    Hey y'all!

    as was discussed over the past couple of meets, if we was to do a meet-up this month, it would fall just after xmas/before new years!
    as most of us would are busy with xmas/new years, visiting family etc, we're moving it a week after into the new year, so...
    "Saturday, 5th, January 2019"
    will be our next official meet-up.
    mite catch some January sales as well maybe?

    There will still be the normal meet-up at the end of January too, so that would be.
    "Saturday, 26th, January 2019"

    Soo that's two meet-up's in January!
    then the back to the usual, Last Saturday of the Month, Every Month!

    The other option was a week before, but it was pretty much unanimous that a week after into the new years was easier for more of us.

    See Y'all in the new years!
    Unless we see ya sooner!

    Howdy & Happy New Years to Y'all! [​IMG]

    Hope the new year is treating you all well so far? [​IMG]
    So tomorrow is our 1st meet of the new years, as we didn't have one last month, with it being so close after Xmas, & before new years eve/day.
    Meet will start as per norm, meet at the station between 11:00/12:00, and do the standard window shopping merch hunting!
    With the new years comes new places, instead of just floating between random places with room, cafes/pubs every meet like we have been doing since Cafe Lux closed... [​IMG]
    We finally may have stable hangout! ( pun intended )
    As I type this, I am actually sat down there!
    So, we have tables reserved in Bean-Gaming [​IMG]
    Booking is down as "Leicester Bronies"
    We can either have a couple of the booths, or the upstairs seating area! ( Depending on numbers, or where we prefer. )
    They have a large selection of games, if anypony fancies, otherwise we are welcome to just sit chill and socialise.
    ( we can play our own games as well, CCG players? MLP Monopoly if anyone has it? etc! )
    Love to see how everypony finds the place, but will be nice to have a place we know we can go to! [​IMG]
    A few of us have been already, many many times.
    They are situated just across from Forbidden Planet!
    Here: Bean-Gaming 22 Silver Street LE1 5ET
    so right in the centre of town too.
    Looking forward to seeing those of you that shall be in attendance tomorrow! [​IMG]
    Have a good evening, and see y'all tomorrow!

    Everything should be the new status quo! [​IMG]

    Between 11:00 / 12:00:

    Meet at the Train Station, in the Pumpkin Cafe in the Station Foyer!
    (unless someone lets us know otherwise, we normally leave at 12:00+ but can and will wait if your arrival time isn't too much later!)

    12:00+:

    window shopping, merch hunting, etc!
    no longer have a toys r' us, so this time is cut drastically shorter now, as one less place to go, which was kinda out the way!
    normally make Forbidden Planet our last stop, as its across the road from Bean!

    13:00/13:30 on-wards:
    we finally have a stable hangout with Bean-Gaming [​IMG]
    Here: Bean-Gaming 22 Silver Street LE1 5ET

    for those of you that haven't Been to Bean yet, its a Boardgame cafe.
    they are happy for us to just sit & chill at no charge.

    they have a wide selection of games: "Games Library"
    if we use their game library, it will cost a maximum of £5 per head for 3+hours/day, never costs more. ( for those playing )
    if we bring our own games, £2.50 for the 3+hours/day, this if for the CCG players in the group, or if anyone has anything else they wanna bring?
    Pony Monopoly anyone?
    There are also plans for Tales of Equestria to be ran at a later date...
    Ask me for Details! [​IMG]

    they have plenty of room for us, & we should normally get the upstairs area.
    they do hot food and drinks: "Menu"
    pizza, chips, lite bites, coffee/tea, hot chocolates, soft drinks etc!
    ( + alcohol & maybe some themed cocktails, once they get their alcohol licence come through. )
    and some things like cakes and brownies and stuff, that are made fresh & change regularly, thus those are not on the menu!
    ( should also mention the pizza toppings are the same, as they are sourced fresh locally, so depends what they get in day by day! )

    we normally chill here until 17:00+ where those of us that come from far away, bid their farewells & travel home... [​IMG]
    for those local, or closer to home, they stop open until 22:00! [​IMG]


    stay with us as long, or as little as you like, with bean being fairly central as well, gives us a base to come back too.
    if you've got something else you want to do, we can come and go as we please, as long as a few of us are staying to chill of course.

