Event Recap: Silicon Valley, April 2018

Fun, random things always happen at our events, and this month was no exception. Our host, DROdio, treated us to an auditory journey through some EDM tunes, and after taking down the win (and with the slightest bit of cajoling), Roman showed off his EDM shuffle on the dance floor! We may need to institute a new tradition: the winner’s dance ?     Congratulations to [...]

A big thank you to all of our sponsors for supporting the [...]

We appreciate the Dojo's hospitality, and the support of all our sponsors - we couldn't do this without you. The downpour and resulting traffic made this game an intimate affair with only [...]
