Welcome to The GameTZ Game Club! This is my attempt at forming an easy to get into book club type thing, but with games! Anybody and everybody is welcome to join in on the fun!

Rules are simple

- Each month a random game will be chosen, by myself, for the club to play. Games can vary from the beginning of gaming onward to current generation platforms. There's no limitations!

- You have from the 1st of every month to the end to complete the designated game. 100% completion isn't required. The point of the club is to provoke game discussion, as well as give GameTZ veterans and new users a place to mingle!]

- For every game completed, post a picture as proof of your completion with the date of completion in the photo.
Example: https://i.imgur.com/...

- You will be awarded with a badge each month you complete the game. All badges will be proudly displayed next to your name in the original post. As long as you "roll credits" the game is considered beaten!

- Every user to complete the game each month will be thrown into a drawing to win prizes! Users will be assigned a number and 3 numbers will be randomly generated in the beginning of the following month.

- Each month's prizes will vary. Prizes will be given out by either me or TradingFin. Sometimes physical, sometimes digital. If you would like to contribute, drop me a message. smile

- If you don't own the game, and you have access to it on another platform, you're welcome to play it that way. Just make sure that it's the same version, to qualify for the prize or badge.

- If you do not want to participate in the games, but would like to join in on the conversations, please do!

- If you would like to join, just post here, and I'll add you to the list of users. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or criticism, please don't hesitate to post them!

I'll bite!!! I need an excuse to actually play a game rather than buy them and put them on the shelf.

What if we don't all own the game? Just skip that month?

Thanks buddy!

If you don't own the game, and you have access to it on another platform, you're welcome to play it that way. Just make sure that it's the same version, to qualify for the prize or badge.

I should probably add that line into the OP.

I'm in, but what if the game is a ps4 game and I don't have it? I'm out that month correct?

Or are we talking... like.... emulation?

@Johnny There's no judgement on how you play a game. If you prefer to use original hardware, 3rd party consoles, emulation, etc. The point is to just get people playing games and having discussions with each other!

I'm thinking I made the badges too big. Do you guys think I should cut them down to 25x25?

When will you announce the game? A week or so out? Want to make sure we'll be able to get it if we don't have...

I guess I can join this. Not many systems in my home right now, but hopefully I'll be able to play one or two of the chosen games.
