18+ event

Media has changed! With the rise of online streaming services it's time to celebrate some of the quality content that's killing television, hopefully for good. Join us as we talk YouTube, Netflix, Prime, and - sure, let's include Spotify. Places where the little guy has a better chance to rise alongside the mighty studios.

And it's a quiz month!
-----------------------
PRE-MEET 12:00 Midday (Poll pending)
-----------------------
The poll will be posted on Facebook, on the 22nd to determine where we go to grab a quick cake and a coffee before moving on to the main event at Monty's.

Edit: Off The Square have been warned of our approach!
-----------------------
MAIN EVENT: 14:00 - Midnight
-----------------------
A new game hits our library this month: Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards, Annihilageddon. Not yet available for purchase! It won't be released for a few weeks, potentially months, but being at Gen Con this year affords one special privileges.

Otherwise expect the same array of gaming and socialising you've come to expect and enjoy... and of course the quiz you all dread.
-----------------------
THE BIG GEEK PUB QUIZ (19:30)
-----------------------
Swat up on your media knowledge, binge watch, empty out your Watch-Later list, and indulge your need to consume the media of the world. If you are to stand a chance at the disappointing prizes then you have a lot of work to do.

Remember, teams of no more than three, although you can go it alone if you're feeling really brave, and an extra point given for best team name.

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.
