Alert, Londoners! (And Nearby Counties) RPS Social Club

We have glad news: Tomorrow, the RPS Social Club meet at their regular London haunt, The Blue Posts. You should go. People will greet you. There will be drinks, and there will be merry. It’s at 7pm. Or 4pm, if you want boardgames too

The next one of these will be at the Expo. Bearded men will be there.

    I’ll be there! :D

  2. lordcooper says:

    Y’all should come to Wales. We have pubs too :(

    • Llewyn says:

      You also, in my experience as an Englishman, have pitchforks and flaming torches.

      London is fine, but more notice to concoct a reasonable excuse to be in London would be nice!

      • lordcooper says:

        Speaking as an Englishman living in Wales, pitchforks and torches are pretty rare these days. I’ve only been chased out of a mere two villages by angry mobs!

      • Alexander Norris says:

        To be entirely fair, these are posted in the RPS forum months in advance!

    • Siri says:

      No one’s coming to Wales, ever; the clue is to think of clever ways to attract people who are already in Wales and to gather them all in one pub. Like, for instance, booking a couple of tables somewhere and calling it an RPS Social.

      ‘Game Clubs And General Sociability Ok’ is a good place to start. Just ask if you need advice.

      Good luck!

    So. I have to wonder. Do people turn up to these things and exchange their usernames? If so, are there any embarrassing moments when two guys that had an online bitter flame war last week suddenly realise they are face to face?

    • CrookedLittleVein says:

      That alone would be worth turning up for. I would, If only I wasn’t a socially-maladjusted misfit and a ravenous cannibal.

      Maybe next time.

    • Meat Circus says:

      I always enjoy the embarrassed silence when I flop my pendulous username on the table.

      Cower, mortals, for I am MEEEEEAT CIRRRRCUSSSS.

      • Durkonkell says:

        Is this often followed by “Oh, you’re locals? No, please don’t get up!” or do RPS throw everyone else out for the evening?

        • Llewyn says:

          Ah, takes me back to my MUDding days and our annual large-scale international meet-ups (in the delightful location of Feltham, of all places). The suggestion, once-made, never-repeated, of (character) name badges did not lead to improved relations with the locals.

        • Siri says:

          I forgot to mention, but we’re using the function room upstairs. Very few non-RPS readers there. Follow the smell. MMMmmh.

    • sinister agent says:

      I plan to tell everyone that I’m an Ubisoft rep. In theory, everyone will hit me with sticks. In practice, everyone is British and therefore too polite to say anything.

  4. MeatGrowBrain says:

    Ahh if only it was in Bath, and I wasn’t quite so incredibly idle.

    • westyfield says:

      Please for the love of Horace someone organise one of these in Bath! Some of the RPS team live here so they’d have no good excuse to not attend.

  5. Meat Circus says:

    So, yeah. Skull and Roses. I will own you.

    • Siri says:

      Will you bring it? If so, I might actually sacrifice two hours of sleep to be there at 4.

  6. PitfireX says:

    I need to get out of the damn states and into London!!!

  7. Zugbop says:

    What kind of demographic of people does this usually attract? (Aside from gamers, of course)

    • SuperNashwanPower says:

      Ritualistic Zoroastrian testicle shavers. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum — it’s breathtaking. I suggest you try it.

      Also, white middle class 31 year olds. Called Steve.

      • wyrmsine says:

        I’ve been called that! And I’ve heard good things about those people you said. I should go.

  8. Kyrne says:

    Hmm, really need to go to one of these. Shame its a bit short notice for me. Maybe next time!

  9. The Hairy Bear says:

    I’ll try and make it, would be nice to meet a few people to play some board games with

  10. BestFriends4Ever says:

  11. BestFriends4Ever says:

    Never mind, I’m coming. Who could resist? Who?
