UMASS is the Maths and Stats society at UWE.
Starting this year we want the society to both be an organisation to help with academic development as well as organising social events.
Almost everything UMASS does is for all students, mainly social events and interesting speakers.
A GAME OF DICE AND FIRE
The game is being run on 11th November from 10:00-16:00, 4Q69 on Frenchay campus.
Megagames are big scale games somewhere between a boardgame and a large roleplaying event. There is no official metric for winning or losing, you just try to forfil your own hidden agenda which could be as simple as "Don't Die".
A game of Dice and Fire is set during a medieval civil war in the "Game of Thones" universe before the events of the shows/books (So if you haven't seen it it's still cool :) ). To forfil your objective you could use your armies, the protection of the Kings, diplomacy or anything you can think of, it's all up to you. Mainly it's just a great experience and a whole load of chaotic fun (with cookies).
