February 2018 Update: GeekOut Medias Top of the Top 10s

It’s been a while since we last spoke about our highly ambitious eBook, capturing our Top 10’s in a format which is both similar to a digest, but yet comprehensive enough for anyone who hasn’t had the experience of our Top 10’s before. Naturally, we’ve been thinking long and hard about it, but there’s a lot of time and planning involved with a project like this. So, if you’ve ever been faced with making an eBook before yourself, let’s look at what we’ve been doing behind the scenes in order to get on with it!

GeekOut Bristol Meet – January 12th: Hero Academy Gallery

PLUS ULTRA!

We had a hero inspired meetup this meet, where we took everybody to school and tested them in a huge competition, which took me most of the day to run (but damn, was it ever entertaining?) We had plenty of entrants, of which everyone got five minutes in and hey – We got through the event with more people than expected. Considering it was January, I was surprised to see so many people eager for another GeekOut Bristol Meet, as opposed to hiding away due to Christmas. Still, you all came and saw – so as ever, here’s our monthly gallery of the happenings of the event.

GeekOut Bristol Meet – December 9th: A Very Star Wars Christmas Gallery

Whilst Sunday 10th was a rather snowy day down here in Bristol, Saturday was a fairly sunny day. Sure, it was cold outside, but it didn’t stop people getting down to the pub for another good old GeekOut Bristol Meet. There was a lot of food and drink consumed, a lot of geeks partying in the only way geeks know how and there was a lot of new people coming to join us, as well as plenty of our regulars too. From a slow start, the meetup picked up quickly and it turned into a rather busy night! As ever, join us for our monthly gallery of our events!

Genki Gear – Geek T-Shirt Greatness 

Since 2013, I’ve been attending conventions and one name has popped up frequently for me in the dealer’s hall. For me, a convention isn’t a convention without a few specific things in the dealer’s hall: Magic: the Gathering booster packs, because you never know when you’re going to find that mythic you’ve been gunning for – And Genki Gear, a company who’ve come a long way in a relatively short space of time.

Discord Competition – Free Game Codes!

This year, we’ve been looking after our Discord channel quite heavily – From starting to create a bot for the server (which is still a WIP), to racking up over 100 members, we’ve achieved a lot in a short space of time. If you’re a fan of our channel, or if you’re still unsure as to what the heck this Discord malarky is all about, then read on and join the Discord Channel to be in with a chance of winning five Steam Keys of your choice from our list of games. Interested? Read on, friends!

Project Working: 5 Tools To Get You Through Your Projects

Projects are a huge demand on an individual, especially if you have personal projects that you want to get through yourself. However, it doesn’t have to be so hard. With so many tools built for you to manage your projects, it can be just as hard choosing the right applications for you. This article covers five tools that I use regularly, helping me get through any project (and what I use them for).

Festival of the Spoken Nerd | GeekOut Interviews

After a few months of waiting, I went to see the Festival of The Spoken Nerd show in Wells last week. I had no idea what to expect from the show but was curious to find out and took four fellow geeks along with me. It was a busy crowd from a very varied age range, that I think spanned from 12 to 50+ and I think it certainly had something for everyone.

GeekOut Bristol Meet – September 8th: TECHY TEACHINGS Gallery

We really do love technology; that much is certain. We proved how much we love our tech, by showing off our new Raspberry Pi Arcade! However, that wasn’t all we did, as once again the geeks of Bristol gathered around for a night of fun and games; of both board and video variety. We drank together, we sang together (seriously, that happened) and overall we had a great time together. But hey, you’re here to see some pictures of the event and to learn a bit more about what happened. Along with seeing the pictures, we’ll share the competition so you can have a go if you’d like to!

GeekOut Bristol Meet – August 12th: TALKING TOLKIEN

18+ Event

J.R.R Tolkien was a wordsmith whose worlds have captured our imaginations for years; a writer whose works got three massive movies, before three more slightly-big-but-not-quite-the-same-as-the-first-three movies. An expert who creates a fantasy world unlike any other.

So whether you’re coming along as you want to just play some games, or if you feel like having a social meet after your Elevenses, it’s time for another exciting GeekOut Bristol Meet!

GeekOut Bristol Meet – July 14th: VIDEO GAME HELPLINE

The problem with an addiction is that it’s hard to admit it – Although let’s be honest, if you’re addicted to video games then you’re probably doing alright! We once again got our behinds to the Old Market Tavern, where we met up for some food and drink, board games and video games, as well as comics and books and so much more. People were chatting all night long and we got a nice number of attendees once more. As always though, we’re here to show you what happened throughout the night and to give you a bit of insider knowledge about next months event. Interested in what we did? Read on!
