ATC & This is Geek Partner for Gaming Event

December 10th 2014, 10:23 CST

Anime Twin Cities is proud to announce its partnership with This is Geek by being a sponsor of Digital Destruction at the Ramada Mall of America, May 8th and 9th, 2015.

Digital Destruction will feature LAN, console and tabletop gaming, as well as gaming tournaments and arcade machines. You can also talk to representatives from the gaming industry about how they got started in the field. There is a small fee for entering the tournaments; however, this fee is discounted if you have an Anime Detour 2015 badge. General admission is FREE!

This is Geek is getting help from Anime Twin Cities to make Digital Destruction a (mostly) free event. If you also want to help them reach their goal, they are running a GoFundMe with rewards such as stickers, shirts, and buttons, in addition to their eternal gratitude.
