An Invitation To TheGameJar Picnic 2014

Hey guys, we know you’ve been asking… so we of course heard the call and will provide!

Quoted as ‘one of the best days of the year’, TheGameJar picnic brings friends, readers, writers, and most importantly GAMERS together for an afternoon of sunshine (hopefully), fun (definitely), and merriment (again, definitely).

Aside from celebrating the fact that we’re still around after two years, we want to meet everyone who makes TheGameJar what it is. To be honest with you, I haven’t even met all the writers in real life! Granted a few live in the US, so although this invitation is for them too, we’re unlikely to see them *sadface*. We also want to meet readers, people who comment on the site, who we talk to on a daily (or even rare) basis.





For the last few years, we’ve been meeting up in Hyde Park, London for an afternoon in the sun.

This year our picnic will be… DRUM ROLL PLEASE…

2nd August 2014

Hyde Park, London

1pm onwards…

Obviously this is weather permitting, and if it’s definitely going to rain, we’ll organise a different place to meet and frolic.

How to get there?

Hyde Park is pretty central to London, if you haven’t been before.

The nearest tube stations are:

  • Marble Arch (Central Line)
  • Lancaster Gate (Central Line)
  • Knightsbridge (Piccadilly Line)
  • Hyde Park (Piccadilly Line)

We will try and meet at the same place as last time. Don’t worry if you don’t know where that is… here’s a handy map! If you’re still lost on the day, we will be on hand on social media to help locate you!

What to bring?

Things to bring with you may include:

  • Friends – LOTS OF THEM (as many as you want)
  • Snacks
  • Drinks – water is a must (last year was ridiculously hot)
  • Suncream – again, it’s seriously hot out there
  • A blanket to get cosy on
  • Nerf guns – yeah, we’re big kids…
  • Water pistols
  • Ball games/things to throw around
  • SWINGBALL… although it kind of failed last year
  • Handheld gaming devices – if you want those all important Street Passes etc
  • Anything else you might want to spend the afternoon doing!

We’ll also have things to give away on the day – I know this because I have a bag FULL of t-shirts etc that need to be taken off my hands. If we’re lucky, we might have more than that too (more details nearer the time).

So… if you’re planning on coming along let us know by adding yourself (and all your friends) to our Facebook event – CLICK THE PICTURE BELOW! We will update that page regularly when things change, are added etc, or you can find people to travel with if you’re planning on coming on your own!

We can’t wait to see you all!!! If you have any questions, let us know on our social media, on the event page, or here!

See how much fun we had last year!
