If you enjoy discussing games, come to the Tech Valley Game Space for Game Club! Every month, participants Game Club meeting pick a game to play, then get together and talk about their experiences! Think of this group as being a traditional book club, but with video games. Participants discuss various aspects of the game that they liked, disliked, or simply found notable; everything from music, character design, and storytelling, to the in-game physics, level creation, or graphics quality.
Anyone can attend – no memberships necessary. So long as you’ve got the right equipment at home, and enough time and interest to play at least a little of the game, then you’re welcome to join in!
Below is the schedule of selections for the next few months. Note that every meeting is held on the third Thursday of the month, from 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM.
