The Computer Science Games are a collegiate competition that includes challenges from all aspects of computing. The Games are a weekend long thrill ride with logic puzzles, difficult algorithms, intense video game competitions, social activities, and of course, programming. Organized by students from different university every year, the CS Games is open to all undergraduate students.
