There will be several game tournaments held by different student organizations. 2 vs. 2 Halo: Master Chief Collection, Super Smash Bros. on Wii U, and 2 vs. 2 Corn hole will be held by SWOSU Computer Club to name a few . There will also be tabletop games (board, card, etc.) that will be available to rent out for free using the org’s licenses.

It is the attendee’s responsibility to bring everything they need to play once tournament play is done (i.e. screens, games, game consoles, computers, etc.).

“It’s a great cause to stay up and game all night with 100% of the money raised going to benefit local kids through the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.,” Harrington said. “We have been doing this for six years now and we keep raising more and more money every year. I hope to see us double our total amount from last year by bringing in our student organizations.”
