Music to my ears UB to host

video game


By Analicia Haynes
Editor-in-Chief | @Haynes1943

NAYELI VA ZQUEZ | THE DAILY EASTERN NE WS For the first time in five years the University Board
will be partnering with Eastern’s Gamer’s Guild and
David Frye, a junior social sciences major, plays the ukulele while Christina Peter, a grad student majoring in vocal performance, sings Monday the ESports Club (both are registered student organiza-
afternoon on the Doudna Steps. tions) to host the 5th annual video game tournament.

“Pixelpalooza” will be from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Tuesday in the University Ballroom of the Martin
Luther King Jr. University Union.

Sienna Mark, the UB events coordinator, helped
organize the event and said it is a way to encourage
students to get out and meet other people who are in-
terested in gaming and to have fun.

She said the tournament is designed for people to
come and go as they please.

“We have eight TVs with various gaming sys-
tems for people to choose from and an assortment
of games and snacks,” Mark said. “We will be hav-
ing mini 'Super Smash Brothers’ tournaments, and
the winner of each tournament will be entered into a
drawing for the grand prize.”

Mike Mifflin, the complex director of Lincoln,
Stevenson and Douglas Residence Halls and the ad-
viser for the Gamer’s Guild, said other games that
will be played include sports games such as Madden
and "NBA2K," "Mario Kart," "Apex Legends" and
"Mortal Kombat/Soul Caliber 6."

Mifflin said he has been helping with a bit of the
planning alongside Mark, such as helping decide
what games should be offered, what food to have and
how to advertise the tournament.

“I’ll also be attending to support the event and talk
to students about the Gamer’s Guild and the ESports
(RSO),” he said.

Mark said any Eastern student can attend, and she
called it a great opportunity to make new friends, test
out new games and get free food in addition to vari-
ous prizes for those who attend.
