CP* 2021

Are you a down-to-earth person with a good sense of humor? Are you a fan of nerd culture (or eager to become one)? Want to become part of a tight-knit, supportive, intellectual community? If so, then you should definitely come to our events and get to know us!


Discord

We have a Discord, which we use for everything from having nerdy discussions on various topics, to playing Among Us or Minecraft, to simply posting memes. If you would like to join our Discord, email us at et-rush-chairs@mit.edu! We will also post our Discord link in the Zoom chat for each of our events.

Schedule

Because of COVID, all of our events this semester will be online. We'll host almost all of our events on Zoom at the times listed below. You can also join our Discord server to hang out and chat with us - ask any of us for a link at our events.

Telephone Pictionary Charades
10 PM - Midnight Eastern, Thursday 4/15
Act out a drawing based on acting based on a drawing... can you guess the original message after all these layers of indirection?

Board Games, Word Games, Variants, and More!
11 AM - 3 PM, Friday 4/16
We love games -- come by any time Friday afternoon to play them with us! We love board games like Splendor, Catan, and chess, card games like Tichu, word games like Just One and Punday, and hidden traitor games like Mafia, the Resistance, and Among Us. Don't know the rules? Even better -- play with others who don't know them and cause chaos! Know the rules too well? Never fear, we're always ready to try new variants!

Lightning Talks and Powerpoint Karaoke
10-11:30 PM, Friday 4/16
Come learn about everything from special relativity to the history of Star Wars to how to tie your shoes faster in five minutes or less! You'll learn something new in a flash. Want to teach us something, too? Go for it! Don't have anything to teach? Our interns have thrown together some slides for you -- but they just look like random images! Think on your feet to come up with a semi-coherent explanation; or sit and laugh as someone else does the same!

Board Games, Word Games, Variants, and More!
1-8:30 PM, Saturday 4/17
We love games -- come by any time Saturday afternoon to play them with us! We love board games like Splendor, Catan, and chess, card games like Tichu, word games like Just One and Punday, and hidden traitor games like Mafia, the Resistance, and Among Us. Don't know the rules? Even better -- play with others who don't know them and cause chaos! Know the rules too well? Never fear, we're always ready to try new variants!

Only Connect
8:30-10 PM, Saturday 4/17
Based on the British game show: team up to find connections between seemingly unrelated trivia! Bonus points for obscurity and British accents.

Baba is Number Puzzles
10-11:30 PM, Saturday 4/17
We love puzzles! Solve some puzzles with us! Try some from hit puzzle game Baba is You where the rules of the game are part of the game itself and can be changed as easily as pushing a block, or some fun number/logic puzzles like Sudoku, Kenken, Nurikabe, Nonogram, and Slitherlink!

Fermi Questions
2-3:30 PM, Sunday 4/18
Estimate stuff to within an order of magnitude, for sufficiently ridiculous values of ""stuff"". A past question: if you melted down the statue of liberty and used all the copper for making pennies, how many statue of liberty foam hats could you buy at the tourist gift shop using those pennies?

Puzzle Hunt
5-7 PM, Sunday 4/18
Puzzles can be anything; you might not know the rules or structure, and it's never the same twice. Grab a pencil and some paper, join a team, and try to be the first to solve our Hunt.
