They are until you factor in shipping.

Find people going on holiday to Orlando, convince them to drive a few miles north to Cool Stuff Inc., then have them collect and personally deliver your pre-ordered boxes of fun.

Are you going to Orlando?

"convince" you to go to Cool Stuff Inc.???

I had to time my asking to fit in when you stopped banging on about it long enough to draw a breath! :-p

Plus it was only one box - you stiffed me on the other, remember? Very Happy

Just to be clear, if you were to pilot something like that anywhere near me I would comprehensively reconfigure it... Wink

Stiffed you? Stiffed you?

Your original order was fulfilled in full (with free international shipping I might add!)
The fact you tried to amend your order after the order had been picked and had entered the shipping stage of the process is not my fault .

Oh, and it was one VERY HEAVY box! Smile

Oh stop moaning, I saved you the most expensive part of shipping by taking a job and the same shitty company you worked at so you could give me it in the office :-p

Plus, at most my order was at the packing stage, barely even past picking!

I think DaveB and I are staying at the Hilton too, though I can't be sure... I just gave Dave my money and he took care of the rest... I may be sleeping in the car park.

And paid me ~2-3 boardgames for the privilege of sleeping in said car park Smile

Gary and I are in the Hilton this year. Just for the convenience. We stayed at the ramada encore last year, which was way cheaper. It's in walking distance though, has parking and the room was clean and modern so i'd recommend it.

Also got entry tickets now as well as my entry to the x-wing national championships (cripes!).

Also the Hilton, again for convenience. Being able to dump purchases during the day is a real bonus.

I don't know why I was kidding myself....I will of course be going. I'll just be going on the Saturday to make the odd purchase and overdose on gaming. I'm happy to drive down if anyone needs a lift there/back that day?

Eclipse in Birmingham

Post  mikew on Sun 05 Apr 2015, 22:11

Hi All. Me, Kelly Dodds and Simon Kenny are going to UK Game Expo Friday to Sunday and really fancy organising a 9-player game of Eclipse. Anyone else from the club going to be in Brum and keen to play this fantastic game? Simon has all the expansions and extra bits.
