KawaiiKon: No Meetings, Pass Pickup, and Artists@AMS!

KawaiiKon is this week, so we will not have any Thursday or Friday meetings. We’ll be right back next week! Enjoy the convention.

If you ordered a pass through our club, you should have received an email with details about pass pickup. If you have ordered one and this is not the case, please let us know.

We will also be showcasing our Artists@AMS Table at the convention as well! Come and check out our booth at table 253 in the Artist’s Alley! Our following artists will be displaying their works:

Open Game Day in the iLab!

Today, we’ll be holding our Open Game Day in the iLab, from 4:30pm-7:30pm! This is a test run to see how holding our game days in there works out, but it’s pretty much exactly what we usually do. As always, feel free to bring your setups, board games, and what ever you feel like to game with us! The iLab comes with some added bonuses as well:

  1. There are up to three TVs that you can use to plug in a console or a laptop
  2. If you’re a part of MAG, you’ll also be able to hop on any of the six fancy gaming PCs in the room
  3. There are plenty of tables for you to set up tabletop games!

As usual, we’ll also go and grab food after, rides permitting. Whether or not you’re a regular at AMS, you’re welcome to join in!

If you need to figure out where the iLab is, it’s the small building right in between Kuykendall and the Art Building, and between two parking lots. You can’t miss it!

March 8th – Switch & Game Day with MAG!

Hey everyone! The Manoa Academy of Gaming (MAG) is having a Switch Day this Friday, March 8th, during which they will hold a casual tournament. Whether you are competing or not, and whether you are a part of MAG or not, you are welcome to join us! We will not be meeting in Kuykendall 209 on Friday– instead, head over to the UH Manoa iLab (Building 37). Festivities will go from 4:30pm– all the way to 11:00pm, with the specific games focused below:

Mario Party – 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm 
https://challonge.com/magparty1
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
https://challonge.com/magkart1
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – 8:30 pm to 11:00 pm
https://challonge.com/magsmash1

If you plan to participate in any of their tournaments, click on any of the links above to get started. Again, you do not need to be a part of MAG to compete!

As usual, the PCs will also be open for use (to MAG members), and I will be bringing my laptop setup and multi-outlets for those of you who aren’t a part of MAG, but are interested in PC-gaming on your own. It’ll be a party!

Also, MAG is interested in borrowing any of the games above, controllers, and/or set ups if you don’t mind them doing so for the event. If you want to, please send them an email at gaming@hawaii.edu with the materials that you would be providing so that they can keep track of them.

Join us at our Post-Valentine’s Day/Single’s Awareness Day Party!

We have our post Valentine’s Day party this Friday from 4:30 to 10:00pm on the second floor of Kuykendall!

As it is a potluck, please bring food or drinks to KUY 208 to share so everyone’s stomachs will be satisfied. Please also bring food that is substantial so we won’t live off saturated fats and chips, thank you (^^). Or, you can help contribute to the chicken nuggies campaign (PM @elder eli on Discord for more information).

We will also have games and karaoke in the other rooms, so come game and sing your hearts out! Come have fun with us, we’ll see you there!

JOIN US at MAG’s first gaming meet!

We’re going to be doing things a little differently this Friday— since the Manoa Academy of Gamers (MAG) will have their first meeting that day (which goes on for longer, from 3:00p-9:00p!), there are people who are a part of both AMS and MAG, and there are some may want to attend the Punahou Carnival, we’ve decided to meet at MAG’s event instead. Idea is still the same– bring ‘yo setups– we’ll see you in the UH Manoa iLab on Friday!

You can learn more about the UH Manoa iLab here.

The UH Manoa iLab is the small structure between Kuykendall and the Art Building, next to the Art Building’s parking lot. Also note that since this event is under MAG, any use of facilities and equipment in the iLab is to be determined by them.

Future Friday meetings are still planned to be held in Kuykendall 209.

Last Thursday, End of Semester Party, and Saturday Karaoke!

This week we will be our last set of meetings for 2018, but we have some events which you might be interested in:

1. Today, in KUY 210 from 4:30p-7:00p we’re watching our weekly showings: the 11th episodes of Wotakoi, Cells at Work!, Recovery of an MMO Junkie, and Violet Evergarden, and the 21st and 22nd episodes of Darling in the Franxx.

2. Tomorrow, we’ll have our end-of-the-year party! Relax and unwind before exams. We’ve got the second floor rooms in Kuykendall (right across from the iLab) with setup beginning at 4:30, going until 10pm– come by to our thing right after the MAG game night!

[ KUY 210 ] – Potluck and showings (we can finish up our Thursday showings, or watch a movie, etc)
$20-or-less secret santa (safe for work please)
[ KUY 209 ] – Open Game Room
[ KUY 208 ] – Karaoke with Vocaluxe

Like other game days, I’m bringing my laptop setup to our party. You are also very much welcome to bring over your own console/PC setups to our event, though note that you may want to bring your own multi-outlets to the event if you can.

3. We also have a Karaoke social on Saturday, which is kind of full— I’m not sure how much more we can fit, but feel free to let us know on our discord or at ams@hawaii.edu if you’re interested in future Karaoke stuff!

Join us at our 2018 Halloween/Cosplay Party!

We have our Halloween Party and Potluck this Friday from 4:30 to 10:00pm on the second floor of Kuykendall!

Showing Picks for Thursdays!

Last week, you chose the weekly showing format, and voted from the pool of nominations. From this, you picked our showings for this semester– each week, we will watch the following:

Shows don’t necessarily need to be in this order: if you want a show aired earlier or later in the meeting, let us know and we’ll check if people in club are okay with that.

Remember that if you can’t make it to the meeting but still have free time, you can join us on Rabb.it/Discord.

Meeting times will be from 4:00p-7:00p in Kuykendall Hall 210. Check our calendar for a more detailed look at our meetings and events.
