Oh thats me all over, even before the lockdowns
Yeah, the idea of larger meetups with a more structured element might be nice, been to a couple of pub Meetup groups and can be a bit "Err....so do people like games n stuff?". Really dependent on who could host or a agreeable pub within a decent radius of folks.
Buts that kinda a long ways off with the current kerfuffle; can expect 4 or 5 groups meeting in a pub and all sitting round a table, sharing out cards/dice/miniatures/boards as being fairly hard to do with even lessened restrictions. So guess it will be lockdowns over before any of this could kick off. Could still use the digital stuff like Tabletop Simulator/ Tabletopia/ Boardgame Arena or even just the digital versions of games that do the rounds.
As for stuff to keep convos ticking over, can kinda steal from Facebook groups Im in and have bi-weekly/monthly topics to drive some discussion or just have a simple post about. Something like a "Book of the Month" but with stuff like Favourite game, Game that got ya into the hobby, Most Excited for, How Many organs/How Much blood are you selling to fund your current Kickstarters....yknow, fun stuff like that
With a timelimit, there might be more incentive for folks to post.
Also, to CatInABox...does this forum cover pen and paper RPGs too, or is that a seperate subforum?
