Nerdy Things To Do This Weekend In Edmonton (March 24-26)

Lots of things going on for Nerds in Edmonton. Want to go to a book club for games? That’s what the Makerspace is calling tonight’s event. The theme is “Walking Simulators” and they’ll be picking apart games like The Stanley Parable. Tonight there’s also Board Games to play at The Gamers’ Lodge, the start of Make It Edmonton and some post-apocalyptic action at Metro Cinema with The Girl With All The Gifts. (Oh and if you want to go somewhere but not deal with anyone, there’ Introvert Reading Night at Variant Edition).

Ok, on to Saturday… Beyond Board is trying to look after you solo board game players, Rapid Fire Theatre has Sherlock Improv and you can possibly make a movie in 24 hours. There’s also two gaming tournaments going on. Mythic Man Game Day has card games like MTG, Pokémon & UFS while the March Meltdown has fighting video game action. plus there’s also another round of hobbit gardening with Gardening For Geeks.

Finally, you can go to a Podcasting meet up at Variant Edition on Sunday, Quote-A-Long with an actual Anchorman (CTV’s Graham Neil) as you watch Anchorman and maybe go to the Pop Culture Fair as well!

Hope you find everything you’re looking for and if I missed anything, send me an e-mail at and I’ll add it too!
