Board Games at Tobacco Factory – July 10th

Board Games are still on the rise as of late, where popularity has surged thanks to a hugely changing market. From small games likes Exploding Kittens, through to much larger, more complex games like Catan. In Bristol, a new(ish) shop has been set up, called Rules of Play. Based over in St. Nicholas Market, Rules of Play stock board games and tabletop gifts. However, tomorrow, they’re taking on something much larger. They’re running a gaming session over at The Tobacco Factory – And everyone’s invited!

Behind The Scenes: Running A GeekOut Bristol Meet

I’ve been asked a few times about how we get it done; how every month, without fail, we’ve managed to run a GeekOut Bristol Meet since 2013. How every month, I manage to get a large collection of geeks to a pub. How we manage to get people playing games, people drinking and eating together – and most importantly, how on Earth do we get such a good atmosphere? I can’t answer all of these questions (trade secrets), but if you’re looking to run your own Meetup event somewhere, perhaps this is food for thought?

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.

Bristol Comic Con – Event Review

As I approached Brunel’s Old Station, I managed to mostly dodge the tail of a large animatronic Raptor as it swished it’s tail back and forth through the crowd outside the station, some of who were just waiting for a bus. Somewhere inside of the large beast must have contained a person, who was no doubt sweating profusely. It approached people of all ages and was very gentle with people of a younger age, who might have been scared.

Upon entering the arena, you could already see there were people from all walks of life and of all ages. It’s always a lovely reminder that the fandoms traverse all ages and all manners of people.

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. From Friday 30th until Saturday 31st at the Bristol Hippodrome, the event boasted four slots in which you could go and enjoy games from a bygone era. 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?
