The game continues if a player’s score goes below zero; the player borrows score sticks from an opponent or the referee.

Staying in Copenhagen

Local transportation in Copenhagen:
Closest bus stop is Haraldsgade/Lersø Parkalle right by the venue.
A new metro line has opened; the nearest station is Vibenshus Runddel 600 m from the venue.
Use Journey planner to find an appropriate connection.

You can buy single-ride tickets on train platforms or from the bus driver. The same tickets are valid in both Metro, busses and trains, and as long as you stay within the time limit you can change between these. These are fairly expensive: DKK 24 in the city, DKK 36 between airport and city. The old "klippekort" multiride tickets are no longer available.

Download the mobile app 'Mobilbilletter' for local tickets in and around Copenhagen. Choose English as the language in the app.

A cheaper option may be to buy a Rejsekort Anonymous. This type of travel card does not require an address or any personal details. The card costs DKK 80 (the card price is non-refundable). Please note that you must expect to add DKK 170 to the balance to cover the cost of travel. You can buy Rejsekort Anonymous at the rejsekort vending machines placed at every metro station, at Copenhagen Airport and at Copenhagen Central Station.
More info on Rejsekort ("Travel Card") and how to use it.
