Royal LePage Prince Rupert and Good Times Games teamed up to bring Prince Rupert two free-to-play Kaijudo Community events last weekend.

Friday night was the scene of the second ever Ladies Night Kaijudo event and the turnout was great as female gamers as young as six all the way up to moms came out to learn the game and enjoy matches in a fun social setting. The night was sponsored by Royal LePage and had prizes for everyone who came to play. Naomi Vandermeer and Olivia Godin ran the event with Good Times owner Rob Gruber on hand as the only male permitted.

“We had a lot of fun, it is a great opportunity for some of our regular kid’s moms to learn to play, a good way to connect with something important in their children’s lives and be a part of it,” said Gruber.

“It was popular, and certainly won’t be the last time we host Ladies Night.”

Following the successful Ladies Night, Saturday offered a free to play event with lunch and prizes all provided at the Community Duel Day. Players were welcome to come play in either a beginners or competitive division and enjoy the entire afternoon playing Kaijudo with kids and adults of all ages.

“We had 54 players turn up to play and Thai, Emily and Keith from Royal LePage were all on hand to join us for the afternoon festivities,” said Gruber, noting he was happy with community response to the event.

“Even with big Kaijudo events taking place in some major cities this weekend, we were still the largest event taking place this weekend.”

Kaijudo is one of the popular collectable card games being played at Good Times on a regular basis, anyone can learn and it is fast paced and exciting.

“Good Times is the global leader for Kaijudo in North America,” said Gruber.

“We host events larger here in Prince Rupert than anywhere else in the world and two of our young players, Kevin and Tyler Winther, will be representing our town and shop at World Championships in Seattle this summer.”
