Laurier CS Games Team

The Computer Science Games are a collegiate competition that includes challenges from all aspects of computing. The Games are a weekend long thrill ride with logic puzzles, difficult algorithms, intense video game competitions, social activities, and of course, programming. Organized by a different university every year, the CS Games invites undergraduate students from across North America to compete. Teams are composed from 6 to 10 skilled people, each participating in multiple simultaneous challenges.
