The Yu-Gi-Oh tournament was a hit. 15 students aged 8 through 14 competed for 3 and half hours to a gripping conclusion. One competitor was playing with a deck he had only acquired the day before. Another won all his matches except for the last one, coming in second-place. The winner hadn’t played for a year, and had come looking for new friends to play with. There were many requests for a repeat. We couldn’t have done it without our expert, Peter, who came from another library. ‘Want more tournaments? Please let us know.

We’re sorry if you missed our December Mario Kart Gaming Tournament. Surprises abounded again, as new players scored high against veterans during the preliminary rounds. The final race was neck and neck as Brett, who won in a previous tournament, combatted two brothers to determine first, second and third places. Brett took third, so brothers Ethan and Asher took home the first and second place Game Stop gift cards. Our next tournament will be on April 1. Don’t like Mario Kart?
