Gamers rejoice, as we’re coming back with another video-game filled event. It’s been a while since we had a gaming session, but now it’s time to put on your gamers gauntlet, as we celebrate video games in all of its glory.
FOODIE PRE-MEET TBC (TBC):
Wanna grab some grub with us before the event? Great! We’ll be up for a feast before the event, so check the comments below on Sunday 24th for the pre-meet food poll!
MAIN EVENT: 14:00-Midnight (Old Market Tavern)
Our gamers get together is taking place in the great halls of the Old Market Tavern. Get ready, we’re about to have a night of gaming; but if video games aren’t your thing, don’t panic – We still have lots of board games!
Food & drink can NOT be brought in with you to the Old Market Tavern. If you are caught with food and drink on the premises, you will be asked to leave until you’ve disposed of your food or drink.
There will be a food menu at Old Market Tavern in the evening! The food is cheap and it’s delicious – usually available from 6pm.
Final note: If you are asked for ID by the bar staff, we will not vouch for your age – You must provide ID.

I really should stop writing puns…
*CHANGING FACILITIES* If you want to change into a costume when here, please note there are no changing facilities. There are just standard toilet cubicles – Which are fine to change in, but you might want to consider this first.
COMPETITION: Video Game Tournament
Are you a bit of a gamer? Good, because we need you to defeat the best that Bristol has to offer – Your fellow GeekOut Bristol Meet gamers! Will you be victorious, or will you be left in the dust?
Depending on the number of competitors, we’ll be looking to get round 2 down to 8 competitors and the final round to 4 competitors. We were going to announce the games in advance, but we’re not going to do this, as we don’t want people having a competitive advantage. Just know that all the games will be old-school or at least inspired by, or comes from a line of older games.
Round one to be finished by 8pm. Round two to be finished by 9pm and the finals to be finished by 10pm. Later than a usual competition for us, but I want to try and give as many people an opportunity as possible.
1st Place: £25, a GeekOut poster and first dibs on a physical prize.
2nd Place: £15, a GeekOut poster and second dibs on a physical prize.
3rd Place: £10, a GeekOut poster and whatever’s left of the physical prizes.
Prizes so far: Nintendo 64 (w/1 Controller, Ocarina of Time and Perfect Dark), two more prizes tbc.
As part of our commitment to being a great night out, we do not discriminate based upon age (although our min age requirement is venue policy), disability, gender, race, religion or sexuality. If at any point you feel you need to speak to someone about another’s actions, please grab the host (Timlah) and we’ll sort it out!
