Christmas time, mistletoe and board games! I think that’s how the song goes…
Yes, hello, welcome back you lovely folk. We’re Timlah and Joel and today, we’ve opened up the “Large, Flat Green Present at the back”, as your choice from last week. Lo and behold, the present happened to be this week’s Top 10, our Top 10 Board & Card Game Stocking Fillers. These are all small games, under £20, along with their price and a relevant Amazon link – You know, for them last minute purchases you totally needed to do.
What? We can’t assume you’re prepared for Christmas, can we? (more…)
August, that long awaited Shrewsbury meet, a whole six weeks have elapsed since last we gathered and the enthusiasm has not faded, nay it has grown. Although it’s notable that with the encroaching term-time, and so many of you retreating back to university our numbers have taken a small blow, so too will our growth from month-to-month subside for a while. Still, there is ever more to look forward to.
This month’s theme was Tengen Toppa GeekOut Lagann, which will make very little sense to those not at least vaguely into their anime. Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is a ridiculously over the top anime about robots fighting moons and smashing together to make walking boat-swords. You can see the appeal. Our mechs will not be fighting anyone with boat-swords…
Looking for an excuse to stay in with your friends and family, rather than heading on out pretending to be a ghost? Well we have the perfect menagerie of monstrous games for you to play this All Hallow’s Eve. Get yourself to a local game shop,although some of these certainly aren’t in print any longer. So grab your friends and family, get the Halloween punch ready and be afraid, be very afraid.
These are the best, most entertaining games that you can play on Halloween.
May comes and May goes, but every month something new for GeekOut Shrewsbury. More new faces, more new games, more new plans for our glorious and shining future! And as we continue to grow you continue to grow with us, making the Shrewsbury Meets yours. Remember we’re always looking for ways to improve and make these events better for everyone, so we want your input on what you want, on what you geek out about, because we’re not just out to play board games all evening.
Not that that’s a bad plan, but it damn near killed some of us this month. (more…)
In those moments between games, where people are sat around waiting for the last couple of people to show up so you can dig into the game you’re really waiting to play, and it’s been a boring week so conversation is running thin, there aren’t all that many games that you can set up in seconds and play in under an hour. Zombie Dice is one of them, and it’s one of the best. (more…)
