Fonske is the name of the statue of the book-reading, beer-spilling student at the Rector De Somerplein in the city of Leuven. Following the example of the ‘Brugse Zotten’, Fonske challenges backgammon clubs in Belgium to show what they are worth and compete for a ‘Fonske surprise’, in addition to eternal fame and glory.
Cool, fun, and tasty prizes!
