I'm seriously tempted to go to the Stratego World Championships in Newcastle on August 3-7. This will only be possible if I've got any money left in the bank by that point (because that's well past the deadline of needing-to-get-a-job and I really don't want to run up too big a credit card bill before I even start job-hunting), so we'll just have to see how my many and varied sources of income in July pan out.
But it sounds like a great event, five days of different kinds of stratego in the company of board-game-weirdos like me! And although I'm a pretty poor player, and only a couple of the regular players are even nodding acquaintances of mine, they seem like a nice bunch.
