This thread is dedicated to listing schools who have pioneered in making Redemption® an official school activity.  Post of PM me if yours is one of them be it a grade/high school, college, or university (include name and City/State/Country/Website Address).

Pray that this might be the beginning of yet another new exciting area of tournament types -- Interschool Tournaments!

Get your school recognized if people play Redemption®.  Organize a Redemption® Club in your school!

FYI: Tournament costs posted on Cactus are wrong ... they are planning to correct the error, but just so you know the costs are $1-2 depending on tournament type!

I want my school to start allowing us to do Redemption play after school for at least 2 hours. That way we can trade cards and play the game. I go to a Christian Academy. How do can I do this?

I disagree.  Don't go straight to the principal.  Talk a teacher into being your Redemption group's sponsor.  They will then work things out with the administration of your school to make it possible, and will also probably provide a place to play (their classroom).

Whoah, I think it's so cool that Redemption is becoming an official event in Christian schools. I hope it spreads. :)

Peace all.  I've moved to revive and make this topic sticky.  I dedicate this topic to one of my nephews, Claude, who had dreamed that one day Redemption would witness the growth of inter-school tournaments.

Please see updates on the first post.

Godbless!

Do colleges count?  We'd compete against other Division 2 schools, right?

My HS would be willing to compete against colleges in Redemption.  In fact, I'll challenge SomeKittens to bring down his college crew whenever he wants and we'll have a tournament of his school vs. mine :)

I'd actually feel pretty good about our chances :)

That was my motivation for starting the Colleges thread, but it seems that everyone's in grad school.  Whadya mean "feel good about your chances?"

I was waiting for his reasoning so I could question his sources and declare his logic absurd.  This being the internet and all.
