Gaming Society will be hosting a Halo 3 Grifball Tournament!

What: Halo 3, Grifball!

Where: UMass Dartmouth Campus Center Commuter Cafe

When: Friday, April 23rd, 6:00pm

Cost: Free for everyone!

Grifball is a sub-game of Halo 3 in which teams of 4 square off against eachother in a completely open square arena. The object of the game is to score more points than the other team by the end of the round. Points are scored by running the Bomb into the opposing team’s goal. The carrier of the bomb is slightly faster and has enhanced shields but no weapons. Everyone else is equipped with a gravity hammer and a sword.

Teams must consist of 4 players and teams will square off Grifball style. This will be a best of 3 game set with double elimination brackets, time permitting. If you do not have all 4 players for your team, fear not! Come anyways and we will find people to fill out your team.

Any Questions? Contact Jonathan Martin (jmartin3@umassd.edu)

Ello.

Face here, heheheh…no, but Joe’s here. Sorry for the late Newsletter, there was a weekend long Anime Convention that I attended, along with most of the E-board… I think even most of Gaming Society went too. I believe it was called Anime Boston (AB), if my memory serves me correctly.

This week..
-Sunday’s WoD was canceled due to Eater//AB, but this week should be up again.

-Today, Anime Club will be showing it’s regular series and will be deciding the date of a movie night. There will be more info on this later e-mails.

-Tomorrow, Cards flying everywhere in Wednesday Night Magic!

-Thursday, General Gaming Meeting will be themed…. uhh I don’t know, we don’t want to recycle themes or make a random theme, so we’ll use an “All Theme” week. At this meeting YOU WILL BRING….EVERYTHING you want to play. If you want to play on a system that’s not Wii or Xbox 360, you may want to bring it (up to you) but if you’re lazy and just want to bring games, go on ahead and bring whatever game you want to play with everyone. We will also bring our games in case no one brings any…. Will be in the Campus Center unless told otherwise.

-D&D, doing it’s thing

I shall mention Halo, Grifball tournament on the 23rd and Smash Bros Brawl 2v2 tournament on the 30th but they’re not finalized yet. It’s just a heads up, yo.
