One of the highlights of this past year for our youngest son was his experience at Springdale Cinema’s Super League Gaming Event. Each Saturday, he was up at the crack of dawn, laptop bag packed, gaming t-shirt on, and ID lanyard around his neck.
He spent the next several hours joining other gamers at the cinema in a fun, interactive game on the big screen with superhero-themed maps and mods in a custom Minecraft adventure entitled the Rise of Heroes.
Throughout the game play, he collaborated with other members of his team to build, battle, and utilize their creativity and imagination. As a result of the experience, he made friends that he still keeps in contact with and plays Minecraft with online.
During the experience, the cinema was staffed with tech support assistants to ensure the players were able to connect to the server and troubleshoot any technical issues. The event was ideal for encouraging team building, problem solving, and camaraderie.
It was an experience that will definitely make his “Top 10 List” for 2016!
