London Gamer Geeks Night 5: The August Edition

by danhon

Tomorrow night is the fifth London Gamer Geeks night!

Last time, we had a quiz where we had questions like this:

  • Name four games with titles that begin with the words: “Sid Meier’s” (we’re not counting sequels)
  • In what game is a Dreamcast used a zombie-killing weapon?
  • What year was Duke Nukem Forever first announced?

The quiz was amusing, partly because we discovered that Lee and Tom shouldn’t be allowed to be on the same team, and we couldn’t even give away our prize (a Collector’s Edition of Guild Wars Nightfall, helpfully donated by NCSoft) because the winning team are all Mac/Linux heads.I haven’t done a proper write-up of the last meet because I’ve been doing things like gardening and moving house. But I’ve moved house now, and I’ve finished gardening, so it’s all good.

James says that there’s a chance we might be running a revised quiz, but it doesn’t look like we’ve quite gotten around to that yet. I have finished Burnout Revenge, though.

You can find the details at upcoming, but here’s a blockquote for old time’s sake:

A motley and muttley collection of gamers from every ilk and whim of the field (from ARGs and RPGs to PS3s and Ninty Wiis, and also pool because there’s a pool table) gather downstairs at the College Arms to chat, compare, discuss, show off, swap and sometimes actually play stuff. Turn up, introduce yourself, bring something curious, and have something interesting to say.

Likely topics of discussion this month: what impact D&D4e will have; just how bad the English-language rules for Puerto Rico are; is Bioshock as good as the demo suggests it may be; and can I join your WoW guild?

There may be a games quiz. If there is a quiz, there may be prizes.

Tomorrow,  from about 6:30pmish at The College Arms, downstairs. Be there or be a GSCube!
