The posters are everywhere on the Montgomery College-Germantown campus. “Join the Smash Club,’’ they say with a picture of a videogame character. A passerby walks past and notices the poster. He stands there of about ten seconds turns around and then asks, “What is this Smash Club?”
Located in SA 104, the Smash Club is a club dedicated to the very popular video game series “Super Smash Bros.” Every Thursday, starting at 2pm, fans of the franchise come together to interact with each other, enjoy some games, and hold tournaments. Everyone is welcomed from tournament experienced veterans to casuals who just want to have fun.
“So what is Smash Bros?” The game is a hybrid of casual party game fun mixed with competitive fighting games. The main attraction of the game is the colorful cast of playable characters from the popular Japanese video game company Nintendo. Magical princesses, fire breathing monsters, sci-fi bounty hunters, and even a pet dog clash in colorful arenas to see whom the best fighter is.
If you are looking to have a great time or you just want to experience something new, then let out your inner fighter and settle it in the Smash Club.
