Some students are spending their dead week lunches brawling in the ASB room.

Only virtual blood is being spilled because they fights are taking place on the Wii. ASB is holding a Super Smash Bros. Brawl video game tournament,in the ASB room until Jan.9 between students of all grades. The tournament takes place everyday, with the exception of finals week.

The freshman class representatives, Tiffany Chung and Jimmy Rudger are putting on the tournament.

“As officers, we want the student population to be united through this activity. We figured we’d do it through something Carlmont students like,” said Chung.

The tournament puts two Carlmont players against two Carlmont players. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl players are able to battle in matches. The competition is an elimination based tournament that includes 42 two person teams.

The teams are made up of all different age groups, one of which is made up of Liam Jocson and Jonathan Li.

“We haven’t played yet, but it looks really fun,” said Jocson.

“This tournament is a fun activity for the gamers of Carlmont, but also is a game that people generally love,” said Chung.

“Super Mario Smash Bros. Brawl is a also a way for people to be involved in a school activity.

To win the tournament, you cannot lose a single game.

“The players will play the other teams in the bracket which will lead up to the semi-finals. If a team loses, they’re out. If they win, they keep playing,” said Rudger.

The winning team will also receive a prize.

“First place wins six movie tickets, second place wins four tickets, and third place wins two tickets,” explained Rudger.

Winning this tournament has about a $72 value for first place.

“One reason we are doing this tournament is for the prize. I really want the tickets,” said Jocson.

ASB hopes that the Super Mario Smash Bros. Brawl tournament will bring Carlmont gamers and non gamers together in a virtual battle, but also tangible friendship.
