UB Child’s Play Charity Arcade

Nov 12 @ 10:00am - Nov 16 @ 9:00pm

Event Description

Come out and join the Digital Designers Guild for a week-long charity arcade from Monday, November 12th, to Friday, November 16th!

On Monday through Thursday, DDG will host our arcade from 11AM-4PM, with four stations of games: shooting, fighting, party, and retro games. The games are all free to play, although a donation is certainly encouraged. In addition, we will also sell official and unofficial Child’s Play gear, including Child’s Play t-shirts, Child’s Play buttons and wristbands, fingerless gloves, and flash drives pre-loaded with dozens of games, headlined by the Baltimore Independent Game Seminar 2012 development contest champion, “Chronicles of Waa!”. All proceeds go directly to the Child’s Play Charity.

In addition to the arcade, we’ll also host several other special evening events throughout the week.

On Monday evening from 5-9PM, we will host a Rock Band Open Mic Night. Bring your friends and enjoy some pizza, great music, and plenty of opportunities for personal and collegial embarrassment!

On Wednesday from 5-9PM, we will host concurrent Smash Bros. Brawl and Peggle tournaments. Show off your Nintendo smashing and ball-handling skills for glory and prizes! Or just come to spectate and enjoy the pizza!

Finally, join us on Friday for our Child’s Play Charity Gala, where we sport our finest (that is to say, semi-formal) dress attire, listen to some amazing live music, and give away some fabulous prizes, including a 3DS XL with a copy of Nintendogs and Cats and New Super Mario Bros. 2, a Dungeons and Dragons starter kit, and a complete Child’s Play swag package. Ticket admission is only $15 for this night of fun, excellent food, and gaming. We can’t wait to see you there!
