What is your club about? 

The club is about playing video games and having a good time!


When was your club established?

Sometime before 2014, but we haven’t been able to figure out the exact date.


Who are your current leaders (advisors, president, vice president, etc.)?

President-Eric Qualls, Vice President-Joel Hendricks, treasurer-Xabier Marin, secretary Hayley Carroll, advisor- Robert Brill.


When does your club meet?

We meet every Saturday from 7:00-11:00 in Sally rooms 117 and 121.


What are the biggest challenges that your club faces?

Attracting new members has been difficult, and since we don’t have that many people, it’s hard to do big events.


If you could pair up with another club for an event or project, who would it be?

It would make the most sense for us to pair up with Cyberhounds esports for a tournament of some kind, not necessarily with the games that they would normally play though.


What is the latest project that your club is excited about?

We’re really excited about the gaming PC we just built for club use! Also, getting all the old consoles such as the Nintendo Wii we were donated set up.


If you had an unlimited budget, what dream project would your club put it towards?

Some kind of campus-wide event where students could play video games all day.


What games do you play?

As a club, we play all types of games, like Mario Kart or Super Smash Bros, but also games like Animal Crossing and Just Dance. It depends on what people are in the mood for. Personally, I’ve really been in the mood to play Stardew Valley recently, so maybe we’ll do that if people are interested.
