TERM 1 WEEK 17 NEWSLETTERHello,We are sitting in that sweet spot of term where most of the exams have finished but it’s early enough that you don’t have to worry about this terms work. So why not use all that free time to enjoy the events provided by your favourite society?ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING (AGM)Week 8As the weeks tick on, you will start to see this section get more and more serious since – in accordance with SU regulations - you really need to make sure you have been a member for at least 2 weeks before the AGM to be eligible to vote and run. If you are considering running for a role then don’t hesitate to contact the current exec member as they will be able to offer lots of great advice as well as give an overview of the responsibilities expected.WARGAMINGMonday 17:00 to 22:00, B2.01 Science ConcourseWith multiple new faces at wargames last week it’s great to see its popularity is still rising in term 2. And if you are interested in trying out one of the many systems we play then don’t forget we have an extensive collection of society armies for you to choose from, so you really have no excuse for not turning up. You can even use our Facebook group to arrange a game.MAGIC: THE GATHERINGTuesday 18:00 to 22:00, B2.01 Science ConcourseWe will be drafting Rivals of Ixalan this week, and with that comes all the excitement of a new set. With only a sketchy pick order and most the architypes still to be discovered, true skill will be put to the test as those with a keen eye for card evaluation will prevail. As always draft is £8 with a reduction of £2 per booster you supply and starts at 19:00.BOARDGAMESWednesday 14:00 to 22:00, B2.02 Science ConcourseBack to normal for boardgames this week, so it’s time to see who the real boardgames lovers are and who just turned up for free pizza and chocolate. There have also been multiple requests to get a game of diplomacy going, but due to its long nature it’s been hard to find players on the day. So, may I suggest using our boardgames Facebook group to arrange a time that is good for everyone before the event, as it would be great to see this amazing game get played.CASUAL CARD GAMESThursday 16:00 to 22:00, B2.04/5 Science ConcourseWith a new set release comes a bunch of sweet new cards to add to your commander decks, and what better place to test those decks out than casual card games. If Magic isn’t your thing then why not get some games of Android Netrunner or Yu-Gi-Oh in instead, Thursdays really do have it all.TABLETOP ROLEPLAYING GAMESSaturday 12:00 to 22:00, Meeting in the Social Sciences CaféAnother week and another new RPG has popped up on our websites event page. This time it’s a Call of Cthulhu game set in the fictional city of Arkham and with only two spaces left you better be quick. For those of you brave individuals who are preparing to run a campaign or one-shot then don’t hesitate to post it on the website’s events page, and you can even contact me directly to get it advertised in next weeks newsletter.LIVE ACTION ROLEPLAYINGSunday 12:00 to 18:00, OC0.06 OculusWell the weather finally defeated the LARPers, as last weeks LARP took place in the sanctuary of OC0.05. So, in order to make sure that our LARPers are never defeated by anything again, we had a weapons training session with special guest Robert. I’m sure you can’t wait to put your new skills to the test on Sunday.WEEKLY NEWSOne Wednesday we were joined by our sponsors TPP at our regular boardgames session.
