Future Schedule At-A-Glance

Our meetings are always on Saturdays.

Our normal time & place is 2PM until 2AM in Frist A03 (Class of '52 Room, next to the Galeria).

Contact to get onto the sguevents mailing list and get regular updates on our scheduled events.


Boardgames: Our open boardgaming events frequently involve short, quick-to-learn, quick-to-play games. However, periodically alumnus Shantanu Saha comes down to help people learn long, complex, challenging games such as Avalon Hill's "Civilization" or Mayfair's "18xx" series of rail games.

Roleplaying Games:

Robert West frequently runs World of Rachlem, a fantasy role-playing campaign using the PrinceCon rule system the SGU has developed for its annual roleplaying convention. The PrinceCon system is an Open Game License game closely related to D&D3.5.
