# SUMS Meeting -- Cards (no talk this week)

Thanks to all those who turned up to Jonathan’s talk last Friday, we had a
turnout of almost 40 people at one point! As such, due to the sheer
awesomeness that it was, nobody seems to be game enough to follow it up with
a talk this week.

So this week we’re taking another small break from the talks. Instead, this
Friday will be cards day. In other words, we’ll be pretty much playing card
games for an hour.

Any card games can be played, be it Poker, Bartog, 500, or even that 3-card
version of Poker that Jonathan mentioned last week! (But no betting actual
money please, maths students aren’t meant to be all that rich!!!)

Also, there are a couple of short, amusing maths films that I have seen and
wish to show. You may have already seen them before, but regardless I think
you will like them.

Also, for those of you who have friends that only find out about SUMS via
the couple of posters that we put up around the Carslaw building, we won’t
be putting up any posters this week. Firstly, because it is difficult to
create a poster for just playing cards, and secondly because we (as in the
executives) want to see if the posters actually affect the turnout. And
also, we can’t be bothered with the posters this week.

Anyway, feel free to come along, it should be pretty fun!

Gareth
