It has been a fun and busy summer. We hope you have had the time to drop by the Youth Services department. While looking for other items, did you take the time to play the Kinect games we have set up next to the ASK ME desk?
You will all be waiting to hear about the Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros Brawl tournaments we ran in July (!). They were as exciting as ever. You probably have seen in other blog entries that contestants are seeded into brackets, NCAA-style, with lower-scoring players matched up with the higher-scorers. Those can be most interesting games to watch, and July’s Mario Kart tournament was no exception. 14th-seed Vijay went all the way to the finals. 4th-seed Raifer won the tournament.
As always among gamers, good sportsmanship was in evidence. Winners and losers would high-five each other for playing a great game. Veteran players could be counted on to give tips to newbies on getting around obstacles and making higher scores. They were fun tournaments for everyone.
This winter’s tournament will be a Pokémon Battle Revolution on January 3. Bring your DSi and play against each other on the big screen. Watch this space for more details…
