It’s EGX 2014 (aka Eurogamer Expo) from 25th to 28th of September at Earls Court in London.
This will the fifth year running that Midlife Gamer have held a number of official meet ups over the weekend for the community and we’d love to see you there. Gaming guys and gals travelling from afar to get together at our annual pilgrimage of gaming, friendship and drinking.

EGX BanFri

Friday 26th
Blackbird Pub
Earls Court Road SW5 9AN
We have a private area for everyone to get together, enjoy a few drinks and tuck into some of their tasty grub.
Just come on over to the crowd in the back and say hello. Look out for the bunting!
There will be the normal man-hugs and laughter – enhanced by the planned games of Cards Against Humanity – If you’ve not played it before or new to the community/these meet ups – its a great ice breaker!
Under 18’s are permitted if accompanied by a responsible adult.

The Official Midlife Gamer After Show Party.
Saturday 29th September
Rileys Sports Bar, Semley Place, Victoria, SW1W 9QJ
1830hrs till 2300hrs
Saturday night at the Midlife Gamer aftershow party will be an evening of fun, frolics and entertainment with everyone from Midlife Gamer helping to raise a few pennies for GamesAid. Rileys Sports Bar are very kindly letting have their venue for FREE on the night and we think the extra effort to get there is worth it.

The evening will feature your podcast hosts Uncle Fista and MantisMat comparing the evening with a very sexy quiz, raffle and auction.
Every penny will be donated to GamesAid. Lets add to the £7,500 the community have raised so far.

The SEXY QUIZ we ask that teams have a maximum of SIX members, with each team member donating just a quid to play.

The raffle has some great prizes to be won and tickets are just a quid each on the night.
Thank you to the following who have made donations so far:
and more…

The Auction this year features a special commisioned piece by artist EpicToneDogg for the event and a ‘Home Invasion’ podcast recording by Matt & Daren. As announced, we will be allowing ‘proxy’ bidding for these items if you know someone who cant be there, but would like to bid.
**A Just Giving website has been set up to take donations for auctioned items on the night**
**We must insist that successful bidders for auction items make their donation on the night**

Its just a couple of stops on the Underground from Earls Court (details below). Food will be available for you to order during the evening (at very reasonable prices), so don’t fret if you skip lunch.
If travelling from Earls Court, head to the EARLS COURT Underground station (directly opposite the Earls Court Expo) and take the DISTRICT line to SLOAN SQUARE. Its just a couple of stops. Alternatively, Victoria Station is just round the corner too.

Once you get to Sloan Square or Victoria Station, its just a 5-10 minute walk down to Rileys Sports Bar. We are in the GROUND FLOOR bar, not the downstairs one.

    @Jamman – Ref Prince of Wales….not sure to be honest. I guess just keep an eye out for the #MLGX hashtag and @midlifegamernet feed.
    As its between the hotels and the expo, I dare say there might be a chance of some people being in there…

  8. Chinny and I are looking forward to another excellent evening of madness hanging out with MLG!
