Happy 18th birthday, TT-Forums!

Post by orudge »

18 years ago, The Transport Tycoon Forums were launched. I think this calls for a beer (which the forums are now old enough to legally pay for in the UK!) :)

Definitely calls for a beer. A TT Beer, perhaps?

Well, we haven’t had a TT Meet for a while, perhaps some sort of virtual beer event would work...

Time sure fly's when we having fun .. Happy Birthday Forums and much thanks to you orudge for getting these forums started.

To have the TT Meet why not choose a date and a time. What ever country players live in at on the date and at that time they have a special drink or do something special to celebrate.

They can then report here let everyone know how they celebrated.

Cheers orudge

I hope the forums buy me a pint now they're old enough! :lol:

Might have to have a beer or two on Friday after work to celebrate their birthday!

18. Now I can legally saw, phwoar! Look at them forums!

I was going to celebrate by buying a bottle of the beer Chrill linked above, but it's either not available anymore, or simply not sold in the UK or readily imported to the UK :(
I shall instead, celebrate with a shot of vodka!

If ever you do come to Sweden, I'll buy you a TT beer! I doubt we export it, it's a very mediocre beer indeed. :mrgreen:

I bought a beer in Stockholm once. I’m still paying off the mortgage.

It's not that bad! What's a pint of lager in any big UK city these days? A beer at a decent bar/pub will set you back maybe £6-7 in Stockholm. Not that I've bought one since before March... :roll:

Heh, I jest somewhat, but I think it was a tenner (GBP) or so at a hotel bar. That said, I paid about the same in my hotel in Oman for a pint. In the trendier pubs in Aberdeen you’d maybe be £5 or so for a pint, £3-4 or so at the cheaper pubs.

It’s been quite some time since I’ve been to a pub or bar though anyway!

I should never forget that the 26th October is TT-Forums birthday as it also my birthday. Just think I was 18 just 48 years ago. :roll:
