Geek Out Christmas ’16

‘Tis the season to get geeky!



We’re fans of Christmas around here, and we really don’t care how or if you celebrate some holiday or other around about this time of year, or even if it’s even winter where you are (you crazy people in other hemispheres and ecosystems) we will continue to do what we do best, and what we hope all of you are doing every day of every year: Geeking Out as hard as we possibly can.

Here’s what you can look forward to…

Let’s Play

Don’t think we’ve forgotten about that YouTube channel of ours. It may have been a little while since it last saw activity, but don’t think it has simply been neglected, because despite all outward appearences GeekOut is a hive of activity; plans are afoot.

We begin this Sunday with “Quite possibly the worst game I [Tim] have ever played”. For this month you can expect a flurry of winter and christmas themed GeekOut Plays, if you have any suggestions of games we can sample, let us know in the comments, or on Facebook and Twitter.


Not one, not two, but TWO GeekOut Bristol MeetUps. And yes, there is a difference between two and TWO, these ones are better.

December 10th, the first of our duo sees the return of Super Secret Santa, participants put there gifts in and get one back, with no way to know who you’re buying for or who’s buying for you. The thrills! Next week’s MeetUp features special guest, me! And if you’re a fan of the pre-meet-meal, the vote is live now to choose a venue.

The second is New Years Eve, information should be appearing on our Facebook page this week. This event will require the purchase of tickets, and spaces are limited.

Rise of the Guardians


As ever, our Saturdays will feature the weekly geekly Top 10 as chosen by you, the reader. Expect seasonal options to pop up on the vote to get us through the most wonderful time of the year. But of course, that’s not all we’ve got planned.

We’ll be reviewing those best loved geek classic films such as A Nightmare Before Christmas, and taking the time to appreciate those lesser loved greats like Rise of the Guardians and Krampus: The Reckoning.

Tim will be discussing how you can geek up your Christmas tree, and I’ll be discussing the power of cold weather in games.

All in all this month is shaping up to be a great way to wrap up the year, but you still have time to get involved, even if you can’t join as at a Bristol Meet. We still accept submissions for articles or article ideas, and we love to hear your thoughts and suggestions for the site, so get in touch via our contacts page or our social media pages. And because it’s December, and we can finally say it without fear of anyone declaring it “Too Soon”…

Get ready for a Merry Christmas.
