Cardiff Gaming Society
From casual fun, to the more niche competitive scene. Cardiff’s Gaming Society aims to bring those with this common interest together. We offer the chance to meet on a weekly basis where you can play some games and socialise along the way, be it through our many consoles, PC and VR, with the added benefit of some cheap pizza. Among our mellow events, we wish to create more memorable moments this year, and strive to achieve this through our tournaments, weekly meets and our big events of the year.
Every Friday 5pm-7pm until the exam season, we hold our “Weekly LAN”. For those interested in console games, we are able to set up multiple stations, whether it be on the projectors for groups of people, or monitors for you and a friend. A typical sesh involves games like Smash Ultimate and Mario Kart (games we think are easy to join in), but don’t be afraid to see what games we have in stock as we are flexible in what people want to play. A classic shooter, a racing game, a fighter, just ask.
If the console games aren't your scene, then no fear, with the many students that join, the odds are in your favour that you’ll find someone who plays similar games. To further ease this process, checkout the Facebook group and/or the discord to connect with others. We book large rooms to accommodate for those bringing laptops in regards to our weekly LAN.
We have also acquired the HTC Vive and are able to provide society members with the VR experience, enjoy the many games we have, whilst others witness you flail around, just barely dodging you swing your arms around at Mach speed. On a serious note, it's worth checking out.
As mentioned in the main description, we wish to hold some general events, as a way to form new relations and provide a true society experience. Future events will be promoted through our social platforms.
