Re: Blackpool meetup in June-August 2019?

It is done! The hotel I was aiming for had all their rooms bought out during the night. I thought it was therefore best to book something now, so I did. Unfortunately, it's a few pounds more than I had originally suggested (£140 per room for two nights). The rooms are twins. Having learned from las...

Re: Blackpool meetup in June-August 2019?

Okay, I've begun the hotel search and I've found one that can accommodate us all (twin bedrooms) at about £36 £30 per person, per night (excluding breakfast).

Re: Blackpool meetup in June-August 2019?

IT IS DONE. The votes are in and have been counted, and the requested day is: 9-11 August . This was quite a popular date, and has the potential to be one of our bigger meetups, which is very exciting. I will have a look at accommodation costs and see what we can get. If you didn't vote, or didn't v...

Re: Blackpool meetup in June-August 2019?

Oh yes, lots and lots of votes now.

In fact, I'm going to be closing this in a couple of days from now. So if you'd like to have some input as to when the next meetup occurs, your chances are fast running out.

Vote now!

Re: Blackpool meetup in June-August 2019?

Select those weekends you would like it to take place on.
There's no formal mechanism for handling two votes. I'll just adjust the numbers afterwards.

Okie dokey. I've put the poll together, and you can access it from here:

I'll leave it open for a couple of weeks.

Re: Blackpool meetup in June-August 2019?

Okay, sounds as if there's plenty of interest. Before opening a poll to select a date, I suggest we briefly discuss the possible dates. Realistically, it has to be on a (long) weekend. The tried-and-tested schedule would have us all arrive on the Friday early afternoon and then look to travel home o...

Blackpool meetup in June-August 2019?

Dear all,

We're looking at doing a meetup over a weekend in Blackpool, some time in June to August 2019. We were wondering how much interest there was. Comment below.

Knightmare Chat Trivia

Over the last few years, a few people have suggested adding trivia to Knightmare chat . Generally I've resisted this, because I don't want to be responsible for having to add general knowledge questions to a database, and I didn't consider it likely that other people would do so. Well, it's taken me...

Re: And I'm here to say hi

Hello!

Good to hear from you :)

Probably your best port-of-call is Knightmare chat on Sunday evenings (8pm):
https://www.knightmare.com/home/chat

There's usually a handful of people around.

Re: Question for contestants: meeting adjacent teams

As a fan, one of the surprises of hearing from Knightmare contestants in subsequent years has been that some of those who 'didn't do well' from a watcher's point of view (compared to other teams) still had a winning experience, simply through getting to be on Knightmare. I guess that in participati...

Re: When is the next Knightmare convention happening?

Realistically, it's unlikely to happen. About a year ago, we did a full-scale cost analysis on running another convention, and we couldn't find a way to do it. Most places with sufficient video capability had tiny audience seating, and most places with big audience seating didn't have the video capa...

Re: Question for contestants: meeting adjacent teams

I recall that it was strongly discouraged. I seem to recall the rules (or one of the bits of paperwork we had) not exactly prohibiting it, but strongly discouraging us from interacting and sharing information. Keep in mind that the backup team was called as soon as the primary team started, and it w...
