RPS Community Update: What You Did in Blood Bowl 2, Pen And Paper Games, PlanetSide 2 And More

Image by moms.

October is when the nights draw in and evenings are best spent gathered around a fire, playing board games. Or hunched in front of a monitor, playing on Roll20.

On the other hand, what better way to warm up than with big gatherings of the community – either online or off? Read on to find out what we’ve been up to in Blood Bowl 2 [official site], pen and paper games, PlanetSide 2 [official site], real life and more.

The RPS Social Club: Friday, 14th August In Brighton

RPS Social Clubs are reader-organised events meant for the merriment of all who call themselves friends of Horace. We occasionally highlight such events here on the main page and we’d like to do so more often. Below, a write-up by Ben Meredith, organiser of June’s Brighton social, with details of where the troop will be assembling next on August 14th. Want to host your own? Let us know.

Picture the scene. A pub. Brighton. The smell of freshly poured ale and a wisp of smoke from the beer garden. A man, me, sits with trepidation, cursing the fact that he’d left the sign he printed out at home and hastily scribbling “RPS Social in here” on a scrap of paper, torn from an old notebook.

On Saturday the London RPS Social Club is gathering at is usual haunt, The Blue Posts on Rupert Street near Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square.

Season’s Meetings: RPS Social Club

It’s that time of year again. Time to retreat indoors with a mug of mulled wine and scoff a Christmas pud. You could even make the witticisms rain by pulling a cracker or two. While you can chug the wine and eat the pudding on your lonesome, you’ll need companions to pull those crackers, and who better than the readers of RPS? They’re gathering in London this Saturday evening at The Blue Posts on Rupert Street (map in that link). I can’t promise crackers but there will be good times, drinks and boardgames. Discuss attendance and arrival times in this forum thread.

People of Not London and the North, you may find something of interest below.

Something For The Weekend: RPS Social Club

A card as elegant as ivory flutters across the ballroom, caressed by a hundred fingertips as it makes its way to the periphery of the room, where you stand, watching and waiting. For me, the crinkling of your brow speaks the query that your lips cannot. Even the gentle rustle of a bustle is capable of distracting the Duke from the strings that he so inexpertly scrapes. To escape from the dreariness of this corseted formality would be splendid. Perhaps the card that you now hold offers an alternative:

This Saturday from 7PM at The Blue Posts, London, will be host to a gathering of splendid people. Games of Gin Rummy, Whist and Cosmic Encounter may occur. Suggestions and enquiries should be directed t’ward The Forum.

How radiant!

Staying Out For The Summer: RPS Social Club

I have been a terrible host. The RPS Social Club has continued its regular meetings these past months but I have neglected to inform the wider community. Blame inconveniently timed press trips. Blame erratic sleep patterns. Blame the loss of my Debrett’s pocketbook.

The time for revelry and social gaming (of the good sort) has arrived once more, however, and I’m on the case this time. The London RPS Social Club are gathering in their usual haunt tomorrow evening, The Blue Posts, and there is talk of outdoor hijinks in a park beforehand to take advantage of the glorious weather. Discuss the matter within this forum thread. As always, if you’re planning a gathering in your area, let me know and I’ll include it in a round-up of RPS happenings next month.

London Calling: RPS Social Club This Saturday

The sun is shining, at least for now, and Blighty is bathed in light and warmth. A perfect time to adopt the flamboyant gait of a flâneur while perusing the streets of your local metropolis. If your stroll takes you through old London town, it’d be a fine idea to end it at The Blue Posts, where the good people of the RPS Social Club will be meeting for boardgames, drinks and chatter from around 7pm. Should you wish to know more, the forum thread is a fine place to go and talk to other attendees about your plans. Let people know what games you might bring or simply request a glass of hearty stout to be prepared in time for your arrival. And have an excellent time.

The infinite flanks of RPS are bringing a unique brand of revelry to Britain’s major cities this weekend. One day, RPS Social Clubs shall sprout up in every town, village and hamlet, but for now we’re limiting our good times to Birmingham and London.
