Spiel - Games @ Virginia Tech

Spiel is a club dedicated to playing games. That's it. Not "playing games to improve your life," not "playing games to sharpen your critical thinking skills," and absolutely not "paying us money to play games." (Although if you want to give us money we won't object.) Just...playing games. We're located at Virginia Tech in lovely Blacksburg, Virginia. Every Wednesday night while classes are in session, we meet at seven o'clock in Squires Student Center. We also have Game Days, usually one Saturday a month, where we play games from noon until midnight.

What sort of games do we play? Mostly, board and card games. Party games, like 25 Words or Less, are also played sometimes. We tend to eschew mainstream games such as Monopoly and Clue for brainier and more obscure games such as The Settlers of Catan, Puerto Rico, Kill Doctor Lucky, and other games you probably won't find at your local Wal-Mart.

Since a good many of the games we play originated in Germany, we felt that the German word for "game" would be a good name for the club. Hence, "Spiel." (Actually, I felt it would be a good name for the club, and no one else came up with anything better. -Tucker)
