The Cameron Association of Interactive Gaming (C.A.I.G.), in conjunction with the Programming Activities Council (PAC), held an open game night from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Jan. 24 in the MCC McCasland Ballroom.

From electronic to traditional board games, C.A.I.G. provided many games for any type of gamer.

Some of the honorable mentions included “Mario Kart” on the Nintendo Switch and “Rock Band” on PlayStation; both gaming systems were displayed on projectors.

Other games ranged from traditional board games like “Jenga” and “Uno” to some new ones, which included “Ellen DeGeneres’s Heads Up” and “Cards Against Humanity.”

The two organizations also provided pizza and drinks.

The association is an organization on campus for students to socialize while engaging in game-play within a free, non-restrictive environment.

C.A.I.G. Vice President, Justin Griffith, states that the main purpose of their group is to bring people together.

“We want the students to come and have a good time,” he said. “Just relieve a little bit of stress and maybe make a couple friends while you’re here.”

Griffith said many C.A.I.G. events are similar to the game night because the organization always revolves around gaming.

PAC is an organization on campus responsible for many activities for students. They work to provide leadership skills and opportunities for Cameron students to become involved on campus.

PAC co-chair Kavis Muroy Jr. said the event, along with many other PAC events, are set up a semester in advance.

“Basically, you just have to come up with an idea,” he said, “get the paperwork done, and it’s set in motion.”

Muroy said that the next major PAC event will occur during Homecoming week, where hypnotist Chris Jones will be on campus from 8-9 p.m. on Feb. 7 in the MCC Ballroom.

PAC events can be found on the Cameron events calendar online.

For more information, C.A.I.G. meets from 6-8 p.m. every Thursday in CETES 207 to discuss and play new games, while PAC meets at 6:15 p.m. every other Monday in the Buddy Green Room on the second floor of the MCC.

Both PAC and C.A.I.G. encourage all students interested in joining to attend any of the weekly or bi-weekly meetings.
