John Cole is a waste of space (aa you may have noted....) I have no idea if he is making this weekends pint and football, - he has promised to attend, but he has also promised to pay back his debts and start showering weekly...
Will chase him.


Who’ll drive you down if John doesn’t make it? ;-)

We should also have Jerry and John from the Northern wastes.
They will be getting tickets soon.
(because what anyone playing a 4k game wants is a draw with orkyosarus...)


Steve! Don't tell everyone I'm going Ferals. Its not like they'd have guessed from my record. Yes, still wanting to come, and booking up just now.

We are currently sat with 13 players this year.

If we remain with odd numbers I will ref and make it even.

My plan is to run the first two rounds 'seeded' on last years championship positions, so the top six players won't play each other first two rounds. This is in the vain hope that it will make round six less of a juggling act to keep everyone from playing someone more than once :)

There's just the one game on the Friday, and the start and end time is pretty relaxed. Normal start time i think is something like 6pm? If your opponent is there as well you can pretty much get cracking as soon as you want, games should be done by no later than 11:30pm though. Normally i aim to get there by 4:30 myself, with the hope of having the first game done in good time to go get something decent for dinner :)

The UK only voted for Brexit because this tournament is a breach of EU human rights law, and would have been stopped otherwise.....

Sooooo much pain. This is a tourny for people who get a kick out of being punished!

You need to toughen up! :P It's not that much more arduous than the GT, as the Friday game really just counts as a warmup imo :)

Also, who doesn't want to play at 4k? It's generally the only point of the year we normally get a chance to in a tournament setting.

Game one has to finish by 23:59, from memory, so has to start at the latest 20:30.

We are back to even at 14 so I get to play :D

Nice! That must be the best numbers for Britcon since 2011 when we got tickets for free :)

I've gone for a pretty ambitious painting project for this year's Britcon, and i'm happy to report i'm 10 models from completion, so should be done with a week in hand :) It's always nice to finally get a stalled project back on track (albeit somewhat belatedly), and boy do i have a lot of stalled projects! Getting one finally crossed off the list is very satisfying.
