GeekOut Bristol Meet – July 12th: Best of British Geeks Summary

Every month I like to do these roundups, as a way to show people that hey, there are people out there who like to game. This month was a quieter affair for us, but it’s just as well as it was also the day before Bristol Pride, meaning the bar was pretty damn busy at points. Nevertheless, we had a great night out with plenty of games. Lots of people interacted with us, discussing games and getting involved in the quiz which had 14 entries – All in all, a successful night. Here’s how the day went and a few quick bits of information about next month’s event.

GeekOut Bristol Meet – May 10th: To Be A Pokémon Master Gallery

Another event has now come and gone, as swiftly as a Pidgeot. Whenever a GeekOut Bristol Meet comes to a close, I like to reflect upon the events of the night. The competition, the prizes, the people and the conversations. Even the weather is worth mentioning from time to time, so in this month’s gallery, here’s a quick rundown of what happened, how the night went and most importantly, some information regarding our next event. Oh, of course, we also have a bunch of pictures to share with you lovely lot. As ever, this is our gallery of this month’s GeekOut Bristol Meet.

GeekOut Bristol Meet – November 10th: Literally Literature Gallery

We always love to share how our events went, especially when we had a genuinely excellent time all around. We went to the Old Market Tavern, many of us braving the incredibly unpredictable weather of the day (I would know, I was drenched). We gathered in the pub, bought a pint or two, or ten – and we met plenty of new people and familiar faces alike. Whilst we don’t have too many pictures of this one, the competition was awesome and as ever, we’ll detail what happened at the event. So, check out what happens at one of our GeekOut Bristol Meets.

GeekOut Bristol Meet – October 12th: Spectre Waltz Gallery

October, a month for the spooky and the macabre. A month when children dress up like the little monsters they are, whilst asking for sugar to make them even more energetic. However, it’s not just the kids who get into the spirit of Halloween. Us grown adults still love a good excuse to throw a costume on and to decorate the place, making it a spooky spectacular for all involved. Yeah, alright, I didn’t have much in the way to make the place spookier, but we certainly did have the right people come along, helping us by making the place a Halloween haven – And we were just under three weeks early!

GeekOut Bristol Meet – June 8th: Tech Toys Summary

We got techy and we got talking in another successful GeekOut Bristol Meet. It was a fun, eventful night, which saw our crew getting use of the brand new garden at the Old Market Tavern, which looks stunning. If you’re in Bristol and you have a chance to visit the tavern, please do go and enjoy a beverage in the garden – Well worth it. Nevertheless, as ever, we held our GeekOut Bristol Meet and this month, I didn’t get many pictures..! With that in mind, instead of today being called a gallery, I’m calling it a summary! Also, we got a new game, so check back tomorrow for a full review.
