National Gaming Day @ your Library

 

Saturday, November 15 was the first annual National Gaming Day @ your Library. Thanks to all who celebrated with us.

Give it up to for EVPL for being crowned the National Super Smash Bros. Brawl Tournament Champions in a 32-library contest. After a long day of battling riddled with communication and connection problems, EVPL emerged victorious. I want to thank all of you who competed in the preliminary Brawl tournament and to those who went on to represent EVPL in the national event. A special thanks goes out to Shonic and Brett for their endurance and competitive play. Ann Arbor District Library organized and managed the tournament. You can read a wrap up of the events here http://gtsystem.org/partnerland.

"THUS, the stage was set for the first-ever (albeit compromised) gtsystem National Brawl Championship Match, featuring the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library of Indiana, the Ann Arbor District Library of Michigan, Jerome Public Library of Idaho, and the East Flagstaff Community Library of Arizona. It was an intense set of matches, but when the dust cleared, the combined skill of the EVPL crew had emerged victorious, defeating AADL and becoming the first-ever gtsystem Brawl Champion, while FPL finished third, and JPL took fourth." - The Saga of the First Annual National Gaming Day.

Overall, we had a good time. We saw many new faces and played several games (even Uno). See you Saturday for another guest Otaku Council member presentation and more gaming.

 

Society for the Study of Modern Visual Culture will be cancelled due to Meet Your Legislators program.
