    My Mum is effectively currently playing real life tetris with the stuff that I'm taking trying to fit it in the car

    Won't let me or my Dad help for fear of ruining her system :P

    Just make sure she doesn't forget you need to fit in eventually too. Or you could take the train, I guess. :p:

    I know this question has probably already been asked and I'm sure the answer varies from College to College, but I'm curious as to roughly how much, excluding accommodation costs, first term battels are likely to be?

    This gives you a summary of likely costs, although I think it does very massively across colleges. You should be able to find accomodation/food costs on the college website.

    I have star wars monopoly
    I love monopoly! My grandad was teaching me how to play monopoly and chess but then he sadly died so I never really played either to a good standard. Chess I can leave (too much maths) but I'd love to retry monopoly! I learnt on the Yorkshire version, so Im intriuged to see what StarWars v. looks like.

    Ooh, that's quite exciting.

    I can assure you my dad probably booked it because there was some sort of offer on meaning it wasn't expensive. :P he's an accountant, and from Yorkshire, and therefore is very very mean with money!

    Don't worry!!!! That place is brilliant, lovely rooms, very quiet. Are you a history student???? Thomas cranmer was imprisoned there before his exectution, I think in the rooms which are now pizza express!!! Lol
    That's so cool! I read a review where it was described as being quiet because of the 'very thick walls'...interesting.

    I didn't actually write the comic, honest. It just conveys pretty accurately my opinion on Monopoly (and most other board games, for that matter).

    This is quite unfair. Most board games are much, much better than Monopoly.

    Thats the way to do it! We once stayed for 1 night in a snazzy 4* hotel, because it was cheaper than the Holiday Inn!

    Well I've finished packing (basically). One large suitcase, 2 boxes, 4 large bags, and The Printer.

    I think that's a respectable amount...

    Haven't started yet, have got nothing "essential" yet either.

    Last minute trip to the 24hr ASDA FTW.

    I think I'm pretty much finished. One suitcase which is packed with smart clothes, a large sports bag with overflow shirts and less smart stuff, and a small rucksack with shoes. Then there are various bags with electronic stuff, laundry/bathroomy things, a shoulder bag filled with papers/folders/stationery and another with drinks and tea stuff. Still have to find a box for my books and crockery, oh and speakers. Must have decent quality sounds. So relieved I'm going up in our van. Considering taking my record player too.

    So, I'm certainly not finished. Might have to miss Downton Abbey tonight!

    Oxford is not worth that kind of sacrifice.
