The Game Room - All 3 Days 12:00-...

The Game Room is the place where conference delegates can relax and socialize during the conference. The room will be fully equipped with Xboxes, Playstation 2's, GameCubes and projection screens. The room is run by the Electronic Gamers Guild, and all of the consoles come equipped with the latest in games as well as many old classics. Among the Australian produced games available will be excellent Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2, by Australian game developer Krome Studios.

The Game Room is open on all days of the conference from 12.00-18.00, however, upon demand it will remain open for as long as necessary in the evening! On Friday the 25th, the official conference Games Night will take place in the Game Room from the end of the last talk and at least until 21.00 - or when the last frag has been landed. There will be tough competitions and prizes to be won. Join the fun and challenge your colleagues.

The Game Room is placed in the Tower Building of the University of Technology, Sydney (Building 1). When you get to the main entrance of the Tower Building, head directly in and go down the ramp one level, turn left, and you are there. There will be signs at the Tower Building guiding people to the Game Room, so it will be hard to miss.
