Thirsty Meeples visit on Sun 25th Feb
« on: February 12, 2018, 02:04:48 PM »
Hi folks.

I just wanted to let you know that Decar and I are meeting at Thirsty Meeples in Oxford next Sunday 25th Feb at 12pm. If you would like to spend the afternoon gaming with us then that would be great. I suspect we'll no doubt play Carc (apparently it's regarded as compulsory for a meet up with other forum members), but we're planning on trying some other games too from their extensive library.

However, because weekends are particularly busy, booking is an absolute must. With this in mind, please can you let me know by midday this Friday if you'll definitely join us (and how long for) so I can try and book a suitable table. A deposit is required to secure the table hence needing to know confirmed numbers. Prices are £6 for 3 hours, although this is reduced slightly if you buy food / drink, see http://www.thirstymeeples.co.uk/howitworks for details and we're likely to stay there for about 6 hours.

For those intending to drive, I found the park and ride sites (of which there are quite a few around the edge of the city, see https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/cms/content/park-and-ride-locations) very handy. This was a lot cheaper than parking in town at only £2 for the day, with bus fare on top if necessary. Seacourt was handy for me and was only 1.5 miles walk from Thirsty Meeples.

Any questions, please just ask.

Cheers,
Rich.

Nice one Rich_the_fish!

Is the park and ride really only 1.5miles?  It felt much much further, I'd say the bus was compulsory!

Depending on time and weather, I'm happy to walk but make sure you wave if you go past on the bus!

Glad there might be a few of us meeting up.

I can't make this one, I'm afraid; but if anyone's ever visiting Sheffield, I can't recommend https://www.treehousesheffield.com/ highly enough. Great staff, food & selection of games :(y)

I was in Sheffield 2 weeks ago.  I will let you know next time and we can meet up.

No worries, glad you can join us and looking forward to meeting you. How long are you planning on being there - shall I book for 12-6pm (i.e. 2x3hr sessions)? Reason I ask is because I'll need to pay a deposit.

Just missed the time, sorry!
It was a relatively nominal deadline but I wanted to ring them before the weekend.

Great to hear you're joining us Willem!

Do you have any games we want to play (Other than Carcassonne :D)

Haha, tbh, we almost always play carcassonne, or a spin off for it.
I like Isle of Skye, and Love Letter to  ;D
Do I need to bring anything? Or will they have enough there?
