Every month a bunch of us get together and meet up at a pub in Bangalore. This is a chance to meet and hang out with others who are into games, as well as people who are in the games industry. Whether you're in the industry or not, the group is open to anyone who enjoys (or who wants to get into) video games.
The meetups take place in a casual and relaxed atmosphere where we can all sit back, relax and enjoy ourselves; we don't really have an agenda or structure. That said, we do usually have a short session with a few 5-minute mini-talks that people can give on whatever topic they choose if they feel like doing so.
Our meetups have now moved to Big Pitcher, so we now have access to some of the best beer in town!
Our little community is growing, and our meetup was mentioned in the Guardian!
