    We're very happy to announce that we're holding an after expo after party on Saturday 24th September at The Pembroke just five minutes walk from Earls Court.

    The party is being held in association with our friends at StickTwiddlers and is sponsored by OnLive and NCsoft. Super.

    So, what's happening? Well this lot:

    - Free drinks*
    - SNES tournament
    - Pub quiz
    - Gaming raffle
    - DJ set by Nintendisco

    The party will run from 7pm until we pass out (7.29pm in my case). We have 300 tickets available and if you'd like to come along then you'll need to donate 5 to Special Effect via Just Giving - http://www.justgiving.com/Eurogamer-Sticktwiddler-Party All ticket proceeds will be going to Special Effect!

    When you're making your donation please make sure to include your full name as well as the names of anyone you're buying tickets for, as they'll be used to make up the guest list on the door. If your name's not down etc.

    Please bring along a print out of your Just Giving receipt. We'll use that along with your name as a ticket.

    So come along, we'll get drunk and I'll try to forget that I've still got another day of the expo to go.

    *until the tab runs out!

    Sounds like Nintendo should be sponsoring it.

    At London prices, that'll be about five minutes then.

    Would loved to have come to this, but alas I am a Thursday and Friday child. I will have my own party in my hotel room. There will be free mints and shower gel for all! (well, me).

    Sounds cool.

    And tickets fees go to a good cause. Double win!

    It's a shame you couldn't have found a way around the 'tickets' issue as it means no GiftAid!

    Speak the truth hussy!

    Go on then. In for a penny, in for a 5 pounds.

    If I get at least 2 free pints out of it then economically speaking I'm onto a winner

    Just say it's not in exchange for a ticket! It's already ticked for you!

    As it obviously is in exchange for a ticket I figured it could cause problems for the charity if I just ignored it and did it anyway.

    Or now i'll just look like a cunt :p

    I'm not big on alcoholic drinks but this sounds like fun in any case. I might go with my gf (I'll decide later on, I'm going for a sleep since I've been up all night).

    How does it work with buying multiple tickets? It says add the other persons name but when I went to the page and clicked donate (just to see how the process worked), it only asks for one persons name?

    Can you put multiple names in there? If not maybe just stick +1, +2 or whatever.

    Although I guess since it's multiples of 5 it isn't a problem. Just make sure your name is in there, innit.

    Hmm, just saw a comment from Scurr (I'm guessing) on the page which says "Tickets for (names)". Guess that comes afterwards and not on the first page of the donate thing?

    Thanks for testing that Scurr.

    Can't you put the name in the message field (you usually get the option to write a message at the last step of the donation process)?

    Hold on, do you need a valid Expo ticket to go to the after party?

    I went to the one last year; think the tickets were 50 and that was a lot of fun. So for 5 this should be a wicked time (and I think it's at the same place too, that right Ven?)

    Different party, chief. We're still doing the industry party on the Friday and that still costs 50 (again for charity).

    Yep, same venue.

    Hmmmm tempted, but I'll be with my wife and kid. I'll feel guilty leaving them at the hotel.
