I don’t understand these kids today.
In my day, we played video games alone wired and connected to oversize television consoles. For that reason, we were way more grounded when it came to gaming.
Today’s gaming generation plead for their parents to watch them. These young gamers want to bond as they build a virtual world.
In my day, we jumped over walls, not built them.
Does this gaming scenario sound familiar?
If you’re kids are anything like my kids, then they are OBSESSED with Minecraft and while I don’t quite get the game and its components, I appreciate the educational value it offers and teaches my kids through critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
Plus, there’s a whole socialization component to the game that its predecessors lacked (the old school video games from our day). This generation of gamers, particularly the Minecraft kids, share strategies and converse about Creepers and pitch axes. Today’s Minecraft gamers read online tutorials and watch how to YouTube videos.
Given all the components that make Minecraft unique plus all the online tutorials and gamer camaraderie, Super League Gaming is like Minecraft on steroids. Think Minecraft Minor Leagues.
Super League Gaming is the first in-theater gaming league for kids set inside major movie theaters across the country. It’s a great opportunity for parents to get their gamer kids out of the house for a night of interactive gaming in a safe setting where like-minded Minecraft gamers can socialize, move around the theater and compete in a recreational setting.
Super League Gaming offers an after-school enrichment program that leverages Minecraft on a BIG screen for a social, fun and interactive learning experience. Super League Gaming takes Minecraft one step further by assigning participants to teams to teams of 4-7 where they work together towards a common goal.
Starting October 6th, Super League Gaming hits theaters in Tampa to bring together gamers from all over Tampa Bay. Most players are 6-18 years old, but all Minecraft players are welcome. Parents are even invited sit with their gamers for FREE.
