GeekOut Bristol Meet – May 12th: Timey-Wimey Doctors Gallery

Get out your Sonic Screwdrivers folks, this month we celebrated all of the great Gallifreyans of the Doctor Who universe. It was a fun meet, filled with Doctors, geeky conversation and lots and lots of board games. The competition was pretty difficult, thankfully, but some mega-fans came through and absolutely killed it! But, like all of our events, they eventually have to come to a close and roll on midnight, we closed up and disappeared in our TARDIS… Or… You know, we drove away in a car.

The One Liner Challenge

The One Liner Challenge is a blog challenge set up by The Awkward Book Blogger, which actually is a little bit different. Instead of answering questions about yourselves, as a blogger, you try to make one-liners, either funny or as a summary of at least five books, manga, anime or games. I’m not huge on these blog games, but considering the types of articles we write here at GeekOut South-West, I thought it was a rather good idea. So for once, I’m taking part in a blogger challenge – and this is going to be a lot of fun.

Top 10 Board Games For 1-2 Players

GeekOut Top 10s

Home alone on a Saturday night, perhaps it’s a quiet night in with your significant other. Nothing interesting on Netflix, it’s cold and unpleasant outside, and you’ve already eaten more than you care to admit. What’s left to do… on your own… house to yourself/selves?

Board games!

Of course, there’s always board games to play, and while most of the vast array of titles available account for four or more players, there’s still plenty you can play with two or in some cases, even alone. Here are our Top 10 picks for board games for no more than two players.

UK Games Expo 2018 – Preview

You may remember that last year, Joel and I were able to get press passes to the UK Games Expo. Well, we at GeekOut Media are proud to announce that we have press passes for this year, too. We will be heading to Birmingham once more and spend three very full days hanging around the NEC, to cover as much as we can about the show for 2018 – and it is already looking to be bigger than ever.

GeekOut Bristol Meet – April 13th: Disney Gallery

For nearly a century, Disney has been providing us all with top notch entertainment in the form of beautiful art, exceptional animation and great storytelling. All in all then, Disney is pretty much one of the most recognisable names in the world, proving that adding a dose of magic into peoples lives will sometimes sell incredibly well. It’s with this in mind that we held this month’s GeekOut Bristol Meet to the theme of Disney and we got a new game out, which was heavily Disney influenced itself. As ever, welcome to our monthly gallery post!

Event Review: Reload, Relive, Replay – March 30th 2018

With an alliterative name, Reload, Relive, Replay was an event that took place in the centre of Bristol this past weekend.

Along with that, there were board games, merchandise, current games and even some virtual reality rooms. Taking place in the historic building by the fountains of the city centre, the video game event has now come and gone – But what was it like?

Airecon 2018 – Reporting from the con

It took the train just about five hours to trundle my way north to Harrogate from Bristol. With just one train change at Leeds, it was a very easy, but quite long journey. Airecon only occupies a small part of the Harrogate Convention Centre, but this does not mean it’s attendance is by any means small.
