Gaming meetups

    Hey everyone,

    I'm a 24 year old lad that works in Dublin during the week and goes back home to galway on the weekends!

    I'm finding it a little tough to make friends that I can hang out with and have the craic with during the week in dublin.

    Are there any type of meetups or gaming meetups during the week that I could come to and make friends at? :)

    any suggestions at all would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks :)

    Have you tried I've thrown ideas like this around before, not too much of it has come of it. Maybe the Switch's existence nowadays might help heh. Check out any upcoming cons, like Dublin Comic Con. Is it just video gaming or do you do tabletop style gaming, because there are stores that sell board games/Magic cards etc. that do have rooms for social games in the back that can usually be used for free...

    Boards gaming meet-up in Token with beers would not be a bad idea.

    Isn't there a new gaming cafe opened in Dublin? Gigabite cafe I think? Not sure where exactly but saw a couple of pictures and it looks like a proper set up!

    I think that's the place that's just opened up out in the Dundrum centre? A trip on the Luas out to it and you'd be laughing. Seems like a good mix of arcade, console and PC gaming.

    But can I button mash there, or insist we only play the Gamecube version of Soul Calibur II so I can play as Link?

    That Gigabyte cafe sounds promising.
