Back-to-back weekends brought two Field House events that spotlighted Penn College’s vibrant gaming community – and the student organizations that have grown up around it. On Sunday, April 3, the Wildcat Online Gaming Association sponsored “Disconnect: Your Pro Controller,” a tri-state Super Smash Bros. tournament that was open to all skill levels and offered several cash prizes. The following Saturday (April 9) brought a 12-hour Gamers’ Jamboree and Game Jam, organized by the Gamers’ Guild and the Wildcat Games Studio.
