  • If you have any ideas for gaming events or other projects that you would like to see happening in the new gamebox-hub, please comment here, or, even better, come through on Saturday from 15.30 to meet the organisers in person.
  • @tuism and I attended this opening on Saturday. There were some great ideas to break the ice with new people. Thanks, @Goethe_GameboxHub :)

    This is a really nice space, and the folks we spoke to at the venue were really enthusiastic about hosting events there. The co working space is great, so if it looks like something your project could use, seriously consider applying. There's also a big hall with space for a good number of tables that will make for a decent jam venue.

  • Exactly what @mattbenic said, I especially like all the beer that's on tap there :)

    (just kidding :P)
  • Hehe. Someone asked about that actually. Being a German cultural institute the lack of beer was surprising. Their kiosk just isn't licensed :P
