UK Geek Events Spreadsheet

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.

Tabletop Gaming Live event – London

Before we get into the article, I just want to say a huge thanks to Tabletop Gaming Magazine for issuing us Press passes for the event.

Despite the drizzly London weather, I turned up to what I believe was the second year that Tabletop Live took place. The location was the beautiful Alexandra Palace in North London. I thought it might be a smaller and more intimate version of UK Games Expo, and I was not wrong.

A single-day ticket cost £16 for an adult, £11 for a young adult and a family ticket was priced at £41 (2 Adults and 2 Young adults). Two-day tickets were a pretty good deal if you wanted to attend both days at £26 for an adult, £11 for a young adult and £66 for a two-day family ticket. During the expo, there was plenty of opportunities to grab a bargain, and there were some interesting workshops and talks, including one by Ian Livingstone CBE.

GeekOut Bristol Meet – March 8th: Mash The Keypad Gallery

The attendees of Bristol came and played their hearts out, in a competition that had two major prizes. Cash, physical prizes and pride was on the line, as not three, but four attendees walked away with a gift worth talking about. The retro games took their toll on people, as they were as hard as we remembered them. As another event is now behind us, it’s time for our monthly look back at what happened. As ever, we’ll look at the numbers that made up our event, as well as the competition, the prizes and more.

GeekOut Bristol Meet – February 9th: Stay A While, Story-Teller

Stories are wonderful, especially when they’re you’re own! If you’ve ever wanted to write your own short story and have people read what you’ve written, you’re sort of in with a chance. Sort of. Oh and we’ll see how many people we can get to bring their writers hat for this event, too. This is just a good excuse to wear hats and read fun creative works from all of you, in all honesty.

GeekOut Discord Server Changes in 2019

Discord has undergone some drastic changes this year, from being purely about a chat environment, to selling games. Meanwhile, we here at GeekOut Media haven’t really done a lot to ensure that our Discord channel evolves with us. In all honesty, it’s something I’ve been meaning to fix up for quite some time… So, in the new year, we’ll introduce a few new changes to our server. Join us as we look at what we’re going to do in 2019.

A Call To Local Geek Businesses: Make Yourselves Known

We here at GeekOut Media often get a number of emails from retailers, charities and more. They start off by telling us about something exciting that’s upcoming, or about some stock they got recently. I was inspired to write this quick article by one such email I got from Books for Amnesty in Bristol. They were asking for us to share that they had some manga in stock – and it was quite a selection. Hey, if you’re reading this Colin, I hope you’re doing well and that you’ve started to sell a couple of them manga novels! I’m still going to have to pop by at some point for those Shaman King books, unless they move.
