What about transport?
As people come from everywhere in the country, we have decided not to organize a shared transport to UK EXPO. If you arrive by plane you can either book to Birmingham and from here there is a train that runs to Birmingham New Street station or you can book to London and take a train and/or a bus to Birmingham.
It’s possible to coordinate and get input on cheap travel via our Facebook event. If you find cheap flights, please share them.
The Bastard Tour to Birmingham is not a carefully planned scouting trip where we all go hand in hand together. Bastard Café is (apart from being a place where you can play games), also a loosely connected community of people with the same passion for board games – we might create the framework, but you create the experiences. This tour is similarly organized. This means that you can select what you wish to participate in, and nobody expects that you must participate in all common meals etc. Choose what you like and go with the flow.
The UK GAME EXPO itself opens on Friday the 1st June 2017 and closes on Sunday the 3rd June 2017. We arrive a day before in Birmingham to chill with some games and be ready and rested for the next day.
The hotel is
Comfort Inn, Birmingham
Station Street, City Centre
Birmingham B5 4DY
We have booked 8 rooms with two single beds. When we’ve booked all these rooms, the tour is full.
– You can chose in the sign up if you want to share the room with a particular person.
– Free wifi at the hotel is included in the ticket.
“The Bastard Pub Crawl”:
Thursday evening we will start visiting Geek Retreat (one of Birmingham’s board games cafés) and then we will explore the pubs of Birmingham and have a taste of what they can offer. Bring a small game or two in your pocket (you pay for your own drinks). We might grab a snack on the way.
“The Bastard Dinner”:
Saturday evening you have the opportunity to participate in our large Bastard Dinner which will take place at a yet unknown place in Birmingham. It will be epic. Select this if you want to participate, so we know about how many seats we have to reserve (food and drinks are paid for separately).
“The Bastard SMS News Service” (included in the ticket):
Sign up for updates with news, events, good “finds” at the fair and other info we find relevant.
All prices incl. Danish VAT and any possible profit from the tour go to buy shitloads of new games for the Bastard Café collection.
