Speaking of Worlds…..anyone have a decent hotel suggestion for that area?  Anything near the event center maybe?

We stayed at Embassy Suites in downtown St. Paul when we went up there. I'd definitely recommend something around there, because it was about a 15-20 minute drive to both the Mall of America and the FFG Event Center, and the area is gorgeous.

Should see if we can get some sort of group rate.

Bonus points if we can designate an unofficial "Cthulhu Hotel."

"Cthulhu Hotel" - now we're talking.  I think I will have to fly in…..18 hour car ride doesn't sound too exciting.  I'm guessing a car rental might be needed.  If we designate Hotel Cthulhu we could probably car pool?

I think fantasy flight has 2 different hotels that are both1 block away from the event center. We should all stay at one of those.

There are two hotels within 1 block of the event center.

Days inn and Radisson. I think that have event rates during FFG events. I suggest emailing Jaffer Batica to ask about specifics.

 Thanks Hellfury!  Well the Radisson clearly looks much nicer than the Days Inn, but almost double the price.  I will probably go with the Days Inn just to save some extra cash.

I'm defiantely flying in as well so I'd certainly be up for a car pool.

Hotel makes no difference to me as to which one. Nicer place is a nicer time, but cash savings is always good esepcially if it's actually double. =/

I'd go for the cheaper one - my reasoning being that I'll be gone all day and all I'm going to do in the hotel is sleep.

But, I don't think I'll be able to make it anyway so my vote doesn't count for much.  That weekend also happens to be our wedding anniversary and I'm pretty sure my wife would prefer that I don't spend it flying across country to play card games :)

Looking at Expedia, the Days Inn is showing about $55 a night.  The Radisson is at $118.  Radisson looks MUCH nicer though, so you'll get what you pay for I'd imagine.

If I end up flying in where is the nearest airport to the event center and how far away is it?

Looking at google maps, it seems about 12 miles from the airport to Roseville.

Flying in, you will land at MSP airport. I recommend taking the light rail to north to down town Minneapolis and then picking up a cab to your hotel from there (assuming you plan to stay close to the event center). This will save you a bundle of money unless the hotel you are staying at has a good shuttle service rate from the airport.

For people flying in who are nervous about getting lost in town, you can PM me and we can exchange numbers so that you can have a safety net to get you to where you need to go in case the situation goes south for you. Always good to have a friend when a stranger in a strange land.

There are also plenty of food options close by the the event center, ranging from fast food all the way to vegetarian healthfood for the more conscientious. They are about 4 blocks away, so they are technically within walking distance as well. Public transportation also goes to within 1 block of the event center if such is needed.

I went ahead and booked the Days Inn.  Got a rental car also if anyone needs a ride.

I think I'll be available for a game or two on Thursday evening.


Not all those who wander are lost.
