October, a month for the spooky and the macabre. A month when children dress up like the little monsters they are, whilst asking for sugar to make them even more energetic. However, it’s not just the kids who get into the spirit of Halloween. Us grown adults still love a good excuse to throw a costume on and to decorate the place, making it a spooky spectacular for all involved. Yeah, alright, I didn’t have much in the way to make the place spookier, but we certainly did have the right people come along, helping us by making the place a Halloween haven – And we were just under three weeks early!
A ‘smaller’ GeekOut Bristol Meetup took place on New Years Eve, to celebrate in the new year. Each time the year adds a one to its digits column, you know you need to do something that’s bigger and better than the year before. It’s like an incredible race to be as good as you can be – But we often get waylayed by unforeseen circumstance, or we just get bored of making the best of ourselves. It’s inevitable for us as humans to do this too… But that’s not necessarily a bad thing! So, for one day of the year only, we forget all about everything we know and love… We stop working, we get to a party, or we have a quiet indoors affair, snuggle up as best we can and just enjoy the fireworks: Literally.
Here at GeekOut, we love to play board games. During our meetups, we love to get out the pen and paper, the dice and the figurines. We’re big fans of being traditional and enjoying games that gets people talking. In the 80s, video games were just about hitting their height in popularity. Some would even call it the golden age of gaming. Today, I’m happy to announce next week’s GeekOut Bristol Meet is dedicated to those games. We’re going back to the 80s with our 80’s themed retro party! Join Timlah to find out more.
We have noticed a lot of the same questions get asked about our Bristol Meetups so we compiled a list of FAQ’s so that you might be able to answer the question for yourself. If you don’t find your question answered here, or want to know more, feel free to get involved on the GeekOut South-West Meetup page, or drop us a message below, on Facebook, Twitter, reddit or by email.
