GAME Club Reminds Students of the Joy of Games

April 12, 2012 Campus, Student Orgs

The mission of the GAME club (Gaming And Multimedia Enthusiasts) is to provide a fun atmosphere for Rollins students interested in gaming and various other media forms. Every semester, the GAME club holds events that range from relaxing to challenging and highly interactive.

In between important exams, GAME always holds events to help take the edge off and ease the academic stress. A much liked staple among GAME’s events is always Game Week.

During this week, a different theme or style of gaming is featured each day of the week.

The most popular day of Game Week has always been Old School Games Night, where participants choose from a wide array of nostalgic video games to play.

Gaming And Multimedia Enthusiasts originally started as RPGS and focused mainly on role playing games such as Dungeons and Dragons and Exalted.

In 2009, the club changed its name to TAG (Totally Awesome Games), held events such as Geek Week (a precursor to Game Week) , invited students to play board games such as Settlers of Catan, Arkham Horror and even Monopoly; card games such as Magic: The Gathering; and multiplayer video games such as Mario Party and Super Smash Bros: Brawl.

In 2010, TAG became Gaming And Multimedia Enthusiasts. The group expanded its repertoire to hold movie nights, including Bad Movie Night, which featured laughably poor cult films such as Ed Wood’s Plan 9 from Outer Space, Troll 2 and Mystery Science Theater 3000.

As the Spring 2012 semester draws to a close, the GAME Club is planning an event or two to make the last days of class before finals a bit less stressful. There is talk of bringing back Old School Games Night on a Tuesday or Thursday before everybody starts to concentrate on finals in May.

Gaming And Multimedia Enthusiasts welcomes any and all students of Rollins to their meetings, get-togethers and events to join in the fun.

GAME meets at 5:30 p.m. in Holt Basement on Fridays and again at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesdays in the same location for those unable to attend Friday meetings.
