About the Society

Established 1978, QUGS is the tabletop gaming society of the University of Queensland.

We enjoy playing a broad range of game genres including abstract strategy, bluffing, cooperative, deck building, drafting, engine building, press your luck, role–playing, set collection, worker placement, and many more.

Membership costs $5.00 for the year and being a student is not required. Everybody from complete novices to hard–core tabletop gamers are welcome. You are welcome to attend for a few weeks before joining.

QUGS meets on Mondays, starting at 5:00pm for board games, and on Thursdays, starting at 6:30pm for a Magic: The Gathering draft. We meet throughout the year, including university holidays, and usually only halt for university exam block and force majeure.
