Event description
Will the Terran Space Empire retain control of Beyond Sector? Find out in this 60-player space opera megagame.

About this Event

Beyond Sector is the newest - and most troublesome - acquisition of the Terran Space Empire. The worlds there are far from integrated into the wider Empire, and the taxes levied to support the Bug War have stirred unrest from numerous sources. Old rivalries simmer, and views on the newly developed gene-modding technology sharply divide the sector.

The Shot Heard Around the Universe is an original megagame designed by Tim Campbell and previously run by Pennine Megagames. This version will be very similar to the original, with some mechanical tweaks made by the organisers, and some of the secret briefings changed - so if you were at the last run, there shouldn't be any spoilers for this time around.

Players will take the roles of the leaders of the worlds of Beyond Sector, local Imperial forces, secessionists, journalists, or the original non-human inhabitants of the sector. They will manage politics, economics, warfare and espionage as they work to bring about their vision for the future of the sector.

FAQs

Megagames are exciting, social game events in which a loose game structure allows players to create their own narrative. Simple game mechanics encourage player interaction and the game runs to a strict timetable.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

The venue is a short bus ride or a moderate walk from Reading station - any of the 4, 13, 14, 17 will get you there. There's also a car park behind the venue, off Norwood Road.

What restrictions on accessibilty does the venue have?

The venue is fully accessible for wheelchair users. Please contact us if you have accessibility requirements.

Is food available at the venue?

Food is not available at the venue, but you are welcome to bring your own, and it's less than a minute's walk from the local co-op and a couple of take-aways.

Can I bring alcohol to the event?

The venue does not allow consumption of alcohol. Any guests consuming alcohol at the event will be asked to leave.
