NAVA Gamer's Gathering, September 28th: "There Is NO NAVA This Month"
NAVA = North Atlantic Videogame Aficionados. This is a FREE event bringing gamers together for competition, trading, and chatter.
Previously at NAVA...
- In our last episode "How To Take Down A Giant" we explored some of the "little guy" systems that were in a market full of big guys. Epoch Cassette Vision, 3DO, and the recently released OUYA.
- The arcade challenge was Astro Invader and Chris A scored a high 8150 points and once again walked off with the $20 prize.
- The 6pm tournament was BombSquad for the OUYA, Cristian blew up the competition and won the event.
- Games and systems traded hands between attendees who brought their own trade boxes.

This month! There is NO NAVA this month. All seriousness aside, everyone's busy with back to school, GTA V, holiday shopping, and various family functions. Since there will be NO NAVA this month, There's really no reason to describe what would have been going on that day, you probably already know that if there wasn't NO NAVA, there would be the usual assortment of game systems, trade items brought in by you and other attendees, lots of laughs, compelling conversation and fresh fruit.
Arcade challenge! Normally we'd choose a game on one of our arcade machines and challenge attendees to get the high score, but there is NO NAVA this month. Normally we'd say something like "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, but please remember to let everyone get a shot. If you get the high score, move on, and no hogging the cabinet!". But we won't say that this time.
Tournament! Naturally there's no tournament, because there is NO NAVA this month. Ordinarily on the last Saturday of every month for the past 8 years we'd have a tournament of some kind at a NAVA event. Sign-ups would have begun at 3pm, the tournament would have started around 6pm and it would have been first-come, first-served in this FREE-to-join tournament.
Since there is NO NAVA this month, you don't have to remember to bring things to trade! Also you won't have to wear your NAVA or Digital Press t-shirt for the maximum discount on store purchases. Finally, there's no reason to bring your Nintendo 3DS to share street passes... because it's NOT NAVA time!
