. This is so awesome! Just bought my ticket to the London tournament!

  15. Hannah says:

    ahhh i have no one to go with, and this is the first thing thats come to Birmingham thats good in ages!

  16. So excited for this! My boyfriend (DJGigabyte) and I have been trying to set up an unofficial tournament in Newcastle for ages but Edinburgh is awesome. And it’s on the same day as the Acoustic Trock Night in Glasgow, so it’ll really be an awesome day!

  17. I love England. I wish I lived there. On one page of the internet I have seen a million things I would move to England for *mope*… Acoustic Trock night, Sopio Tournaments.. Golly, Canada just has.. well nothing.

  18. Monique says:

    Can there be a tournament in America soon?

  19. Emma says:

    i live in Australia, but am traveling around the uk and would love to come to the Edinburgh tournament, but i don’t have anywhere the tickets could be posted in the UK, is there another way i could collect the tickets?

  20. Ellen says:

    Suppose you don’t want to hop on a plan to Dublin, do you? 🙂 It would be great to have it in Ireland.

  21. Emily says:

    Im not allowed to go to the Sopio tournament. Are there any events coming up that mean i’ll be able to meet Alex? (or Charlie or whatever) xxx

  22. Kirsty says:

    Why Not Newcastle it is quite major and i know so many poeple that would love to watch play is it because of lack of time or just not possible ?

  23. Michael says:

    I’m trying to buy a Manchester ticket, but paypal keep refusing my card 😦

  24. Saga says:

    Is there any chans to bye deck one? 🙂

  25. Regan says:

    How can we tell how many tickets are still available for any of the tournaments?

  26. I accidentally gave you my wrong shipping address and have no idea how to get into contact with you to change it.
    Please help.

  27. Lydia says:

    We’re allowed to play if we’re total amateurs right? Me and a friend have been pondering on clubbing together to buy a deck for ages (really expensive :/) but our pondering never quite ended so we’ve decided to come to the tournament instead and hopefully buy decks there too.. We both learn pretty fast (he’s a genius, no lie) so we hoped it’d be okay. And we’ve bought tickets to the London event. Will this be alright?

  28. Jordan says:

    Counting down the days to the London Tournament me and my friend will probs be youngest there. x

  29. Chloe Birmingham says:


  30. kit says:

    what deck will be used?

  31. Lexie says:

    So if I want to come, but have never played before nor do I own a deck, that would be ok? I’d love to learn how to play and meet people (nerdfighters, memebers of the nermie army), though. 😀

  32. Adam says:

    Just wondering if there is a minimum age for the tournaments? Me and my friend are 14 and are wanting to come to the Edinburgh one, but don’t want to turn up and get rejected.

    P.S. Any idea how many tickets are left for the Edinburgh one?

  33. Jordan says:

    Will The Prices For The Cards Be The Same?

  34. TJD says:

    Hello all, I was just wondering concerning these tournaments and general activities concerning Alex and his colleagues. Do you have security or close protection of the group/venues?

  35. Lydia says:

    Apologising in advance for being slightly late tomorrow because of many things, including getting lost. Been checking Google maps/street view and finally managed to find it (the way the streets are laid out in the area confuses street view) but hoping for such good luck tomorrow would be wishful thinking.

  36. Luke says:

    How many Edinburgh tickets are left?!
    (It’s not my payday until Friday! D:)

  37. Sam says:

    I went to the London tournament and I really enjoyed it. Are you going to the tournaments again? I Would love to go to another, but it’s in Edinburgh. Thanks

  38. Sam says:

    Worded that poorly. Will you do more tournamets after Edinburgh?

  39. Reuben Wachs says:

    When will there be another tournament in London, or just another series of tournaments? Just got into it and really want to try it out properly!

  40. Rachel says:

    Are there going to be any tournaments in Edinburgh in 2012? And can people of any ages go?

  41. Hannaah says:

    this year will you be doing any in frimley/frimley green/ surrey/ camberley/ guildford and where in london?

    • Sopio says:

      London will most likely be the same place as before – Canning Town area, not sure about other areas yet, we need to be accesible for others and ourselves 🙂

  42. Evie says:

    Are you going to hold a tournament in Manchester this year? Because I would so love to go, although I’m not very experienced in Sopio 🙂

  43. Emily says:

    When in the summer are you planning on holding the tournaments? I’d love to go but I just need to know because of holidays and stuff 😀
