It was definitely a Bizarre kind of night on Friday, where the good folk who attended GeekOut Bristol Meet came up with some awesome stands to call their own. It was a quieter meetup, with the entire pub being somewhat quieter than usual, but that wasn’t a problem – It meant there was more space for us all to play some great games and have excellent conversation. Most of the attendees would likely agree that the quieter atmosphere made for a much more relaxing day, so come join us as we check out this month’s GeekOut Bristol Meet.
OH MY GOD!!
Get your stands out, it’s time for us to get ready for our very own Bizarre Adventure! With a new season of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure coming out later this year, it’s time for us to celebrate the ripple and of course, Za Warudo!
Oh and for any of you who don’t know what we’re on about, it’s cool – Come along and enjoy our antics anyway, as it’ll be another great night of fun and games!
No matter the political climate, nor the weather, we melted our way over to the Old Market Tavern at 2pm, for another great evening. Lots of faces, both new and old, which made for an excellent night out! We saw some exceptional costumes, even if people had to change in and out of them due to the heat. Thanks to everyone who turned up and as ever, we got some snaps of the event. From the costumes to the festivities, here is what went down at GeekOut Bristol Meet this past Saturday night.
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?
We’re back for a much more techy GeekOut Bristol Meet – This month, we’ll be celebrating all that is tech. So whether you’re a gaming enthusiast, or a Pi-Purist, bring your gadgets and gizmos (but not the gremlin sorts) and let’s get to it! Expect to see more than you were expecting, from hardware, gadgets, code – and hey, one of our prizes will even be a BBC Micro Go. Interested? Read on!
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.
Jump into your TARDIS and make your way to May’s GeekOut Bristol Meet, where we get all timey-wimey with the good doctors of Bristol! This month will be filled with dangerous Daleks, Cruel Cybermen and some curiously fine scarves! Join us for another 10 hour long event (exclusing our 2 hour pre-meetup), where we’re going to enjoy some good food and drink, followed by some excellent games and geeky conversations.
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!
Disney has been a prominent part of pop culture for nearly a century. In fact, in 7 years time, it’ll be 100 years old. Today, GeekOut Bristol Meet proudly presents to you a majestic Disney-inspired meetup! Whether you’re the Belle of the ball, or if you fancy yourself to be more like Gaston, even though there’s no other like Gaston, come along and show us how you’re as uncanny as Gaston! Oh – and come enjoy a Disney-inspired GeekOut Bristol Meet.
Everyone loves a good cosplay, along with the cosplayers who come up with genius ways to make their favourite characters come to life. In the past 10 years, cosplay has become part of every day fandom. Looking back to the past, we must thank people such as Forrest J Ackerman for his contributions to the now flourishing scene. As part of the growing part of fan communities that incorporates cosplay, we thought we’d celebrate costume making – by getting people to make their own costumes at this months meet… With paper… and card… and sellotape… And other cheap bits of materials that people brought along. People rose to the challenge and boy, was it ever an excellent event?
