You've might have seen Community Game Night or CGN announcements pop up each Saturday night, or even participated in a few here and there, and that's great! We're glad to see you playing and having a good time as a community and we'd love to bring in invite you all to join!
So here's a quick explanation about what our Community Game Nights are all about, and what to expect when you join one!
WHAT IS CGN?
Our Community Team each month goes through a list of popular games that not only support multiple people in a single game, but also are fun and exciting to play while you're hanging out with your friends! Games for CGN include a variety of genres and game types. Some past community favorites have included Prophunt, Garry's Mod TTT, SCP Secret Laboratory, Among Us, Golf With your Friends, Jackbox and many more exciting, interesting, terrible or quirky titles!
Now, I know what you're thinking, "Kaj, some of these cost money", and yes, some do, however, most are usually between $1-10; however, we do focus on hosting free to play games as well so everyone can participate! We even sometimes have extra copies available for those who would really like to join, and can't buy the game, but we primarily like to keep it as affordable as possible so members aren't left out of the fun.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Each Saturday, around 8PM CST a group of members gather in discord for that nights' game, which is announced several hours earlier in our #cgn-announcements channel on discord, so you know what game we'll be playing that week! We will also have it posted on the calendar here on the website.
Also, each CGN is live-streamed either via discords in client streaming, or on our Twitch Channel for those who either can't make the event, or would rather watch and hang out that way! This way everyone can join in on the chaos!
HOW DO I JOIN?
Joining is easy, just hop in our Community Game Night voice channel at 8PM CST, and one of our Hosts/Staff Members will get you an invite into the game! If the game is full when you join, don't worry, we cycle through players or can create a second room if there are enough people, so everyone gets a chance to play! We'll do our best to make sure you can participate and have a good time!
POP UP CGN?
Once in a while, we think, hey, maybe community members would like to play this game on a different night of the week....so...Pop Up Community Game Night! All the same info applies, just that its a different night.
CAN I HELP?
Well, of course one of the best ways to help is to join in and maybe bring your friends. But sometimes maybe you have an idea for game night and want to get a little more involved. Community members can approach an OmniPixel staff member to co host a Pop Up CGN together (depending on staff interest and availability). Planning times, getting a sneak peak of promotion materials, creating hype and of course, hosting the game as a team!
We hope to see you there, and if you have any questions, please reach out to our Staff or @Ishwa about our weekly event!
Happy Gaming Friends
