Tomas Thrainsson founded the Wild Vikings Team in October 2019. Orsito was appointed as a second team leader a couple of months later. The heart and soul of the team is Tomas' Twitch stream: Please follow him on Twitch to get a stream notification!

Normal stream schedule is:

Sundays from 20:00 (GMT+1) Simul night (invites to the team members will be sent a half an hour before the start).
Mondays from 20:00 (GMT+1) where the focus is studying and analysis of simul games from the Sunday night
Tuesdays 20:00 (GMT+1) are Guess-The-Move nights
Wednesdays are bonus nights if Tomas doesn't have OTB games
Thursdays are also bonus nights if Tomas doesn't have band practice
Friday evenings at 20:00 (GMT +1) Study or tournament night, alternating between focus on Wild Vikings and Little Big Pawn from the dark side.
Saturday night is general messing around with various activities, viewer challenges, impromptu tournaments or something different.

The Wild Vikings team is a place to come and have fun, play longer games and enjoy chess life. And above all else, have fun and respect each other. We're all here for the same reason: MAYHEM :D
