The Week in Geek – 29/09/2014
We’re back once again ladies and gentlemen for another awesome edition of The Week in Geek. This week, we’ve had a bit of a slow one, but it’s also been an exciting one for a few reasons. Here’s last week’s geek happenings and what there is to look forward to!
GeekOut South-West’s next meetup
That’s right, last week we did a new post on the next GeekOut South-West meetup which is taking place This Friday. Why not come along if you’re in or around Bristol, UK? We’d love to see you there. More information can be found on our Meetup page.
After only 4 days, Anderson Entertainments’ Firestorm made its’ funding goal! Stretch goals are being put up and achieved in short order, and with every new goal, Firestorm becomes that little bit more awesome. So far we already have a new set – the interior of Ocean Storm, and a bigger explosion – a very real (model) building detonated for our entertainment. So much more still to come, and you still have 28 days left to show your support and get some cool stuff in the process.
Samurai Chef Funded!
That’s right, on a similar vein to the Firestorm announcement above, Samurai Chef has already received more than enough for funding! Exciting stuff lies ahead for us and I really hope Mayamada keeps their momentum going. They are great guys who deserved to get their comic to light. Plus, they do a lot of work within the Otaku community as seen in yesterday’s post.
Shameless self promotion:
On October 19th, e-Collectica Games will be hosting a tabletop games day, and because it’s e-Collectica’s birthday this games day they will be including a Settlers of Catan tournament with prizes to be won, their annual Fluxx competition, and will also see the return of Viking Tomato – a role-play using the Savage Worlds system hosted by Quotes From the Tabletop with our very own Mike Pound at the helm. Take the time to try Privateer Press’ Warmachine and Hordes miniature war-game. There will also be a library of games to play, but plenty of space for those of you who want to bring your games to play too.
This is the third such event e-Collectica have allowed me to run, and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it. If any of you guys are going to be in the Shropshire area on October 19th, come to the Morris Hall on Bellstone from 9:30 onwards. Tickets are £3 on the door, but please feel free to register your name by contacting us here at GeekOut South-West to get the pre-booking discount.
That’s it for this Week in Geek! If you know of anything happening that you think should get a small piece on this site, let us know! Drop us an e-mail or even use the contact form below. If you don’t want your name to be featured or if you want some information to be displayed should your news make it in, then please let us know what you want and we’ll accredit you as expected!
