The "unboxing special" for Game Club's recent Spearfish Foundation for Public Education grant! A huge thanks to the Foundation for their generous donation to Game Club and to Dice-to-Mice for hooking us up with 50 brand new games!
Also with Game Club, we are again partnering up with Dice-to-Mice for the next Magic: The Gathering pre-release event. The cost to enter a tournament is $30, to be held Friday 9/22 at midnight, and Saturday/Sunday afternoons. That gets any participants a pre-release pack for the new Ixalan block (6 booster packs, a promotional rare foil card, and a spindown die, so it pays for itself). Anyone interested can sign up at Dice-to-Mice or, for convenience, I have signups in my classroom, too.
This past spring we had about 20 Game Club regulars go to the Friday midnight and Sunday 2-Headed Giant events for the Amonkhet block. It was a blast and we got several new player hooked on the game! If you're new to MTG, stop in my room or Dice-to-Mice for a free welcome deck. There's lots of players who would love to show you the ropes.
So squeeze every last drop of summer revelry out of the next two weeks, because it is almost over. I look forward to seeing everyone!
Just over halfway through summer, it's time to at least see if your cognitive machinery is still there. Only 41 days until classes start and I always hit the ground running, so be ready!
Over the next few weeks I will be updating the website, but much of what you find here will remain the same for the 2017-2018 school year, if you have not been in my classes before and want to read up. A couple items for kids to be aware of moving into August:
"The worst thing about the zombie apocalypse will be pretending that I'm not excited."
