It’s now close enough to Christmas to where we should be able to talk more about our New Year’s Eve 2019 event. We held one of these New Year’s Eve events in 2017 going into 2018. We were going to come back to for the 2018 New Year’s Eve, but circumstances dictated otherwise. Now, we’re back for another New Year’s Eve event filled with geeky fun. Want to know more? Good, read on and we’ll give you a summary of what’s happening, how you can join us and more!
Another month has passed us by and another GeekOut Bristol Meet has passed. This month, we were graced by the presence of a few people who hadn’t been to GeekOut in a while, so that was nice to see. We also had a Star Trek quiz that saw me marking 19 entries, so that was pretty ridiculous. Good job to everyone involved in the competition and to everyone who wanted to share their passion for Star Trek, or simply for board games. It was a casual affair, but it was a fun night filled with geeks and games. As ever, here’s our roundup of the events of GeekOut Bristol.
I’ve been trying to think of a way to get our UK Geek Events page to be, you know, better. It was fine for a little while, but constantly updating it has become tedious and if I’m being honest, clunky. So I got thinking about how to make this better, how we can do something as a community and how we can catalogue all of the great events that take place across the UK. I figured we might as well turn it into a Google Spreadsheet, as at least everyone will get access to the data this way.
They came, they saw, they spooked the regulars at the Old Market Tavern. On Saturday, the geeks of Bristol were back for another day and night of shenanigans and fun, combining board games, lots of drink and chats and of course, costumes. You can never celebrate Halloween too early in October, right? … Right? Well, we think so anyway, as we got our geeks together to celebrate the spooky month. The Old Market Tavern came to the rescue, bringing us excellent decorations to the conservatory and plenty of warmth and spirits in the main bar. So how did the event go?
With a “Ni”, our knights gathered around for an evening of fun and games, a hugely crafty competition and a lot of games across the board. From our typically large selection of games, through to a special drink presented to our noble warriors, we had a blast. September’s a strange time of year; a lot of folk are back to the grind after the summer holidays, the weather doesn’t quite know what to do with itself, it’s all a bit muddled. Thankfully though, we were there for another month, hopefully allowing people to get some much needed geeky familiarity within the Old Market Tavern.
Bristol-based knights, on your horses, for this month’s event we’re getting all defensive. Gather your best steed, steel your swords and let’s take on those bad guys… Over a board game or two!
Hey all, without lying about it, I had nothing planned for today as I’ve been out with our friends at Later Levels this weekend. Was awesome catching up with them all, so this post is literally just going to be a very short update on the website, what sort of directions we’re heading in and over to you. Basically, this is just a short catch up post, so I can also catch up with sorting other bits of the website out.
Another month has gone by and another gallery post! Yes, we got together, we spoke all about anime and we shared our love for the medium. There were people who travelled from far and wide, as well as a couple of costumed people to accompany. We also had a competition where we saw some incredible art drawn by the friends of GeekOut. With a good gathering of geeks, drinks were a-flowing and of course, we had plenty of games to play. So with all that said, let’s take a look at the images that makes up yesterday’s GeekOut Bristol Meet.
You know who loves anime? We do.
We love anime so much that we’re dedicating this event to anime. Join in with our anime-themed competition, wear your favourite cosplays and let’s chat anime over a board game.
