What if I make a girlfriend/boyfriend while at Game Knights?
While Game Knights was created to encourage socializing with others using video games as a means. Dating is allowed, but discouraged. Since it's been known to cause problems during break ups if they ever happen. We love to hear about success stories with many relationships being started with Game Knights. However we've also lost many members who had bad break ups. So please be very careful with the relationship(s) you create. While easier said than done, try to determine to stay friends after a break up if your relationship doesn't work out. PARENTS: discretion is advised when dropping off children older than 13. Teach your kids about proper relationship etiquette.

Can I bring my own equipment to Game Knights?
Yes! People bringing their own equipment is the heart of Game Knights. 10 years ago when we started with 6 college friends. To the city wide organization you see today. Bringing your equipment is always encouraged to share. We have our own equipment like Guitar Hero, Arcade Machines, and many games and consoles, but it's encouraged to bring your own to help you share your experiences with others more easily.

Can I bring friends over?
Yes! bring as many as you'd like.

PROCEDURES FOR STOLEN/LOST/BROKEN EQUIPMENT

LCGK is not obligated to replace the item, however, there are some things we can do to help.

1. If everyone agrees that the lost/broken/stolen item incident is legitimate, and the Game Knight is a honest/trustworthy/respectable member, we can all fund raise or pitch in a certain number of dollars per interested member to help replace the item to it's best possible condition.

2. Fund raised money is not to be used for personal gains, but to benefit the club, if we all help and pitch in, we can buy our own equipment so no one feels the need to bring their own equipment from home.

3. The Officers and/or interested members in helping out to find the lost or stolen item can investigate and ask around to find the culprit or the item lost in the area.

4. This last way to help is the most important one: PLEASE DO NOT STEAL!!! This does not just hurt the few members that actually contribute, but discourages others to keep bringing their equipment to share in the future. Which is the source of our success.
