Yay, Tino. However you don't need to pay for the room until you are there, they don't even take a deposit at this point.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I remember that from last time but not sure I can justify that much money this time. Especially as I wouldn't be in the Palace. If I'm not going to be in the same hotel then I think I should find a far cheaper option. That would free up more funds for the bar and shopping :D

Mostly, the bar! ;)
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

:D Gonna be a bit of a reunion then!

I'm going to mail Eelco this weekend to see if he wants The Dicebox again and another evening of Strangely Fascinating perhaps - it would be good to have a longer run at it this time so we're more organised ;) I'll also have the housemate along this time so I'll have a personal gopher for everything :P

The Dicebox?
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.

A room dedicated to gaming, this is where I was introduced to Guards Guards (game not the book). Which is great fun

I did buy guards guards at the last con and I will be bringing it along this time, so if anyone on here fancies a game we can arrange nearer the time :)

Housemate knows the deal Bouncy - and he's the one who can't be trusted with plastic in the vendors room so he needs supervising... :P

Yeah Square - all Discworld related board gaming goes on in The Dicebox plus Disc-themed Cripple Mr. Onion which is cards as we know them but with fan-art on 'em - see this topic in the Games Forum. This time around we'll have alternative deck to play with as described in Witches Abroad with an another trump card suit based on the Caroc major arcana according to Turtle Recall (with 8 x 12 card minor suits of Turtles, Elephants, Crowns, Coins, Octograms, Swords, Cups and Sceptres/Wands all with 4 court cards - an extra Lord) :lol:

Plenty of time factored in for bar propping ;)
