Mini "MiiVision" Meet 22/07/2014

We had one or two unofficial mini meets in June. One was because it was my birthday and I wanted to spend the day doing what I loved, another for Tomodachi life as it was one of the newest releases with it being out on the 7th of the month.

We also had a reschduled Mario Kart 8 StreetPass UK final, where our Jack came 3rd which was a pretty commendable position given the talent that was out there!

It had been a crazy month with so much happening that I just didn't have time to report on everything that on to the MiiVision meet!


We met in our usual spot in Varsity at 5pm, and welcomed a few new faces! There were 12 of us in total, and although a couple had to leave earlier, most stayed until the end at about 10pm.

The Tomodachi Life fans started out by trading items between each other. I especially appreciated this, as to date I hadn't been able to try out the local play feature of the game, and I had been slowly building up explorers who were all waiting patiently at the harbour. (Which they have now all finally left to go on their travels! I also had quite a few outfits traded including the hot dog suit and a Royal Crown!)

We got in a couple of Grand Prix on Mario Kart 7 and then some of us settled down for some food.
After the food was out of the way and we had a bit more space, we played 8-player Tetris and then set up for the MiiVision voting.

There were three tables, and in turn we took an iPad round with the 4 entries on and let people consider their options. They were then given a few minutes to vote for their favourite one by number.
We counted up the votes, and decided we would also do a short online poll until the Friday to see if more people wanted to vote who couldn't make it to the mini meet. (So the result will be added shortly.)

Once the voting was all done and dusted, people decided which game to play. A couple of guys played Four Swords, while other discussed Animal Crossing and Tomodachi Life. We did a bit more of Mario Kart 7, and then when the few had to leave a bit earlier, we finished off with a short round of Luigi's Mansion 2.

It was a fun meet, and I hope the new members enjoyed the experience and will return again soon! :D

It is now less than two weeks to our biggest challenge of the year. Who decided to try and persuade the UK that Bangor was a better place to hold an event than London??! Yep, yours truly. (Yes I know that London will always be superior, but who says we can't try!)
Watch this space for how that goes on the 2nd August! It's going to be amazing! (Fingers crossed for no technical hitches of course!!)
