FYI update, I am still keen on this, and hope I will know for definite on Monday. It looks likely at the moment.

Thinking I could possibly swing this, but would have to come up Friday evening and probably couldn't stay for the entire team game (lame I know, but families involve making compromises). Anyone have an opinion on how worthwhile appearing for such a limited time would be? How does the team game work anyways? (I would guess that we're all group-strategizing the moves for a single country?)

I believe the team game (round 5 on the Sunday) is played out on different boards with each member of a team taking on one of the 7 countries, so each country has a team representative. Don't know if that makes sense?

Here's the link:
https://wdc2017.com/tournament

If you scroll down to the last paragraph there's a description of how this functions. So as we'd all be playing on 7 different boards simultaneously, I think the "team" aspect only comes into play if a player is eliminated, he or she would then have time to go support other team members.

Anyway - it would be great to meet you there Guns of Brixton!

Still on hold, but it is looking like 80% at the moment. Should know by Friday. I have signed up as likely to be there, and there are plenty of rooms by the sound of things. Does everybody stay at the St John's college? Assuming I am going to be there, I will travel on the Thursday pm. I will be happy with any power in the team event.

Okay, for the team round on Sunday, we have: Carebear, Big Gun, Buachaille, prgm, and WarSmith.

We need two more players to round out the team.

I'm sure we'll be able to round up some (other) weirdos while there...

GPD and GoB might still come through. Plus, maybe some of the FtF ODC @ PDET participants.
