Top 10 Superhero Ranking Event

Gather ye to the Crescent Ballroom en mass to argue, debate, pull hair, slap, kidney punch, chest thump, jump up and down, and otherwise do battle to determine the greatest superheroes of all time. Mostly just debate though; slapping is kinda rude.

The madness begins at 5:30pm.

Quantum Game Jam 2015

The UAT is participating in a global event where nerds spend a couple of days building a game with quantum physicists.

Read that again and realize how awesome that sounds, then check out the link above for details.

All Night LAN Party

Well, LAN Speed Games may be gone, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get your all-night LAN party fix anymore. CyberZone is carrying the torch for these caffeine fueled head-shot fests.

Starts at midnight. Play ’til the sun comes up.

Tron Legacy Rave

Not sure if Daft Punk will make an awkward cameo but there’s a solid chance you’ll hear some of their tunes at this rave. Cyber-neon-punk yourself out and have a blast. Arcade games and DJs will abound.

I, for one, dance for the users.

Starts at 8pm. Link above for the deets.

Talk Like a Pirate Day

In general, you should follow the Dread Fleet and check out their events, but this is especially true on Talk Like a Pirate Day. Enjoy their shenanigans this year at the Children’s Museum of Phoenix from 10am to 11am.

Booty…

PHX Gaymers 10th Anniversary

Congrats to the Phoenix Gaymers for 10 years! Join them Saturday night from 5pm to 10pm at the Phoenix Pride LGBT Center for tons of video and board gaming (obviously), photos, a food truck, and high fives. As always, everyone is welcome.
