Trueplayerz Give Gamers Chance to Give

This Summer Joystick Junkies is proud to announce the launch of the Trueplayerz party season where gamers can compete in tournaments for a charity of their choice.

Following on from the success of January's Tsunami game tournament at Leicester Square's Vue Cinema, party-going gamers will be able to do it all over again, this time at The Medicine Bar on Great Eastern Street in Shoreditch, London.

It's really simple! Just pay £3 to play, and if you win all proceeds go to the charity of your choice. As a bonus, winners of heats and semi finals will receive their pick of free games whilst the finalist and runner up will receive free Joystick Junkies t-shirts, games and other special prizes.

Trueplayerz will be taking place once a month, kicking off with a special launch party over the Bank Holiday weekend on Sunday May 29th.

Starting midday and running till 6pm the tournament is open to anyone 18 and over. The daytime tournament is followed by an evening clubnight starting at 7pm featuring guest DJ's.

Entry to the Medicine Bar where the tournament is taking place is free whilst the tournament entry fee is just £3. Entry to the clubnight is £5. Players can sign up for the tournament at or on the day. Please note entry is restricted to 18's and over.

PMS Clan, the world's largest community of girl gamers will be turning up in force to host the VIP room where you can meet them at the business end of a Plasma Rifle. In addition girl gamers who want to find out what PMS Clan is all about can come along and get exclusive access to the girls only VIP room where they can meet the girls and get a goodie bag (whilst stocks last).

If you just want to chill out there will be some retro games, Xbox pods and other games plus relaxed tunes from our guest DJ's playing through the afternoon.
