What we're about

Welcome, fellow travellers to...

https://a248.e.akamai.net/secure.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/3/7/e/1/600_459554305.jpeg

A small oasis for Geeks to meet up and make friends with others who share similar geeky interests. Now if you’ve gotten this far and still haven’t clicked the join button yet, then that might be because you have no idea what a ‘Geek’ is exactly, well let me explain…

You see a Geek is an expert, enthusiast or a person obsessed with a hobby or intellectual pursuit mostly aimed at popular culture (Thanks, Wikipedia). However, there is more to Geeks than meets the eye. You see to me a Geek is a creative genius bordering on insanity and the only way to fend off the madness is by going to see the next Marvel movie or playing copious amounts of video games or even just a quiet night in pretending to be an Elf from Neverwinter.

But because of these interests, we tend to stay indoors a lot as we play Overwatch while watching Game of Thrones that we don’t have the time to venture out into the real world and meet up with people that might want to do the same stuff we do—and that's where we come in.

'The Social Geek' has been designed to help Geeks find new friends to play Overwatch while watching Game of thrones, through the help of social and single oriented events. These events will be marked as (SOCIAL) or (SINGLE) so people will know the aim of these events, such as-

• Drinks

• Lunch/Dinner events

• Movie events

• Board game events

• Video game events

• Book/TV Show/Anime/Comics/Cake clubs

• Conventions

Or just random catch ups to discuss favourite characters THAT SHOULD HAVE NEVER LEFT… I love you David Tennant TT_TT

Well I’ve written too much, but in saying that all are welcome, whether you can list the entire cast of the Justice League, or know one or two DC Superheroes, or have no idea what DC even stands for, as long as you want to meet up with a bunch of friendly weirdos than click join ^_^

Games Night Evolution

Cakes and Ladders

***Important Note:*** Due to current COVID-19 situation, this meetup will be limited to 10 people maximum until further notice. Welcome back to Games Night, where we get together with some old and new friends in order to play a variety of games... and by a variety of games, I mostly mean social deduction games but hey who is complaining. Anyway, I will need to know everyone's level of experience, so when you join you will be asked a question on your level of experience with boardgames on a scale of 1 to 5. 1 – Complete Noob, haven't even touched a die before 2 – Played a few games like Scrabble and Monopoly, does that count? 3 – I know some games, but only played them once or twice. 4 – An experienced gamer, but I don’t think I can actually teach the games to others. 5 – Expert, wouldn’t mind teaching others how to play a couple of games. This is just for me to try and organize groups but mostly what happens is whoever arrives first will be put into group and start playing games straight away. So please arrive at Cakes and Ladders by 7:15, because if you are late you will have to find your own fun. Cheers Chris

Meet and Geek

Chuffed

Hey guys I wanted to start a monthly event where old and new members could come together to meet up and make some new friends over a round of coffee and some geeky chit chat. I think it's quite hard for Geeks to be social especially during these difficult times. But I promise we are a mostly friendly bunch as long as you agree with our taste in movies and video games. So yeah if this sounds like something you'd be interested in click join today cause I've limited this event to ten people but if it becomes popular I'll increase the dosage. Cheers Chris
