Don't forget to book for Manorcon by the end of the month if you want to pay the discounted price. This year it is at Chamberlain Hall, Birmingham University, 2pm Friday 20th July - 2pm Monday 23rd July 2001. I will certainly be going, Nick and Dave may well be getting a lift up in my car, but there is room for one more. I have lost count of the number of times I have attended, and I always have a great time, coming home totally gamed out and with a stack of titles I don't really need from the excellent second-hand games sale. It's not just about Diplomacy, there will be about 300 nimrods there and plenty of opportunities to play almost any sort of game - 18XX, Civilization, the latest German games, Titan, croquet.....Don't miss out!
