Location Information:
General: The 2 Klaveren is a true old school location where Magic has been played since the mid 90’s. There are still weekly Magic tournaments organised and many well known Dutch Magic players have mastered their skills here.
Website: http://www.2-klaveren.nl
Drinks: All the usual, including alcoholic beverages. You are not allowed to bring your own drinks inside.
Food: A sandwich, simple bite, salad, pancakes or a small dish, everything is available for affordable prices. You are not allowed to bring your own food inside.
Smoking: There is a separate smoking area inside, most people smoke outside.
Parking: Parking is never cheap in Amsterdam. Parking to the west of the “kostverlorenvaart” in “De Baarsjes” is the cheapest option available. Look for “Amsterdam – Geuzenkade, #14189”, check this picture for an overview (it’s now 4,50/hour!). If you are on the wrong side of the water it’s even more expensive, so please pay attention. You can also park for free (during the weekend) at Sloterdijk station and take Tram 19 (15 minutes), look for “Amsterdam – Piarcoplein, #18216”. Check this picture to find the correct parking lot.
Public Transportation: Reachable by multiple tramlines from any train station or other location in Amsterdam.

Started playing in 1995 when Ice Age was launched and quit playing in 1999 since I didn't like the fast rotation of cards. When I heard about Old School Magic in 2017 I returned to the scene and now I'm spending way to much time on Magic, loving it all the way!
