No, I'd rather play at home in my underwear. (If you wont say it, I will, lol!)

Dublin's not in the UK guys...

On a slightly more related note, Resort seems to have a lot more to offer in the way of sports than the original - which I still find fun now and then.
I'd be tempted to check out one of the competitions but none are near me .

I'll also be buying it on Friday, but I may pop down to Oxford Street to see what this competition is about. I do love a good competition!

@Rum Rapture, there's one in Glasgow, but NL have failed to recognise this.

Anyways, who's going to Leeds? I might see you there, if so!

No beach party in Brighton, where there's, you know, a beach? Tsk.

I love the games, and they oly take a little while to get the hang of, the frisbee with your dog catching it is fun, and my daughter loves the sword fighting one, but I hate how you can win by throwing off your opponent by blocking all the time.

Great games though.
