Over the years Elishia Retief has earned:

2014 Wargamer of the Year
2015 Mind Sports Person of the Year
City of Johannesburg Regional Colours,
Gauteng Provincial Colours,
South African National Colours, and
Protea Colours.

However, 2017 saw Elishia play in the  North west Championships for the first time in her gaming career. Studying ‘just up the road’ at North West University – Potchefstroom – Elishia made the effort to trek out to Klerksdorp to demonstrate her skill.

Her usual enthusiasm and effervescent personality was welcome at the championships.

At MSSA’s 21st North West Championships held at Curro Klerksdorp, Elishia once again took the title.

Since Elishia is now resident in North West, Elishia has now added North West Colours to her many other awards.
