...---===<<<[ Game Night ]>>>===---...

Bring laptops, controllers and gaming mice, because this month we are having a game night! We will be playing Star Trek: Bridge Crew with some VR systems (and other VR games if the group decides Star Trek isn’t fun enough), as well as some other gaming opportunities – such as emulators through the RetroPie interface on the Raspberry Pi. We will also be playing the newly free version of StarCraft 1 (or the enhanced version, if you have it); however, you’ll need to bring your own machine to play it. If you have games and want to bring them, the more the merrier! Feel free to bring consoles, PCs, and your own VR equipment if you feel inclined.
Please come prepared with whatever games you intend to play pre-installed. There is no guarantee that you will be able to do so over the guest WiFi on the night of the meeting.
StarCraft runs on any hardware.  You can download the free version of StarCraft here:

We're adding Quake III to the agenda.  We will play Quake III Arena for those that have it.  Consider installing the demo version from Steam if you don't.  For extra points, get it running on your Raspberry Pi and bring it along to show off.
We will try to bring CDs, if we can find some, to install the games for those who have trouble but no promises!  Do try to have them installed before you come!
Everyone is encouraged to join the games discussion on our SLACK channel:
