The browser gaming event will be a fun interactive event, where everyone is invited to come and play some fun games, compete in competitions, and most of all, have fun!

Browser gaming refers to playing video games directly within a web browser without the need for additional downloads or installations. It allows players to access and enjoy a variety of games conveniently, using any device with an internet connection. Browser games come in various genres and styles, ranging from casual puzzles and strategy games to more immersive multiplayer experiences. They offer a diverse range of gameplay experiences without having to use storage space from the local computer.

One of the key advantages of browser gaming is its flexibility, offering players the freedom of enjoying gaming on the go, without being tied to a specific device or location. Additionally, browser gaming often features social elements, allowing players to connect with friends, compete in tournaments, and share achievements within online communities. Overall, browser gaming provides a convenient, accessible, and diverse gaming experience that continues to evolve with advancements in web technologies. 

The event is suitable for all ages and will include competitions in the three tournament games that we have chosen for the event:

Scoreboards for each game will be maintained, with prizes being awarded to the highest scoring player for each game. No skill, training or experience is necessary and beginners are both welcomed and encouraged!

Those who just want to come and play some games are welcome to come and show off your favourite browser games and socialise (but prizes will only awarded for the tournament games stated above).

Help will be on-hand before the event, to explain how to play the games if you need it. The event will last for 2 hours, and you will get roughly 1 hour and 15 minutes gaming time, before we start gaming there will be a breakdown on how the event will run, and after, would be the prize giving.

There is no need to bring your own device as lab computers will be provided, but feel free to bring your own portable computers if you wish

The event will be led by games master Nathaniel Sivyer supported by his colleagues from the committee of BCS Hertfordshire. Refreshments will also be available.
