Through events like stargazing trips, observation on campus, and “astrotalks” given by guest speakers, the club makes astronomy accessible and enjoyable for anyone– no telescope experience required! The club has its own telescopes and observation equipment, made available to students during our stargazing events. Everyone is welcome in our club, whether you’re an amateur astronomer, or just curious about space.

McGill Students’ Mafia Club

11779804_10153540355882835_351425587777564714_oThe McGill Mafia Club is a social club open to anyone who wants to play or learn how to play the game “Mafia,” also known as Werewolf. Mafia is a social psychology game that pits the uninformed majority (villagers) against an informed minority (mafia). Villagers must guess who the mafia are among them while attempting to avoid being killed themselves.

In addition to playing mafia, we also play other related intrigue games such as One Night Werewolf, Two Rooms and a Boom, and The Resistance. There are usually snacks to go around during the meetings. Outside of our regularly scheduled gatherings, we host multiple social events a year like parties, ice skating, and laser tag to name a few. We’re open to anyone who would like to join. Come for a meeting and try it out!

We meet on the McGill campus but we aren’t exclusive to McGill; we invite students from other schools, like Concordia, and anyone in Montreal to join.
