Have I got (big) news for you!
Hoodie orders disappear after this coming Sunday (May 10th, orders closing just before midnight), so if you're fretting about what customisation you want, the pressure is now on.
Remember, if you have any questions or problems with ordering, you can contact Benjamin McRae, our lovely treasurer, who'll be able to provide you with any help you need! He's on our Tabletop Discord (
@L0neGamer#6609), and checking our society emails over at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Order here to show your love for this lil’ society.
Save the date!

What happened last week?
Our first Magic: the Gathering draft online was pretty good fun, if I do say so myself. 6 of us turned up to play the new set Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths (there's a lot of monster mash-ups, and Godzilla shows up occasionally. No that's not a joke). Congrats to Alisdair who won with an Abzan cycling/reanimator deck, which, yes, included Godzilla. No, I'm still not joking. If the thought of Godzilla has interested you, we'll be drafting Ikoria again this week, so sign up to join us!
We also conducted our first online public exec meeting! This is your reminder that yes, as a member of the society, you're allowed to drop by exec meetings if you wish. During our meetings, the exec will be chatting in the
exec voice channel in our Tabletop Society Discord, and you can contribute via text in the
#exec text channel! We'll let you know when we're meeting in advance on Discord too.
That's all the news I've got for you this week, so I'm checking out. See you again next week!
Wash your hands, stay inside, and come play some games with us <3
