Town Of Salem
Link to Game.

Town of Salem is a browser-based game that challenges players on their ability to convincingly lie as well as detect when other players are lying. The game ranges from 7 to 15 players. These players are randomly divided into alignments - Town, Mafia, Serial Killers, Arsonists and Neutrals. If you are a Town member (the good guys) you must track down the Mafia and other villains before they kill you. The catch? You don't know who is a Town member and who is a villain. If you are an evil role, such as a Serial Killer, you secretly murder town members in the veil of night and try to avoid getting caught.
Civilisation 5
Civ 5 On Steam!

It's a turn-based strategy game based around building up a selected society into a world power. In the Gaming Tournament, we'll have any number of players and whomever wins first will end the round! Depending on time, we may or may not play longer. For anyone who's into strategy, it's a great game.
Guns Of Icarus
Steam Link!

Being stuck on an airship with a skeleton crew of strangers tasked with keeping it from being blown out of the sky makes Guns of Icarus Online one of the most thrilling multiplayer co-op experiences and also the most aggravating. On deck, everyone has a role to fill: someone has to steer the hulking bird, man its guns, and make repairs when things catch fire and go to hell. If anyone slacks off or performs their duties haphazardly, everyone dies. But despite some glitches and the occasional frustrations of wrangling inconsistent crewmates, there's a certain undeniable satisfaction that comes from surviving an intense battle with your ship held together by duct tape and chicken wire.

In the Tournament, we'll have teams of 4 people per ship (Or less, if you want to risk using the AI!) and we'll balance teams at the time of gaming.
Don't Starve (Together!)
Steam Link!

Don’t Starve Together is the sort of stern instruction that was once delivered by frowning parents to their newly married offspring as they set out to find a partner for life. Or at least, that's what RPS says.
League Of Legends

Simple, 3 v 3 matches. Make yourself a team, and welcome, Summoner.
Dota 2
Steam Link!

"Dota 2 is simply a team game – a battle to destroy the other side’s ancient bonsai tree thing using a collection of weird and wonderful heroes and their combinations of skills.

It’s resistant to new players, particularly those relatively new to PC gaming. It’s also incredibly time consuming to dig into. You can spend hours on Reddit watching discussions about different item builds unfurl. But if you stick with it you’ll find an incredibly rewarding game accompanied by a hugely creative community (the people who make items and run events, obv – not the fools who instapick Pudge and whine about having no wards despite there being FOUR OF THE DAMN THINGS ON THE MAP THIS VERY MOMENT)." - Taken from RockPaperShotgun.
Age Of Empires 3 & Age Of Mythology
Steam Link for AOE 3 Steam Link for AOM

If you enjoy real time strategy games, enjoy managing an economy, epic large battles, and don't like excessive micromanaging then this is the game for you. It offers brilliant combat with amazing scenery. The unit mapping is rather brilliant and the variety of maps keeps you constantly wanting to play more. We'll be playing with as many people as we can get, in a Free for All on a random map!
Left 4 Dead 2
Steam Link!

I’d almost forgotten those moments. There’s only three of you still alive, the rescue helicopter is right there, in view, and you can’t move. One companion is pinned to the ground by a frenzied Hunter, another is barely alive, fallen from the path, trying to negotiate a route back, and you – you simply can’t move. There’s so many of the Infected surrounding you, pouring from over fences and climbing from a hole in the ground, swamping you, and no matter how many you kill more take their place. And the rescue boat is just there, you can almost touch it, and you can’t move. - Taken from RPS.
Team Fortress 2
Webpage! Steam Link!

"Because I am a warrior, from the very beginning, and I have returned.

Kill me and I will only gain the power of your strategy.

Become my nemesis and incur my wrath.

For when you least expect it…

I will slap you to death with a fish and spank myself over your corpse.

That is the way of the warrior."

TF2! Most Gamers should know this - it's a legendary game, with legendary backing. We'll be playing all v all, and may the best team win!
Online Link!

Go is an old Chinese board game, with simple rules but hard to master. Head over to the site and give it a shot, or ask someone from your region for help if you know others! If not, talk to me on Skype! I've got a few techniques to share.
Cards Against Humanity
Online Link (May not always work)!

Not even going to say what goes on in this game, but be warned - it's not for the faint hearted.
Elite: Dangerous
Steam Link!

I could talk for ages about this game. If you've got it, you'll know about the vastness of it, or what it even is. We'll hopefully meet up in Almad, maybe have a dogfight.
Wargame: Airland Battle
Steam Link!

"1985. After several months of tension between NATO and the Warsaw Pact, an incident in the North Sea suddenly sets the world on fire, starting an all-out war.
Command the entire military resources of the period, and plunge into the heart of a new dynamic campaign! With the arrival of air forces, select from a phenomenal array of 750 units (including tanks, planes, helicopters, and infantry) to build your army. Engage in spectacular battles with unmatched strategic depth, on huge battlefields as large as 150km², powered by a new graphics engine." - Store Page
Tiny Tanks

Great game, not much to say. Try it!
Portal 2
Steam Link!

Test subjects are woken from their enforced comas every few years, medical reasons, and so it is that Chell is awoken in a run-down, faded, eroding room by the frantic knocking on the door. It’s Wheatley, one of GLaDOS’s former personality cores, desperate to get your attention. He’s to be your guide, an occasional companion as you explore the derelict remains of the testing facilities, now overgrown with plants.
XCOM: Enemy Unknown
Steam Link!

It works. It better than works. XCOM is muscular, tense, thoughtful, mutable turn-based strategy with the dramatic, explosive presentation of a contemporary all-action game. Also, the environments get unavoidably trashed on a grand-scale, in a fashion all too rarely seen in either strategy or action games: these are true battlegrounds. No matter how well you do in a mission, you’ll leave a bombsite behind you. Frankly, you’re probably doing more harm than good to the world.
Payday 2
Steam Link!

"We were outside a jewellery store, on an easy mission plucked from the baffling server browser that I’ll be angry about in a bit. Owen was explaining how the heist would drop: he and Andy would take the back alley, kill the security guards and answer their pagers. I’d be out front with Emily, killing the two cops and taking out any the fleeing pedestrians who might report on us. Then we could grab the loot and escape.

Nothing could go wrong, apart from all the bits that went wrong.

But that’s the point." Taken from RPS!
Planetary Annihalation
Steam Link!

"Colonize solar systems, annihilate homeworlds, and exterminate your foes in epic interplanetary battles with multiple players and thousands of units. Planetary Annihilation takes strategy gaming to a never-before-seen scale -- and gives players powerful tools to control the action.

Blow up everything, anywhere; dominate with punishing spacecraft, robots, and other futuristic machines of war. Arm asteroids and send them on planet-destroying collision courses. And take over an entire galaxy in a dynamic single-player mode with procedurally generated content. Don’t just win, annihilate!" - Taken from Steam Store Page

So don't forget to contact Sir Bert, our Knight Interior (his details are above) should you wish to join the fun.

On behalf of the region, we look forward to seeing you on the gaming field!
