About

The Guild of Geeks aims to help the geek community connect with each other by regularly organizing events and meet-ups. We facilitate social interaction and encourage an open and accepting atmosphere to help community members feel welcome and at home.


PAX South 2019

The Guild of Geeks holds weekly meet-ups in Austin, Texas, along with weekly online game nights. We organize groups to attend geek conventions and other events together.



The organization was originally founded in 2012 by Kevin Davis at Texas A&M University-San Antonio. A second branch was created in 2015 by Holly Phillips at Texas State Technical College in Waco, Texas. On May 23, 2018, the Guild of Geeks became an official non-profit organization in the state of Texas.


GoG's goal is to bring together like-minded geeks where they can play, converse, and share their love of games, movies, anime, and more in a friendly, non-biased atmosphere.


An organization with the intention of helping members communicate and make new friends, Guild of Geeks has expanded to include over a hundred of members across the country, connected together thanks to online chatroom servers and friends lists through various games.
