The Anti-Social is a geek-themed social. So what's really geek-themed? Also, what's a social? Music, dancing, alcohol, silent auctions? Video game music, video games projected on the walls (ideally multiplayer things like Smash). Basically what we've been doing.

The Anti-Social is a geek-themed social, but also a not-social. Music, but not too loud; dancing, but not all the time; alcohol, of course; people dressing in costumes; raffles full of geeky gifts; food, both generic party snacks and home-cooked treats; video games projected on the walls.

Something we could do is host a true geek social, with quieter music, lots of snacks, and a bunch of different types of board/video games. Ideally at a venue that allows us to sell alcohol.

Concept

The Anti-Social is a geek-themed social, but also a not-social. Music, but not too loud; dancing, but not all the time; alcohol, of course; people dressing in costumes; raffles full of geeky gifts; food, both generic party snacks and home-cooked treats; video games projected on the walls.

Theme

The design of the venue will start after everything else has been done, probably in the second full week of September. Can we design everything with pixels and modified 4-bit colour? (For example) Emphasis on cards and boards as design elements (maybe real-life Material Design). Maybe dice. Play up the hacker aesthetic, if we can. Green numbers and stuff. Some hardware hacks with blinkenlights, if possible.
