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.

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!
