Game Club paired with Dice to Mice in downtown Spearfish for a weekend of Magic: The Gathering on April 21-23. Starting with a midnight pre-release of the new Amonkhet block for MTG, half the night's tournament entries were Game Club members! 26 like-minded nerds got together for a late night showdown of spells and monsters, not to mention good times and junk food. D2M had another standard tournament on Saturday, and then a pile of us came back for the Two-Headed-Giant round on Sunday.
What was great about the event is that about half of the Game Club kids that took part in the event are new to the game (I've only been playing a couple of months, myself). The social aspect of getting together outside of school with other members of the gaming community is what makes this a win-win!
