NAVA Gamer's Gathering, December 29th: "Mayans Lie"
NAVA = North Atlantic Videogame Aficionados. This is a FREE event bringing gamers together for competition, trading, and chatter.
Previously at NAVA...
- In November, we celebrated the games that were never commercially released for our favorite systems: homebrews and prototypes.
- A special exhibit of prototypes and homebrews was spread out over two tables, courtesy of Videogame History Museum.
- The arcade challenge was Atari's "Weather War" (aka "Cloud 9" in MAME) Chris A won the challenge yet again.
- Games and systems traded hands between attendees who brought their own trade boxes.

This month! 'Tis the season of RE-GIFTING and instead of the 6PM tournament we're going to give everyone a chance to re-wrap an old gift and get a new one in exchange. Simply bring any new or at least UNUSED videogame-related item worth $20 or more gift-wrapped. We'll log you in when you arrive and put it under our tree. Everyone who contributes gets someone else's gift in exchange. At 6PM we'll unwrap the gifts! We've had lots of great stories from this event in the past. Be a part of it!
Arcade challenge! As this event seems to occur after the Mayan calendar predicts "the end of days", let's celebrate a new Mayan world with Data East's 1984 arcade gem "Mysterious Stones". Though it doesn't seem to state that it takes place in any Mayan locale, it certainly looks to us that it does and that's good enough. Be the best at the game on this one day by logging the highest score on our arcade cabinet by 9pm 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. Learn the game, then practice the game.
Tournament! We're doing Secret Santa at 6pm, see above for details.
Remember to get your trade boxes in order and wear your NAVA or 2012 Digital Press t-shirt for the maximum discount on store purchases... it's NAVA time!
