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.

Hear Ye: Rezzed And London Drinks This Weekend

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. The former is host to Rezzed, where Graham and I will be seeking the popular vote by shaking hands with babies and kissing local dignitaries on the jowl. If you are visiting on the Saturday, or happen to be in the vicinity of Birmingham, do join us for drinks. As for London, it’s the monthly meet-up at The Blue Posts. More details on both below.

Attention, London: RPS Social Club This Weekend

The monthly meeting of the London branch of the RPS Social Club is set to take place this Saturday at The Blue Posts, a convival spot suitable for games of card, board and dice, the meeting of good spirits, and the imbibing of good spirits (also beers, cider, soft drinks and tea). If you’d like to discuss your fashionably timed arrival with other members of the RPS community, this particular forum thread is the best place to discuss such things. I see that somebody is planning to take Cosmic Encounter along, which is a fine treat, but I would suggest that at least one person take a set of Tiddlywinks and a 14th Century Halatafl set. More Social Club news below.

Hark: RPS Manchester Social And Gamejam This Saturday

This weekend, Manchester’s MadLab will play host to a two-day Ludum Dare gamejam. The capacity has just been doubled so tickets are still available and if the chance to make games, share ideas and learn isn’t enough of an incentive to show up, read on. Last year, around this time, I organised a Manchester RPS social event in Terrace, the bar next door to MadLab, and the same shall occur this Saturday, from around 3pm right through into the night. Whether you’re at the gamejam or not, it would be lovely to see you. Details below.

Attention Citizens: RPS Social Club Convenes Tomorrow

The monthly RPS Social ClubRPS Social Club meetup will take place at The Blue Posts this weekend, as tradition dictates, but the gathering will be tomorrow night rather than Saturday. If you are in London or a nearby county, this would be a fine way to avoid the hurly-burly of Christmas shopping and to shelter from winter’s bite. The meeting is scheduled to begin at eight but if you’re anything like me, you’ll pop onto the forums and arrange to meet before that for a nip of brandy. The Blue Posts is located on Rupert Street, near to Chinatown and Leicester Square, as shown on the map in the link above.

Now, people of Manchester and thereabouts, join me below. The rest of you stay out.

Japes And Jaunts: RPS Social Club This Saturday

As well as games and controllers with glowing blue bits and touchscreens on them, the world contains people. The vast majority of those people read RPS and, it would appear, so do you! That means you all have something in common, so why not meet up at The Blue Posts if you are in London or the vicinity? Folk will be gathering there this Saturday, from 6PM until midnight. Head to the forums to plan and post-mortem the experience. The London folks are very organised and have a full list of dates for meet-ups, which is below. Think last Saturday of every month and you won’t go far wrong. Being Mancunian, I’m much less organised, but I’ll sort something soon.
