New weekly Gaming and Social event for Cape Town kicks off Wednesday **UPDATE** Moved to Mondays

Trenchtown Header


The gaming nights as advertised below have been changed to a Monday night. The schedule for the next two weeks remains unchanged, and the evening will also feature stand-up comedians. So, jam a game, have a laugh, or have a laugh while jamming a game.  And eating.  And drinking.  The competitive games (with prizes) will have a R20 registration fee.

This coming Monday (11 February) will be a Gears of War 3 mini-tournament featuring 2v2 play.  Numbers will dictate if single elimination, double elimination or even a mini-league.

The following Monday (18 February) will be Black Ops 2 and will be a free-for-all competition.

Apologies, this was a decision made by Trenchtown to avoid clashing with Euro Champs League games, as the place gets packed for the games and the gamers may actually be stepped on by the crazier spectators in the venue.  Safety first in gaming of course…


Wize Wednesdays.  That’s the name of a new weekly gaming event that will take its first tentative steps from tomorrow night, Wednesday 6 February.  From then on, every Wednesday evening until there is no more support – or the zombie apocalypse happens (the more likely of the two scenarios, we would like to think…) – you can head over to Trenchtown in Observatory (in the Western Cape) for a bit of socialising, gaming, good food, even better drinks and just an awesome vibe.

The plan is to rotate the focus game every week to keep things fresh and entertaining, and will offer a mixture of full-on competitive gaming, along with good old fashioned social gaming.

Every event needs to crawl before it can walk, and then walk before it runs (away from the zombies, screaming), and this is no different.  Four Xbox 360s and four 32″ TVs will be available with the “focus” game of the week hogging the majority and the remainder used for more chilled gaming.  These numbers may grow over time, as the needs dictate.  As gamers, you are encouraged to bring along your handheld consoles, so that you can partake in a little friendly rivalry with an opponent lurking somewhere in the venue.

How do we know so much about this?  Well, let’s just say that Zombiegamer is expanding (albeit at a slow shambling pace) into gaming events, and will be there to help Trenchtown give gaming one of (we hope) many new homes this year.
