Defn. Geek (gēk) - noun - An individual with a particular interest or devotion to a subject that goes beyond or is not considered to be in the cultural mainstream. Music Geek, Gaming Geek, Anime Geek, Film Geek...

Yes you identify yourself as a geek. For you it is a mark of pride, a mark of distinction. You've stood in the lines at the comic cons, comfortably read manga right to left and understand that a Dalek is not a pepper shaker.

We are group of people like you and contrary to mainstream belief we can be quite social. Who doesn't enjoy a pint of lager over a game of Catan as the Tardis flies across the tele in the background?

None the less, Brisbane is a big town and sometimes it can be hard to find people with such refined tastes of the fun and truly awesome. That is where we come in. Perhaps your interests are in table top games such as Dominion, Ticket to ride or Zombies. Perhaps you simply want to watch the next simulcast of Uchū Kyōdai. Heck maybe you just want a group to go to the zombie walk with. Well then, there is a place for you here.

    Play nicely with others: Be mindful of words and actions while attending meetings to help ensure that all attendees feel welcome. Inappropriate language and behaviour will not be tolerated, and offenders may be asked to leave the event.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
