When you're a company of four, a great opportunity arises: you can play a game of Manille! Whaaat?? Yes, this is the first thing that pops in mind when in West-Flanders four people meet up. Western-Belgium and French-Flanders are the only region in the world where Manille is by far the most popular card game. And guess what: our Extremis headquarters are based exactly in the middle of this region, somewhere near the border between Belgium and France.
This card game is cultural heritage. Every Sunday morning after church, our grandfathers and grandmothers went to play manille. Manille tournaments are organised at the smallest village bar, meeting center or parish hall. The prizes: chickens, currant bread, sausages, or soap. No kidding.
