Here comes your friendly neighborhood superhero! | Spider-Man Random Fandom

By Jessica

Spider-Man: Homecoming was released earlier this year and nerds and geek alike fell in love with all the characters.

I, personally, don’t have an opinion about the movie yet because I haven’t watched it (I know. Shame on me.). However, I have a major celebrity crush on Tom Holland. I mean, who doesn’t?

In celebration of the movie (yes, we know it’s a little late), December’s Random Fandom will be Spider-Man themed! Because we know there are a lot of fans of the older Spider-Man movies, this RF is not limited to the recent movie.

As always…

A Quick Overview of the Program:

Who: you and your buddies
What: Spider-Man Random Fandom
When: Thursday, December 14 (4:00-5:30)
Where: Flower Mound Public Library in the Program Room (near the restrooms)
3030 Broadmoor Ln.
Flower Mound, TX 75022

Activities:

To start off, there will be a trivia in related to Spider-Man. From what I heard, it might be a Kahoot, so be prepared to jam out to the bomb Kahoot soundtrack!

There will also be a silly string target practice outside where players have cans of silly string to spray at villains. The silly string will act like Spider-Man’s webs that shoot out of his wrists. Whoever successfully defeats all the villains in the shortest amount of time wins. Just remember, do not spray your fellow players with the silly string!

In honor of the viral .gif of Spider-Man dancing (pictured above) that supposedly can go with any music, there will be a dance. It might be a dance battle. It might be just a dancing fest. Who knows? You’ll have to attend to find out!

Just like in the beginning of the movie, there will be a task to steal Captain America’s shield! On top of that, there will be a mini scavenger hunt in search for Stan Lee, who made a cameo in the recent movie.

And because we’re a bunch of nerds, we are also going to play Superfight. I’m going to try and TL;DR the rules of the game:

Basically, there are a stack of white cards and a stack of black cards. The white cards have characters on them (ex. ninja) while the black cards have powers on them (ex. ability to freeze things). When it’s their turn, the player picks up three white and three black cards. They have to choose one white and one black one, set them face down, and return the remaining unused cards into the deck. The next player does the same. Then both players turns over the chosen white card (to reveal their character) and then have to choose a black card from the deck at random to add to their skill. Then they reveal everything to the table (the rest of the players waiting their turn) and have to plead their case as to who would win in an one-on-one battle. Whoever the table chooses wins the round. If you want to official rules of the game (because I know I’m terrible at explaining things), click here to go to the official rules page. All you need to know is that the game is tons of fun.

In addition to all the fun games, there will be web serum punch served (don’t worry, you don’t have to be bitten by a radioactive spider to enjoy it) and maybe get to watch the Honest Trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming.

It doesn’t matter than you’ve never watched a Spider-Man movie in your whole entire life (like myself). You can still attend Random Fandom! It’s just a program to spend time with like-minded people and have fun. Don’t forget to mark December 14th on your calendar and hope to see you there!

Doombringer presents: Legendary Marvel

d635cbab0876d05938d276f80e0416ffMy name is Abel Kim, a board game, card game, and League of Legends/Hearthstone/Overwatch freak. In honor of International Tabletop day on April 30, I will be talking about some of the games that I am planning on bringing to the table.

In today’s review I will be talking about the first board game I ever got: Legendary Marvel. Firsly, here is my origin story: I was scrolling down Youtube when I saw Markiplier’s face in the picture of a Tabletop video for Legendary Marvel. I clicked the video to see the magnificent Warfstache but was instead entertained by the antics of the guest stars and the host Wil Wheaton (who was btw an actor in Star Trek and Leverage and who knows what else). Here is a link to the video that inspired me to buy the game: “Maria is love. Maria is life.” -fake Markiplier quote 2015

Now on to the real review. Continue reading

Top 15 of 2015

It’s time for the obligatory top 15 of the year 2015. Now, as a disclaimer, not all books came out in 2015; this is just a list of my favorites that I read this year.

15. The Misadventures of Edgar & Allan Poe by Gordon McAlpine

edgar & allen poe

So yes, this is a middle-reader book, but when you’re aiming to be a children’s librarian, you’re never too old to hang out in the “kids’ section.” Anyway, this is the first book in a series about these two twins, Edgar and Allan, named for their ancestor (of course), Edgar Allan Poe. These two aren’t just any ordinary twins, though. They’re so similar and so close that they can read each other’s minds and know where the other is if they’re apart (they may be closer than Fred and George Weasley… although I doubt it). This interests some scientists, who wish to experiment on the boys to see exactly how powerful their connection is.

It’s a really cute, fun, and short read, and I really enjoyed it! I wasn’t itching to read the next book, though (although I am older than the intended age, which might have something to do with that).
