8/7/15: Super League Gaming Giveaway

My kids are so in to Minecraft.  In fact Evan recently went to a Minecraft summer camp.  I just learned about Super League Gaming.  It is the world's first video game league that is done in a movie theatre!  Plus it is coming to Boston and I am giving away two tickets!
I love this idea.  A way for kids to socialize while playing their favorite Minecraft game.
What is Super League?
It is a weekly event that is happening in over 80 theatres including Regal, AMC, Cinemark, and iPic.  It is simple, players pick up tickets, bring their laptop and settle in for a tournament.  Tickets cost $20 for the summer sessions.  Parents get to observe for free.  There is no age limit, you just need to know how to play Minecraft.  I guess that counts me out.  More FAQ's here.
Super League President and COO Brett Morris is a dad. “It’s incredible how many kids are spending hours playing or watching YouTube videos of others playing this game [Minecraft] and we thought there just had to be a way to bring these kids, who were all playing alone in their rooms, together somehow,” he says. “As a parent, you want your kids to explore their passions, but when they’re by themselves, consumed in this other world, you can’t help but want them to be out with other kids their age, connecting over shared passions. That’s what Super League is meant to do, bring gamers together for some good old fashioned competitive fun in a safe environment.”
Super League’s proprietary technology allows players to merge on one screen (a big screen).  They can play normally on their own laptops, but everyone shares a third-person aerial view on the theatre’s screen.  Super League Minecraft is the first game being offered.
Super League’s Co-Founder and Chief Visionary, John Miller, says: “There are all kinds of leagues out there, but there’s still a vast group of gamers who don’t have any way of organizing themselves into recreational teams. We were just a group of dads who saw that void and thought this would be a great way to bring gaming to life.
Super League Gaming will be at the AMC Theaters of Boston Common, Braintree and Liberty Tree in August 2015.
