NAVA Gamer's Gathering, June 28th: "Auction Night"
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, we celebrated Pac-Man's 34th birthday with a vast swath of games from his history, a mini museum, and cupcakes.
- The arcade challenge was Namco's Pac-Land. Cristian T scored the day's high of 90,740 and won the $20 prize.
- The 6pm tournament was Pac-Man Royal rumble, a 4-player frenzy. Scott L emerged victorious.
- Games and systems traded hands between attendees who brought their own trade boxes.

This month! It's multi-player madness in June, with all game systems supporting 4 player games. Huddle around the set with your NAVA pals as we all tackle GoldenEye 007 (N64), Bomberman (TurboGrafx-16), Smash Bros Melee (GameCube) and more!
Arcade challenge! One of the best-known 4-player arcade games is Atari's 1985 hit "Gauntlet". Featuring four different character types, it introduced the concept of teamwork. Sorry, but this time you're ON YOUR OWN. 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!
Auction! At 6pm we're going to hold the store's very first "CGE Auction". John Hardie will preside over the event. Every attendee is welcome to bring one item to sell in the auction (we may use more than one depending on the interest level), so bring something SPECIAL. The auction will run no longer than 2 hours. If you've never seen John as auctioneer, you're in for a real treat!
NOTE: This is not a charity auction and you're not expected to give anything to "the house". This is NAVA, we're hosting it for fun, all proceeds go directly to the auction item's original owners.
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!
