GeekOut Shrewsbury Meet - October, Lycanthropy
18+ event How convenient that this should fall on the week of full moon. Embrace the beast within, it's lycanthropy month, and werebeasties of all breeds are welcome. Check your silver at the door, no entry permitted to vampires or those damn Van Helsing types. ----------------------- PRE-MEET 12:00 Midday (Poll pending) ----------------------- Polling for this months venue will begin on Facebook on the 18th! Be sure to vote or comment if you intend to be there, so we can give the venue an idea of how many to expect. EDIT: We will be at the Boiler Room on Hill's Lane from 12 until about 2. See you there. ----------------------- MAIN EVENT: 14:00 - Midnight ----------------------- Back to Montgomery's tower, and I think we all know what game is going to be seeing the most play time when the theme is Lycanthropy (although new attendees may not be quite so aware, we'll show you). An ever dwindling number of posters remain for purchase at this month's main event. £2 is the requested donation, but you can pay whatever you'd like to keep GeekOut going. ----------------------- TWO SENTENCE HORROR ----------------------- It needn't take a month and three thousand words to write a passable horror, it's possible to write a horror story in only two sentences. Google it! There's loads... Oh, but try not to steal them, because I want you try writing your own two sentence horror story. The best, be it the scariest, cleverest, or otherwise bestest, gets this months' disappointing prize. Second and third places will also be "rewarded". ----------------------- BOARD GAMES ----------------------- On the list this month, the games library will include, but is not limited to: - Braggart - Bucket of Doom - Cards Against Humanity - Cthulhu Dice - DC Deck Builder - Dungeon Roller - Eight Minute Empires - Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards 2 Rumble at Castle Tentakill - Fluxx (assorted) - Kingdomino - Love Letter - Magic: the Gathering - Munchkin - One Night Revolution - Rhino Hero - Saboteur - Tsuro - Welcome To The Dungeon - Werewolf - Zombie Dice More games might appear. ----------------------- VIDEO GAMES ----------------------- Video games as a maybe, although this time I'll be sure to get the projector hooked up early this time so that if we do get around to it we'll be ready. ----------------------- COSPLAY ----------------------- Cosplay is behaviour we condone and encourage at GeekOut events, and remember the more you cosplay the more often others will be encouraged to do so. As it's Halowe'en (and as I was asked nicely) we shall also have a costume competition! More chances for prizes, but as this was uploaded late, you don't have long to get costumed up!

What we're about

For geeks, by geeks. GeekOut West-Midlands is a Geek social group based in Shrewsbury, UK. Looking to meet fellow geeks over a pint, or a meal in pubs and other venues of choice. Events, trips, new friends and geekery abound, GeekOut West-Midlands is looking to meet you!

We're a Social Group

GeekOut started off in Bristol and since inception, people across the UK have been contacting us via email and asking how we got started off. The honest, but hard answer is: We just begun. Someone needs the drive to organise a group to be formed... And thankfully, we stuck it out. Now we're bringing the GeekOut South-West spirit to the West-Midlands. We're about to get all of us to GeekOut together.

We get together once a month as a collection of really nice, friendly people... And we share our geekdoms with one another and indeed others who come to the pub. From board games to comics, cosplay to video games, literature to technology - If it's geeky, we're interested!

We're a Website

We believe in making a difference to geek culture, not just in Bristol or Shrewsbury, but across the UK and indeed the world. Every day, there's a new article on something within geek culture, as well as information about our meetups, our competitions and more.

The website is managed by Timlah, the West-Midlands branch of the GeekOut UK social is me, Joel. You can get in contact with both of us via the website and social media, as well as email. We're an honest bunch who want to expand and make this a bigger, better platform for everyone.
