    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 .

    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.

    Suitcase with one pair of underwear, an eraser for the skidmarks and a fuckton of boardgames.