    And that's our plans, plans can change, but this should be the norm for the foreseeable future, we are booked in with them as "Leicester Bronies" until 2020!!!

    Looking Forward to seeing Y'all tomorrow! [​IMG]

    Howdy Y'all! [​IMG]
    meant to throw something up last night, but kinda just came home & flaked out... [​IMG]

    The Next Meet-up is this coming Saturday, 23rd, Feb!
    The New "Status Quo" remains in effect for this meet! [​IMG]

    -----
    I shall be bringing "Tails of Equestria: A Dragons Bounty" with me!
    This being a published/licensed campaign, And such is set in the "canon" mlp world!

    Depending on Numbers & Interest, I'm more than happy to run a game! [​IMG]

    Tails of Equestria. ‘A Dragon’s Bounty’ is an adventure book that can be played solo by simply reading the book.
    I will be doing this in my free time before now & the meet, so I know whats going & and can help run the campaign.

    Players build their own adventure by choosing which paths to take and how to confront each challenge, telling their own story along the way.
    Much like a Chose You Own Adventure Book, I used to love those!

    This Starter Set does not require a Gamemaster, so getting started has never been quicker and easier for new players.
    As stated, this is built in such a way where it does not require a GM, as the Book itself act's like a GM, you just follow the story!
    I'm happy to run this as a GM though, or we can take turns running sections & explore the game-system together!


    This game follows three foals, Thrilly Filly, Firebrand and Strong Oak, as they go on a brave, yet, foolish mission in order to save their home city of Vanhoover from certain destruction.
    players may use their own player characters (but they have to be colts or fillies)
    I can help with character gen, if anyone wishes to play their own Colt or Filly, but for simplicity's sake, and especially if we swap Player/GM roles, think it would be best to play with the stock ones provided!
    if we get 4+ interested though, some character gen will be needed!

    [​IMG]

    In future, if interested, we may ( not confirmed as of yet ) also have a guest DM whom has offered to join & run some adventures for us, that some of you may already know from the local Leicester RolePlaying Guild & Starbase Leicester.
    These I assume will be ran in her own: "Tales of Dark Equestria" setting, as the name suggests, it's geared up more towards the teen/adults, & is a bit more serious than the standard world filled with sunshine & rainbows! [​IMG]

    & I Myself... if I find my footing & some confidence... am more than happy to try running something myself, probably in the same world setting mentioned above, with my own spin!
    Or we can run any of the Standard Campaigns also! [​IMG]

    I shall have all my Standard ToE Books & Campaigns with me also, but Dragons Bounty is a good place to start, if anyone is interested!
    In addition I should also have Unstable Unicorns with me & Pony Snap, as well as Cards Against Humanity, if we fancy being a little naughty. [​IMG]

    This would fall under the table hire for games rule the cafe has, so depending on the time spent playing, would be up to a maximum of 2.50£ per person.
    If we play any of the cafes games, it caps at 5£ pp, for 3-hours+ never more, no matter how long you stay & play!


    "Those of you not playing & just chilling, need not worry about this."
    -----

    As said above, for this meet, we are following the new Status Quo! [​IMG]

    But if anypony fancies doing anything else, or has any idea's, feel free to speak up & run your own event's within the meet itself. [​IMG]

    A Couple of suggestions to get started:

    It's not my kind of thing so I wouldn't be doing it!
    but I know Leicester has many escape rooms popping up all around the city, we went to one and enjoyed it in the past, so if anypony fancies doing that again maybe?

    We could also leave early and go for a group meal together!
    Pizza-Hut like we used too, or somewhere else?

    or anything else, would love to hear any & all idea's! [​IMG]

    Looking Forward to seeing those of you that can make it to this meet! [​IMG]

    Hiya. I won’t be able to make this one unfortunately, hope you guys have a great time anyway!

    For future meets, an Escape Room visit or group meal sounds good.

    I'll be at this one, but I'll be heading off about 4ish to go to the football. Really looking forward to the whole day though :) As for future meets I'd be up for an escape room and meal (especially at somewhere like Pizza Hut) sounds great! :D
