Been a while since I updated this page. 

We've had a series of good meetings. Numbers are a bit down, partly due to the play, partly due to other things. It's all good. Lots of good games are being played and good times are being had, so no worries.

By this point, everyone has gotten their t-shirts and hoodies. If you missed out on those and really want one, you can go to Trophy Shop on your own and make your own order. They still have the artwork and wording, but it will be more costly. 

Soon we'll be discussing what we want to buy with the club money. Only paid members get input on that, since it's their money. Not a ton of people paid dues this year, so that'll impact what we can buy.

Don't forget that in May we'll be celebrating Gamers Club's 20th birthday!

Because I've had exactly two people order t-shirts or hoodies, we're going to extend the deadline by one more week. You now have until Feb. 7th to order your t-shirts or hoodies.
As a reminder:
The t-shirts will be the same prices as last year. Sizes S-XL are $15, XXL is $17, 3XL is $18, and 4XL is $19. Hoodies are the same as last year: $30 for S-XL, $32 for XXL, $34 for 3XL, and $36 for 4XL.
Payment is due when you turn in the form. Checks can be made out to Kevin Keefe. Order forms will be at the meeting or can be picked up in Mr. Keefe's room, B241.

Wow! I didn't realize it'd been so long since I updated this page! Most of the updates are on the Google Classroom page or the Facebook page, so I guess I just kinda forgot to do it here too. 

T-shirt news: I'm waiting on a quote from Trophy Sports. Hopefully they'll be the same price as last year. Here are the best quotes you guys gave me; unless we get some better ones, these will be the ones on the back of the shirt. The shirt will be black with red print.

That’s what I was going to do!
I like the way it jiggles. 
Just eat their pieces when they’re not looking.
I hate this game.
It slices, it swings, it cuts through the 9 realms.
It’s scientific inquiry!
This is NOT a scorpion.
I talked to God today.
I’m a magical being! You can’t dispel me!
Are we just mobile RAM?
I’ll be your ADHD translator!

Been a couple weeks. It's been small meetings both this past week and the week before.  I'm not sure where everyone is, but it's all good.

I showed up late because I was helping out for the Academic Team. When I got there, we played some Catan with some first timers, and the D&D group continues to run strong. There were isolated pockets of other games here and there. 

The quotes sheets are out! We need GOOD quotes from what happens in the club meetings for the t-shirt. I'd LOVE to get t-shirts earlier this year, so let's get some decent quotes. Remember, they should be something that's said in the club meetings, not something from a movie, show, or webcomic.

Another small meeting, but that's okay. Lots of fun was had by all. I saw several rounds of chess, the D&D group started a reboot of the campaign, and Mr. Scott and I taught Max how to play Azul.

I have news! The results are in, and your new XGC officers for the 2022-2023 school year are:

President: Andrew Warren
Vice President: Matt Kindred
Secretary: Colin Rice
Sergeant-At-Arms: Zach Weaver

Congratulations to the new officers, and thanks to everyone who voted!

Looks like a small meeting yesterday. That or people aren't remembering to sign in!
Here are your candidates for office:

  • Tyler McCarthy
  • Andrew Warren
  • Cliffton Warren
  • William Wright
  • Matt Kindred
  • Colin Rice
  • Zach Weaver
Remember, you have to be a paid member to vote or run for office. If you have not paid your club dues, you will not be able to vote.

Hey everyone. Been a while since I updated this page!
Great meeting yesterday! We had one of our fastest games of Frag ever, followed up by a more normal paced one. The D&D group is still going strong with Zach's HZD homebrew, and everyone seems to be having a blast there. I saw some Gravwell, Catan, chess, and a few other games being played as well.
You can now sign up to run for office! Remember, to run and vote in the election, you must be a paid member of the club. $5 covers the entire year, lets you run and/or vote, bring in/play video games, vote on how we spend our money, and get pizza at the end of the year. We'll be taking nominations next week as well, then vote in the first week of October.
We will turn 20 years old this year! On May 16, we will have the 20th Anniversary Big Birthday Bash! Members old and new are welcome, and I hope to see a lot of faces from years past, as well as maybe some surprises. I'll have more information on that as the date approaches.
And as always, you can see the pics from this year in the Photos section of the FB page

That was a great first meeting! There were at least 28 people there, although I suspect a few people may not have signed in. There certainly looked and sounded like there was more than that!

I taught Settlers of Catan to three people, there was a huge game of Uno, some King of Tokyo, some checkers, and I think I saw a Switch out there. The D&D group even got all their character creation done in one session. Now THAT'S impressive!

Membership applications went out and were turned in, we talked about the club in general regarding times and dates, voluntary club dues and what they're used for, running for office, and more. Remember, that money goes straight to the club to buy new games and pizza at the end; we don't get any cash from the school. All the games you play here were bought with club money; it's 100% yours!

We will take nominations for the 2022-2023 officer positions on Sept. 6 and 13, and vote Sept. 20.

Even better news! We've moved the first meeting forward, and TOMORROW is the first meeting of the 2022-2023 school year! We'll see you there! 2:30-4:30 in the cafeteria!

Hey everyone! Welcome back to another year of Gamers Club! Our first meeting will be September 6, from 2:30 to 4:30 in the cafeteria. Hope to see everyone there!

Also, Gen Con is back! I know, it was really back last year, but I didn't go because they changed it to the middle of October due to COVID. But I was back in Indy for it this time, and it was wonderful! Like coming back home! The pics I took from it are already up on the XGC Facebook page here. Speaking of, we have a Facebook page for the club; go check it out here
