NUIG Bot Wars this Weekend
By Aaron Hastings on .
NUIG CompSoc’s annual event, BOT WARS, will be taking place this weekend. Starting at 10am in Áras na Mac Léinn and over the course of the two days there’ll be battling of killer robots, video games, Rock Band, films, a gaming night in Squareyes and a Lego NXT robot Design-Build-Code challenge suitable for both total beginners and master programmers alike!
There’ll be a Halo Tournament on the Saturday morning with a Modern Warfare 2 tournament in the afternoon. On the Saturday there’ll also be free pizza to all attendees. For the keen roboteers, we’ll be doing the Lego robot Design-Build-Code all day Saturday and you can drop in and out of the DBC to go gaming if you like – it’s up to you!
On Saturday night they’ll be heading to Squareyes for some LAN gaming and afterwards hitting the town and having a good old fashioned Galway night out.
The next morning there’ll be the warmups for the main event, BOT WARS. Alongside that, there’ll be tournaments in Xbox games made by two CompSoc members. Then there will be battling of KILLER ROBOTS!
Both days there’ll be movies for those who want to chill out.
The event is open to the public and it’s only €5 for a whole weekend pass and just €2 if you’re attending AkumaKon.
