BoB 5!

BoB 5!

To start of Block 5, again, there is a Block Opening Drink. This time it’s all about dyslectic pi-day, since the date is 4-13 (and not 3-14). However, nothing actually will be done with this theme, but there will be three games. The winner of these games will be able to call him/herself ‘Blockbuster’ of block 5, meaning that a large trophy will stand in the common room with your name next to it for the whole of block 5! Be there, and be prepared for some competition!

See ya!

Incognito Dinner!

Incognito Dinner!

It is a tradition (and a must) to host a dinner every year at de Twee Heeren. This means that also this year, we have to believe it. We’re getting a three course dinner for 25 euros (yes, it’s expensive, but we couldn’t get them to make dinner for less…), and the menu will be available soon. We hope to see you there to have a nice evening with us. (it’s also possible to only eat the main course, then you’ll pay 15 euros.)

See Ya!

Maastrichter BeerTasting 2011

Our host will tell a funny, interesting, strange or very unusual story about each beer and is able to find a beer specific to your requests. You will be surprised!

Everyone who wants to join, can join. We’ll play some matches against each other for the evening. The costs will be less than 5 euros and depending on how many people are coming.

We hope to see you there!

Mens / Ladies Night!

BoB4 2010-2011

For the guys and the girls of DKE two special nights are arranged. It will be at the same night, February 23, and it will be on the same time!

At 23:00 we shall come back together and go ‘out’ with the people who want to! Costs and the program will be announced in due time. Please subscribe at

Hope to see you there!

Table Soccer Tournament!

YES INDEED! LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! It is that time again!

The Official Incognito Table Soccer Tournament 2011 is about to commence!

Every year Incognito organises a table soccer tournament. As always it will take place in the first 2 weeks of the 3rd block. This time the games will be played between Monday 10 and Friday 21 January 2011.

There will be a singles and a doubles division. You are allowed to participate in both divisions if you feel you can handle the pressure. The playing schedule and rulebook will be mailed to every competing team before the tournament starts.

If you want to join this great event, please send an email before January 8th to with the subject LetsPlaySomeSoccer!. The email should contain your name(s), your teamname and your teamlogo!! (Yes, you need a logo, if you suck at photoshop, just draw a stick figure or something…)

Some basic rules to give you an impression of the games:
10 minutes total. At 5 minutes you switch sides. The team with the most goals after this time period wins. If it is a draw, the game will become golden goal (scoring = winning). Stalling is not allowed, so you have to keep playing, even if you’re ahead by one point.

Lets get that competition started 🙂

Games Night!

On Wednesday 8th of December an oldfashioned night of board games with Incognito will take place. Starting at 18:00 with some food (it’s discusses at the scene what’s on the menu), we’ll have a nice evening full of board games.

If you have nice board games of your own, feel free to bring them!

The costs of the night will be 2,50 (excluding dinner). With this you’ll get drinks (beer or something) and chips.

Hope to see you all there!


Poster removed due to uncertainty about copyright.

Sinterklaas is an ancient Dutch tradition. Children believe that an old saint, named Sinterklaas, is real and has a lot of black helpers. Sinterklaas and his helpers, Zwarte Pieten, walk on the roofs of houses, going through the chimney and putting gifts in every kid’s shoe. These shoes are placed by the fireplace the night before, with some treats for Sinterklaas’ horse and a drawing for Sinterklaas.

In our common room, we have a fireplace so we want to find out if Sinterklaas will put something in our shoes the night of December 5th!

If you want to join, please send an email before November 28th to with the subject Sinterklaas. You’ll get an email back with information about when and how you can place your shoe. You don’t have to be present there at December 5th, you just get to set your shoe, wait the weekend and hopefully find a gift in there the Monday! It will cost you 2,50 and you have to make a drawing or poem to put in your shoe for Sinterklaas!

Kind regards
‘The Helping Sinterklaas’

Kafé: Best-reply search

Two times a year, Incognito hosts a kafé. This is an evening where a PHD-student or professor is coming to a café to tell about his research field. This is an extension on what you learn in the study and examples of previous kafé’s are an evening about GO, an evening about heart-research and many more.

This time, on November 25th at 20.00, Maarten Schadd will talk about ‘Best-reply search’.
The Kafé will be hosted on the second floor of the Twee Heeren, which you can access by the staircase behind the door on the right side of the building upon entering.
A google map link for convenience!

The abstract of his research is given below.

We hope to see you there!

This article proposes a new algorithm, called Best-Reply Search (BRS), for deterministic multi-player games with perfect information. In BRS, only the opponent with the strongest counter move is allowed to make a move. More turns of the root player can be searched resulting in long-term planning. We test BRS in the games of Chinese Checkers, Focus and Rolit. In all games, BRS is superiour to the max^n algorithm. We show that BRS also outperforms paranoid in Chinese Checkers and Focus. In Rolit, BRS is on equal footing with paranoid. We conclude that BRS is a promising search method for deterministic multi-player games with perfect information.

BOB 2 : Welcome the new board!

At Wednesday November 10th, 20:00 in the Twee Heeren will be the second BOB!
The BOB itself will be hosted on the second floor of the building, which you can access by the staircase behind the door on the right side of the building upon entering.
And remember: The first two kegs are free!!

Apen Kooien

Apenkooien 2010

Last year, some of the Incognito members tried something new. Not just sitting in front of a computer for a night, but actually go to a gym and play a fun game. In Dutch, it’s called ‘Apenkooien’. It is a game of tag where it is not allowed to touch the floor. It takes place in a gym, which is filled with playground equipment. You can use this equipment to get from one place to another. There are two or more taggers, who work together to eliminate the rest as quickly as possible by tagging them or making them touch the floor.

For last years’ pictures, view!/album.php?aid=2037092&id=1063110524

If you would like to join, please send an email to
The event will take place at October 6th, at 20:00.
It’ll cost 3 euros for Incognito-members and 5 euros for non-members.

Sportzaal Boschpoort, Meutestraat 100, 6219 BL Maastricht.

After this exhausting activity, we will go to cafe ‘de Twee Heeren’ with everyone who would like to join 🙂

We hope to see you all there!

BOB 1 : Tropical!

Due to the bad weather, BOB1 and the BBQ had to be canceled last Wednesday.
The BBQ will not be hosted this start of the year anymore, but of course, you can’t start a block correctly without a Block Opening Drink.

Therefore, Wednesday 22nd of September, 20:00 in the Twee Heeren will be the first BOB of the new academic year!
The BOB itself will be hosted on the second floor of the building, which you can access by the staircase behind the door on the right side of the building upon entering.
