Attendee Registration for Saturday 15th Jan Meetup Now Open

It’s a new year, and we are back with our first face to face meet up of Go Play Manchester at Fan Boy 3 on Saturday 15th January, 1 pm to 5 pm. 

The event is public, and If you’ve not attended one of our events before, you are welcome to come along. 

Game signup will happen two weeks before the event, on Saturday 8th January. You have to register for the event beforehand, and it will open at 8 pm. 

Please note there is a £3 charge payable to the venue on the day.

Once registered, if you can not attend, please un-register since this frees up your seat for someone else to come. 

We currently have spaces available for GMs, so if you are interested, read our GM’s Information page and take it from there. 

The Triumphant Return of GPM!

Sunday 14th November saw the long-overdue return of Go Play Manchester. Four games, with solid numbers (2 full, 2 one player away from being full). Lots of happy gaming 🙂

Everyone was keen for us to become a regular thing again, so we are with another meetup in the early new year on Saturday, January 15th 🙂

GM sign up to come soon, with player registration to follow.

Go Play Manchester Returns on 14th November 2021

After a long break, we are back at Fanboy 3 in Manchester City Centre on Sunday 14th November, in the afternoon 1 to 5 pm.

This is our traditional post-Grogmeet meetup. This is a public event. If you are a GPM regular, a Grogmeet attendee who wants one more game before going home, or someone who has never come to one of our event’s before, simply register for the event when we open registration in about a week or two. Join our email newsletter to be alerted when this happens.

Join the Go Play Manchester email newsletter to be notified when registration opens.

We need GMs to run games. At the time of writing, we have three games signed up, which you can view on Warhorn, but we love to have more 🙂

Read our GM’s information and fill out the game form if you would like to GM.

Player registration and games sign up will be via Warhorn, an online game sign up system. Registration will open up in one to two weeks, once we have more GMs. Sign up to our email newsletter to be told when. Games sign up will open be two weeks before the event, on Sunday, October 31st at 8 pm. Again we will notify registrants via email beforehand.

Bookmark/view the meetup’s Warhorn page.

Please note, Fanboy 3 do have Covid 19 prevention measures in places, such as space between tables and a maximum of four players per game, which we will be following. This is a cautious return, and the meetup will be smaller and less busy than it was previously.

Also if the situation changes, such as cases rising and new measures being brought into place, we will communicate this to attendees in a timely manner.

Look forward to seeing you

Morning Games

No Go Play Manchester until Spring next year

Hi all,

Just to let you know that after the grand total of one person (Blythy) answering my call for GMs for our next online meetup, I’ve decided to put Go Play Manchester into hibernation for the foreseeable future. No reflection on anyone, it’s just the GMs are all busy with regular commitments.

I’m going to review the situation in early spring (March 1st) next year 2021, and hopefully, things will have significantly improved by then.

All the best

;O) Newt

Next Go Play Manchester Online is on Sunday 15th November

Please note the previously advertised Go Play Manchester this coming Saturday 24th October is not going ahead.

The next date is Sunday 15th November – our post-Grogmeet meet-up.

If you would like to run a game at this meetup, please visit the GM’s Information page and submit a game using the form.  I’m going to hold sign up for the games on Sunday 1st November – so please submit your game details by then.

The Toxic Jewel

System: Alien
GM: Sue Savage

You are a survey team working for Chigusa Corporation, en-route to one of CC’s asteroid mining operations when you’re unexpectedly told to make a diversion. A team of scientists have sent out a distress beacon requesting assistance. Their ship is crashing into JWL-5, a lifeless planet with a toxic, corrosive atmosphere. They need rescue before their supplies run out and they succumb to the planet’s poisons. It’s a routine job. Go in, pick up survivors, get out. What could possibly go wrong?
