Social Gaming ONLINE

Date: Saturday, 27. February 2021, 15:00
Location: GECo Discord


General Information

tldr: We are trying to bring the Social Gaming Events you know and love online using the GECo Discord Server.
If you are familiar with the BGD Online, this will be very similar, but video game focused.
Social Gaming Events offer videogames focused on bringing people together and offsetting the stressful university time.
The games we select are meant to be quick to pick up even by non-gamers and focus on a fun time with friends more so than competition.
Look below for a list of examples.
For the online events we will meet up at the GECo Discord and from there you can look for other players in the #lobby (be sure to go to the "Channel Unlocker" to see the Social Gaming Events Channel).
Everything is free and you can come and go as you want.

The events are held in combination with Boardgamedays ONLINE.

Example Games

  • Unrailed
  • Jackbox
  • Overcooked
  • Stick Fight: The Game
  • Golf With Your Friends

If you want to play more competetive games like CS:GO, Rocket League, or Fifa, make sure to ask around.
The same is true for Nintendo games (Mario Kart, Smash Bros., ...).
There is a Discord channel called #lobby meant exactly for meating likeminded people and picking games.
The Server has a lot of members and these events should be the perfect time for interacting with them.

Otherwise, the "Looking to play" channel serves a similar function outside of events.

How do I participate?

We are using Parsec to make joining as easy as possible.
You can either join using your browser or by downloading their free client (for better latency).
You do not need to own the games.
Similarly, for Jackbox games, we will stream them using Discords Streaming Feature.
This means you can just show up in the Discord Server, hop into a voice channel and start playing for free.
