In April last year, I sent out a speculative tweet, asking if anyone would be interested in meeting up in Manchester to play a game. Last time I did an advert like that, only Eddy and his mates turned up, this time it created GROGMEET.
Last year there were 8 games available, this time there was the opportunity to play 19 games over two days.
Thank you to everyone who attended, especially the Games Masters, without whom it wouldn’t be possible.
We also had a fundraising event to support the 24 Hour Game of RuneQuest that I’m running next week for Alder Hey children’s hospital. There were some very generous prizes provided by people attending and we raised £283.
I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. Until next year …
