Hello,After the success of the AGM, and with the successors to the current exec elected, we are straight back into all the events you know and love, as well as some extra special ones for the end of term.END OF TERM TABLETOP WEEKENDSaturday 10th of March 10:00 to Sunday 11th of March 22:00, B2.02 Science ConcourseIt’s Tabletop Weekend 2, the long awaited sequel to the critically acclaimed Tabletop Weekend. From the early previews critics are already praising its daring decision to expertly blend boardgames, card games, wargames, and RPGs. The explosive LARP finally is also set to excite fans of the genre, this really is going to be the best event of the year so far. https://www.facebook.com/events/199501077450511/EASTER QUIZFriday the 9th of March, 18:00 to 20:00, OC1.01 Oculus BuildingReady to test your knowledge against your fellow society members? Then make sure and head to our quiz this Friday where we will put you to the test over 6 rounds covering a range of different aspects of the society and beyond with the chance to win some fabulous prizes. After this there will then be an even more important bonus round and even better prizes to reward the team with the best critical thinking. We will also be headed to the pub afterwards for an end-of-term social. https://www.facebook.com/events/173683956603303/MURDER MYSTERYFriday the 16th of March, 18:00 to 22:00, S0.11 Social Sciences BuildingAfter the murder mystery proved to be the victim itself after it was so cruelly murdered by the weather on Friday, we have rescheduled it to Friday week 10. If you were down to be a suspect then make sure and contact either Naomi or James and let them know whether you can make it or not. https://www.facebook.com/events/936328179870301/WARGAMESMonday 17:00 to 22:00, B2.01 Science ConcourseUnfortunately our Wargames rep for life, James Sampson-Foster had to rescind his motion to officially become the New Rob. However, in the eyes of the wargames faithful he already holds this title. So make sure and turn up on Monday to show support to New Rob and help him in his quest against the evil Wyrm Geedubya.MAGIC: THE GATHERINGTuesday 18:00 to 22:00, B2.01 Science ConcourseI picked a card from packs gone byWhen hope was high and cards worth pickingI dreamed my creatures would never dieI dreamed that pack 2 would be forgivingWhen I was in pack 1 and unafraidAnd picks were made and used and wastedThere was no colours to be tied toNo signal unread, no archetype untestedBut the end of pack dregs come at nightWith their rules so bad they mock youAs they tear your deck apartAs they turn your draft to shameHe drafted pack 1 by my rightHe filled my deck with endless wonderHe took my playables in his strideBut he was gone when pack 2 cameAnd still I dream about pack 3That we will end the draft togetherBut there are dreams that cannot beAnd there are hate drafts I cannot weatherI had a dream my deck would beSo different from this garbage I'm draftingSo different now from what it seemedNow life has killed the draftI draftedWe’ll be drafting Rivals of Ixalan again this week with the usual £8 buy in (reduced by £2 for every pack supplied yourself) with a final registration of 18:30.BOARDGAMESWednesday 14:00 to 22:00, OC1.01 Oculus BuildingWe finally let our President (we can now official call him that!) Nigel be the forensic scientist again in Deception after some disastrous attempts and it’s fair to say he redeemed himself. Not only was the murderer caught but they were caught on the first guess. This Wednesday we will be back to normal with the full 8 hours of Boardgames to wet your appetite for the coming weekend.CASUAL CARD GAMESThursday 16:00 to 22:00, WA1.15 Avon Building (Westwood Campus)THE KING IS DEAD! With the motion to split casual card games from draft we no longer have an all-powerful king of card games. It’s time to rejoice that the tyrannical reign of Roff is nearly at an end and soon everyone will be free to play Commander, Netrunner, or Yu-Gi-Oh to their hearts content.TABLETOP ROLEPLAYING GAMESSaturday 12:00 to 22:00, Meeting in the Social Sciences CaféOnly a few more Saturdays until the end of term, so here’s hoping you campaigns are reaching an appropriable epic conclusion or at least setting up for a grand finally in term 3. If you are planning on running any games in term 3 then don’t hesitate in getting them on our events page as it’s never too early.LIVE ACTION ROLEPLAYINGSunday 12:00 to 18:00, OC1.01 Oculus BuildingThis week saw the party attempt to free Henri Simnel of The Master’s influence by removing a raven necklace from him. After removing the last of the influence from him they discovered that he was in fact planning to build a device to defog the southlands. So, make sure and turn up next week to find out what happens next.WEEKLY NEWSAfter the success of this Wednesdays AGM I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the exec who worked tremendously hard over the past year to make everything we have achieved possible, and to welcome in the new exec who I’m sure will continue to carry out the great work - all the great work - while improving the society even further.
