UL Games Society was founded in 1989, by John O'Sullivan and Joe Vaughan, and thanks to continuous dedication to meet the demands of our members is now one of the oldest Societies in UL. Along with our two weekly events there are off campus trips throughout the year to go paint-balling and attend Conventions around the country, caffeine fueled lock-ins for both console and P.Cs and the annual campus wide games of Zombies and Assassin.
With each of the current generation consoles to placate all fanboys and a selection of retro consoles to bring you back to your childhood, we cater to all tastes. With a large collection of games, Wednesday's Console day is sure to have something for you. It runs from 12pm – 6pm in Room 3 of the Students' Union.
Games Night is laid back with boards games, card games, tabletop wargames and RPGs. Monopoly, Risk, Magic: the Gathering, Settlers of Catan, Twister, Apples to Apples and Warhammer are just a few of the games that make a regular appearance on a Games Night. If you're looking to get into a particular games system or just want a game to pick up and play, swing by EG-010 on Monday night from 6pm – 11pm.
Our aim is to provide those in UL who enjoy gaming in all forms a way to relax and enjoy their experience while a part of the University of Limerick. Whether you're fully prestiged in COD or you don't even know where to find Mayfair on a Monopoly board, feel free to drop on by.
