    Online event

    All real-life GeekstraVEGANza events are obviously on hold for the time being, but that doesn't mean we can't have fun playing board/card games together! We'll try to play as many of our favourites as possible, using their online versions in conjunction with Zoom* voice/video chat. Open Zoom via this link: https://zoom.us/j/8028676591?pwd=RzRldzJQQnVNODF3cEFPblh5MkNjdz09 (or if you need to type it: https://bit.ly/OnlineGeekstraveganza) We usually start by playing a simple game (e.g. Codenames) all together, but after that we split into multiple different rooms to play other games with a smaller number of players. Join us whenever you like, stay as long as you want: new games will be starting as people come in, with often one or two that can be joined at any given time. The hosts can introduce you to other attendees, if you like, and we all are always happy to teach newcomers how to play a game. If it's your first time, please read the rules of engagement before joining: https://bit.ly/WelcomeToGeekstraVEGANza We also have a Discord* server that we use for general chat, to arrange games in advance, share links etc. It's not required to be on it in order to attend the online event, but it will definitely help!

Everyone is welcome, just bring yourself, a suggestion for the next book and a desire to eat some yummy food. If you've actually read this month's book, even better!

List of all books past and present: https://goo.gl/wNZ6WF
