[VIC] OzBargain Meetup & Gaming Night: Free T-Shirts, Food & Drinks fr. 5:30PM Thursday (Nov 28) @ Pokéd (Bourke St. Melbourne)


OzBargain is turning 13 years old and to celebrate we are having meetups all over the country.

Our Melbourne meetup will be at Pokéd @ 111 Bourke Street (Bourke/Exhibition) from 5:30PM Thursday and is a gaming night. Thanks to Justin from Pokéd and Gameology for lending out his venue and his time.

  • Free food: Likely cheap pizzas (Pepperoni, Veggie, Cheese) + Woolworths Specials (Look for the guy pushing a trolley from QV).
  • Free drinks (non-alcoholic).
  • Free OzBargain t-shirt. You must PM me with a size to reserve a shirt before Wednesday (27/11) 12PM 3PM
  • Free games & prizes (need to think about this, Suggestions welcome!).
  • Free Not a Bot virtual badge.

If you don't want to hang around or interact with anyone, that is fine. You can come in, write your username down (so I can give you a badge) and take a shirt (reserved)/food.


  • New orange on grey t-shirts. Pic.
  • 200 Shirts (6x more than last year) (XS: 20; S: 45; M: 60; L: 45 XL: 20; 2XL: 10). There were at 70 people in attendance last year so should be OK. 3 full suitcases of t-shirts. T-shirts have all been allocated.
  • You need to PM your request for a shirt. Deadline is Wednesday (27/11) 12PM.
  • We will be prioritising those who have never received a shirt, contributions/time on OzBargain. (e.g. people who just sign up for account get low priority). Also allows me to not be bombarded with PMs all at once.
  • I'll PM you sometime on Wednesday to let you know if you've been reserved a shirt. If you haven't you'll be put on standby.
  • If you don't collect the shirt by 6:30PM, we'll go to standby list, followed by first come, first serve.

PM me the size you want. (Sorry only 1 colour) All shirts allocated, no more PMs thanks.

Rough plan:

  • From 5:30PM: Meetup starts. Grab a name tag, sign the birthday card (receive Not a Bot Virtual Badge) & shirt if reserved.
  • 5:30-5:45PM: Food arrives.
  • 6:30PM: Free t-shirts to those on standby list followed by whoever is there.
  • 6:45PM: Group photo (voluntary).

Also a good chance to do an entry for the OzBargain 13th Birthday Competition where you can win $100-$600

For people in other locations, we need your feedback and/or confirmations.
