Nintendo Club is a returning club that gives students an opportunity to hang out as well as participate in a community with other students that also enjoy video games.

Nintendo Club started in 2013 and has approximately 25 members with the first meeting of the year scheduled for December.

It doesn’t require a lot of effort to get something very valuable and rewarding from this club.

“It’s very casual and it doesn’t really take up a lot of time and it’s just once a week,” Supervisor of the Nintendo Club Bree Rolfe said. “They just come and play and they can show off their skills in front of their classmates. It’s a nice sense of community.”

This club is also a way to put yourself out there and become a better version of yourself.

“Playing video games can be a very isolating experience,” Rolfe said. You just kind of stay and play by yourself and the Nintendo Club is a way for them to get out of it and socialize a bit, or meet new people who have like the same interests.”

By playing fun and interesting video games with people in real life as well as interacting face to face, a healthier environment and a more stable community are created for the future.

“This club may benefit me if there are members of the club who can help me with strategy and skill when it comes to video games,” New member of Nintendo Club Belinda Lin said.  “It improves my hand-eye coordination, problem-solving skills, and can help me better process and develop an understanding for new information,”

This club will be having some new major changes for an enhanced and upgraded look.

“So, I think I’m going to try to raise money to get them a Wii so that they can play. Depending on how much money we might try to do, like a second set up in the back of the room, so more kids can be involved, because there’s only so many you can have,” Rolfe said.

The nature of the Nintendo Club is very relaxed.

“We don’t really have many rules except don’t be loud and annoying,” President of Nintendo Club, Ford said.

A new improvement is that Nintendo Club will now be Smash Club, because of a communal decision to change the name.  

“The name change came about because we decided to make the club more focused on just Smash Bros, rather than all Nintendo games,” Ford said. “Originally, it was more varied, but now, with the new game coming out we really want to just focus on that one game.”
