Games Night

Come out to our Virtual Games Night! It will be a great way to meet new friends and relax post finals.

Don’t miss out on a fun night of games and networking with your fellow accounting students.

We will be playing Jack  In the Box TV.

In Lie Swatter, you will be given a fact and you have to decide if it is True or False.  If you guess wrong you get swatted and guess right and you get points. Game 1 Lie Swatter

Bracketeering is the game of strong opinions about stupid things. In this game, everyone is that one friend who insists on debating the merits of whether or not Jim and Pam getting together ruined The Office. Everything has stakes and everyone is allowed to weigh in and make a final ruling on the truly absurd. Game 2 Bracketeering

What: Games Night
When: Thursday, December 17th at 7 pm
Where: Virtually with Zoom
Accounting Club Zoom link

Please join the zoom link and we will give you on screen instructions on how to set up the Jack in the Box TV games. We hope to see you there.
