Saturday Meeting

To those of you going to tomorrow’s club meeting,

The HUB closes at 8:00PM tomorrow, so the meeting will be held in Hyde 316 and 318. These are the same rooms as the last time we moved to Hyde.

Do not go to the HUB, we will not be there.

Hello people!

Stuff is happening! Elections! That’s what’s happening! This one’s going to be a little different. We’ll explain the process more at the meeting, but the gist of it is that you will write down and submit your top SIX picks for the As-of-yet-Unnamed-Assembly. We will then perform basic addition to find the SIX with the most votes and that will be that.

After the official-ish stuff is done, this Thursday is retro games night! If you like older games and older consoles (like the GameCube for instance), this is for you!

This Saturday, Matt will be testing a game of his own devising. It’s much like charades but with a twist. Should be heaps of fun!

(I actually don’t remember what’s happening next Thursday, but it’s probably awesome. We’ll talk about it tomorrow, I’m sure.)

That’s all I have for you this week.

Hello everybody!

Tomorrow night, we will be holding nominations for chair positions! Please come prepared so we can get to the fun stuff as quickly as possible.

Also on Thursday is an HvZ mission! Have fun, shoot many zombies, perhaps become many zombies. Fun, fun, fun!

This Saturday is our Gaming for Charity event! It will run from 10:00am-10:00pm and it should be very enjoyable. We’ll have some Super Smash Bros tournaments as well as a Magic: the Gathering draft. We need participants, so do not be shy. Open gaming will be held for the duration of the event.
(If you signed up to table for this tomorrow or Friday, you had best be there or we will be very sad.)

Next Thursday will be retro/gamecube games night hosted by Stel and/or Shane! Do you like GameCube? You should.

The following Saturday, Matt will be testing a board game of his own devising. He will need players to help out with this. If you’ve never tested a game before, it’s probably one of the most fun things you can do with a board game.

Have fun and try not to succumb to the zombie horde!

Meeting Location Change

Hello all,

If you plan on coming to club tonight (Thursday, April 14), DO NOT come to the Student Senate room in the HUB.

The meeting has been moved to Hyde Hall, rooms 316 and 318 due to some important stuff that has to go down in the HUB tonight.

Once more: DO NOT go to HUB 119, DO go to Hyde 316/318.

I hope you’re all having a fantastic week!

Tomorrow, Thursday, we have a tabletop game being run by Ethan. Frostgrave! It sounds like an incredibly interesting, slightly smaller-scale version of wargaming. We’ll explain it further at the meeting, but it’s definitely something you should consider checking out if you’ve ever been interested in getting into wargaming. My understanding is that it should be relatively easy to teach, so don’t feel intimidated!

On Saturday, David T. and company will be running some Rocket League. I don’t really know much about it, but I did watch a couple of YouTube videos about it and it looks super crazy. Definitely plan on joining in. It should some nice, fast-paced weekend fun!

I totally didn’t forget what’s happening next Thursday! (I’m pretty sure it’s retro gaming night with Stel and/or Shane, but don’t quote me on that.) Either way, we’ll cover during business tomorrow!

In the near future we will be holding nominations for chair positions. Probably one week from tomorrow. Elections shortly thereafter.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I really need to eat a sandwich or something.

See you at the gathering,

The Rant


This week on Thursday Matt is running a game of Civ 5. Please join if you are interested! Picking will be on a first come first served basis.

This weekend there is no meeting. Game-On-I-Con is happening! Make sure you come and have fun. We’ll be putting out sign-up sheets for work at the meeting this Thursday. Remember, 4 hours of work gets you in for FREE.

Next Thursday, Ethan is running Frostgrave! If you enjoy tabletop games, come and play!

That’s all for this week.
