I thought I'd start a new thread as it is getting close!

I'm going to head up there early on Friday morning. My plan is to leave home around 8 ish. I will probably pay for 3 days parking at the NEC as my hotel (Premier Inn) charges anyway. Last year you had to pay for all 3 days in advance, I made the mistake of paying for 1 day and they wouldn't let me 'upgrade' to a 3 day ticket.

Last year Nick, Rob, Pete & myself met up as we piled into the main expo hall. So it would be good to exchange numbers or maybe set up a Facebook Messenger group so we can all communicate easily.

For those in outlying hotels I don't mind driving them back at the end of the day if they want to drink. Drinking and gaming doesn't mix too well with me.

Thoughts?

Guy, if you do three day parking can you leave it there overnight?

A few of us are in Solihull but as check in isn't until 2pm I'm thinking of doing it on the Friday night and sharing an uber back n forth each day (about a tenner each way split by four isn't much)

Who's actually going?

I know of you, me, David, mark and gali

Hey

I'll be there from Friday to Sunday, I reckon I should be there early on Friday about 9ish. I have your number Guy but happy to setup a messenger group.

I'm staying at the Genting Hotel this year and parking in the same parking area as you.

I'm properly looking forward to a weekend of games and food!

Me and Markie will be there from Thursday evening. Changed plans when we found out we'll have to drive off early Sunday morning So we thought we'd better make sure we take full advantage of Friday and Saturday.

As far as I know we have to pick up our tickets there on Friday (no idea why they don't mail them to people in advance) so we'll probably be there for doors opening.

Sharing a uber sounds good, we were just talking about that today actually, we'll probably get one in the morning - I'm assuming no one else will be there that early Friday morning?

Yeah. You pick up tickets in a separate queue.

Yes, those 2 instantly caught my eye. I'd be very happy to try the expansion for quadropolis and it Unfair was free then I'd be happy to try that as well.

It turned into a "can't win it if you're not here" kind of thing. (Sadface: )
