GD44 Welcome Party

It was that time in the term again, where the students gathered together around a TV to play some games, fill their bellies with pizza and welcome the new term to the school. I am talking of course of the VFS Game Design Welcome Party.

This time around the school welcomed the GD 44s to a new and exciting year as they played video games with the other classes and introduced themselves on the stage so everyone could know who they are.

There was a Smash Bros. Wii U doubles tournament and a Mortal Kombat X singles tournament, where the winners won, in addition to the bragging rights that come with victory, a 20$ Starbucks gift card and a small golden trophy. PG05 Robert and Manuel won their second consecutive smash tournament and GD42 Spencer won his third Mortal Kombat tournament (no one seems to be able to stop this man)!

For the students who didn’t feel like competing, or those that wanted a more relaxed and social gaming experience, there was also The Resistance, Munchkins, FIFA, Halo, Smash Bros. Melee.

Finally we can’t forget the food, which included cookies, vegetables, chips, drinks and Dominos pizzas, a VFS first. That is some great fuel for gaming!

All that is left to say is thanks to all the students who came and enjoyed a great night of gaming and fun with us, and most importantly, welcome to the GD44; we all expect great things from you
