Actually, I think I'll go with the DB6 one, as it's slightly thinner.

I'm going to suggest a last second switch from Good Games to The Nerd Cave. Also nearby, less likely to have the pure ears of young children nearby as we play CAH.

I just checked train times; I'll be arriving on Platform 7 at 12:14 (assuming I don't get held up by a freight train).

I just remembered I have a copy of The Resistance. Anyone want me to bring that along?

I think that would be the same train I'd take from Newcastle, gets in at Central at 12:25 as well so we can meet-up on one of the train carriages if that be the case.

Anyways, I'll be the guy in a blue cap, jeans with a Starcraft 2 satchel bag.

Duckay bring your trades because I have 2 Thoughtseizes in my binder if you're after them.

You're speaking my language, good sir. I'm not sure what I have for grabs that's worth that but you're more than welcome to have a look.

Also on the mtg-front, yay or nay? Saves me lugging decks around in my bag.

I figured I'd bring my standard deck and two Commander decks and just see how the mood took us. Still need to rebuild my modern deck or I'd bring that. Otherwise I'd guess we probably won't really do much Magic-ing so if it's a pain for you don't worry about your decks.

I have a Commander deck that's complete except for three cards. One of which happens to be the Commander... :P
I'll bring a deck or two though. My favourite playground is casual Modern, but I have a standard deck or two for occasions like this.

I'm on the train now and just realized that we never sorted out which carriage to meet you on! I feel silly now.

Don't worry I caught an earlier one that was express. I'm half an hour away so I'll hazard a guess that I'll be the first one there.

And it was fun!
But we forgot to take photos until long after Phailhammer had left. That was silly of us.

From left to right:
ZePancakes, YoshiGal, Duckay, JackSlack.

(Not pictured: WAYF, Phailhammer. But they were probably having a fun time too.)

Incidentally, Cards Against Humanity is probably the best party game of all time. If you have the right people.

I was sitting on a train somewhere near Blacktown at the time, judging by the post time. I would have taken photos myself, had my phone not been on about 30% battery. I do at least have a replacement portable battery now.

We also managed to unlock the "Someone Needs to Change" achievement when YoshiGal arrived; we were wearing the same shirt. XD

T-shirts acquired! Now I can go to these meet-ups actually looking like I'm a fan of LRR! :P

Of course, the university/work balance is going to be most of the problem for me, but on weekends I should be... free-ish? Slightly free?

Hello Sydneysiders.

I will be in your city on business from the fourth till the eleventh of May. I was wondering if anyone is up for a meet up?
