Exercism Game Night - 16 December 2022, after Community Call!

It may be close to the end of the year, but the fun doesn’t stop just yet…

@Meatball made a great suggestion about running a games night for anyone in the Exercism Community who’d like to connect a bit and have some light-hearted fun.

We thought it would be cool to run a trial night after a Community Call and see how it goes.

So here’s the plan…

The Game

Among Us is a game with a team of imposters whose goal is to eliminate the other team of crew-mates.

The Goal

The crew-mates goal is to find out who are the imposters. (It is rated Pegi 7, Pokemon has a Pegi 7 rating)


After the Community Call on the 16th December 2022 (approx. 19:00 UTC) and then depending on the popularity, at regular intervals in the New Year.

Available Platforms

You will need to download the game on your preferred device and create a user profile.

Among Us is free on Android and iOS but costs roughly 4-5$ on PC, Xbox, Playstation and Switch.

All platforms can play with each other.

How to Join

  • On the platform you wish to use, you will have to have an account.
  • It is as simple as downloading the game.
  • When you login, you will see a button which says online, press that button and in the bottom right corner you will see a globe icon and a region underneath, make sure that says Europe.
  • In the online page you will see 3 tabs, press on the private one and set the button to free-chat.
  • After that, insert the code which will be given later and press the arrow.
  • To avoid cheating, people only be allowed to talk under the “in-game” meeting, if you die, however, you are not allowed to talk until the game is over.
  • For people who don’t wish to talk, there will be an in game chat (It is recommended that you still is able to listen to the conversation)

We will paste the code in the thread of this post later.

Please give a :+1: on this post if you plan to attend, so we know numbers.

Any questions please shout!

We’re thinking about some future games nights and put out a poll for choosing which games might be fun to play…

Here’s the poll to go vote…this time next week we’ll have our game selected for the first of our games night! :ping_pong:
