    Hey all! This week will mark the return of normalcy here in the Xbox community as return from our break. Following the conclusion of our Summer Series (recap provided below), we went on a week and a half break to recharge and refuel after a busy summer! Once again I would like to thank everyone who came out to support our Weekly Events and Game Nights these past three months. We hope you will enjoy what we have in store for September as we explore new titles and return to community favorites.

    Our objective is to try out new games, have fun, and explore new worlds. Many of the titles that will be shown will be quirky and different so an open mind is very much suggested when hopping into these games for the first time. We will be keeping track of all participants and for those interested we will be asking you for feedback on the concept, what games we should do in the future, and other thoughts.
    To kick off the series we are showcasing 'Human Fall Flat' this Thursday. We hope you can join us!

    This Saturday, the 8th, we here at the EF will do something a tad different with nothing but a little Minecraft building session. The event itself will take place on the AJSA Community Realm, which is available to both the Xbox One/Xbox and PC sides of our community. For the event itself you will need the Windows 10 version of Minecraft. Should you have the Java Version, you can claim a free copy by logging into your Mojang account, find and click on ‘Claim Your Free Copy’ to upgrade. At the event, you will be given an invite code to directly join the event. I hope to see you there!
    The event will take place this at 9pm BST/ 4pm EDT on our Discord Server.
