GPM dates for October, November 2019 and Jan 2020

It’s like buses this time out, with not one but three dates!  One of them is jolly exciting, so read on!

Sunday 27th October Our usual 1 pm to 5 pm meet up. If you want to GM contact me over the next couple of days and I’ll open player sign up on Sunday evening.

Sunday 10th November. Since this date is post-Grogmeet, a one-day RPG meet up mainly for old games, which runs on Saturday, I’m opening up attendance to Grogmeeters who’ve not yet fled Manchester to go home.

So if you are coming please let me know, by registering here.

I will be asking everyone to do this so I can plan GMs in advance to match numbers.

So far I have myself, Roderick and Chris (aka Dirk the Dice) who is Grogmeet organiser are down to GM. We need more GMs. So let me know if you would like to when you sign up.

December – No Go Play this month, while Fanboy is happy to have us. I’m going to be swamped with end of term school Christmas concerts.

GPM Winter Con 2019, Saturday 11th January.
To celebrate Go Play Manchester’s 1st Birthday, we shall be holding a one-day mini-con at Fanboy 3. 10 am start – 5 pm finish, with an hour or so for lunch. Two slots, with a possible social afterwards.

I floated this one past some of our regular GM’s so we’ve already got three or so GMs, but with Hedi offering all six tables on the ground floor and me inviting folk from far and wide, we are going to need more GMs. You lot get first dibs, but you need to let me know by return since when I announce it to the wider audience, I’m sure there be no shortage of offers.

Like the Nov GPM, I’m asking everyone to pre-sign via a form on the mini-con’s page.

(BTW advertise this page and let your friends know)

Like a normal GPM, all games will be pre-signed before the event, so you can sit down and play.

I am looking forward to seeing you on the day(s).

All the best

We are back at Fan Boy 3  (between 1 pm and 5 pm) on Sunday, September 8th.

If you want to GM, let me know via the contact form on the Games Masters’ Information page as soon as possible.

Finally Go Play Leeds is on this coming Sunday (1st), at Geek Retreat in central Leeds, and from what organiser Guy Milner has tweeted seems like a good opportunity to try out the new Pathfinder 2nd Edition as well as D&D 5th.

Looking forward to seeing you on the 8th!.
