18+ Event

Stop right there, criminal scum! That's what the world famous superhero, Imperial Watch-Man would say if he were to come across a supervillain. But nevermind all of that, we're here to talk about the heroes of the world and put an end to all of those criminal deeds!

So if you're up for a night of stopping scallywags in their tracks, creating a mech-suit so awesome that you'll be the envy of all of your fellow heroic friends and to play some super games, then come join us as we GeekOut together once again!

-----------------------
FOODIE PRE-MEET (YO! Sushi): 12:00-13:50
-----------------------

That's right, we at GeekOut South-West believe in having a good nomming session before we start the night off of fun, games, drinks and great company!

Back we go to YO! Sushi, for some absolutely delicious food and drink before we head on over to the Old Market Tavern. Like sushi? Let us know in the comments if you'll be attending this. If you voted by Sunday 5th, we'll make sure there's space for you!

-----------------------
MAIN EVENT: 2pm-Midnight
-----------------------

Don your spandex outfit, as we're going to need all of the superheroes we can get, as we'll be decorating the pub with heroic decor and plenty of games, as well as getting some superhero inspired arcade games.

This is going to be a night filled with lame hero jokes, lots of comics and games to make them villains say "Stop, I can't take any more! I'll go peacefully! What the heck?! Who pulled all of you superheroes together in one place anyway?"

PLEASE NOTE:

Food & drink can NOT be brought in with you to the Old Market Tavern. If you are caught with food and drink on the premises, you will be asked to leave until you've disposed of your food or drink.

There will be a food menu at Old Market Tavern in the evening! The food is very cheap and it's absolutely delicious! Trust me, I've eaten there enough times... But regulars of the event are also fans of the food there! The food is home made as well, so it's simply scrummy! Food is usually available from 5pm.

-----------------------

We won't be bringing every game from here on in: If there's a specific game you want to see, please let me know in the comments below, before I finish making a real system for this game request feature.

Also, bring along your devices - Quiplash and Drawful 2 are played throughout the day. These are games where you connect with your smartphones or tablets (Or anything that can connect to a browser really). We also sometimes play other games, such as Worms and people with 3DSes can pick up StreetPasses and of course play games with other 3DS players.

-----------------------
BOOK & COMIC SWAP
-----------------------

One of our most unique features is our Book & Comic Swap, a collection of books and comics are strewn across our table in the conservatory available for people to take a book, or to leave a book for others. These are books that have been donated, or are from my old repository. Pick up or borrow a book and get reading!

PLEASE NOTE: Books you saw last month might not be present this month, unless you have a specific request for books. A new request system will be put in place, in case you want a book to be present to take home or just to browse whilst at the GeekOut Bristol Meetup.

-----------------------
COSPLAYERS
-----------------------

Looking for an excuse to don an outfit in March? Great, so are we! Put on your favourite superhero costume and let's go par-tay like the superheroes that you were all born to be!

*CHANGING* If you want to change into a costume when here, please note there's no changing facilities. There are just standard toilet cubicles - Which are fine to change in, but you might want to consider this.

-----------------------
SOCIALISING
-----------------------

We're one of the geekiest events in the South-West. We get people together to play board games and video games, share a pint and discuss what they enjoy in geekdom. Books, comics, music - Anything that you're passionate about, you'll be sure to meet fellow geeks who are into the same thing as you!

We do not discriminate - But if you ever find you have a problem with anything at the event, just let the host (Timlah) know and he'll sort it out!

-----------------------
COMPETITION: A Comic Creation (JUDGING AT 9PM)

Are you a fan of drawing? Perhaps you fancy yourself a bit of a doodler? What about a fully fledged comic book artist? This is the competition for you!

When you come along, you will be supplied with a comic strip. You must design a 4-panel comic strip for submission, to be read, looked through and judged by the whole of the Old Market Tavern!
