NAVA Gamer's Gathering, December 28th: "The RE-Gifting Season 2013"
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, NAVA became "Handheld Gaming Expo 2013". Dozens of 70's and 80's dedicated handhelds were put on display and out to play.
- We celebrated the store's first employee Jenn's last week in NJ (though we expect her to visit).
- The arcade challenge was Depth Charge. Devin M walked away with the $20 prize.
- Games and systems traded hands between attendees who brought their own trade boxes.
See it all in our photo gallery section at the store's website and feel free to comment!
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, it's that easy. We've had lots of great stories from this event in the past. Be a part of it!
Arcade challenge! As we hunker down for the winter we're going to bust out a classic warm-weather to take us away. It's the 30-year anniversary of Taito's "Water Ski". It's a tricky game to get the hang of but once you do, it's very ZEN. 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!
Remember to get your trade boxes in order so we can all buy, sell and trade together. Wear your NAVA or Digital Press t-shirt for the maximum discount on store purchases. Also, bring your Nintendo 3DS to share street passes... it's NAVA time!
