    Re: Playstuff 10 - Meetup?

    So what's the plan for the weekend? We doing board games, punting, pubbing?

    Where? when? what? who? how? why?!

    Looking forward to it!

    Punting is probably out, it will be October after all.

    Depending on the pub, we might be able to mix boardgames and pub.

    I mean, worst case we can go very brief punting and then retire to a pub. I feel I've promised it a little...

    Actually, Halloween punting is quite popular - though that sometimes involves blankets.

    There are a lot of decently board game friendly pubs, with excellent tables.
    (here's a recent one)

    Here's my range of games currently (if anyone wants to save space and worries about bringing doubles):

    Shall we say something like (assuming it's not raining):
    Friday (not everyone has arrived, potentially) -> Wandering round pubs/Cambridge and seeing what's what
    Saturday afternoon -> Attempt punting, otherwise give up and retire to somewhere, chill, chat, game,
    Saturday evening -> Hanging out and being awesome
    Sunday day -> Barbecue / some kind of cooking or curry or something (weather dependent, I guess), chill, chat, game

    and bob, if you take one of your travel options that take you to Stevenage or Luton, I don't recommend leaving the station/airport at either of them. They are unpleasant places and we do not go there.

    You may find that this site gives some help: https://www.rome2rio.com

    The prices are usually off, but I sometimes use it to help highlight possible routes.

    Edit: Actually...the times are off as well...perhaps I shouldn't suggest it.

    According to the trainline it takes 30 minutes on a cross country train. Runs every hour at about twenty past the hour and is about 8.

    Otherwise you can change at bishops Stortford but it takes a bit longer.

    I've got Stansted to Cambridge (or vice versa) a half dozen times this year; it's always been great, other than them putting it on the furthest possible platform at Stansted. Not much worry about booking in advance, I've found - always just rocked up and generally find seats.

    Worth grabbing a return at a pricey 11, I'd say.

    Aiming to arrive between 13:00-16:00 - I'm driving and lazy so....

    Probably worth setting up a Telegram group or something?

    Anyone I don't already have contacts for, PM me your Telegram username.
