What we're about

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/gamedevlunch/

Why not grab some lunch with fellow developers / designers / artists all interested in Game Development?

Get out of the office, talk about what you're working on (Unless its NDA'ed or breaking contract!) and have a chat with others with similar mindsets.

Bring your laptop along if you'd like to show off what you've made!

-Quick Info-

Date: We meet on the Last Thursday of the Month

Time: 12:30~2:30pm

Venue: Pancras Square Library, 5 Pancras Rd, Kings Cross, London N1C 4AG (Entrance is next to the Youtube Store)

----------

-General Info/ FAQ / Group Etiquette-

• How do I get to the venue?
The closest Tube station is King's Cross / St Pancras station which is on the Northern, Victoria, Piccadilly, Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines. Pancras Square library is less than a minute walk away.

• Where are you located?
Keep an eye out for the huge 'CAMDEN' sign by the entrance located next to the Youtube Store on Pancras Road. Once through the doors, pass the reception area for the Leisure Centre and up the stairs into another reception area. To your left is a little cafe space and some long green tables behind that. Look out for the reserved signs on the long green tables!

• Can I come earlier / stay longer?
Yes! The 12:30~2:30pm timing is just a formality I have with the library. You are free to use the library facilities as you wish. Please keep in mind to keep the area relatively tidy and quiet. We sometimes grab coffee and cake afterwards!

• There is an indoor cafe which sells tea, coffee, hot drinks, snacks and small selection of hot food here.

• Can I bring my own lunch / food from outside?
Yes! Due to people having various dietary requirements, you are allowed to bring in outside food. There are a range of food places around the area. Please note, no alcoholic drinks are allowed. Again, please keep it tidy.

• Who can come?
EVERYONE! Seriously! We are located in a public library so there are several car parks around and disability access to the library. We are also open for parents with young children, students and people with financial difficulties since we do not charge for our lunch meet ups. The library is also relatively quiet and in a non intensive environment. Please also note that the bathrooms are gendered.

• Donations
Please consider donating at least £1 to the group's donation pot. Funds raised will be used to cover the cost of using Meetup.com's services which is £12 a month. Excess donations will be used to cover the next 6 month period and/or special events.

Online donations can be done via Jade (JDWasabi)'s Ko-Fi account (https://ko-fi.com/jdwasabi) (which goes straight to my Paypal account anyway). Remember that Paypal charges an extra 2.9% + $0.30 so please take this into consideration if you want to donate a specific amount to the group!

• Will you do evening or weekend meet ups?
We are in the process of doing special/bigger evening events soon! It's taken a little while due to the face that I (the Organiser) is usually busy over the evenings and weekends so it's not currently possible to do regular events. We are also looking for venue spaces that are relatively quiet and accessible which is tricky to find for evening/weekends. If you know of any good places, do let us know!

Please keep an eye out for updates in the meantime :)

• My question isn't answered :(
Please tweet me @JDWasabi (https://twitter.com/jdwasabi) and I will get back to you soon! :D
