Star Trek board game afternoon

Come join us for an afternoon of Star Trek themed board games. We have most of the good ones, like Star Trek Ascendency and Star Trek: Five Year Misson, but really, I want to play those cheesy VHS video adventure games like the one in the photo. We've got a selection of them to choose from :) If that sounds up your street, join us for a board game filled afternoon. We'll also be screening one of the movies (vote on the day) from 7pm.

Sun 10th Mar 6:00pm

In the not-too-distant future Joel Robinson is held captive by Dr. Forrester and TV's Frank, forced to watch B-Grade movies on the Satellite of Love with the help of his robot friends: Cambot, Gypsy, Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot. Come enjoy some of the worst (and hilarious) movies ever made. See such classics as Santa Claus and the Ice Cream Bunny, or Attack of the Mole People. We'll vote on a film on the night and have a chance to catch up before/after with a few drinks. The movie will start at 7pm but join us from 6pm for a glass of wine or cup of tea and lets chat about B-movies and classic cult favourites. There will be time afterwards to stay and discuss the movie if you'd like.

- Open source VR game development with A-Frame for beginners

Mon 11th Mar 6:00pm

A-Frame is a web framework for building virtual reality (VR) experiences. A-Frame is based on top of HTML, making it simple to get started. But A-Frame is not just a 3D scene graph or a markup language; the core is a powerful entity-component framework that provides a declarative, extensible, and composable structure to three.js.
This event will show you how to get started creating basic 3D VR scenes/games. It will be more of a workshop format - I'll demo on my screen and you'll be able to work alongside me as we show the ins and outs of the software. It's easy to learn and experiment with as it's all based on Javascript and HTML.
We'll have some VR headsets so you can try out what you are creating in a proper virtual environment.

PC LAN Gaming - retro games

I want to play some old school LAN games - like Unreal Tournament, Quake II and some RTS games like Command and Conquer, Red Alert 2/3, Age of Empires II, Homeworld and so on. The Gamer Club have four gaming PCs ready to use, but you can bring a laptop along if you want to make sure you don't have to wait your turn. Doesn't have to be great spec as most of these games are 10+ years old now.
