What is Polhacks?

Polhacks is a game festival dating back to 2011, arranged by Uppsala Union of Engineering and Science Students. It is a fun and social event with a focus on socializing and games that everyone can participate in and can find something to entertain themselves with. Whether you are an experienced gamer who has spend a lot of time gaming and maybe even on a competing level in some of the games, or if you've never played a game in your entire life, there will be something for you. There are several ways to participate, you can buy a computer spot to bring your computer and connect to the network and play your games with other participants or on the internet. You can also attend as a visitor and play video games on the consoles that are located in the activity area, borrow a board game/card game and sit with your friends or anyone else who happens to be sitting at a table and start playing or just hang with all the nice people who are there!

If you buy a computer spot, you will have the opportunity to participate in the available tournaments. It's tournaments in the biggest and most popular e-sport games with great prizes.

You who don't feel like competing a computer game will have plenty of competitions and other events to take part in outside of the digital world.
