Do we have both cottages, Curio? I'd love to play but option 2 is only really viable if we can leave it set up in cottage #2

I certainly hope so, it's where I plan on sleeping! :D

Oh, in btw, for the whole weekend. Sorry it took me a while, I had to get over the shock of both the cottage and meat up being organised in the first half of February!! :DD

Super early to be thinking about this shit, but dropping it here so I don't forget.

I'm more than happy to bring along Gloomhaven if folks want to see it in action, but there are two ways to play the game.
1) Casual mode, pick a character, run a one time only scenario, have fun, repeat.
2) Campaign mode, create a character, level up, get loot, do events in the town, then head to the scenario and fuck shit up, repeat.

It actually works really well for mixed level characters in the same scenario, and a party/campaign can be made up of up to 17 different characters (only 4 can quest at the same time though).

Would folks be interested in playing Gloomhaven? If so, would you be interested in option 1 or option 2? Option 1 would be easier, but for option 2 we could leave it setup at the end of a table for the weekend and rattle through quite a few scenarios of a campaign with folks dropping in and out, which might be fun.

I'd love to have a go of this. :)

Hola.

After discussions with a number of people, I have cancelled our booking of the cottage for this year. Whilst this does involve missing out on arguably the best weekend of the year, having a ton of households from all over the country descend to meet together in the middle seems something of a recipe for disaster.

There was no deposit, so we’re not out of pocket at all, and we can just organise another one for when the plague has lessened a bit.

Curio lists what spirits and mixers (and traditional fruits) he has. We choose how he mixes it.

HE MUST DRINK

Ah, yes. She's had to reduce it from 250 so it will sell ASAP.

I'd love to buy it and rent it out as serviced accommodation like the cottage. Let me kni if anyone wants in. :D

When we were looking at houses in Scotland we had a budget of ~£250k and we could get a four-bed new-build with garage for that in decent areas.

They’re about £350k here in Nottingham and £750k near my folks down south.

Mine, too. I feel weary and worn out at a lot of the memories stuff. At the beginning of this whole thing I got rid of my Timehop app, which usually I love, just because it just made me feel sad.

I suppose one of the advantages of an ex that forbade me from being in pictures does at least mean that there are no "memories" to speak of, prior to leaving him. :DD

@myp I think you can block specific memories around certain events or people? I wouldn’t want to think you were blocking memories of me out for no reason :D

But in seriousness, yes, I think it’s a lovely feature if you don’t have half a lifetime of things that you don’t want to see since you created the account. My account is relatively new, but right now just posts about seeing friends and family make me miss those people a lot, and just the general more care-free, fear-free person I used to be.

But anyway, that’s Covid talk.

One of my favourite cottage memories is when you brought me the magic number of crumpets in bed x x x

I'm getting those on my phone's photo apps too now. I feel sad as well, as for the last decade it's become one of the things I've most looked forward to in any year but grateful for the happy memories and fingers crossed we'll be back next year. I've already got a shortlist of games I want to try out on you lot :)

Is there an ideal number of crumpets? They strike me as one of the foods that can be eaten continually.

I find three is the magic number. No more, no less.

It feels like two is sensible, three is decadent and just perfect if you’re hungry.

Not only am I missing cottage, but I've somehow ended up with my children all weekend even though they should be at their dad's.

It's truly the end of days.

Hey hey hey lovely people.

So, I've said to Curio that I'd be happy to take over organising this year (for some mad reason). So, firstly I need an indication of how many people would be comfortable doing cottage given ~the circumstances~ and secondly, if we can't get it for the usual weekend (we can't, Curio says it's booked throughout October) would the preference be for some time in September or some other time? I will need to find out specifics on available dates for definite though.
