    Also, probably a good time to ask some questions:

    • Anyone bringing a PS4 / Xbox etc for games?
    • Anyone bringing board games?
    • Anyone else bringing a laptop for lan games
    I plan to bring the ludicrously long HDMI cable again and a ludicrous cable for my phone. Bringing a laptop and HDD full of stuff. Thinking i might bring my multi-region BD player too if people want to watch stuff?

    I'd love to watch stuff please seeing as I can't do any board games so it's where I may feel like I have nothing to do.

    I'm just going to bring my sh*t laptop or sh*t tablet along with my Brothers Vita. I have naff all decent Tech. Gonna bring a book too.

    I'm gonna bring some playing cards for any who want to risk my drinking game of death.

    I need this weekend now. I need distraction and somewhere pretty and to be temporarily removed from my life atm.

    F*****ck, just read 2017's thread and can see we're at the same place where everyone complained it was too warm.

    Do we know how to remedy that now should it be the same? Work the heating out etc?

    It wasn't too bad really, just when the heating was on full blast and you were under the duvet (which was incredibly warm)

    I'll also bring my crappy work laptop and that's about it, as I don't own any mobile devices of note (a dead kindle being the only one really).

    I'll bring very little. iPad for jackbox is a must. I have my mums old laptop which I doubt can play any games, but I'll bring it anyway I guess.

    I'm all for board games and require my yearly catan salt fest.

    Seeing as none of you appreciated the masterpiece that is Garzey's Wing, this year I'll be bringing some of my non-ironic most favourite anime series of all time. Also Miracle Tunes. Also Pages From Ceefax.

    For what it's worth, I don't recall experiencing any uncomfortable temperatures.

    After the jealousy of last year would love to do some LAN gaming but the hardware is a bit of an issue. Can you hook up macbooks with windows laptops these days? I might be able to nick my brothers old one for the weekend depending on its condition....

    Otherwise will probably have my Switch, poss Vita if theres any decent multiplayer going on and a game or too. Have a nerdy quizz game I bought over Xmas that could be a laugh (especially if paried with gin....)

    Didnt some windows not open though? :O

    What's LAN gaming? I'd just be glad to watch stuff or do stuff when there's board games and things occurring I cant involve myself in.

    Didn't have any issues with how warm the house got last year. My bedroom was on the groundfloor.

    I'll be bringing along my PS4 along with DragonBall FighterZ, Undernight in Birth, Blazblue Central Fiction.
    I'll also have a few other games on there as well

    FOOD PLANS

    Right, to confirm.
    1. I am not catering for evening meals. We have a lot of takeaways and other facilities near by. I suggest that we split into groups and sort ourselves out. Failing that Just Eat and other takaways also work.
    2. I have catered for lunches and breakfasts. Basic tea, coffee and soft drinks.
    Total so far is £147.

    At the current state, I should be giving money back to people, which i'll give in Cash on the day which will help with meals etc :)

    Maybe add:

    Kenco Smooth 200g - £5 (Yep, I notice we have some Nescafe already on the list, just a preference as I'm not a huge fan of strong coffee, always willing to bring my own tbh)
