Do you like to have fun? Do you play a few too many video games? When someone says they went "camping", your blood starts to boil? Then these next three words may be the best thing you've ever read...Hawkeye Gamers Club.
Hawkeye Gamers Club is a student club devoted to gamers of all types: we play FPS, RTS, MMO, and other assorted three letter abbreviations you may or may not have known. This club has been active over ten years and could be one of the more active clubs on campus. We are seeing a growing group of board game players for games like Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride, etc. Card game players grow as well and play Magic The Gathering to deck building games like Legendary and Ascension.
The Hawkeye Gamers Club has been around for many years, and was formed as a way to get students together and socialize. Each year, we grow and grow, and now are a well established, active, and officially recognized club at Hawkeye Community College!
Hakweye Gamers Club membership including officers is limited to current Hawkeye Community College students. However, you may still attend the events organized by Hawkeye Gamers Club. Many of the attendees to events are former officers of Hawkeye Gamers Club. You must be 18 to attend the events, and no exceptions allowed.
Officers of the Hawkeye Gamers Club are what makes the events possible. Those who are officers are ones that run events, completes necessary club obligations, and moderating our social media places. We have a presence in a Facebook group and in a Discord server.
The Hawkeye Gamers Club hosts a monthly LAN party during the school year. These LAN parties are overnight events for over 24 hours of game playing fun! In May, the club hosts a 48 hour LAN party! At our 48 hour event, the club gives away over $1000 in prizes! In 2019, our budget is $1200!
Like competitive games? We are adding tournaments and more competitive game activities to our monthly LAN Parties. We will be rotating the games selected for the tournament play, but we will be playing other competitive games like League of Legends, Overwatch, etc.
Another club event is Board Game Nights. This is where we get together for an evening and play a bunch of different board games. Each event sees new and fun board and card games!
