Minecraft enthusiasts can join a four-week Minecraft competition league that begins at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 20, at the Farmingdale Multiplex Cinemas, 1001 Broad Hollow Rd. Players will face off against friends in the theater and against thousands on the world leader board, while also watching the action unfold live on the big screen.

Each week, up to 100 players in theaters around the country will play both individually and as members of teams as the game shifts between Minecraft’s creative and survival modes. Parents and caregivers are invited to stay and cheer on their gamers for free.

More than 80 theaters across North America have installed Super League’s proprietary game server and will play Super League’s never-before-seen, custom-designed Minecraft maps and mods. The 90-minute, space-themed Minecraft experience, titled Galactic Mission, tests players’ creativity, critical thinking and teamwork. Thousands of gamers across hundreds of teams will be vying for the coveted Super League championship trophy and $15,000 team scholarship.

For more information and to participate in the league, visit SuperLeague.com. The league costs $60 per player and players must come with their own fully charged, Wi-Fi compatible laptops and must have Minecraft pre-downloaded. Target demographic is between ages 7 and 15, but all ages are allowed.
