Teen Button Battle, April 10 - 22

This month’s button battle is for the gamers out there. Which game has the most dedicated followers? Who will win the battle between Dungeons & Dragons versus Magic: The Gathering? Come by the Teen Area at any time between April 10-22 to pick up your button that casts your vote.

What is a button battle? It’s where teens vote on two or more of their favorite fandoms by taking a button they can pin to a backpack or anything else. The fandom that has the most buttons taken (aka “votes”), they are the one that wins!
