I have seen Minecraft EVERYWHERE in the last few years, and kids seem to be loving it. Well, this week on October 14th, Minecraft is coming to the big screen and your kids will have a chance to play with kids from all over in theaters.
Minecraft is Coming To Theaters
Does your child love Minecraft? Starting this weekend on Saturday morning, instead of just playing at home, they can enjoy the game while meeting new friends as part of a local team representing Phoenix, thanks to Super League Gaming and their Minecraft City Champs tournament, run in partnership with Nickelodeon. It’s like little league for Minecraft players! Fun, positive and a special opportunity to get out and play with other kids their age. Past players clearly have had a GREAT time!
And one skilled player will win a HUGE prize for their family – 4 tickets to Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Awards 2018, inclusive of round trip airfare to LA, 2 nights in a hotel and a $500 spending allowance. There will be other giveaways for all players, including an official Phoenix Blaze team jersey!
While you may find it challenging to pull your little ones away from their iPad or Xbox, the truth is that playing Minecraft (and video games in general) can be beneficial for your kids on many levels, including problem solving, building self-confidence, enhancing creativity, understanding teamwork and improving academic performance.
Super League’s Minecraft City Champs tournament is in its 3rd season, so the company knows how to provide a well-organized experience for your Minecrafter. It’s ideal for kids 6-14, who will play alongside their peers and have the chance to compete against teams in cities across the country. The tournament takes place in a movie theater, which means they also get to see their favorite game on the big screen!
Day One is this Saturday, Oct 14th, when players will meet their teammates and get a chance to practice the custom game modes designed by Super League. The tournament then begins on Sat. the 21st and continues on the following three Saturdays.
Parents attend for free, although Super League provides full coverage if you need to drop off. Of course if you’re there, you can cheer on your Minecrafter to victory!
What Is Included?
Official Club Jersey – show off your city pride like a pro
90 minutes of exciting gameplay at each event
Chance to qualify for the Grand Final with your club
Free admission for all parents to support their hero
Unlimited high fives
This is a great chance for kids to work in a team to try and get their city on the map, and make it to the Grand Finale of Minecraft on the Big Screen! It’s great for socialization, and the grand prize winner wins a trip to the Kids Choice Awards in L.A.
