There will also be major tournaments in PC games like StarCraft 2 and League of Legends, as well as smaller competitions in other titles.

Unfortunately it's all in Norwegian, and I do not have access to my mobile during working hours. Hopefully you can contact the convention centre if you happen to face any problems.
I assume that tickets can be bought at the convention centre, but according to Billetservice.no, prices are listed as follows:'
Ordinary tickets: Protected content
Children age Protected content 79 NOK
Family of 2 adults 2 children: Protected content
Children under the age of 9: FREE ADMISSION
Like mentioned above, these are the prices when bought at Billettservice.no. I do not know if the prices differ when bought directly at the convention. I do know from personal experience at large gaming conventions that, you save a lot of time having tickets ready up front. The ticket queues might be longer than expected.
I will be happy to answer questions on the forum before and after working hours. I am slated to work all three days.
Alright, hope to see some of you gaming enthusiast at the show!
