'BYOC' to the Field House This Saturday
Penn College's Bring Your Own Computer 2017, "the biggest gaming event of the year," will be held from noon to midnight Saturday, March 25, in the Field House. Hosted by a collaborative mix of gaming, technology and social clubs on campus – the Gamers' Guild, the Association of Professional Programmers, the Game Development Club, the Association for Computing Machinery and the Information Security Association – BYOC provides 12 hours of gaming, friendly competition and socialization. Whether or not you have a gaming computer, a laptop or a console, everybody is invited to join the fun! More than 25 tournaments (including Super Smash Bros., Counter Strike: GO, Overwatch, Halo, Rocket League, League of Legends, Minecraft, Pokemon, Magic: The Gathering, and many others) run all day, many of them requiring nothing more than gamers and their skill. The event will have food, door prizes and tournament prizes, and will be live-streamed by the Game Development Club on Twitch. Donations will benefit Child's Play, a charity that provides toys and games to more than 100 hospitals worldwide. More information, including complete tournament schedules and prize lists, is available online.
