18+ event

Pre-Christmas gaming anyone? One last moment to relax amid the chaos, and maybe you can duck out for an hour or so and tick another name off the gift list, or just sit and play while you get ideas for the other geeks in your life. This'll be a GiftWrapped GeekOut.
-----------------------
PRE-MEET 12:00 Midday (Poll pending)
-----------------------
The venue chosen by you for the half dozen or so folks that turn up early to get a few games and a bit of light conversation in before the rest of the day turns to madness and beautiful chaos. The poll will be up on Thursday the 13th, not too far away...

EDIT: Pre-Meet results are conclusive, see you at the Boiler Room
-----------------------
MAIN EVENT: 14:00 - Midnight
-----------------------
No competition this month! This is a season of joy and togetherness, why would I drive you apart by pitching you into contests in which winning and losing means the difference between... well winning and losing, and there's the prizes too I guess?
We'll be free to game in peace, I might even get to join in a bit this month. Come join us at Montgomery's Tower to game late into the night.
-----------------------
SUPER SECRET SANTA
-----------------------
The Rules:
£5 spending limit. Bring a present, add it to the pile, and if you put one it you'll get to take one out before you leave.
Remember you're not buying for anyone in particular, you're just buying for nerds, so that should make things a little easier, right?
-----------------------
THE RESOLUTIONS BOX
-----------------------
Were you at January's GeekOut? Well then do I have a surprise for you, because that box of resolutions you all put into, the one that's covered in names, that's been sat on a shelf all year just WAITING for this moment.
The greatest gift of all is your own shame, let us unwrap it together.
-----------------------

VIDEO GAMES
-----------------------
Maybe, it seems there's less demand for the video game side of things than there is for - say - werewolf, or for Harley to bring the Harry Potter deck builder (you know who you are) but I'll bring along the laptop, I'm feeling like a game or two of Worms right now.

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.
