Hawkeye Gamers Club

Hawkeye Gamers Club is a social club for students who enjoy playing games. The club provides an opportunity for students with a common interest in games to gather and have fun. Members play a wide range of games: PC games, console games, board games, card games, and Tabletop RPG games. The exact games played at events vary by member attendance.


Membership is free and open to all Hawkeye Community College students. All we ask is that you help out during each event, like sitting at the registration table or helping to set up/take down the event.

Club Events

All events are announced on our club's Discord server. Also check out the Hawkeye Community College Gamers Club Facebook group to stay up to date and for more event information.

24-hour LAN Parties

We host a 24-hour LAN party about once a month during the school year. These events typically start around 3:00pm on Friday and end around 3:00pm the following Saturday, with a quiet room available for sleeping overnight if needed. The club will provide a few TVs, ethernet cables, switches, and internet access for these events. Anything else that is needed will need to be brought by attendees.

Fee: TBA

Due to the pandemic, we have been hosting fee-free virtual events through our Discord server.

48-hour LAN Party

Each May, the club hosts a 48-hour LAN party. The fees gathered from other LAN parties throughout the year are pooled to buy prizes for this big LAN party. Typically, we give away about $1,100 worth of prizes at this event. The fee is to be determined but will cost more than the monthly events.

Fee: TBA

Dungeons & Dragons Game Nights

We have had an enormous surge in interest in playing D&D over the last few years, so we've set up ways to play D&D online as well as in person.

Due to the pandemic, we have been hosting fee-free virtual events through our Discord server.

Party Game Nights

Come gather and play board games, party games, and card games! The games played vary depending on what games are brought by attendees. These events are held monthly on Fridays from 3:00pm to 12:00am (midnight).

Due to the pandemic, we have been hosting fee-free virtual events through our Discord server.
