NAVA Gamer's Gathering, July 28th: "In 3D"
NAVA = North Atlantic Videogame Aficionados. This is a FREE event bringing gamers together for competition, trading, and chatter.
Previously at NAVA...
- In June, we pretended it was wintertime by setting up a plastic snowman and playing winter-based videogames.
- The arcade challenge was for Konami's Pengo. Clifton's own Mike Purdy walked away with the cash prize.
- The tournament was "fastest down the mountain", which basically meant score the best time on Mountain Madness Super Pro Skiing for Intellivision. Up-and-coming challenger Frank Minichini walked away victorious.
- Games and systems traded hands between attendees who brought their own trade boxes.
See it all in our our new photo gallery section on the store's website and feel free to comment!
This month! NAVA is in 3D... THREE dimensions of fun. We recently added a nice big 42" 3DTV to our arsenal of event tools and this will be the NAVA debut, so expect to see some of the cool new PlayStation 3 3D titles in glorious tri-dimensionality. PLUS, we're busting out some OLD 3D stuff so if you've never played a Sega Master System with 3D glasses you're going to get a shot. And if you're REALLY NICE, we'll even steal the Vectrex 3D Imager from our museum vault and give you a real old-school, high-tech, vector-based treat.
Arcade challenge! Though our store version of the game isn't actually in 3D as it was originally intended in the arcade, there is still a certain amount of "comin at ya" to be found in the 2D version of Sega's 1982 sleeper Subroc 3D. Be the best at the game on this one day by logging the highest score on our arcade cabinet by 8pm and win a nifty $20 gift certificate and possibly get your name added to the "House Champion" tournament plaque on the Wall of Fame just above the arcade section of the store. Arcade challenge games are set to FREE PLAY all day. Get your practicing in now!
So let's get three dimensional, and as always remember to get your trade boxes in order and wear your NAVA t-shirt (or get one) for the maximum discount on store purchases... it's NAVA time!
