What we're about

Welcome, fellow travellers to...

https://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 ^_^

Spellbound Games Night

Needs a location

Hey guys, join us as we make some new friends over some board games at Spellbound games.

Spellbound has a decent selection of games but it would be awesome if you could bring your own, doesn't matter how old school it is, always keen for a round of monopoly.

It costs $3 dollars per person to attend this event, so please come along with $3 in cash or you can transfer to my bank account down below.

Also, check out our Facebook page for more boardgame events at Spellbound or around South Auckland.

Dinner, Drinks and Games Night!

Needs a location

Guidelines for this event may change based on covid-19 regulation updates from the government.

**Make sure to answer this event's question, as I need to make booking for exact number of people on Saturday. In case, if there is additional space, it can be filled by people on the waiting list.

Also, if you wanna just attend for board games, that's fine too. Just make sure to let me know by answering this event's question. Thanks!**

Hey everyone!

The time has arrived for another evening of Dinner, Board Games and Drinks! The plan is to meetup for dinner, drinks and socializing at
Ruang Thong Thai Canteen on Symonds street at 5:30 PM and then, head off to Cakes and Ladders at 6:25 PM for some board gaming action.

After jamming board games until 9:30 PM, we will head off to a bar nearby to have some drinks and banter. The Corner Store Bar, which is 5 minutes away on foot from Cakes & Ladders.

RSVP and come on over. Have a good meal, get acceptably intoxicated (optional), make new friends (and old!) and play some games!

Other details:

  • Cakes & Ladders is a few meters away from the restaurant on the opposite side of the street.
  • Cakes & Ladders charges $3 an hour.
  • To support this awesome board gaming place, go ahead and order something to drink or eat. (Optional)
  • Make sure to bring in your identity proof along with you. Either Passport or NZ Driver's license. Physical copy is required and digital copies will not be accepted at bars and Clubs.
  • Finally, for whatever reason, if you RSVP and can no longer make it to the event, change your RSVP by Friday 10 PM so that people on the wait list can fill your space instead. No-Show members will be marked accordingly and potentially banned from future events.

If you are lost or unable to find the group, text or call me on[masked] and I will be happy to help out. See you all then!

Join us on facebook for more events related to game nights, movies, sci-fi and socializing. https://www.facebook.com/groups/SocialGeekNZ/

Games Night Evolution

Needs a location

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.

P.S CAKES AND LADDERS CHARGES $3 AN HOUR TO PLAY AND USE THEIR VENUE.

Cheers
Chris
