To coincide with Teen Tech Week, on Friday March 15, 17 teens showed up to celebrate Nintendo's famous mascot, Mario. The main event was a Mario Kart Wii tournament, which lasted up until the very end of the evening. It was a pretty close game, and in the end David took home a $15 Gamestop gift card and John took home a $10. The first and second place winners also took home a random Mario Kart capsule toy, and all participants got Mario themed candy. In addition to Mario Kart Wii on the main projector, we had a Gamecube hooked up to a second projector and an N64 hooked up to the TV. There were also some activities for those not currently playing a game, such as a Mario-themed word search, a Mario maze and some coloring pages. It was a really fun night and I look forward to doing another soon!
