SUAAB Stressbusters Event: CALAMARI GAME

Wednesday, December 1, 2021 at 12:00pm

SSA Gaming Wall Lounge (SSA 12.310)

Join SUAAB for the ultimate Stressbusters Event on December 1, 2021, from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the SSA Gaming Wall and the SSA Auditorium Lobby.

You are invited to play the game. Here’s the premise:

You are a UTD student four years deep into your studies with finals approaching, all hope seems lost, but that is until you are invited to play a series of children's games for a chance to win the ultimate prize.

After accepting the offer, you are invited to an unknown location (The Student Service Addition Gaming Wall… Sssshh) among 455 other people who are all in a similar situation.

You are always kept under watch by (highly encouraged) masked guards in pink t-shirts, with the games overseen by the Front Man, who wears a black (highly encouraged) mask and black uniform.

The students soon discover that losing the games result in an additional week of finals, with each eliminated player adding to the potential chance to win the ultimate prize. Will you find allies who will help you survive the twists and turns of the game?

Welcome to the CALAMARI GAME (like the Squid Game, but fried and seasoned with a zesty lemon wedge).


Games include:

Red Light Green Light

Tug of War

Giant UNO

Giant Operation

Rock Paper Scissors …and Many games of Deceit, Treachery, and One-Uppance!
