The train company changed travel dates: Wednesday, Friday and Sunday ... taking the wednesday train would mean
we will miss the festival opening and cannot show the games at the exhibition.
We'll also open the ticket sales for 25 paid spots on the train for people who want to support the community. You can get one of the rare tickets via eventbrite. Only rule: First comes, first serves!
