Geeky Cornish Content Creators That We Like to Follow

Cornwall may be most renowned for its holidays and beaches to most, but it’s not just all sand and sleepy villages! Here’s a list of some of the Cornish based content creators that we enjoy following at Happy Piranha, to help satisfy our geeky itch.

From computer and board gamers, to cosplayers, Dungeons and Dragons, Miniature painting and Harry Potter enthusiasts, there’s a bustling community of geeky content creators in Cornwall that we think should be celebrated. Know any more you think we should check out? Let us know! We may update this list from time to time.

So, in no particular order, check these peeps out!

Tin Squadron

We’ll finish on a bit of a niche one, but geeky is full of niche stuff, so it seems like a good one to end on!

Tin Squadron is Cornwall’s local X-Wing group. If you don’t know what X-Wing is, it’s a tabletop game where players fly spaceships from the Star Wars universe and battle it out in miniature form.

It’s a good game that we’re not very good at, with a very loyal local group. Sean and Sam religiously upload the Out of the Mines podcast, where you can listen to their game discussions and watch them played on their YouTube channel too, with other team members appearing every now and then too.
