When Keyforge was released in 2018, my husband as there for it. We bought packs the first day and, despite not being able to find a store in our area offering organized play, Matthew dived head first into the game. So I wasn’t at all surprised when he started dropping mention of attending Keyforge’s Vault Tour this summer, even when he went so far as to say “well, I signed up for the Vault Tour in Germany, and if we can’t go it’s not a lot of money wasted…”
And the trip to Nürnberg, Germany for their Vault Tour was planned. One of the best parts about my job working remotely is that when I travel, my work comes with me. While Matthew played his Keyforge games, I explored old-town Nürnberg and jumped onto our hotel WiFi for my EST core work hours.
We did a few tours (and I visited many more museums) that aren’t pictured here, though I intentionally steered clear of Nuremberg’s Nazi history. Matthew came in at the top 30 of his Keyforge Vault Tournament event, we both met our pretzel quota for the year, and I loved every single old brick building I came across. I think I saw enough of the town that I don’t need to visit again, but the experience has me excited to see more of Germany, and of Bavaria in particular.
