Artists

For the first time ever at a Flesh and Blood event, you'll have the opportunity to meet some of the fantastic artists who help make the game what it is. We are thrilled to announce that artists Federico Musetti (Great Library of Solana, Chane, Bound by Shadow, Ursur, the Soul Reaper and more!) and Mihail Spil-Haufter (Shiyana, Diamond Gemini, New Horizon, Vestige of Sol and more!) will be in the Artists' Alley at the event!

This is your chance to meet the artists in person. They'll be bringing prints of a range of their work, and we've arranged for a special set of artist proof cards to be available for them to have on the booth featuring key pieces of art they've don for the game. Or if you're in the mood, just stop past and say hello!

Travel Guide

It's always nice to have someone local to introduce you to a new city, and in the Netherlands we're lucky to have local content creators The FAB Five!

FAB Five Logo

They've been kind enough to write up a guide to the city covering accommodation, food, transport and (most importantly) where to pick up your last minute FAB singles! Check out their city guide here: Calling Utrecht - Travel Guide 101.

Who's Coming?

Worldwide content creator superstar Pleasant Kenobi will be in attendance. He'll be slinging cards all weekend long, and if we're lucky we might even get him on the mic for a round or two of coverage! From Germany, we'll be seeing almost the entire Top 8 from the German national championships in attendance to take a shot at the Calling title. And from France we have card game connoisseur Pierre Canali from L'Œil d'Ophidia (Eye of Ophidia) who will be hitting the tables all weekend, alongside French Nationals Top 8 finisher Pierre Dagen.

We'd love to see you there as well. Utrecht is our chance to say thank you to all of you in the European community for the love and support you've shown for Flesh and Blood in the year since it launched on the continent. We're looking forward to a big turnout, and seeing who will take the title of inaugural European Calling Champion!
