What are the Academic Games?
Academic Games is a set of individual and team competitions in both logic-based cube games and reading games where team members compete head to head with like minded individuals from other schools. The Brother Martin Academic Games team plays the mathematical academic games of Equations and On-Sets, the language arts game of Propaganda, and the social studies game of Presidents in the New Orleans Academic Games League. The NOAGL is a member of the Academic Games Leagues of America. This year, Brother Martin’s team will host an informal LinguiSHTIK tournament so that our team members can compete in that game at the AGLOA National Tournament.

What do we do?
Brother Martin’s Academic Games team competes against several other schools from all over the greater New Orleans metro area at local competition and at the state level. Students who place highest overall in local competition can represent Brother Martin and NOAGL at the annual AGLOA National Tournament held in the spring.
