Heh - I was sceptical... but was shopping on Shaftesbury Avenue that evening anyway, so popped into the Trocadero... and slipped under the half-closed shutters into J.P.'s magical table-football wonderland. Fantastic work from J.P. and his team, and I hope it's a real success. Good to see Mogwai (Snakey-to-Euro on sweat-ball!? :lol:), Pinky and the Slag there, and to meet and get crushed by Rhys et al. Can still remember how to shoot after a 2-year hiatus, which is pleasing. Never had a midfield, so can't really blame that on rustiness. :)

I will definitely pop down at some point in the near future and I'll drag along Tucker too, kicking and screaming if I have too....

We need to work out how best to advertise this (and other events).

Here on BritFoos, on facebook, or on the London Table Football meetup?

The issues are the disjoint sets of people who use the three forums, and the usefulness of knowing who is attending, which the latter two provide.

Another issue if the fact that the meetup group has been (temporarily?) disbanded by JP's hacker.

Ah, so the Garlandos aren't staying at 50p (which I think is the standard London price, as opposed to 20p outside London)?

What planet are you from?

Garlandos are only 20p in schools and colleges. Maybe Geoff has a few in public places, but I've never seen a 20p table in the wild.

Commercial venues will charge 50p a game - and in London it's more like £1.
