About us

Royal Holloway Games Society is the central hub for all things gaming on campus. We facilitate most forms of gaming including Board Games, Video Games, TTRPGs, and Esports.

Normally we run on Mondays (Board Game night) and Fridays (Video Game night) during term time, with weekly arrangements made to provide rooms and resources to DMs for their campaigns, and a computer suite for our Esports events.

Membership

At Gamesoc we care about one thing above all others: providing a place where as many people as possible want to come and play games! As such, anyone is welcome to come to our regular sessions, membership or not, to hang out and play games. At our sessions we provide everything you might need including a huge inventory of board games, consoles, controllers, people to run games and teach them, and more which all requires money to upkeep and expand over time. As such, if you would like to support us in making Gamesoc great, then we would be very grateful if you bought membership.

In addition to helping us run our weekly board game and video game socials for the whole year, and Gamesoc's D&D campaigns and one-shots, the Gamesoc Standard Membersip (for just £7) gives you exclusive access to any special events we run including megagames, unique tournamnets and leagues, and any trips we go on.

The Esports topup can be "purchased" to tell us that you are/would like to participate in our various esports teams, and any LAN events, watch parties, in-house tournaments, or trips. By purchasing this topup, we will mke sure that money from your membership goes directly to funding esports at RHUL, including prize pools for tournaments.

If you are only reading this during the second term or beyond, there will be reduced price memberships for you to take advantage of.
