There are NO SPOTS LEFT on our September tournament roster.  All 32 spaces are filled!
If you want to play in September’s tournament, show up at the Teen Room at 11am on Saturday, September 6.  Your name will be placed on a waiting list.  If any of the 32 players who have signed up for the tournament do not show up by 11:25am we will use this waiting list to fill in the tournament roster. 

REMEMBER, just because you are on the waiting list does not mean you will be guaranteed a place in the tournament.  If you are the first person on the waiting list and one person doesn’t show up to check-in, well then, you get to play.  If you’re the fifth person on the waiting list and only two people don’t show up for check-in, sorry, you won’t be playing that day. 

Sign-ups for October’s tournament will begin after the September tournament.  Be on the look-out for that sign up sheet so you can guarantee yourself a spot on the October roster!

Brawl Tournament Winners!!

This is probably the most important information we’ve posted to the blog all summer and I’m ashamed to say it’s taken me longer than it should have to get it up here!

Saturday, August 2, was the first Super Smash Bros. Brawl Tournament in our video game tournament season. The season runs from August to December, with December’s tournament being a Grand Championship competition between all the monthly winners.

We had 22 competitors on Saturday! 32 people originally signed up to compete, but not everyone showed up Saturday morning. Keep this in mind in case you forget to sign up for September’s tournament–you might be able to play as a walk-in if someone doesn’t show up!

The competition was fierce and the Teen Room was louder than it has ever been. I’m sure people browsing the Nonfiction shelves upstairs could probably hear us through the floor :p

Reading while waiting for the next battle.

Sephi can't believe what she's seeing.

Sephi can't believe what she's seeing.

A lot of people who played in Saturday’s tournament have met Sephi. She had been working diligently to unlock all levels and characters on our two copies of Brawl for the tournament. Many of you got a chance to play against her and help her unlock items. A lot of you thought she was going to take home first prize.

Ready to hear which 16 players get to move to the next round.

Out of the 22 players, 16 moved on to the one-on-one final elimination rounds. There was an upset and Sephi didn’t dominate.

The final standings are as follows:

3rd Place: Sephi

2nd Place: The Chosen One

1st Place: David K.

These players will not be eligible to participate in the next 3 tournaments. This gives everyone else a chance to place 1st, 2nd, or 3rd and compete in the December Grand Championship Tournament! Stop by the Teen Desk to register. We’ll have more details for you soon of how the September tournament will be run. And yes, you can bring your own Wii-mote/Nunchuk/Game Cube controller!

gaming tonight!

Hey teens and tweens!

I bet you all had a blast gaming with your younger [and older] comrades last week. This is just a reminder that tonight’s gaming goes back to normal with seperate sessions for teens and tweens.

Tweens are from 4 to 6 tonight and Teens are from 6:30 to 8:30 tonight, as usual.

And don’t forget we have new games! So get ready to try some new things or just show off some skills that library kids may not have seen. [I know a bunch of you must be Call of Duty 3 pros and Super Smash Bros. Brawl champions.]  

Watch out! Some kids have been coming to the library and practicing a lot during open gaming hours.

Are you a fan of all things Nintendo? All Nintendo characters and all weapons combine in Super Smash Brothers Brawl for endless possibilities. But I’m sure you all know that… ESPECIALLY since you’re reading a post about a Super Smash Brothers Brawl TOURNAMENT.

That’s right the library is ready to start hosting video game tournaments. [Since many of you have been asking.]

On a still-to-be-decided date and time the teen program will host a Super Smash Bros. Brawl tournament where you guys can come, hang out with your friends and show off your mad Super Smash Bros. Brawl skills. Enjoy snacks and socialize while you’re here…. maybe even check out a book?

Details on the tournament are coming soon so keep checking back on the blog or ask next time you teen stop by the library to check out more books. Until then hone your video game skills and get ready.
