GeekOut Bristol Meet – October 12th: GhoulOut
Ghouls, ghosts, monsters and foes, no matter what type of horrific creation you are, this month’s meetup is for you. For the night of All Hallows’ Eve is fast approaching, so let’s get together for a night of board gaming and of course, fancy dress.
FOODIE PRE-MEET Times: Poll Pending (TBC):
Wanna grab some grub with us before the event? Great! The poll has gone live, over on Facebook and Meetup. Here’s the Facebook poll.
MAIN EVENT: 14:00-Midnight (Old Market Tavern)
After the good grub, we’ll head on over to the Old Market Tavern for a night of fun and games, frivolity and frenetic energy. Whether you’re a ghoul who’ll groan at any of our terrible puns, or a monster who’ll beat everyone at board games, there’s something for everyone here!
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.
As always, we’ll have a large selection of board games available, so please do check out what we have:
– Bears vs Babies
– Binding of Isaac: Four Souls
– Bucket of Doom
– Cards Against Humanity
– Cash n Guns
– Exploding Kittens
– Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit
– Jungle Speed
– Love Letter
– Pokémon Monopoly
– Rogues to Riches
– Three Wishes

AND MANY MORE!
We won’t be bringing every game listed above with us: If there’s a specific game you want to see, please let me know in the comments below.
Will try to get a new game for this month’s event.
This is the event for you! Every year, Halloween comes around and invites people to dress up – And so our meetup is another chance to do just that! Come bring your favourite cosplay with you – You may be in to win a prize.
*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 consider this first.
COMPETITION: Ghoulish Cosplay Competition
The most important thing we’re looking for here is: Be unique. Whether that means you hand crafted something, or if you’ve designed your own Original Character, or perhaps you’ve just got some flair, come be yourself at this year’s Halloween treat!
You’ll be judged on the following criteria:
> Uniqueness: If you buy a costume, do you do anything to add to it? Alternatively, if you made the costume, what makes yours different?
> Usability: Costumes are sometimes bad for actual every day use. Show us how yours is different.
> Visuals: Are you the spookiest, ghouliest, evilest of them all?
Pictures will be taken with people individually for the competition and then there’ll be a group picture and also a chance for smaller group pictures, too.
1st Place: £25 and first dibs on a physical prize.
2nd Place: £15 and second dibs on a physical prize.
3rd Place: £10 and whatever’s left of the physical prizes.
Physical 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!
