The Esports Club and the Rainbow Alliance are hosting a game night on Thursday, Feb. 27 in the Endzone. Admission will be $5 and food from Abeetza and Buffalo Wild Wings will be served to everyone in attendance.
The event will feature different card and board games such as “Catan” and “Skull,” as well as party games from the Jackbox video game series, and “Super Mario Party.” Students are welcome to bring their own games from home.
The main event of the night will be a “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” tournament. The competition will feature the same rules found in Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) tournaments. All characters, including DLC fighters, are allowed to be used.
Prizes will be awarded to students who finish in the top three positions of the tournament. Third place will win a new speaker, second place will win a new keyboard and first place will win a gaming headset. Entry in the tournament is included with the price of admission.
The Esports club will use proceeds raised to help fund its Extra Life charity event, and the Rainbow Alliance will put it towards its annual Rainbow Formal event, according to Nicholas Frank, the vice president of the Rainbow Alliance.
The tournament will begin at 8 p.m. Students can sign up at the door or by visiting http://tinycc/LIUGameNight.
