Background

Like most great ideas that survive and thrive, Vandal Overnight Games (VOG) began grassroots-style and simply—from the genuine passion of one UI Information Technology Services (ITS) Manager Darren Kearney and one UI student, now UI grad and ITS employee Jacob Flynn. It has grown into the largest gaming event on the Palouse. These co-founders still coordinate Vandal Overnight which is held twice a year—during the fall and springtime. UI’s ITS Department hosts and coordinates the event.

The co-founders’ vision then is the same as it is now—offer an intimate, inclusive, free social event where students and the general community can come together to explore games, talk, connect and just have fun. From the start, the UI campus, leadership and area businesses rallied behind and partnered with the ITS-VOG Committee to evolve the event and keep it moving forward.

The first VOG was held in fall 2014—in a few rooms and on a modest budget—drawing about 350 participants when the expectation was 50. This fall’s event will be the 7th and at least 800 participants are expected. The event now spreads out over 100,000 square feet—and is quickly close to outgrowing its current location.
