December’s events

Merry December for everyone! Evenings are getting darker and air colder, and soon it will be next year already. Before that there are few events remaining, but first we have a small announcement:

As decided in association’s autumn meeting, ANC’s membership fee will increase to seven euros per year starting next year, so if you haven’t already renewed your membership for the next year, it is very recommended to do it before the year ends.

Additionally, please note that this Wednesday 6.12. there’s no hangout, but we wish everyone a peaceful Independency Day! Okay, now some events:

Smash weekly Fri 8.12. 17.00-22.00 Campus Chapel
The autumn season is nearing its end, but there’s still time to collect some points. The games played in the event are Ultimate and Melee, as usual, and even the very beginners are welcome to attend. So come along to Chapel to Smash yourself into victory or your opponents into chaos.

Christmas Party Gaming Night Thu 14.12. 17.00-22.00 Turku-Sali
The last gaming night of the year will be Christmas themed, so come to Turku-Sali to play with others, eat gingerbreads and drink glogg. Also, in this gaming night there will one of the year’s most long-awaited events, Paavo’s Traditional Game Music Quiz! Here are the rules of the event presented by Paavo himself:
Game Music Quiz starts at 18.00. I will play you 15 songs, which will take about 40 minutes. After that we will go through the right answers together, which will take about 30 minutes.
The goal of the participants is to recognize the game where the song played is from, and to explain or define where in the game the song is played (intro, level1, waterlevel, bossfight etc.). You get points from the correct game series, game, and name/definition of the song. If only one of these is correct, you are given three out of five points, and you get an additional point for each additionally correct attribute. That means you don’t have to recognize the exact game at all to get good points. Additionally, you can plead for one point from a completely incorrect answer if it’s clever or funny. I will get the winner a prize with a value of around 10 euros.
You can also participate to the music quiz with easier rules. In this case you are given all correct answers on a paper in a random order. Your goal is to arrange them into a correct order heard during the quiz.
You can write your answers to paper or send them to me with a private discord message. I will bring some paper with me, but extra pencils from for example Terrakoti would be nice.
The playlist for the game music quiz consists of classics, exciting surprises, humor and hopefully, good music. The lyrics, atmosphere and overall associations of the song can give hints to the correct answer. The goal is to create an entertaining quiz even if you haven’t played any of the source games.
Come along to guess songs and enjoy the music!

Smash weekly Secret Santa Edition Fri 15.12. 17.00-22.00 Campus Chapel
The final Smash weekly of the year is here, and the winners of the autumn season are decided. For the season finale and taking current season into consideration, this weekly will be played in Secret Santa format, which means players skills with characters other than theirs will be put into test. Everybody is welcome no matter their skill level, this weekly is the one to have fun with!

Hangout Wed 20.12. 17.00-22.00 Terrakoti
The last hangout and at the same time the last ANC event of the year is on Wednesday, and we welcome all of you to hang out and enjoy each other (and games, of course) for the one last time in 2023.

After this we wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year 2024! The current board thanks you all for this year, and the new board will begin right away in the beginning of January with the first hangout on 3.1.!
