Hello to you all.

I'm planning to go to the Spiel'16 at Essen in October with my gaming group, but some of our members are handicapped. They ask for a "valid certificate" before entering, but what is accepted as a French valid certificate ? There is no European certificate for handicapped people. One will travel in a wheelchair but doesn't own a special authorisation in parking lots, and another has a reduced mobility (his handicap is invisible though it is rated at 80%) and has no authorisation whatsoever - but both have what we call "invalidity cards".

What would you do in my place ? Would you pay for "discount" tickets for my two handicapped friends or would you prefer to lay low in case the certificates are not what were expected ?

Thanks in advance.

I'm very sure that your friend in the wheelchair won't have a problem and I also think that French invalidity cards will be enough.

To be on the safe side, you may contact the Merz Verlag via their website (only in German and English - they should have it in Dutch and French as well, concerning the high numbers of visitors from Benelux and France shake).

In general they should accept a handicapped certificate from anywhere . . . as long as they can figure out that it is valid.

Ciao

Martin

Website contacted and quick answer provided : the French invalidity card is considered as a valid certificate for buying a ticket at a reduced price !

May that be helpful to my fellow French gamers.
And many thanks again to Christian and Martin for their help !
