March 17th was an important date for those who enjoy fun and games, as the Latin Club is hosted its first Super Smash Bros. video game tournament. For those who haven’t heard of Smash Bros., there have been a series of games with that title on various game systems. They have caught the eyes and time of many a person, and have been the centerpiece for thousands of parties and get-togethers. It is known to be so addictive that one group had been rumored to play it nonstop for 24 hours and still not be sick of it. For those who haven’t played Super Smash Bros. competitively, here are several things that should be known. First of all, this is a competitive game and is not for the faint of the heart. It is amazingly fun, but for the noncompetitive type, five seconds could become very frustrating or frightening as Smash players are known to be very dedicated and have spent hours and hours training for moments such as these. Second, this is a fighting game. There is strategy and skill involved, however, and the will to go all out and dish out your best moves at the controllers is required.

Eager players rushed to Mr. Hodges room after school this Tuesday to “settle it in smash” with only five dollars and years worth of skill. The attendees were also treated to pizza, soda, and an in-house student who cooked pancakes and grilled cheese. The next tournament has yet to be announced, but when it comes . . . the school better be ready.
