NAVA Gamer's Gathering, July 26th: "Nintendo World Championships 2014"
NAVA = North Atlantic Videogame Aficionados. This is a FREE event bringing gamers together for competition, trading, and chatter.
Previously at NAVA...
- In last month's event, we hosted our very first live auction. Items won by attendees include Sega 32X Web of Fire, a Vectrex console, a complete collection of Suikoden games and strategy guides and much more.
- Multi-player games filled the player galleries, including 4-player setups of GoldenEye, Smash Bros Melee and Bomberman '93.
- The arcade challenge was Williams' JOUST. Jeff Spega scored the day's high of 73,650 and won the $20 prize.
- Games and systems traded hands between attendees who brought their own trade boxes.

This month! We're holding an official unofficial Nintendo World Championships tournament at the store. Unlike our typical tournament nights, this will begin when NAVA begins at 3pm and end at 9pm. The highest score at that time will win the reproduction version of the Nintendo World Championships game that we'll be using for the event! In addition, real Nintendo tournament items will be on display, including the original Nintendo World Championships 1990, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox tournament cartridges as well as some of the memorabilia from those events. Reproductions of these games as well as the Genesis Blockbuster Championship will all be out for everyone to play.
Arcade challenge! Since we're all about CHAMPIONS on this day, let's finally find a Street Fighter II Champion Edition CHAMPION. It's going to be you vs. the arcade cabinet on its hardest setting. 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!
