    The RPS Social Club - Brighton

    Speculative interest post for seaside-based, RPS-related, booze-assisted shenanigans! Speak up here if you're interested in attending.

    I will try to make it along myself (it depends on quite how exhaustingly manic my toddler is come the day, basically), but in the meantime a couple of other chaps are going to do the heavy lifting of organising and will be along to start that shortly.

    I'm one of those idio... volunteers. We'll gauge numbers and arrange a venue accordingly, any suggestions for venues are welcome but we're leaning towards The Fountain Head on North Road as long as there aren't too many of us.

    A resident of Brighton I am, I'm sure my lovely wife might also be interested.
    I'm a bit shit at the whole "socialising in a pub" thing though.

    I imagine a variety of games can be brought to help ease people into talking to strangers. I've got Fluxx, which is always a fun ice-breaker.

    Hello! I am Lazytechsupport's lovely wife and long time reader, first time commenter here at RPS. :)

    I am absolutely up for Brighton-based shenanigans, especially of the potentially board game playing variety. I can keep an eye out for venues as well (there's a pub near the station that had a nice, quiet room upstairs that's hosted a few Nanorimo meetups, I think it's the Duke's Head?) and will keep you posted.

    Can't wait!

    I can, come hang around at the back, not a resident of Brighton but hopefully no one will hold it against me that I'm from elsewhere actually.

    This would be awesome. I'd love to be within a short train ride of one of these things.

    Oh look a thing, I'm a brighton peep.

    There is a general weekly boardgame meetup at the caxton arms (a couple of mins walk from brighton station) on wednesdays full of lovely friendly people (and also me). As well as various other boardgame nights there, I run the tuesday netrunner night.

    Huge collection of boardgames between us and I know a few others are in various RPS or other gaming communities.

    http://www.meetup.com/Brighton-Pub-Boardgamers/

    Other than that I am happy to pop down to any other meetup shenanigans that might be happening :]

    Ooh excellent! That brings another topic up that I wanted to address: which day is likely to be best for people? Do we want to try a Friday/Saturday or is a school night preferred?

    I live in Hove! I'm down for shenanigans, always good to meet new peeps.

    OK! Looks like we have enough people for a decent gathering of chums. The first social shall be 7p.m. Friday 10th October at the Fountain Head.

    If you can't make it, don't fret! We'll be having another gathering soon enough, but if you have any feedback or preferred times, whack them up on here. No point in having a social if no-one's able to turn up!

    Lovely to see there's a meet up for us crusty seaside leveller-types. I mainly just lurk about on RPS but it's great to meet new people and Friday suits me so will try to come along!

    I'm moving to Brighton in a week or two (job has already started so currently driving between Leeds and Brighton every monday and friday until I can move in). Looking forward to the next social event when I should be able to come (rather than being stuck in a jam up the M1 at that time)

    My brother and I are hoping to come this weekend. Just moved down to Brighton from Cambridgeshire (me) and London (him) so looking forward to meeting some new people.

    I can't make this one but I'm a Hastings-er myself and used to work Brighton way so it's totally doable for me normally! I should be able to do future ones if this is repeated!

    I'm in Bexhill right now, but there's a good chance I'll end up in St Leonards before long, so chalk up another for the southeast. I think I'll try to catch a train over to Brighton on Friday, but people terrify me, so that may not happen.

    Is it worth considering something like facebook links, or indeed a facebook group?
    I'd kick that off, but I don't actually have an active facebook profile because the idea fills me with stygian dread, so... yeah.

    If I dare to leave the cramped comfort of my dark, dingy flat I'll definitely be there. Not sure how I'm supposed to recognise you lot though.

    Hurrah! Looking forward to meeting people tomorrow, I will bring some fluxx to icebreak if we want it too. Just so we don't have to stand around awkwardly clutching our pints ^^ Those of you who can't make it this time, looking forward to seeing you next time!
