Game On! is a summer camp that's all about games! Video games, board games and role playing games are all on the list of games to play this summer. Games and in particular video games, have been shown to have a positive effect on the brain and various aspects of our lives. For instance, according to the Journal of Applied Developmental Psychology, "spatial visualization ability, such as mentally rotating and manipulating two- and three-dimensional objects, improves with video game playing."
This summer in Game On!: Role Playing Adventures, students will play the following 5 games:
Game 1: Super Smash Bros.
One of my personal favorite video games, Super Smash Brothers is an 8 player competitive tour de force that your child will enjoy. It boasts the most iconic characters, stages and items of Nintendo's expansive history. Moreover, it is easy for beginners to pick up and learn and boasts a deep level of mastery at advanced levels. Finally, it's one of the most popular games in competitive E-sports.
Game 2: Kirby
If your child appreciates cooperative multiplayer games, Kirby is the game for him/her. Become the hero Kirby and save Dreamland on this side scrolling adventure! Did you know Kirby is one of the few Nintendo characters having been around since the original NES generation? Wow.
Game 3: Raving Rabbids
Ready to get some movement? Raving Rabbids involves a 4 player multiplayer experience that enables your camper to play in 30 different mini-games. Best of all, your child will get up and jump around using the XBox Kinect sensor.
Game 4: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the Arcade Game
I'm dating myself here, but I recall this game in the arcade! It's an awesome 4 player experience where you play as your favorite Ninja Turtle (Raphael is the best imho) to fight against the mean Shredder and Kang! Experience retro-style gameplay in this masterpiece.
Game 5: Mariokart 8
Last but not least is MarioKart 8! Race against your favorite characters from Super Mario Bros. and use fun items like bananas to slow fellow racers. Play cooperatively in 4 player multiplayer or against each other in fun challenges.
These are just 5 of the many games your child will enjoy this summer is Game On camp! moreover, your camper will explore the world of Tabletop Roleplaying. We’ll let our imaginations run free as we take on the role of heroes destined to save the universe from catastrophe. You’ll learn to design your very own heroic character, customize your very own meeple miniature, and help craft the universe that our beloved heroes call home.
