Google Games is finally making its way to UT! Do you have what it takes to be a superhero? Or do your skills lurk on the dark side, with your inner villain waiting to take stride? Whether you are good or evil, battle it out against other teams in trivia, puzzles, word association and Lego building. In addition to the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat, lunch and swag will be provided to all participants and prizes for top teams.

Find four friends (CS background strongly recommended), come up with a team name and each register individually here by Wednesday, September 11th. Can't find a team? Sign up as an individual and we will do our best to put you in a team with others.
