The Pole Game 2007 Edition for PC and XBox360 is now
The Legend of the Greasepole is a multimedia tribute to the ultimate
Frosh Week event. Rich with familiar sounds and imagery, it captures the
spirit that annually unites Queen's Engineers. It's all there: golden
science jackets and purple people; Clark Hall Pub and even the Golden Words
We've posted a compete copy of The Pole Game here on the EngSoc web
server. Copies of the Legend of the Greasepole CD are scarce, and we
wanted to make sure everyone gets a chance to relive the unexplainable.
In The Pole Game, just like at the real pit, the Frosh only succeed when
they learn to work as a team, taking advice from upper year students like
the game's Al "Pop Boy" Burchell. And just like real life, the game tells
the story of the Frosh's inevitable victory over the Pole. You can knock
them down, but you know they'll get back up again. And even when you're
teasing them, you know you really love 'em.
The Greasepole event is about
spirit, and team building, and working together toward a common goal.
It has brought Queen's Applied Science students together for decades, just
as it will next year. Long may the tradition live on.
The LegendWeb is also online!
July 2004, we posted the
LegendWeb here on the EngSoc web
server. Some highlights include McKay Savage's
photographic history of the
Greasepole, a sampling of stuff we amassed while
making The Pole Game, and Craig
Calvert's sonic and visual Gallery.
