Names of the Game

The Chapter Historian maintains our official (read: “noble and illustrious”) history. More amusing tales, if less appropriate for general conversation, are commemorated by the “Names of the Game.” Thumper constitutes our official oral (read: “vulgar and suitable for drunk conversations”) history.* Here follow the names of the game as recorded by Jason Cho '98 O-1512 and Henry McNulty '69 O-1043; registered members may also peruse their meanings. Please send corrections or additional information to historian@iswza.org.

* While the playing of drinking games by chapter members is nowadays prohibited by fraternity rules, we see no harm in continuing the tradition of assigning names of the game.
