The strategic game society and oldest society of SIB ‘Panem et Circenses’ is accepting new members! Panem is an easy-going, fun and low-key society, where we get together once a month to have dinner and play various kind of games.
Do you like playing strategic (board) games, lots of food and beverages and good company? Then you should definitely check out Panem et Circenses. In the past we have played games like Exploding Kittens, Unstable Unicorns, Cards against humanity, Machiavelli and Catan. It does not matter if you are an expert who knows all games by heart or if you have never even played a card game before, we welcome all players!
Join the Gambling Society for some Black Jack, slot machines, roulette or poker! The Gamblers Society aims to organize at least one gambling event each month. The main activities will consist of casino visits and poker tournaments. In international relations it is after all extremely important to be able to deal with odds that are against you. Besides that, you might be able to impress Putin or a questionable dictator with your skills. Gambling can raise the appetite, so before casino visit or poker tournaments we will often consume a nutritious meal.
The Cultural Society lets you experience Amsterdam in a completely different way. Being one of the youngest societies of SIB, is our mission to bring you close to Amsterdams cultural heart. Be it the visit to an Exhibition such as the World Press Photo 2018 or a joint evening to see a play at the Carreé, we offer it all. Once a month there is a culturally orientated activity. Which one? YOU DECIDE! The members choose themselves what they would like to do, the majority decides.
Would you like to become a member or apply for one of these positions? Do you want to know more or do you have any questions please contact our Commissioner of Internal Affairs by sending an email
