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/tYENSSXBZN

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.

Donations: MeetUp charges admin fees to run a group (about $16/month). If you would like to donate to the group to keep it going, please use my Venmo: https://venmo.com/Saneeya-Khan

Silent Hill 4 - Part 2

Needs a location

On Discord.

A room full of nightmares….

Henry Townshend finds himself trapped in his apartment and the only escape is through a mysterious portal that leads to a horrifying reality. With gruesome sights around every corner and his sanity being tested, he must find his way out of this nightmare.

Group Let's Play - Life is Strange: True Colors

Laguna Hills

Hey everyone, we're going to be playing the newest Life is Strange game, Life is Strange: True colors. Like previous LiS games, you'll have to deal with supernatural powers while making critical choices, and (as always) a lot of teen angst.

As usual, we'll pass the controller around during our playthrough. We'll have food and drinks, so feel free to bring something to share with the group.

*Note: The game runs about 8 hours, so we're probably not going to be able to finish it. I can schedule a part 2 either in person again or complete it via stream.

About the game:
https://lifeisstrange.square-enix-games.com/en-us/games/life-is-strange-true-colors/

Alex Chen hides her 'curse': the supernatural ability to absorb and manipulate the strong emotions of others. When her brother dies in a so-called accident, she must embrace her volatile power to find the truth — and reveal dark secrets buried by the town.

Deep in the mountains of Colorado, you'll find Haven Springs, a small mining town filled with beauty and mystery. As Alex, you'll discover the shocking secrets behind your brother’s death in an emotional roller-coaster of an adventure, using your psychic power of Empathy to change fate and change lives.

How to Host an Event on MeetUp

Online event

Ever wanted to play a video/board game, but didn't have enough people? Or just wanted to socialize with people who have similar interests/hobbies? Now's your chance to reach out to members by hosting an event.

I'm looking for people to host events in an effort to expand group activities and take some of the load off me. I know hosting an event is daunting but I’m here to show you some tips and tricks on how to do it. Here are some ideas for potential events:

• Game Streams
• Virtual board game/tabletop RPG night
• Movie Night using Netflix Party/something similar
• Trivia
• Any online game you want more people for
• Virtual scavenger hunt/escape room
• Casual hangouts/happy hours

The possibilities are endless and you can use our discord channel (https://discord.gg/cepsWGbnam) or any other online chat platform. Best of all, posting an even will cost you nothing and you have access to a member pool of a few hundred people. So there is a good chance you will be able to find at least a few people for your event.

If you have an idea/activity you've always wanted to do with others, please post below or reach out to me.

I will help you by:
• Explaining the logistics
• Co-host your first event

Hosting events will help you gain confidence, social and leadership skills, and expand your network. If you have any questions, please let me know :)
