Edinburgh University Gaming Society (or just GameSoc) is the University's only society dedicated to playing all types of video games. All are welcome, whether you’re into hardcore competitive gaming, would rather chill, or are somewhere in between. We host regular 12-hour LANs every month throughout the academic year, and have various tournaments running throughout the events on both console and PC, which can involve anything from short games of Mario Kart and Smash Bros to much longer Civilization games, so everyone can get involved. Aside from tournaments, members are free to play any of our games on the society’s consoles, as well as bring any other games or consoles that they might have along for the day. Most members tend to bring either a laptop or full gaming rig along to LANs too, and we hold a “What Game Would You Like” poll on Facebook in the week leading up to the LAN so that you can find out if people are thinking of playing the same kind of thing as you. GameSoc has a game for everybody!

In addition to our LANs, we have a weekly pub night every Friday at 7pm, providing a more regular opportunity to get to know other people from the society, have a laugh after a long week of classes, and have a cheeky pint or five. If you're not a fan of drinking, we have casual online Gaming nights several times a week where we get everyone together and play a variety of games.

We mainly communicate using Discord - a free voice and text chat service aimed towards gamers. Our server link can be found at: pop in and say hi to our members, and play some games!
