Board Game Night + WheelO’DeFRAG update

Apr 12, 2015Posted by Alex Devine

Hello all! Two quick updates from your friendly local neighborhood DeFRAG secretary:

 

  1. Thanks to everyone that went to our Wheel of DeFRAG event last Friday! Despite multiple technical difficulties and the event being in a different location than usual, everyone still had an awesome time! It was great watching people react to the goofy and wacky games that we had planned for everyone :3
  2. Our next event is this Friday, our quarterly Board Game Night at 5pm. Room 924 as usual, stop on by and play board and card games with friends!

Board Game Night

Mar 08, 2015Posted by Alex Devine

It’s our quarterly board game night! Take a break from studying for finals (or celebrate finishing a final or two) with a few hours of board games with friends.

We’ll have board and card games of all kinds from the Game Lab’s collection of tabletop games. Anything from Magic: The Gathering and Cards Against Humanity to Settlers of Catan and Scotland Yard to fan favorites like UNO and The Resistance will be there. If you have board games of your own, bring them along too!
