    We've already got this going in the Discord chat with a number of people booking their hotel and planning how to get there, so thought we needed a thread.

    Could do with some ideas for the afternoon activity, otherwise we'll be drunk be early evening.

    Room booked, see if I can actually make it this time. As for an afternoon activity how about a nap?

    A room you escape from... :roflmao:

    They're like the beginning of the original Saw movie.
    You've got to work out how to escape.
    Normally there's a time limit & different themed rooms depending on the place

    That could work pretty well. Team of 6 is only £15 each.

    I need to make list of who is coming, I've forgot.

    Also, if you keep an eye on social media and places like Groupon you can regularly get deals which give you a discount.

    I've done quite a few, they are good fun and get the grey matter working!

    Whilst I’m not gaming, I still enjoy a good lash up, so am up for this but as convened to Baz - I have some juggling to do to make it happen as I have a ticket to see Tears For Fears on the evening in Bham with a couple of mates but as I’m also seeing them the following Tuesday in Liverpool with the Mrs, I will try and flog my Sat ticket.

    Anyway - my suggestion for the Saturday afternoon would be to catch the Severn Valley Railway from Bewdley to Bridgnorth. Takes about 50 mins each way, nice scenery and you can drink on the train. Bridgnorth is another lovely Georgian town on the River Severn.

    Suggest catch 1pm train, have 3 hours in Bridgnorth, back to Bewdley for 6, killer pool and beers until 9:30 followed by Baz eating Chicken Naga & Green Chilis

    Ha Ha... I was only joking. I'm trying to get the time authorised with the missus so I'll be up for whatever.

    The escape room stuff sounds fun though.

    As of this year I will no longer be excluded from the over 50 swim session at my local pool and will be able to join the walking football team so actually a gentle trip on a steam train is about as much excitement as I can manage these days.

    An escape room would be ok as well I guess.
