    Re: Playstuff 10 - Meetup?

    I have had a quick look and there is a YHA hostel that is around 25 per person per night or AirBnBs which are slightly more expensive (maybe 50 per person per night).

    If we have 11 people needing accommodation (going by the doodle) then the hostel might be the best option. The downside is there is no real private space for gaming etc (might need to use Jeeva's place for that).

    If you want I can get a shared spread sheet going for travel an accommodation plans?

    Re: Playstuff 10 - Meetup?

    I had a look around and yeah there are places for 45/50 a night based on housing the suggested number of people in them.... I have definitely booked self catering stuff before and had people stay on couches etc to make it a bit cheaper.

    Also I dont mind sleeping places which are not a bed if Jeeva wants to house folk but no pressure obvs, don't feel obligated .

    Re: Playstuff 10 - Meetup?

    I am more inclined to take the train than drive, as it's about the same amount of time either way but means I can have a drink and relax on the way there/back. My likely travel plans on the way down will be one of these, depending on whether I can get away from work a little early or not:

    On the way back up on Sunday it looks like I have options roughly once an hour so can go on any of those that get me back at a semi-reasonable time really:

    Happy to travel with anyone and everyone on any leg of the above.

    In terms of accommodation I am happy to AirBNB or hostel, easy either way.

    I would look at flights to Luton or Stansted. They're about 60 return and much faster. Then you're only 30 miles from Cambridge.

    Good shout, Stansted looks like the winner as it seems like a bit of a pain in the hoop to get from Luton to Cambridge, whereas there's a train direct from Stansted Airport. Plus the flight is about 24 return on Ryanair. Sorry environment! Trains have let you down.

    Me and Char have sorted ourselves a place, lovely little number on the corner of Parker's Piece. We can taxi to and from so no worries on that front.

    Annoyingly my family has decided to do a meet up visit on the 6th now so I won’t be able to make it in person hopefully I’ll still be able to get online at times though. Sorry guys.

    Right, we've booked a place on City Road about half a mile from the city center from Friday to Sunday.

    Looking forward to seeing you all there!

    Imma not really able to commit to a bnb at all (both due to lack of funds and possibility of last minute "Oh crap, I can't make it").

    So Jeeva, about those futons...

    Re: Playstuff 10 - Meetup?

    I have two one man futons, a decent couch, a hammock (for the adventurous sea-dog), a spare double mattress. Maybe a blow up mattress too? I should probably count how many people there are, too!

    Okay, so:

    City Road Place: almightybob, decepticreep, Vox, thorgasm
    Parkers Piece Place: Post Script, Char
    Gwydir Street (oh man, the pubs): Seric

    My house so far (5/6-9 capacity): Ehdoo, Sero, Equi, Boylee, Honsou

    Unknown: Launch, and others who are unsure currently (but will hopefully make it!)

    All good so far! Did I miss anyone who was sure?

    I'm not 100% on my transport choice at the moment. Do I ride down on the motorbike or faff about public transport style.

    As for where to stay - I'll camp in a garden if need be.

    Where is Jeeva's place? Near where we are all staying?

    I am driving up from London with Thorgasm so I can bring loadsa board games

    There were also a few pubs I wanted to check out: The Smokeworks, the Emperor, the old bicycle shop and the pint shop

    Re: Playstuff 10 - Meetup?

    Interesting choices! We can definitely get to them.

    My place is roughly here:
    PSPuntMap.png

    (OK, this map got more detailed very quickly because I took a really odd snippet of map)
    I'm a twenty minute stroll from most of those places, and we even have amenities like Uber and whatnot.

    Happily, this map is also accurate:
