Whether you game with cards, controllers, or character sheets, the Student Gamers Association is a club that hosts it all.
Members play trading card games like Magic the Gathering and Yu-Gi-Oh, and some video games they play are Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros. Most members describe the club as a place to relax and play games with others between classes.
“We accept any type of people, no matter what you like to play,” said Zachary Grice, club president.
Members are welcome to bring in their own video games and consoles to share with the club.
All games and consoles are secure and locked up when students leave and managed in a check-out system.
If a member wants to use someone else’s device they must get permission from the owner and exchange their student ID or something of importance to one of the three club officers to ensure that the device is returned safely.
“There’s a game for everyone, so just come in and play,” said Shay Bilyeu, club member.
From 2:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Mondays and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesdays the gamers association plays the 3.5 edition of Dungeons and Dragons, a tabletop roleplaying game with Grice and member Joe Hiler as the game masters.
They also host video game tournaments. Stop by a meeting for additional details.
The Student Gamers Association hosts open gaming from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Mondays and noon to 6 p.m. on Wednesdays in room 125-127 of the Science Building.
