Geek Out – A SLAM Celebration

Geek Out is back for 2016, bigger and better than before. This year, we will be running two events, at Preston on May 4th and now for the first time, at Prahran on May 5th.

Celebrating all things video games, pop culture an anime, Geek Out is for everyone. Chill out and reminisce, playing an array of retro video game consoles, or battle it out with current day hits, such as Super Smash Bros for Wii U.

There will also be a free pizza lunch for all attendees as well as a bunch of SLAM merchandise to be given away.

This year, we will be graced with the presence of Madman Australia with plenty of giveaways and prizes to be won thanks to our sponsors.
