    Reminder to people to not do a Nova, and update your DS games before you come. Nothing worse than getting hyped for Smash and finding you can't play.

    So, what's the dealio with Friday then, a few drinkies at The Lyceum or something? As I mentioned earlier, I'll be able to meet up with you guys from around 8pm at the earliest.

    Also Overlord, could you drop me a PM with the number for the OLphone? :v:

    Yeah, so my ticket's come through, but it looks like I can't go. Anyone know if there's a way I can give it away, so someone else can go in my place?

    If you had two, I'd snap that up. If anyone else has a spare, make yourself known and I will throw a small bit of money (both of) your way? I need two due to a +1. :(

    Yup, Lyceum's the current plan =P We've not set a start time I think, but it'll have to be some time early evening to give people chance to get into town/get out of work/etc. 8pm doesn't sound too terrible actually, depending on others thoughts on it (or we could just say "when you get there", I'll be in town some time early afternoon).

    Got a postcode for the Lyceum? I'm terrible for directions so that'd help immensely. :v:

    Also 8pm sounds good, we'll see what we can do.
     
  15. I could use that postcode for The Lyceum too. I've taken the day off work to travel down (from Manchester) on the train with my girlfriend, but I'll have no idea where I'm going once I've checked into the Ibis Earls Court.
     
  16. Sorry everyone I've been busy having a life.

    I think I arranged with Marc that he'd sort me out a ticket if I gave him the money. Need to confirm this with him which might be a bit difficult because I don't think I have any other contact for him

    So all being well I'll be there Saturday and Sunday but I'm not paying to stay in London

    As a side note, if anyone needs to contact me, text or Twitter. I barely even look at this forum these days

    I've gothu both:
    The Lyceum Tavern
    354 Strand,
    London
    WC2R 0HS

    8pm sound VERY feasible for me now, I had a look at my route earlier. If not 8pm then certainly not long after.

    I look forward to seeing you guys tomorrow night!

    8pm is it then! Incidentally, here's what the place looks like from the outside:

    [​IMG]

    Note the very distinctive lanterns. Easiest way to get there on foot - go to Charing Cross station, exit to street level, and head off in the direction of the Starbucks on the left side of the road and the McDonalds (and possibly a Five Guys) on the right - stay on the left hand side of the road. About 5 mins or so down you should reach it on the left just before a major road junction - it's just after another Starbucks on the left hand side, and there's a Tesco Express opposite.

    ----

    Right, I'm taking the following list as golden now (outside 1 or 2 small things I'm already aware of):

  20. I just checked into the Ibis. There was a guy cosplaying as Manic in a mascot suit in the lobby. See you all in a bit!
