What we're about

This a group for gamers who like to play and discuss games that are story-driven, artistic or just not the run-of-the-mill shooters. Everything from AAA games to indies, to consoles to mobile, we discuss the finer themes in gaming and gaming culture. Plus we have a Discord channel: https://discord.gg/zTJus5x

We meet in random coffee houses/public spaces throughout Orange County. Past events have included: escape rooms, gaming conventions, concerts, discussion groups and much more. There is usually at least one meetup scheduled per month.

If you have ideas for a meetup or event you would like to see, or would like to host an event please message the leadership team.

Important Group Info

No-Shows: It takes a lot to host events and we have limited spaces for some of them, so it doesn't help when members take up available spaces and don't show up. Members who are marked "no-shows" 3 times are removed. A "no-show" is anyone who RSVPs to an event and doesn't show up. To avoid being a no-show, simply change RSVP to "not going" or notify group/event host that you cannot make it.

Meetup Fees: MeetUp charges admin fees to run a group ($15/month). I have been paying out of my pocket for a few years and few hundred dollars in the process. Unfortunately, starting July 2019, I will be unable to pay 100% of the fees myself. I would like to keep the group running, but MeetUp shuts down groups who don't pay the fees. Since I don't charge fees for events, I welcome any and all donations (of any amount): https://secure.meetup.com/vgbookclub/contribute/
