MAS is having a promo now till end March.. cheap tickets to Paris and London for RM2,500 two-way. These are their normal flights with 30 kg baggage allowance (important if you are buying games). You need to book your tix before end March. Then there's also MATTA Fair ongoing now.



Alternative there's always Emirates Air.

I will be staying at Hotel Kessing from the 23/10 to 28/10. Rate is pretty reasonable at EUR310 for the whole duration.



Most prob booking MAS from the 22/10 (arrives 23/10 morning) to 28/10 (leaving noon) from Frankfurt.

We'll be in Paris from 18/10 (Fri) and going over to Essen on Wed 23/10. In Essen we are staying at Movenpick this time around (last yr was Intercity - gosh, reminds me my photos and blog report long outstanding!) from 23/10 to 28/10. Movenpick's about EU470 for this 5 nights.

Hmm... if your flight leaves noon from Frankfurt, you need to check out early on 28/10 to get the train to Frankfurt. So we'll be your "mules" for Monday shipping I suppose. http://community.boardgamecafe.net/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':P' />

Make sure to wave to the BGG live feed camera while they're demoing a game. I'll be watching as usual and probably be envious when I see any of you. :P


 


Good luck with the trip!

Games list preparation is the least of our worries... too many good (presumably) new games this year. Worry is how much it'll cost to ship them back. :P

The "prep" part is not your worry. The money part is...  hahaha
