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.

Not sure about times on that, will update with it later. In the meantime it’s worth noting that the forum is a great place to finding gaming chums, particularly in the social clubs folder. Currently there’s a call out to find Section 8 players, and a thread about MegaMek, which is a way of playing the Battletech boardgame online. Then there’s the Blood Bowl league, which isn’t looking for sign ups, but is nonetheless in progress and interesting, and a bunch of other things, such as a call out for Rift players. Last, but not least, there’s the ongoing adventures of the community Minecraft server.

Anyone else want to pimp their exploits?

UPDATE: Arma 2 kicking off at 7pm (GMT+1) next Saturday. The ArmA 2 server can be found by filtering games by name for “rock”, password rumpus. Mumble is at port 64738 (config guide at
