    London Engagement Event Report

    The London Engagement Event seemed to go over very well! Hopefully all those who wanted the Rainbow Dash cards got them. Check out the details below.

    Whether or not they planned for the bronies that would turn up, I don't know; but they definitely didn't turn us away. The Dash promo cards started showing up about half an hour before the planned start, I think (not that anything defining happened at the planned start to say 'the event has now started'). The big Twilight Sparkle stood at the back behind the Shining Armor/Cadance cutout, and people would pose for pictures taken by the staff (or with their own cameras if they wanted); the staff would then print the photos they took out and stick them to a 'thank you' card with Cadance on them. I think the promo cards were supposed to be handed out one each with the photos - thus ensuring everybody got one each - though this was only really enforced later on in the event, so some people managed to obtain multiple promos. About halfway/three quarters of the way through, the printer stopped working, so the staff offered to send any photos they took to our email addresses, we having to make do with an empty thank-you card.

    As well as the kids, bronies were also accepted by the face painters; though not full-face painting, it was limited to cutie marks on the cheeks and a couple other small things I saw. There were also cupcakes being handed round, but I didn't get a picture of them - fortunately they weren't styled after any particular pony(!). The television at the back of the room played Winter Wrap Up and Suited for Success on a loop. On the merchandise side of things, children's t-shirts were available for purchase, along with the current MLP range (Fashion Style, Wedding Castle playset, big Cadance, backpacks, etc); it seemed that Fashion Style Rainbow Dashes were being given away for free with the purchase of any MLP item.

    Brohoofs were exchanged, favourite ponies were discussed, and good times were had. Bearing in mind that the show's UK broadcaster has yet to show us Discord - or any ponies at all since March - it looked like something that said "This show and toyline is still very popular here". Hopefully Hasbro UK'll start paying attention and we'll get Season 2 soon.

    Time for a new pony podcast guys! Check out the details below.

    On Pony 411, a brand new My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic-themed podcast, Four String, Nemesis, LordFunkyFist, Artfan and FusionFox tackle the news of the week and some of the timely topics of the brony community. 
    Shenanigans are afoot this week: Funky decides that he is Zecora! More about military bronies! We discuss the smell of ponies (it makes sense in context)! And Four String is with Tori Spelling? It has to be heard to be believed.
    Plus, we talk a bit about merchandise, FiM being nominated for a Tubey, and a breaking announcement about the 3rd Shout Factory DVD that was totally not spliced in. Of course, as per usual we talk about some fan content including a game, an artist, and two songs.
    So come on and slam, and welcome to the Pony 411 jam!

    Successful Meetups

    Abqbronies' Board Game Night

    Copy Paste:

    Board game night was truly rad!  We had more than 13 bronies from all over Albuquerque as well as Rio Rancho and Los Lunas in attendance.  Games included "Magic the Gathering", "Apples to Apples", "Betrayal at House on the Haunted Hill", "Pony Scrabble", "Reverse Jenga", "We Didn't Playtest This At All", and "Munchkin".  We dominated a corner of Active Imagination and got alot of curious looks from the regular magic players.  If you're in the area and you missed this, keep an eye out for our event next friday!
