  • By RuneX, in Frontpage,


    Hello all, hope you had a great weekend. We are back to normal schedule here on Xbox after taking a small break from scheduled activities last week. We're excited to showcase the rest of our activities and 'Fright Nights' for the rest of October. Starting with a return to Destiny 2 to celebrate the 'Festival of the Lost' this week, we are featuring a variety of titles for you to play in a group setting. We're also holding our inaugural event for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 this Friday night! Hope you can join us.
    Please note that we do not have an event this Saturday night due to a staff meeting. Thank you for your understanding!
    Fright Night Week Notice - Next week, starting on October 24th, we will be holding our special 'Fright Night' week here on Xbox with games such as DOOM, GTA Online, Minecraft, and Friday the 13th being featured as we celebrate Halloween. Below is a brief outline of what is to come:
    AJSA Fright Night Week [Xbox One] [October 24th to October 28th]
    Weds. Oct. 24rd - DOOM - 7:00pm EST
    - We're literally going to Hell to fight Demons - Thurs. Oct. 25th - GTA Online - 7:30pm EST
    - Halloween Costume Contest & Brawl - Fri. Oct. 26th - CLASSIFIED
    - Don't call us...we'll call you - Sat. Oct 27th - Minecraft - 7:30pm EST
    - Trick or Treating + Building contest - Sun. Oct. 28th - Friday the 13th: the Video Game - 7:00pm EST
    - End the Halloween week with Jason and the Crystal Lake gang! - Featured Game Nights [October 17th & October 21st]
    Xbox Game Nights were introduced back in January of this year. These are local AJSA Xbox Club activities that are normally held during days where we have no events scheduled. These organized play sessions are structured to be more loose and laidback, creating more opportunities for us as a community to reach out to more games and play even more with each other.
    For additional information on Game Nights/Weekly Events, check out our Xbox Community Information thread.
    Wednesday Oct 17th - Paladins - 7:00pm EST - Host: Sickshock6
    - 'Dark Tides' Halloween themed in-game activities - Sunday Oct 21st - Dead by Daylight - 7:00pm EST - Host: Sickshock6
    - First time we're featuring Dead by Daylight on Xbox - --------------------
    How Can I Join An Xbox One Activity? - For new members/first time event participants, I highly encourage you to add all the hosts as your friend on Xbox Live (Gamertags are listed for every host below). You can also join the AJSA Xbox Club and add hosts/members there. All event and game night parties are launched from the Club. Additionally, please review our Code of Conduct. To learn more about the AJSA Xbox One Division, check out our Community Information thread.
    All Xbox Live 'Weekly Event' & 'Game Night' parties are open and participants can join freely without restriction. Communication is done primarily in the Xbox Live Party system. In case of emergency, we may use the AJSA Discord. We accept and make adjustments for people who are shy in large groups and/or for people who have no mics.
    If by chance you do not have the host as a friend, please message the host for an invite to the game/party during the activity and then exchange friend requests upon entry to the party. Most, if not all, parties will be visible to all Xbox Club members. Look under "Looking for Group" at the start/during an event to view the event party and join up.
    If you would like to give advance notice to the host that you would like to play, you are free to do so. Otherwise keep note of the activity start times and join the host's Xbox Live party to begin. If you have any questions, please contact me directly at "RuneX" on the forums or on Xbox Live.

For the event itself you will need the Windows 10 version of Minecraft.
