Games Night; A Full House Of Fun
By: Tony Wong
If you were at school during Thunderstorm Week, then you likely saw students playing an assortment of video games and board games. That is just a brief introduction to the Games Night at Concordia—a night where the students and faculty members of Concordia take a break from their school work to socialize, watch movies, and play games in the middle of Tegler. With the huge success Games Night last year, it only feels right to continue the momentum into the 2012/13 school year.
With no signs of any slowing down, VP Internal John Anderson plans to continue Games Night by planning a poker-themed Games Night coming up on September 21, 2012. Not only will he be showing the 1994 classic poker movie Maverick, starring Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster, but John is also planning to set up a friendly poker tournament in Tegler Hall that is open to all participants with prizes going to the top players.
If poker isn’t your best suit (no pun intended), feel free to indulge yourself in some video games provided by the Concordia Visual Culture Society (CVCS). The CVCS, lead by Psychology student Jordan Morgan, is a Concordia Student Club that has gained a lot of attention in the past years with it’s open door policy and discussion of popular topics ranging from the Consumer Electronic Show to heated debates on which Pokémon is the greatest (Squirtle and Tepig are pretty awesome).
Not into video games like I am? Feel free to dive into the various board and card games available ranging from Uno to Scattergories. If you have a favorite board or video game that you think would be great for the evening, feel free to bring it to share with everyone else. Just make sure your property is properly labeled in the off chance that you misplace some of your board games.
Oh, did I mention that the entire night’s events are catered? Pizza and pop will be offered to all attendees on behalf of the CSA. With free pizza and pop, a chance to win some neat prizes in a poker tournament, a movie on the projector, and a chance to play an assortment of games in Tegler, how could you go wrong? Hopefully we will see you soon at Concordia’s Games Night, and if you have any suggestions on movies or other themes, feel free to contact John at firstname.lastname@example.org!
