    - Dead by Daylight with Wookie, Melon & Sickshock -
    The latest Xbox video on the AJSA Gaming channel on Youtube features the return of the ol' Wookie & Pals crew. For those who remember, the Wookie & Pals was an series created last year to help produce original gaming content for the channel. Spanning 10 episodes, this motley crew wreaked comedic havoc wherever they went. The series was put on a hiatus after one of the members, StraightUpMelon, left for college. Now that Melon is back from college for Summer vacation, they got back together to play once more! This time on Dead by Daylight you will see Sickshock trying to "teach" Wookie and Melon how to play the game. Enjoy!

    Hello all, I hope you're having a great Monday! Welcome to our Xbox community article for this week. This news series is our way to report and share with you on what is going on with the AJSA in the Xbox community on a weekly basis. We'll have updates on current projects, upcoming activities, community content ranging from interviews to Youtube videos, event recaps and more. These articles will always contain a copy our Game Nights schedule for the week to keep folks informed about what titles we're featuring and supporting. If you're interesting in getting involved with us on Xbox I'd encourage you to check out our 'Xbox Community Guidebook' where you can get up to speed on what we're all about and how you can start playing with us. If you need help and/or have any questions, please feel free to reach out to any member of the AJSA Xbox Staff for assistance. We'll be more than happy to help you out with any questions you have regarding the community.
    Xbox Reports
    - Summer Games Update -
    I'd like to extend my thanks to everyone who came out during our Summer Games Opening Ceremony this past weekend. An extended thanks to our Summer Games organizers as well who made sure everything ran as smoothly as possible.
    We kicked off our latest community Game Night with Overwatch, Rocket League, and the return of our Fight Nights with Mortal Kombat 11. We're currently working on a Rocket League highlights video that we're aiming for a release this Wednesday June 26th on the AJSA Gaming Youtube channel.
    I hope everyone had a great time! Thank you all once again. Our Summer Games party continues this weekend and beyond. Please note our July Summer Games outline will be published next week so if you want an early look at what is to come, be sure to check out the upcoming article.
    AJSA Gaming Youtube
    - Star Wars: Battlefront II Game Night -
    The latest Xbox video on the AJSA Gaming channel on Youtube features highlights from our Star Wars: Battlefront II Game Night held on June 14th, 2019. This Game Night was part of our Road to Summer Games series. This is the first time we've featured Battlefront II on the AJSA Gaming Youtube channel. Battlefront II has come a long way within the community and thanks to the tireless efforts by Sickshock to keep the game supported, it has emerged as one of our most consistent Game Night titles. Enjoy the video!
    Weekend Game Night Schedule - June 28th to June 30th

    How can I attend a Game Night? - For new members/first time Game Night participants, I highly encourage you to add all the hosts as your friend on Xbox Live (Gamertags are listed for every host below). We also encourage you to join the community Xbox Club (all hosts can be found in the Club roster as well). We use the Club for a variety of purposes to unite members of the community and play together. As an extra reminder for new members, please make sure to review our Code of Conduct.
    To learn more about the AJSA on Xbox One, visit out our Community Information thread.
    For Game Nights and other community activities we use the 'Xbox Live Party' that are created from the Club for communication, gatherings, and other purposes. In the case of an emergency where Xbox Live is down and we need to group up, we will use the AJSA Discord channel as a backup. In our parties we fully accept and make adjustments for people who are shy in groups and/or for people who have no mics.
    If by chance you do not have a Game Night host on your friend list, please message the host for an invite to the game/party during the Game Night and then exchange friend requests upon entry to the party. All Game Night parties will be visible to Xbox Club members under the "Looking for Group" section. You can join the party via the Club or through the profile of the host.
    If you would like to give advance notice to the host that you would like to participate in a particular Game Night, you are free to do so. If you have any questions, please reach out to any members of the AJSA Xbox One staff and we will be happy to assist you.
    All Game Nights are casual gatherings aimed at bringing people together to have a good time and enjoy their games in a group setting.
