Welcome! 

Based in York, this is a group created for lovers of video gaming, comic books, tabletop games, anime or whatever your geeky flair may be to come together regularly to hang out, game, go to cons and just meet like minded people in a comfortable casual environment.

We are a pretty new group and really want everyone who joins to find something they want to get involved in and find new friends to geek out with about your favourite show, game or hobby. Feel free to post your own ideas and event recommendations.

FAQ

Is there a fee to join?

Nope. The group is free to join and we won't ever charge you to come along and hangout - however different events may have different costs e.g your own food and drink, contribution to venue charges, tickets etc. If there are ever any charges at a particular event this will be detailed on the event page.


Can I plan my own event?

Sure, if you want to organise your own event, just message us Organizers and we can set you up with the right access to do so. All we ask is you don't charge members unless for the aforementioned reasons, be based in York  (if not for a specific event/con etc) and of course other social to do's such as fair notice of cancellation, clear planning etc.


Current Regular & Ongoing Meetups:

Boardgame Night - A regular Meetup every Wednesday at OG Games to hangout and play some boardgames.

Monthly Meetup - The final Saturday of the month we meet up at Brigante's Bar in York in our private lair. Bring along your own consoles/games - whatever you'd like to play. A fun, informal hangout to create a good platform for new members and everyone to get to know each other and for everyone to get together once a month and play some games.

RPG Party - Held every fortnight on a Thursday at The Yorkshire Terrier on Stonegate. Check out the calendar for updates on the campaigns.

Nerdflix - Cinema meetups to get our geeky film fixes. Aiming for central locations of Cityscreen or Reel (film depending) on either Tuesdays and Wednesdays. 

Let's Get Graphic: Nerdy Book Club - Just starting out this club will focus on a new comic, graphic novel or manga once a month to discuss and pick apart. Ideal for the seasoned comic book connoisseur or if you just want to try them out, all are welcome.

Events - LAN Parties, Cons, Gaming Tournaments etc and things that require a bit of extra planning will be added to the calendar to get dates set and arrangements made for these. Reguarly occuring events are Pokémon Tournaments and Hearthstone Fireside Gatherings.
