FAQ
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
United Kingdom

“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).
